My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel at the beginning and end of our five day safari. We predominantly chose this location because we were trying to save some money and the reviews seemed pretty good. Its not really a couples oriented environment (so keep that in mind) but we didn't mind at all. Everyone that was there was super friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves. Plus it includes food and laundry. The "mamas" that did the cooking were as fantastic as their food. Internet was also very cheap. I would recommend.
**One thing - we were the only one there not staying long term to do some volunteer work. Everyone was really surprised that we were only staying one night at a time. This didn't affect our stay but I mention it because I think it helps describe the type of place it is.
