My Ethiopian friends were shocked when they saw this place - I wasn't quite sure, if it was the place, location or the fact that two women were sharing the same double bed, but the atmosphere were nice and the place was very photogenic.

About
Description
Established in 1963, Atelefunge is simply ANTIQUE and AFFORDABLE!! Atelefugne is composed of a local bar, a traditional restaurant and 23 rooms. Most of the rooms SHARE a bath and a handful rooms with en-suites. More Atelefugne is a WORK-IN-PROGRESS and we are constantly making improvements on the 50 plus years property. Atelefugne is not a four star, it's not a three star, it's not even a zero star but a well-liked, LOCAL, budget hostel. It's not FANCY and it's located in an INDUSTRIAL surroundings, in Kera, Bulgaria area. Distance from the airport is about 7 kms. Distance from the African Union Headquarters is 1 km. Atelefugne has a traditional restaurant (NO HAMBURGER or PIZZA) that proudly serves mouth-watering meals. The most popular is the spicy Yebeg wot (lamb stew) among many meat dishes and Beyayenetu (veggie combo) on Orthodox fasting days (which are Wednesdays and Fridays). Tegabino (pureed cheakpeas) is excellent and always available. All meals are served with Ethiopian flat bread, injera, unique to Ethiopia. Atelefugne has at its centre, a casual but friendly bar where many local beers are served - the most popular being Habesha, followed by Walya. But there is also Harar, Bedele and Meta. Also served are local wines, variety of local gins as well as many of your favorite soft drinks. Free wi-fi is available in the bar, terrace and rooms. Atelefugne has clean rooms with a full bed in smaller rooms and queen-sized bed in the larger ones. Rooms are decorated with traditional bedcovers, curtains, and local paintings. The original wooden floors and interesting wooden chairs and cabinets make the space warm and comfortable. Atelefugne provides toiletries. Please note: ATELEFUGNE DOES NOT PROVIDE TWO BEDS OR EXTRA BEDS FOR CHILDREN. Cleanup is upon request. Atelefugne does not provide airport pickup but can arrange a taxi. Airport taxis are also readily available. Please be aware that although the owner and some of the staff are fluent English speakers, a little patience with those that only speak Amharic would be greatly appreciated.Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to be of service. Less
