I was going gorilla tracking in Uganda, but entering the country through Rwanda unlike most trackers. I needed a lot help organizing my gorilla permits and travel around Bwindi. Lucky for me I contacted Golden Monkey Guest House to make a booking and I found out that they also have an in-house tour company, Virunga Adventure Tours. Through communicating with Jackson on Facebook they helped me arrange everything, and once I arrived at the guest house everything was prepared for my tracking experience.

Martha at the front desk was a pleasure to work with, and the owner Sheba was the life of the party. The guest house was full of happy customers (some drop-ins were actually turned away because the hotel was fully booked) and Sheba spent the evenings socializing with us and other guests. I spent several weeks travelling around East Africa and the Golden Monkey Guest House stands out as one the places that invests the most into taking care of its guests. I can't imagine a better place in tiny Kisoro.

This place was a great stopover while travelling through. Stayed here 3 nights and the staff were great - even went out to the shops for me when I needed something. They also let us take over the music system in the bar and throw our own mini party! Cheap drinks and good food. Clean rooms, clean toilets and shower... What more could you ask for?

Maybe my expectations were too high reading the reviews here but I was dissapointed by this place and even more by the staff.
We had a reservation for a triple and a twin room but got a double bed instead. They were conviced there was a couple among us.
The rooms were average and nothing special. The price was right, is the best thing I can say.

I did not stay in the accomodation here (but was told by guests that they were disappointed) but i have eaten here several times, both on this trip and previous ones. The food is very reasonable but its best to ask them not to salt anything otherwise you may be in for a salty surprise. It is not a posh eating place by any means but is fine for the price you pay. The staff are friendly but we always ordered the food in advance to make sure we did not have hrs to wait.

I rolled into town from Rwanda and stayed at the local version of the Temple of Doom until I ran into a fellow mzungu who told me about this place. I immediately went over and checked in. The staff is great and they can set you up with whatever you want to do (recommend the Gorilla trekking, even though it's pricey). If you're there at the right time, they'll even fry up some grasshoppers!
