I would recommend this hostel hands down. I wasn't staying there originally, but all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful to me anyway as I made friends with some of the guests. Therefore I decided to stay for a full weekend in the hostel. It is clean and tidy and the beds are really comfortable. The food served for dinner is absolutely delicious. There is a nice common area with a TV and DVD player, and a great garden with views of Mt Meru at the back. There was a huge mixture of people staying there, from extremely long-term volunteers, to volunteers only there for a few weeks, to couples on a safari holiday, and a mother and son who had just climbed Kili. It feels really safe and the staff are full of advice and good tips on what to do in Arusha. Plus they are extremely helpful if anyone does get in trouble, i.e. gets mugged out in town.
