After building our new outside terrace, a really nice place to relax, enjoy the view and taste our meals, we think it is time for a new name. From St. Eugene’s Hostel to St. Lodge. A little up-grade what we deserve, for this beautiful place. St. Eugene's Lodge has comfortable, modern and spotless rooms with bathrooms and perfect hot showers.
All rooms have balconies with views over banana fields and the Usambara hills. "It is by far the best accommodation close to town" according to Lonely Planet. It is run by an order of Tanzanian sisters and all proceeds help their English-medium primary school and the Montessori kindergarten for local children. Tasty meals are available from Tsh. 8,000. High quality home-made cheese, local jam and banana wine are sold by the sisters.
