The space

Are you looking for a cheap and safe place to live with a homey atmosphere? Then The White House is the place for you! Whether you’re travelling alone, in a group or with your special someone, we can provide you with rooms that will fit your situation. We can offer you both single rooms, shared rooms with bunk beds and couples room with a double bed. The rooms are big, and also contain closets or shelves for you to put your clothes on. The toilet facilities in The White House are of European standard, and the showers and toilets are only a few seconds of walk from every room. If you stay with us you will be provided with three meals every day cooked by our excellent local chef, who both cooks local Tanzanian food and European food – we’re trying not to brag about our chef, but he is amazing! Also, if you have any special circumstances regarding food such as allergies or intolerances, just let us know and we will solve that.The White House is located in Arusha, only 15 minutes walk from Clock tower, where you will find cafes, small shops and more than one bank, where money can be withdrawn all hours of the day. Arusha is a safe area, but of course The White House has strong security so you will be safe during your stay. Does this sound like something you would be interested in for 18 & 20USD per nights? If so, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions – we will try out best to fulfill your wishes. We can also help to arrange safaris, hikes, and day tours. Safaris can range from 1 to 7 days. We go to Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Manyara National Park. As for hiking, we can arrange multi-day hikes to Mount Kilimanjaro or day hikes to Mount Meru and to a waterfall or to Songata Waterfalls. If you don't feel like hiking, we can arrange a day tour to the Chemka hot springs or Marangu Waterfalls and to a local coffee plantation. Please message us for more details.

Life is always expensive, but not in Tanzania and especially not in The White House! Karibu Arusha!

The White House ticks all the boxes for anyone looking to optimise their time in Arusha. It is a perfect base to organise and plan upcoming safaris, hikes etc and is in a great location to explore the town. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Junior, Johnson and Catherine who could not have been more kind and helpfull. Through the White House I managed to book an amazing safari and met some incredible people. Travelling to Arusha on a budget? This is the place to stay.

Junior immediately welcomed us when we arrived. The White House was conveniently located a short walk from the Arusha Clock Tower and the Maasai market. The food was delicious and everyone there was friendly and welcoming.

I loved the White House. Staying here was a real "Tanzanian" experience in a typical neighborhood of Arusha. All the family members work here and are extremely nice. Is less than 5 min ride by taxi or boda boda (motorcycle) from the Clock Tower and all the meals are included, great deal!!

I had a wonderful time at White House! Johnson and his mom were fantastic hosts and I felt a part of their family. Johnson was helpful with directions and coordinating cabs to and from the airport. The house is about a 20-minute walk (or a 5-minute moto ride) from the center of town, but I found the walk to be beautiful during the day time. The rooms were very clean as well. I wish could have stayed longer to do one of the hiking/hot spring trips Johnson talked about (make sure you ask him about it)!

My husband and I had a great stay at Junior's. The room was clean and I liked the location, which is a short walk out of town and very interesting to see how people are living. The meals were good and Junior was always happy to answer my questions.
