Rwenzori Trekkers Hostel

Hostel in Rwenzori National Park

Run by Rwenzori Trekking Services, this scenic and peaceful option is in Kyanjuki just above Kilembe, 12km outside Kasese, and is a perfect starting point if you plan on tackling this side of the Rwenzori. Rooms, all with shared bathrooms, are in restored miners’ housing and are slightly run-down with peeling linoleum floors, but they're fine for the price.

The restaurant has a great trekking menu comprising T-bone steaks, pasta and vegetarian options. The hostel does some excellent work in the community, and also offers village walks and cultural performances.
