I have spent two days in Mosh and opted for the place through booking.com. The place is clean, safe and has a cool African vibe. The staff is very helpful and kind. A cold beer in the evening was also enjoyable. I had the pleasure of being invited by manager Hans to his place for dinner with his family - excellent food and great host! Hans took care of all the trips around the place including Kikuletwa Hotsprings. Great stay - many thanks for everything!

Great host and owner, Moses. Will help with anything, and so will the staff. The service so far has been excellent, and the owner will gladly listen to your feedback and is eager to improve the quality of your stay. For example, he put up hooks for mosquito nets in one room that didnt have this quickly after he was noticed. He was also very flexible, when the other half of my group came from a unhabitable hotel and asked for amnesty. I moved in three weeks ago and got a good deal because i am staying for a while to volunteer in St.Joseph hospital. The location is ideal for me, with a five minute walk to the hospital. I havent met any volunteers who pay a lower price for their accommodation, and they dont have a refreshing pool like we do. I feel like a get a very good, fair deal here, without any negotiation. The area is peaceful and there are shops and local cafes nearby. The hostel has single and double rooms as well as dorms, and i think that the hostel has a high material standard, actually quite luxurious relative to Moshi in general. Plus it seems like Moses is working really hard to improve the place - the other day six-seven bikes appeared on hostel grounds for the guests to use. His ability to adjust and improve is really a good quality.  My room has a balcony and a good view of Kilimanjaro on clear days, and a fan that keeps the room relatively cool on warm nights. A nice big cabinet that can accommodate your belongings, with a private bathroom.  Taxi to the town centre takes 5-10 minutes and cost 5000 tsh (2.5 USD), even cheaper with motorcycle taxi or "Tuk-tuk". There is a list of trusted taxis etc in the hostel, and the owner also has a tour company with nearby offices where you can arrange trips to coffee plantations, hot springs, waterfalls, safaris and the great mountain of Kilimanjaro. The place has an amazing chef, Ben. He makes good breakfast every morning (scrambled eggs!), and you can order lunch and\or dinner for 10 000 tsh (4.5usd). I personally think the dinners and lunches here is better here than any of the #1 tripadvisor restaurants we have visited so far here in Moshi, at a lower price.  The hostels clientele ranges from old solo travellers to middelaged Kilimanjaro climbers to young groups, this place seems to please everyone.  I would definitely come back, whether im seeing the city, going to kilimanjaro or volunteering at a hospital and looking for cheap, long-term accommodation. All tools are here for you to have a great stay.

This hostel had more than every other we had been to. You could do your own cooking. It was secure. There was a cook. And basically always someone ready to fulfill your every need. The rooms were spacious (even for hostelgoérs) and the owner was very personable and helped us with most of the activities. We loved it. Though I think we would have loved it even more if we would have been able to discuss the activities a bit more beforehand (in terms of price, duration etc.).
