Welcome to Karibu Hostel, where all profits go to support the NGO called Born to Learn. We created the hostel so the project can be self-sustainable, we couldn't leave any longer with donations of friends!!
Karibu Hostel is located in a very secure area, only 5min walk from the city center of Moshi, Tanzania.
We offer accommodation to short and long term volunteers and also to sporadic backpackers. We have 2, 4 and 6 mixed bedrooms where you can get to know other people really close and a double room, for those who want more intimacy.
This fully furnished hostel with all facilities will make your stay comfortable. Hot water, mosquito nets, fridge, lockers, volleyball field… You can even watch movies or play some cards in our great living room combined with a spacious terrace, where you can chat with other volunteers for hours while looking at the moon and stars.
We also have a big ecologic veg garden where we get vegetables, and mango, lemon, pear, banana, avocado and papaya trees where we get fruits in season. Txip and Txop are the hens in charge of providing us healthy eggs everyday.
Best of all, is that by staying with us you will be supporting the community of newlands and its kids!!

P.O. Box 2143,
From Moshi Town:
Get to the Arusha roundabout (keep lefti Arusha); tell the driver to head toward Arusha. We are located on the first right hand road after the roundabout opposite a Total Petrol Station and a restaurant called Peace Park. The name of the road is Nsilo Swai Street and we are the first gate on the right. It is a big white house located on the Arusha road but the gate is on Nsilo Swai Street. Look for the small sign on the gate. Please note: If you end up at Chagga Bite, look across the road and you will see the the other end of Nsilo Swai Street as described in the directions above. Come down Nsilo Swai street and we are now the last gate on the left.
Coming from Arusha:
Just before the Arusha roundabout you will see a big green road sign that shows the directions to the International School, Himo and Moshi Town. Immediately before the sign is a dirt road, Nsilo Swai Road. Turn left onto this road and we are the first gate on the right. Again it is a big white house on the Arusha Road but the gate is on Nsilo Swai Street. Again look for the small sign on the gate.
If you have problems, call the local manager, Ailsa at +255754888684.
Kilimanjaro International Airport is approx 30-45 mins from Moshi. We can arrange aiport transfers and the approximate cost would be 55,000 TSH, or 35$.
Close to the Arusha roundabout, across from Peace Park, 15 min walk to town.
Moshi is a great area from which to do safari, climb Kilimanjaro or Mt. Meru. Mt. Kilimanjaro is often in view from the Hostel.
