Lonely Planet review
No-frills rooms in a small compound around the corner from the YWCA, and marginally quieter (though the step up in price from the YWCA isn’t justified). There’s a canteen with inexpensive meals. Men and women are accepted.
Our independent authors have visited YMCA and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Dar es Salaam.
