Ujamaa Hostel

Ujamaa Hostel was created for volunteers and travellers to provide the best quality low-cost accommodation and volunteer experiences in Arusha, Tanzania. It's fun, friendly, safe and affordable - so why not stay with us and you can meet like-minded people, check out the Tanzanian culture and spend time volunteering in the local community. 


The hostel consists of the following rooms:

Two private rooms with a double bed (shared bathroom)


1 - 30 nights

Dorm Bed: US$18 or 27,000Tsh per person per night

Private Room: US$40 or 60,000Tsh per room per night


Any nights stayed after the initial 30 nights

Dorm Bed: US$16 or 24,000Tsh per person per night

Private Room: US$37 or 55,000Tsh per room per night

We know what an incredible experience it is to volunteer at a grassroots level and to be able to have a direct effect on a community. We also believe that if you are willing to volunteer your time, energy and expertise to an organisation in need, you shouldn't have to pay for it. So we have created a volunteer program with a range of local organisations whereby you can volunteer for free while having the peace of mind that you are giving your time to a worthwhile and reputable organisation.
