“Molly & Staff Are Great!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I stayed at the Golden Monkey on two separate occasions while passing through Kisoro. The owner/manager Molly and her staff are great. Very friendly and accommodating. The guesthouse itself is decent for the price I paid (Ush 25,000)...reasonably clean and comfortable. Food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Plus, I can't forget the resident dogs "Blanket" and "Bunny" as well. Kisoro itself is nothing to write home about, but if you find yourself passing through The Golden Monkey is a good budget choice.

Reviewed March 1, 2010

We stayed in this place for a couple of nights en route between Kabale and Rwanda. Kisoro is lively on a Friday for the market, but fairly quiet the rest of the time. The Golden Monkey has friendly staff, clean if basic rooms (20,000Ush for a twin) and shared facilities. The food is particularly good - the vegetarian chilli comes highly recommended - and the staff are friendly. It's part of a local community business group, as well as the camp site at Mgahinga Park and the lovely treehouse/camp site at Lake Mutanda.
