Certificate of Excellence
At Hostel Hoff we focus on independent volunteering within and on the outskirts of Moshi, Tanzania. Hostel Hoff started very small, back in 2006 with the hope of helping volunteers side step international profit orientated "organisations". It is our belief that you should not have to pay to volunteer, therefore prices cover your accommodation and the volunteering experience is free. The projects we work alongside include nursery & primary schools, vocational training centres, orphanages, centres for children with disabilities, medical centres, women's groups, community development & conservation projects, and many more.
