Welcome to the Friendly Gecko Guest House!
We are a socially responsible hostel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We offer convenient and safe accommodation for a reasonable price.
Our guest house is located outside of the city centre of Dar es Salaam in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. With our large garden and community areas we offer a convenient and relaxed place to recover after a hectic and hot day in "downtown" Dar es Salaam. We are also the home of 6-12 volunteers who support projects in the neighbourhood (the help2kids children's home and a public school for children between 5 and 11 years old). Join our community and take part of our daily adventures. We are more a home than a guest house, we love to meet new people, to eat/drink/go out together with and to show you around.
As accommodation we offer private rooms and dormitories. All rooms are fitted with mosquito nets and fans; there is also air-conditioning in the private rooms. Snacks and drinks (water/sodas/beer) are always for sale in the living room. There is also a TV and DVD player in our community area. Internet access is available for a low fee.
In our big garden there is a gathering area with tables, chairs and hammocks. We also offer a weekly BBQ. More pictures will follow soon.
If you have questions, or need information or support, assistance is always available from our on-site managers. We want to offer you a safe and carefree environment for your exciting new experiences in Africa.
We have a 6-bed female dorm and a 4-bed mixed dormitory. They are fully equipped with mosquito nets, fans and shelves. Each dorm has its own bathroom.
Our private rooms are also equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets, shelves and fans. Moreover you have your own bathroom.
The state run electricity supply is unfortunately not very reliable (on average we have 16 hours’ electricity per day). Therefore electronic devices such as air-conditioning or TV may not be always be available. However, we have decided not to have a generator. First of all it is not ecological and it is noisy, moreover we believe that it isn't really necessary. We always have running water, our kitchen is gas operated, we have safe candle holders in each room and bathroom and our internet works independently from the electricity.
From the airport it takes approximately 30 minutes by car to get to our guest house (depending on traffic). We advise all guests to take a taxi, bajaj (low cost transportation) or arrange for pick-up with our management team.
Direction by car: Follow the Old Bagamoyo Road towards White Sands. At the first round-about at the "White Sands" sign turn left. Then turn right the second rough road (there is a sign with "Viva Villa" on it).
