Good 7.1
Pros: The owners were very nice and helped us contacting our scheduled ride to the airport (arranged with the safari company) that was late to come. Dinner was included, and as with the breakfast was very good. The garden is very pleasant.
Cons: The road to the place is really horrible, worse than the roads during the safari. We thought being closer to the airport would save us time, but it didn't save as much as expected compared to being in Arusha as it takes 10-15min to ride the 1km from the main road. Arriving after dark we didn't believe there is really a hostel at the end until we saw the place.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The staff were a great help when we were trying to locate the property and met us on the road to guide us there. No address was provided in the booking, you see!
Cons: Access road to property was diabolical but this is not their responsibility but that of the local authority
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The setting of Shamba Hostel is really impressive. A classic building in a green garden with several different trees, birds and even bushbabies. There were nice places to sit outside in the sun or shade. Staff is absolutely fantastic. Although we had to leave at 3:30 in the night, there was still breakfast for us, with fresh fruit, boiled eggs and toast. Rooms were impeccably clean, good beds and had plenty of hot water in the shower. Much closer to Kilimanjaro Airport than Arusha. Perfect place to stay.
Cons: The only drawback is the rocky road, but it is only a few kilometers, quiet and not dangerous in any way (except perhaps for your tires).
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We were three on a birdwatching safari in Northern Tanzania. We asked for airport pickup (20$) which was convenient and on time. The location of Shamba is great because it is far from the main road, it is quiet, you can hear only the voice of the animals during the night. The breakfast and the dinner was superb, always fresh and fulfilling. The garden and the area around the hostel is lush and full of birds which we appreciated a lot. And best of all is the hospitality of the hosts. They helped us to organize safaries on a good price to Arusha NP and Tarangire NP. We had a knowledgable guide, Lawrence who had a good experience on the sites and knew the birds too, which is not common among the guides. He drove the Land Cruiser carefully, we always felt safe during our journey. We also had a local guide Gerard in Maji ya Chai who showed us the sites of interest in the close area. We had a great time at Shamba and recommend it, if you like simple budget places with excellent value for money.
Cons: Nothing.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The owners are really nice. The dinner and breakfast amazing. The place is so clean, hot shower. Is close from and to airport. They have also transport to airport for a good price.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Nice and quiet area, close to the airport
Cons: Public transport not close
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Beautiful place, full of open areas with banana trees and lots of vegetation. The staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms are very clean. The breakfast and dinner are included in the price of the rooms, with delicious food. The surroundings of the Shamba are great for a sunset walk and see the kilimanjaro mountain raising up over the horizon.
Cons: Everything was perfect!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Everything! We loved it! You're between Airport and Arusha. You can go around and walk at Usa or go to Arusha. The location is great! They have a lot of space around with some bananatrees or little lodges where you can sit and relax. It's like paradise :) Mtimama is a great guy and very welcoming. Beatrice was very kind and took good care of our meals, soooo goood!The mini-buffets were amazing. Both Mtimama and Beatrice were so nice and considerate and caring of our wellbeing :) We had very interesting talks and could get to know a bit more about their cultures, which we enjoyed. The staff is really nice and they would do everything for a good customer. Like night-bushbaby-safarii or owl-birdwatching
Cons: If there is anything to complain (because there is ABSOLUTLY nothing wrong with the hostel) the beds were a bit to hard for what we are used to.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: amazing dinner and breakfast included in the price. very nice staff. the garden around is really big and beautiful.
Cons: if you wanna go anywhere you need a car or taxi - but thats the only "negative"

Okay 5.4
Pros: Great service, specially by the staff at the reception.
Cons: The rooms are old and rather small, the smell is not fresh. The bathroom is slightly disastrous because it is impossible to take a shower without soaking everything wet.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Kia lodge is a beautiful and elegant place. We were very happy about the lodge room and also with all of the common areas. Both bar, pool and restaurant were very nice. Staff is very familiar and service minded. It is a perfect place to stay for one or two nights before you go to or after you come from the airport which is only 5 minutes away and the hotel offers free airport transport.
Cons: The pool could be a bit cleaner. Also it is not the place to stay for a whole vacation since everything except the airport is very far away.
Good 7.5
Pros: Very efficient airport pickup.
Cons: For the cost of the room they should provide drinking water. One 500ml bottle on check-in is crazy. Free fruit juice at breakfast, but if you want water they sell it at crazy inflated prices.
Good 7.9
Pros: Very nice rooms, with a lot of space. We were picked up at the airport and the welcome at the reception was perfect!
Cons: The toilet in our room had trouble flushing. And unfortunately the pool did not seem clean.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: nothing

Excellent 8.3
Pros: Great for the price!
Good 7.1
Pros: The staff was very helpful. Especially, Ole helped us a lot with booking a Safari for a fair price.
Cons: Wifi didn't work even if they really tried to settle it.
Mediocre 2.5
Cons: Very far from the location given on booking. Com Also staff is very rude
Mediocre 3.8
Pros: Nothing really
Cons: We chose this hotel precisely because it showed right on the main road in the map. It's actually quite hidden up in a dirt road far away from the main road. We arrived a little before 9 pm, starving, and there was nothing to eat (restaurant closed) and as it was far and in a dodgy, empty and dark dirt street we didn't go out. Wifi was bad, and room not clean. No credit card payment.
Good 7.1
Pros: The staff were very nice.
Cons: The web site on booking.com stated the lodge had air conditioning. However, there was only a fan in the room, no air conditioning.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very nice hotel with a wonderful staff !
Mediocre 3.8
Pros: Proximity to the airport and transfers easily arranged
Cons: Our room was not set up, and had been overpoweringly fumigated with insect repellent (through a few mosquitos remained in the room). We found rodent faeces in the shower and miscellaneous short curly hairs in the bed. The lightbulb flashed with fluorescent lights for 10-15 minutes after we switched it off. There were dogs and cockerels very loudly throughout the night and we were woken from what little sleep we got by the cleaners banging around at 6.20am. Unfortunately this was not compensated for by friendly staff - who seemed hassled by our arrival and presence. For breakfast we were treated to cold cling-filmed French fries, bread and a pre-made cling-filmed egg omelette of some description - that they seemed disappointed that we didn’t eat.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: They were very accommodating to what I needed. Super nice!
Cons: It was a bit far from the airport and I just needed the place to stay the night but it seemed that most hotels were pretty far away from the hotel.
