Who We Are

Run by non-profit organisation The Green Living Planet (GLP), The Greenhouse is a family business run by local Tanzanians. Some of the proceeds from the hostel also help to support GLP's projects, working with people in the local community to improve and preserve the natural environment.


What We Do

We are committed to showcasing what Tanzania has to offer and helping our local community to develop their surrounding environment. We welcome all our guests the opportunity to learn more about GLP's activities through our volunteering programmes. We can also help to arrange day trips and excursions for solo travellers or groups.


What We Offer

We have a number of rooms to choose from at The Greenhouse, from small dorms to large dorms and private rooms with en-suite facilities. We can also host camping guests and provide bicycles for hire as well as offer transfer services to town or the airport.. 


Where We Are

We are located in Sombetini, Arusha in North Tanzania and can be found easily via Google Maps. We are approx. 50 mins from Kilimanjaro Airport by car, 15 mins from Arusha Airport and a 2 hour drive to access the safari circuit.

What our guests say about us

"This hostel has the best hospitality. I was greeted with a warm hug and smile and I was made a home cooked meal the first night me and my friends arrived. Bon apetit! The hostel is very comfortable quiet private and very relaxing. I felt quite at home and would recommend to everyone!"
