final suggestions on Dar es Sallam hostel choice

thank you for the replies

but i could keep in contact only with Econo lodge suggested by footprint Tanzania guide and Luther house seggested by the Lonely Planet guide (Safari Inn and Jambo did not reply to my mail) among acceptable mid price hostel.


Double fan room Tanzania shillings 24,000/- or appr US $ 20

Double Airconditioned room Tanz shillings 35,000/ or appr US $ 30

Luther house

double room at 30 US $ per night, breakfast included

As I have to confim the booking as soon as possibile, can anybody suggest me which of the two hostels is the preferrable for position, rooms, and atmosphere?

Is te air condition system relly necessary or suggested?

thank you very much again for your prevuois replies

Econo lodge is fine and very close to both Jambo inn and Safari inn, be a little careful in Libya street where the budget hotels are located, there are scammer who walk next to you or are in a taxi with the driver, who smoke illegal subtances and then the fake police come and say you are with them and then blackmail you for as much as possible even to the point of taking you to a ATM.
