Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed 3 nights in the hostel and eat the tasting big free breakfast and test the delicious dinner buffet, too. The clean rooms are big with 3 beds inside. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. You also can sit outside on the...terrace of the room and enjoy the nice view. Or you can sit in front from the community room an enjoy the free afternoon buffet. The „center“ you can reach by walk in 25 minutes or take a motorbike or taxi for small money. Sabine does everything for you at any time. She booked a guide for daytrip, it was amazing, and she bought the bus ticket and said "Good bye!" in the early morning. She does not took money for herself for this sevices. That let it feel very familiar. Thank you very much for everything.More

This is my go-to place in Lushoto. It is secure, clean, comfortable, friendly, with the best food. A pleasant walk (or a 5000/- taxi ride) going just outside of town will find you in a peaceful place with mountain views. Not to be missed.

Thanks much for your review. Yes, that is true. We decided to concentrate on a mixture of African and European food, also suitable for Vegetarians. So we are sorry, that we can`t serve your expectations, but I believe you will find other places, which are...More

After visiting the ocean, on our way to Arusha, we decided to stay one night in Lushoto and enjoy the mountain nature and air. Our room was incredible clean with big bed to enjoy sleeping. The toilet was the best: lots of towels, hot water,...toothbrush, toothpaste, soap. PERFECT!!! The view from the room is magnificent, nature all over the place, and everything smells so perfect African. :-) There are a lot of things for breakfast, you can choose whatever do you want, all you can eat. :-) Coffee, milk, tea. Enjoy life and love yourself while you are enjoying all of this nature around you.More

You cannot miss this! My friend and I had the pleasure of dining here. For 12,000 shillings there was an incredible spread of savoury dishes in a local style with some western touches here and there. Some salads and fruit made for a very complete...meal. This possibly had the largest salad dressing range and hot drinks table I have seen in my life. The german lady hosting this is lovely and she gave us privacy initially but was happy to share with us about her interesting expat life.More

We were passing so poped in for a tea and short rest. Good service and prices. The staff had some good suggestions for the rest of our trip

This was the best value meal we have had in the past 3 months of travelling and working in Tanzania and by far the best place to eat in lushoto. It is at the edge of town about 20 to 30 minutes walk or a...cheap taxi ride from the centre but definitely worth it . However you have to book in advance and cannot just arrive. It is a resthouse but they cater for outside customers also. Sabine the German owner communicated easily with us by email and face book and we just gave her half a days notice. You are served an all you can eat buffet with delicious fish, salads and some wonderful African food. A huge variety of herbal teas and some delicious fruit for dessert are served. All for around 10,000 TsH. Don't expect a fancy decor but if you want good food and friendly service this is the placeMore
