Please note that this review is for the restaurant only, not the hotel. This is my favorite place in Juba, for the peaceful atmosphere along the Nile above all else. The food, service, and drinks are all average, but I can't speak to the lodging.

I was happy to be back here for 4 days this month. I stayed back in March, so I knew what to expect. I stayed in one of the bungalows close to the river, which are quite comfortable. The air conditioner did struggle to get the temperature down to a comfortable level, but it did in the end. Aside from...

We went to AFEX restaurant for a Sunday lunch. The location is exceptional, we sat under a mango tree, along the banks of the river Nile, drinking a cold beer watching boats going up and down the river. We had grilled chicken and a salad which was clean and delicious. My favourite spot in Juba. I highly recommend it.

Once you can find it the restaurant is in a lovely location alongside the Nile. You will need to sign in which is good for security but worryingly leaving vehicle outside the main gate. You then have to walk past the accommodation which appears to be containers to get to the restaurant and riverside. There is plenty of local activity...

The environment and the rooms are amazing! The service is top notch and makes one feel right at home. All the staff are attentive and are ready to help to ensure your comfort during your stay. make sure you sample the cocktails made by Ndoto at the bar...be assured that you will keep coming back for more!

Nice location next to the Nile. Basic accommodation in containers. Functional and clean. Food is fine and the atmosphere is pleasant. good security. Not really much to say. When in Juba it just depends on what you want.

a container hotel, with a few solid-builds. all rooms clean, comfortable, mozzie-nets with sufficient AC. didn't get food poisoning from the buffet and have some promo nights. bar staff are friendly. Internet was fast-ish, cool view of the nile. Sad looking pool. okay for a few days or for pizza night.

Great place to eat on an evening with great selection and themed menu, refurbished bar..Located beside the White Nile, Mixed crowd but very spacious. Secure compound but be wary of leaving as a visitor at night. Drive to and from only.

I gave this place an average rating keeping in mind other places I've been to worldwide, which may not be fair considering the current environment in South Sudan. In Juba, you're paying for the security more than anything. I was traveling for business and stayed for 7 days. This is a secure compound, which I only left going to/from the...

I had travelled to Juba on business and was setup at the Afex camp next to the Nile - it was a great experience. They really treated me well! I was setup in one of the hard units and it was excellent. The staff were good, friendly and helpful. The camp had visible security and a great view of the...

“Choose a room near the Nile River...good view. Don't choose the rooms at the back because the smell beside the slaughter house is not so pleasant.”
