We are a couple from the USA and we selected Shamba hostel because it is close to KJO airport, and we were arriving after dark. (The town of Arusha is actually quite far from the airport.) Our arrival at the hostel actually turned out to be almost 9 PM because of a flight delay. What a relief to have dinner ready shortly after arrival! Very friendly host and very good dinner and breakfast (all included with the very modest cost!). The facility is very basic (not a luxury hotel) and could use a little art on walls to make it warmer, but the combination of location, included meals, comfortable beds, cleanliness, and outstanding staff make this place an exceptional value. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Amazing place to stay if you want to do trips around Arusha (Meru Kikuletwa hot springs, etc),. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is goooood! We loved all the plants and flowers on the domain, it is well maintained. The beer garden is a great place to enjoy some drinks and meet other travelers. Most comfortable bed we ever slept in, with additional blanket which is nice as it can get cold.
