By far this is the kindest place we went to. This is a family run hostel, that has mostly dorm rooms, but they have so many that you'll probably get your own private room (they don't tend to stuff as many people as possible in the rooms).
At a very quiet area of fort portal (for some reason the Lonely Planet book we had said it was "around fort portal" even though its just 1500ugx by boda-boda from town center), with a big lawn and very nice hosting family, you could try all the local food you want, or might even get a taste (without even ordering).
prices are very fair and camping is also an option. hot shower really works.
when in FP, don't hesitate - go to YES.
