Good location and some of the rooms are rather nice for budget, but there's no staff around and no one who tells you about breakfast and other stuff. There's two parts of the place, with different restaurants for breakfast, and nobody tells you which one to go to. No wifi. Broken and dirty showers and restrooms in the most low... More

Stayed here for two nights during low season. The rooms are basic and clean with own toilet and hot showers. Located right on the beach and is reasonably priced. This is a perfect place for backpackers, for others looking for European hotel standards look somewhere els. I'm super happy having a room with own toilet, mosquito net without wholes and... More

We stayed for three nights here, and we would not pay for breakfast ("supermarket" only 150 m away) so we arranged 40.000 per night (low season-price). The beach with resturants are only a few seconds walk away, very close! The rooms have mosquito nets and clean sheets. Not so clean towels. They have laundry service. TIP : Behind the building...

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved being so close to the beach. The location was really great, but the rooms were very basic and not particularly clean. We didn't spend much time in our room so this didn't bother us too much. We found it quite difficult to work out who was actually working at Jambo Brothers as... More

I stayed here back in 2012 and came here again in 2015 with my girlfriend. It's a very good option for someone who wants to stay somewhere cheap but also wants to be close to the beach (20 meters away). The rooms are relatively clean, however the bathroom had some mold and the wall had some dirt stains. I'd recommend... More

This hostel is actually quite gross, but the location really makes up for it. You literally wake up on the most beautiful beach of Zanzibar. Pros: Location Breakfast Cons: Rooms Toilets No hot water (not really necessary) No wifi Overall, it's still fairly cheap for a bed. Not terrible for a night or two.

Dirty toilets. The mattresses are brown with filth. Avoid at all costs. Worst hotel ever. Anywhere but Jambo Brothers! What a beautiful location, the staff should be ashamed of themselves. We asked for the room to be cleaned, never happened, never will! Previous guests turds still in the toilet, mine are there now.

“A warning to those visiting the area, you will be approached by many locals offering you excursions such as snorkelling, sunset cruise etc. Be very careful as there are a lot of middlemen and you might not get what you pay for. For example, we sadly discovered we had paid for snorkelling from a middleman of a middleman dealing with another middleman who thought we were paying for a sunset cruise.”

“I'd go elsewhere, but if you stay, the separate bungalows farther from the reception area are more shielded from the public beach, so a bit more private.”
