The hotel was basic enough, beds were comfortable and showers hot. Food in the hotel was extremly over priced and pretty tasteless. The food in the blue heron up the road was delicious and much cheaper. Close to markets.

We went to Pamoja upon arriving late in Arusha one night. We were tired and beat up from traveling, barely still speaking to each other! The staff immediately made us comfortable and took excellent care of us. The rooms we stayed in (we stayed there twice, in three different rooms) were all basic but very comfortable and clean with giant...

TV was missing from the room. Grounds are really run down and not well cared for. Owner is very pleasant however. I cannot comment on...

Stayed here both before and after the safari we had in serengeti, lake manyara and ngorongoro. Had a decent stay. Good for a pit stop. Basic rooms whit fan and an old mosquito net (broken). Walking distance to town, 20 minutes. 10 $ for taxi one way. Really nice and kind hotel staff, always welcoming. It's the staff that makes...

After another hotel was fully booked, the receptionist sends us here. After negotiating, the price was set. Although, still rather high. The owner was very nice and helpt us arrange taxi and bustickets. The hotel has a swimming pool, with a little 'milkey' water, but OK. The restaurant has nothing special but is fine. Rooms are big but very dark,...

Our group stayed at Pamoja Expedition Lodge several times during our 3 week trip to Tanzania and could not have been more impressed by the quality of service we received. The hotel is quiet, well kept, and very close to the center of Arusha. The general manager, George, treated us with such attentiveness and care that we didn't want to...

We stayed at two different places; at the Outpost lodge and the Pamoja Expedition lodge. Both were around the same price, but the Pamoja lodge was much better. The majority of tourists in Arusha are there for Safari's or Kilimanjaro, and both of those activities involves many days without access to showers. Pamoja was the only hostel we stayed in...

3 friends and myself recently stayed in Pamoja several different times during our 3 week stay in Tanzania. The hotel is clean, quiet, and perfect for recovering after hiking Kilimanjaro or traveling on safari. The manager, George, is incredibly helpful and treated us like family during our stay (he would drive us places, pick us up, help organize anything we...

I spent 4 nights here in between safaris and hiking Kilimanjaro. I was also traveling alone through Tanzania and Boniface, the owner, invited me out to a Tanzanian wedding and on a separate occasion invited me for a traditional African barbecue. I've got to say his personableness made my stay quite unique and was a highlight of my stay in...

Stayed here for a night in May 2014. For the price it was not worth it; there are several places with a similar price around. ~$30 per person would recommend outpost lodge across the street at the same price. There was no atmosphere at the lodge. The electricity was out when we arrived and they did not put their generator...
