Kampala Backpackers in Kampala

Set on 3 acres they have a wide range of accommodation and a great bar with chill out rooms, pool room and large verandah where you can sit and read a book or chat with your friends. They have free wireless internet with good download speed so anyone with a laptop can log on plus a free internet cafe.

Red Chili Hideaway, in Bugolobi,
clean and safe camping, dormitory or cottage accommodation. A major backpacker hangout. They’ve got a nice garden, hangout space, free internet, and generally, it’s a good place to get information from other travellers.
Selam Restaurant & Lodge in Kansanga (Ggaba Rd).
This is a local guesthouse adherent to an Eritrean/Ethiopian restaurant. Coming from Kabalagala it’s 150m behind Kampala International University on the left side, quite a convenient location. However, it’s a real budget option and may not be for the picky. No-frills but clean rooms with mosquito nets, the toilets are local style (squatting) and sometimes not the cleanest, cold shared showers only. The restaurant is excellent and very good value and staff and owners are very nice, too. At night the neighbouring clubs are loud, especially on weekends.
Hotel City Square, Plot 42 Kampala Road (On Constitution Square),
Newly renovated, pleasant and safe hotel with extremely helpful staff and the best location in Kampala overlooking the green gardens of Constitution Square. The staff are helpful, the rooms are clean with running hot water. A great restaurant on the first floor overlooking the square with comfort food (burgers etc) as well as great local dishes ‘matooke’ and fresh fish. Many rooms overlook the main road with thin windows, however, so be prepared for noise.
