I only stayed at the Red Chili for one night because I was joining them for an organized tour to Murchinsons Falls very early next morning. It was a great place, and definately a place I would hang out if I wanted to get in touch with people and find some mates to hang out with. The Red Chili is a combination of hostel and camping, which also organizes great trips to different locations in Uganda. I stayed in a dorm – and the dorms where huge with alot of beds, so wave goodbye to any privacy at all. The rooms and beds are clean though, with good mosquito nets. They also have private rooms and camping. What I liked about the Red Chili was the green areas around the buildings, the relaxed atmosphere and the nice hang-øut areas where you easily meet other people. A recommanded place for sleeping, socializing and organized trips! For more info, visit their homepage.
