I'm staying in Arusha for a month as a guide. Since I'm a driver, I needed an inexpensive place to stay. I wasn't sure what to expect for $15 a night, but I love ABA Safari and Accommodation hotel!
ABA is a good option for budget travellers. Alfred, the manager, and the staff are very helpful in whatever you need and can help you organize individual trips and Safaris according to your budget.
The rooftop view is beautiful and the bar being planned there will make the place even more attractive.
We stayed there several times whenever passing through Arusha and can warmly recommend this good value option. Don't confuse ABA Safari & Accomodation with ABA Guesthouse!
At $15 its fantastic value with an excellent breakfast.
The area is much calmer than where some of the other budget options are located.
And has its own big diesel generator for all
the Arusha powercuts to keep the free internet going, did I mention the
satalite TV, I would stay here every time and wish them all the best.
