    African House Hostel”

    Reasonable price

    Difficult to find. It took 30 minutes walk from the Ramsis Railway Station, although it is only 5 minute walking distance. Location is after all good, but hard to find. Suffered from mosquito bites.

    A decent place with homely touch”

    Spacious rooms with homely colors and high ceilings give you feeling you are at home.The staff is very helpful,no pushing for tours.many free things are provided like Wifi and drinks and toilete papers.We felt every moment that we are more than welcome.
    Breakfast can be better,only jam and cheese and eggs+bread and a drink.It was good but can be better

    The african hostel's building looks like an ancient palace in scotland,we have been told that this building is the oldest in downtown-160 years old-it is amazing.We would stay here again.

    На свою цену соответствует”

    Оценка низкая из за состояния ванны-туалета-умывальника. Это одна комната размером 1*1 м! Там стоит туалет, на другой стенке висит душ (почти прямо над туалетом), а справа умывальник. Вода постоянно текла на пол непонятно из каких труб. Смыв в туалете работал непонятно и плохо. Но интерьер у них очень обрадовал, стены яркие, разукрашенные в разные цвета, много картин. В номере прохладно. Персонал приветливый, WiFi ловит не очень. Расположение тоже нормальное, относительно в центре. Завтрак вполне съедобный: варёное яйцо, хлеб с джемом, плавленные сырки и чай.
