The Space

Come and stay in the Xavier Project Guesthouse in Kampala! Our guesthouse is situated in Nsambya not far from St Peter's Cathedral and it offers a peaceful and functional base for anyone visiting Kampala. We have recently rennovated the property meaning that it is now very welcoming, with a cool air of sophistication. It boasts mod-cons such as hot water and a bathtub for guests - a luxury hard to find in this area.

Included in the price enjoy three meals a day based on a traditional Ugandan menu (specific tastes and requirements can be catered for on request) and other facilities such as clothes washing.

The guesthouse is designed to cater for travellers who are passing through as well as volunteers or guests who would like to stay for many months. A monthly rate is available on request.

At the Xavier Project guesthouse we are very conscious of security which is why every room can be independently locked and is equipped with a secure safe. The guesthouse is within a secure compound which is not far from the main road to Makinde.

Our office is a five minute walk away and we have high speed wifi there that you can use for free.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The hosts were warm and friendly. The price was very reasonable and the guest house was always kept clean. Located not far from the places where I wanted to go and could easily be reached. I recommend this guest house.

  • Situated just on the outskirts of central Kampala, this cozy little guesthouse is a great simple place to stay out of the chaos of the city but within easy reach by public transportation, with all your basic needs available just around the corner. The house manager and maid are very welcoming and keep the place clean and tidy! And Edmund was very helpful arranging my booking and airport transfer. All around, I'd definitely recommend staying here!

    I'll definitely be back in the future!

  • I had a wonderful stay at this guesthouse, staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was incredible, even managed some fried eggs on request! the compound felt very safe and was spotlessly clean, I would definitely recommend staying here!

    August 2012
  • A group of 3 friends and I stayed here for a week and it was one of the best experiences we had while we were in Uganda. Edgar, the guy who lives at the house, is one of the best hosts we could have asked for. He took us around the city, showed us things we wouldn't have otherwise seen, and is just a great person in general. The accommodations are wonderful and the area of the city is not bad at all. Multiple nights we went out and had no problems at all. There is a bar right across the street that is very nice and a great time. The Xavier Project really needs your help to continue their work in Kampala and by staying here you can really help them. They are making great changes in peoples lives and can one day help many many others.

  • The Xavier Project guesthouse was very welcoming. The manager, Edgar, was a really nice guy and gave us lots of great suggestions about exploring Kampala. It was really easy to get around and we felt safe coming back to this guesthouse even quite late in the evening. Above all this guesthouse is clean and has a feel of being new and fresh.

  • Edgar and Maddie are great hosts! A very welcoming atmosphere. Clean and not far from downtown.

    June 2013
  • I have had a wonderful stay at the guesthouse. It is very clean and close to the center of Kampala. Edgar and Madrine are very warm and welcoming people. They made me feel like I was home. I would definetly come again and recommend it to others!

  • I came in late in the evening and I and my African friends did not know the neighborhood so I was a little apprehensive at first. But after meeting the staff and wandering the local I had a great time. I would visit again. Near American Embassy and nice St Peters Cathedral at top of hill makes a nice walk. There are three rooms at this local that share a shower/bathroom, but I was clean and available whenever I wanted it. They support a good cause too.

  • Loved the (website hidden) Kampala. If you are looking for a luxurious apt., this is not the place for you. What I can say though is for budget travelers you will not find a better deal. It is clean. Madrina, the cook/housekeeper does an excellent job. We were able to tell her our food preferences and she took great care of us. I would describe this place as an apt. with shared living space. Each bedroom has a key and it is very secure. There were no other travelers with us. The compound felt perfectly safe and was in an excellent part of town. You will not find a better deal and that fact that meals are included makes this my new number one spot. I will be recommending this to an online (website hidden) group of people who frequent Uganda. Like I said, if you need the Hilton, this is not for you. But if you like clean, affordable and friendly this is a perfect spot!!

I am a teacher by profession currently living in Nairobi working for a project I founded called the Xavier Project. We provide education, employment and media opportunities for refugees, primarily from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I love Nairobi and enjoy many different aspects of it from the simmering technology revolution to the traditional customs and the simple way of life found in my surrounding neighbourhood. As a result I have a diverse selection of friends here who I can introduce you to and who can give you the full Nairobi story. I also spend a lot of time in Kampala where my other listings are located. I have been coming to Uganda regularly for the last four years and in that time I ticked a lot of the tourism boxes so I can offer advice on the many opportunities Uganda has to offer. In particular I have developed a walking tour route around Kampala, which has more gems than people give it credit for. If I'm feeling energetic I can take you myself or give you a bespoke map! Included in the itinerary are Kabaka's Palace and Lake, Rubage Cathedral, the minaret at Gaddafi's Mosque (top of - great views), Owino market, the craft shop complex, and Uganda Parliament, wrapping up with a drink in Boda Boda bar overlooking the Golf Course. A very nice afternoon adventure.
