We arrived to the airport in Gonder and Gonder Backpackers sent a ride to pick us up and take us to the hostel. The place was really clean and there were several amenities waiting for us. We would recommend this place for anyone looking for a hostel type place to stay while in Gonder. The view of the city from here is also really nice!
Wonderful place I stayed many days. Up a small hill with great view espacially for the sunrise, it's only 6min. walking to the city center. Super clean, comfortable beds. Mesele, the owner, give a lot of informations and can organize tours/trek. I did a perfect one day trip at Siemen Mountains, Book there travelers ! Helene, Canada
I really enjoyed my one night stay here. Friendly staff plus they had clean rooms and bathrooms. There was a kitchen and they can provide you some food and drinks for a small fee. It’s a little far walk to the main areas of the town but you can use a tuk tuk to get there. I definitely recommend to come here to stay if you’re looking for a hostel like place.
I stayed here for a few nights. Unfortunately for me, as they were redoing the road, the cable for the internet got cut, so there was no internet at this hostel for my entire stay. This was not really a problem as it's nice to be disconnected for a few days. To be noted is that this place is not central. It's near Maraki which is not in the centre of town. As a solo woman, it made coming back in the evening a problem. The shortcut that you can take during the day is guarded by dogs when it's dark and so you have to take a tuktuk to get to the hostel. Still, I booked a private room and was very happy with it. The hostel is very clean, staff is super friendly and helpful if you need anything and have good recommendations. The view from the hostel is also fabulous. They have a kitchen there and sell a few items if you want to cook (i didn't but it is available). I recommend this place.…
We’ve had such a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The beds are comfy, the people are great. And Mesele is very helpful and helped us sort out tours for good prices. Met some great people, and there’s lots of travellers and a very social atmosphere. Kitchen facilities to cook your own food and restaurants nearby! There is a wonderful view where you can watch the sunset and a fridge with beers and waters! Everything we needed. Thank you! Bobbie & Stu
