I stayed at the Arusha backpackers after completing a climb to kilimanjaro, and it was exactly what i needed after a long exhausting 7 days in the mountain. I had a single room, it was very small with a strong fan which was very useful in the heat of february. The size of the room was not an issue for me , as i only used it to sleep and spent the rest of my time in the rooftop recovering from my climb. Staff is nice , however they will not not go out of their way and not vey knowledgable about the area, restaurants etc. terrace was comfortable, with average wifi and decent food. They offer laundry, and it is expensive . They probably know that post kilimanjaro everyone needs everything washed and taking advantage of it. Overall enjoyed my stay and met other travelers and it was good location to get around. Definitely recommend it .
