"Nyumbani" in Swahili, one of the official languages in Tanzania, means "at home".
For more than two years, from April 2015 till September 2017 we shared our home with you. In March 2018 our first child was born. Due to that fact we are not longer able to host guests, tourists and traveller in our personal home so we moved the hostel to another place. Nevertheless we kept the name because we still want to give you a home far away from home and the spirit of "Nyumbani" stays the same. At the hostel you can hang around with like-minded people and other globetrotters, chill out on one of sunbeds or enjoy a beer on the balcony.
We warmly welcome you, if you want to share your time with us during your trip, be it either for a couple of days or months.
You'll always have a home at Nyumbani!
