Property Information

We have quickly become Kampala’s best hostel and backpackers within the centre of the city. We have 24hr security, our reception never closes and all of our rooms are cleaned daily. We try to be adventure tourism friendly, so if your travelling with a bike, a kayak or anything else, we can store it securely and safely for you.We’re located in Kololo, just near Kisementi and Acacia avenue. We are close to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and shops, including Acacia Mall, National Museum and Afriart Gallery. With the traffic in Kampala getting worse and worse everyday (especially in the rainy season when roads turn into brown rivers- yeahhh its a bit crazy!),  location is key – trust us, you’ll want to be central. We also know the rest of the city pretty well too, so if you need directions or want some tips we can help you out!
