    The staff worked hard to make sure everything worked properly and you could get great recommendations for everything in Kampala as well as Uganda as a whole. The hostel is also created intentionally to encourage interaction with other guests, as desired. And I love the artwork! A few guests had returned to the hostel because they wanted the great staff support available at the hostel.
