I stayed here 4 nights in a single room (30,000 UGX per night) to attend university meetings during the day. The bed is OK, provided with a mosquito net. There is 1 light switch in the room but no socket to charge your electronics, this can only be done in the bar where you have to stay close and keep an eye. Wifi is free.
There is hot water in the shared showers, they are basic but acceptably clean.
Was woken up very early in the morning by loudly speaking staff. Also, the coming and going of other guests can be disturbing.
The place has changed a lot compared to 2 years ago when I stayed here while travelling through Uganda. It is darker, loud music blasting all day and night, you can't escape to have a quiet moment, except to your room. There are fewer monkeys outside (heard them but didn't see them). It seems like they are trying to put this place on the map as a night club, but hereby not paying attention to tired travellers who want to rest, have a beer, talk (not shout over the loud music!), read, plan their trip,...
I would only recommend this place because it is really the cheapest option that I know of.
However, you pay extras: breakfast is not included, you pay 1,000UGX for a towel (not available at night),...
I hope to find a better address to stay on a budget for my next trip to Kampala.
