The Red Chilli is busy with backpackers, and provides all the basics for a stay in Kampala.... Main points from my perspective:

- Atmosphere is good, with lots of friendly people around
- Food very much "does the job"
- Free Wireless internet is a massive plus, even though it's slower than a week in jail
- Rooms are a little tired. We stayed in a double room, and the mosquito net was in a terrible state
- It's a matatu or boda boda ride into town. It's too far to walk in the Ugandan heat

We were very disappointed with the hospitality at this hostel; we stayed here on 3 seperate occasions (mainly because we booked tours from them that left from the premises otherwise we wouldnt have bothered after the first time). In the Cayenne rooms there was bed bugs, totally unacceptable. The dorms before the Murchinson trip (included in the trip) were like hell, a actual sauna, to add insult to injury they charged extra for sheets remarkable considering we had booked a $286 tour with them which included the dorm bed!!!. The third night (a necesity for the end of the tour was ok). One out of three is bad, overall certain factions of the staff were quite rude and pushy and service was well below par. I have rated it okay but in reality many would rate this terrible and i was close to doing so. For foreign owned hostel more was expected and they need to lift there game before decent competition drives them out.

Room Tip: Non self contained kamers zijn goedkoper, gedeelde douches zijn prima
