“Suited us fine for a night”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Spent one night in Dar at the YMCA, arrived on the ferry from Zanzibar which was a 20 minute walk away. Rooms were simple and clean, bathrooms were not great but definately not the worse we saw. The canteen does cheap food and drinks which we really liked and there is also an internet cafe downstairs. Really easy to get taxis out the front, 5 minutes from a subway! and the main post office. Nothing fancy but was safe and suited us for one night.

Stayed February 2012, travelled as a couple

i choose it because of good area (in city center in front of Holiday inn hotel and not far from Subway fast food) but inside the hostel is not good. it seems there is nobody take care of cleaning, and the showers and toilets are terrible (there is no room with private toilet and shower). also there nobody in charge during the night, yes nobody! not even a reception and a guard!
the restaurent is good and at least you can find beer there! (before 9pm)

Room Tip: you dont have any option, all the same!
