Very hyped hostel and happily surprised to find this is East Africa. Music was really good. Restaurant has a nice menu and great selection of drinks. Didn't use all the facilities but am sur the TV room would be great during a rainy day.

Great location, with loads of restaurants and services in walking distance. It's a very social place with generally lovely staff and fantastic food (especially the pizza). I stay on most of my work visits to Kampala.


Kampala is Uganda's national and commercial capital bordering Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake. Hills covered with red-tile villas and trees surround an urban centre of contemporary skyscrapers. In this downtown area, the Uganda Museum explores the country's tribal heritage through an extensive collection of artefacts. On nearby Mengo Hill is Lubiri Palace, the former seat of the Buganda Kingdom. The National Theatre hosts music, dance and film events, and has an adjacent complex selling local crafts. Lively Owino and Nakasero markets sell food alongside shoes and secondhand clothes. The latter is at the bottom of Nakasero Hill, Kampala's business and government centre. South of the city, British colonial town Entebbe offers beaches, plus boating and fishing trips on Lake Victoria. Kampala is also a gateway for exploring the rest of Uganda, from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a mountain gorilla refuge, to Queen Elizabeth National Park, whose wetlands, rainforests and plains shelter lions and elephants.
