The Friendly Gecko Guesthouse is a socially responsible hostel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We aim to offer convenient and safe accommodation for a reasonable price. With making financial contributions and cost sharing arrangements we support the charity organization help2kids.
Since we accommodate up to 16 volunteers from help2kids, we consider ourselves to be more of a home than a hostel. We love to meet new people and travelers from all walks of life and share our daily experiences.
Stay at the Friendly Gecko and explore Dar es Salaam while contributing to the education and care of vulnerable children in Tanzania.
“If you want to stay in Dar a couple of days and connect with an interesting project, consider checking into Friendly Gecko Guesthouse, 20km north of the city centre off New Bagamoyo Rd. The guesthouse has a mixture of simple rooms in a large, private house with a garden and kitchen, and all profits go to support affiliated community programs.”
