Very basic rooms, with a fan only but quite nice breakfast. In the night very hot, not easy to sleep, but that's the whole islands clima... The staff is okey but not amazing. The location was quite good. Good for backpackers only, not for comfort or relax.

The rooms are basic, don't expect anything cosy, but they are clean, cheap (very cheap compared to most other accommodations, even most other budget/backpackers options) and have a fan. The breaksfast is included and served on the rooftop terrace.

I was traveling with two friends on a backpacker's budget, so we booked a three beds room, with two shared toilet and shower on the same floor. The room was very basic, with a sink and mosquito nets. The staff was not friendly at all and made us feel like we were disturbing them. One morning we wanted to go...

It is centrally located in the heart of Stone Town and very affordable for Zanzibar. Not a 4 star but, descent and well kept. If you are light sleeper it the morning prayers call will definitely disturb your sleep. I traveled in January of 2015.

Recommended to us by friends, this was a great option for a reasonable priced stay in an expensive location. We had a twin bedroom with en suite bathroom for $ 34 per night. They don't provide towels and although there is a ceiling fan there is no aircon. No hot water but it was so hot at the time of...

It's situated in the twisting alleys of Stone Town and so there are lots of places to explore nearby. It's a cheap option and the rooms are basic but clean. There's a rooftop terrace to chill on which is nice. Darajani is near to the hostel and you can get dalaldalas all over the island from there. If you love...

This place is very basic, but the very best value and experience. The rooms are simple, but super clean. You walk across the floor and your feet are not even dusty. You get a good breakfast on the roof, and free, fast wifi. The staff are friendly and helpful, and they even picked us up for the airport. I will...

“Take double room without bathroom, it is the same price as one bed in the dorm.”

“The rooms are not pretty, but for not much more it is good to get one with a private bathroom. Higher up is a bit quieter.”

“I like the rooms on the rooftop because they have access to free Wi-Fi and they also have a very nice view. The con to this is that the rooms can get very warm during the day due to the sunlight shining on the rooms all day.”
