Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom
July 14, 2006
The hostel is located in the richer part of Dar and is close to most things you need - the bank, post office, supermarket, westernised style restaurants.
The hostel itself is clean in all areas and fairly large. Facilities include: small restaurant (open air) that sells water at about 50p to £1 but it depends on who you got to serve you and a fair breakfast, pool table, basketball court and waiting area.
The rooms were for 2 people and again clean. The bed linen and mozzy nets were clean and no holes, the rooms i saw all had fans that worked and some even had balconies. There were male and female bathrooms on each of the floors - 2 showers in each and 2 sit down toilets. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked with toilet roll, only downside was that they only had cold water.
Taxi's and Dala Dalas can be picked up outside the hostel but you will need to bargain.
I would recommend this hostel for its price, cleanliness and closeness to the centre of Dar.
