The hospitality at this guest house was phenomenal! The guesthouse has a keen understanding of western expectations, and provided the most spacious and well functioning accommodations we had in Ethiopia.

I stayed here as a last resort and that was a great decision. I was a bit worried about the place because I had never heard of it and didnt have time to do the trip advisor run. The rooms we had were very well kept, very clean and the bathrooms were also very well maintained. The only snag is...

The staff members are warm and extremely considerate/helpful/all-around wonderful human beings. Just being in their presence you'll have to fight the urge to hug them.
