From $8

Closer to Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks you wont get it! We are located just out of Karatu, with perfect views of the surroundings, proper rooms and a relaxed atmosphere - all at a very affordable rate. For a safari, volunteering opportunity or just to relax; we make it happen!

We offer singles & doubles for those seeking some privacy and dorms for those on a smaller budget. Our common room is excellent for relaxing, with a bar and a large outdoor terrace from which you can enjoy lovely views. Breakfast included!

Ngorongoro & Serengeti NPs couldn't be closer, and we are happy to help organizing your safari. If your safari has already been booked and you are just looking for a place to stay, we are your perfect hang out after an exciting day of game spotting.

If you want to make a real contribution to the Karatu community, you may be interested in our volunteer programmes. We offer a range of projects, from teaching English to working on womens empowerment. Please contact us for more information!

We aim to minimize our ecological footprint. We run on (reliable!) solar power, organise responsible safaris, get our veggies from the market and pay fair rates to our staff. Staying with us means helping preserve Africas nature and contributing to the community!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This review is long overdue as it has been just over a month since our trip to Tanzania and stay at the Umoja Eco Hostel. The big positive here is that both the owner and on-site manager showed genuine concern for our comfort and safety, not only while staying with them, but for the remainder of our trip. They truly went above and beyond and no matter the time of day, we were greeted with a warm smile. The grounds are lovely and the view from the outdoor dining area is beautiful. The property itself is a little too far to walk from the bus station and required a short cab ride. We were able to walk in and out of town during the day but wouldn't recommend doing so at night. The internet was down while we were there but hopefully is up and running now (if this is important to you, I would check in advance). That being said, we were able to organize most everything we needed through the hostel. We would definitely stay here again!
