Property Description

Trying to find 'clean & safe' accommodation near the beach in Zanzibar to bundled up nicely and comfortable tend to cost just that, a bundle of cash. And if on top of that you want it budget, well good luck. In Zanzibar that is as rare as unicorn poo. Unless you fancy sleeping in exactly the type of place where every scary movie is filmed – isolated, dirty, unsafe, dim, flickering lights and strange noises.

Drifters Backpackers, run by travelers for travelers, offers the most secure and clean refuge to travelers, kite surfers and scuba divers on the whole island. Around our well-shaded courtyard you'll find the restaurant/bar/rooms, which can be paid either by cash or bank card. Wifi available throughout the hostel.

All of our dorms are self-contained (shower + toilet), have tiled-floors, and are cleaned and sprayed daily. All of our beds come with brand-new mattresses, mosquito nets, and linen. Also, each bed has a personal fan to fight that humid heat thats always creeping through the window.

We have an unbeatable location right in the heart of Paje Beach, which is, hands down the most relaxed, youthful and water sport-oriented beach in Zanzibar. We share our access to the beach, SEA-VIEW SWIMMING POOL, parking lot, security, power generator, cleaners and even our chef with our friends from our sister company Arabian Nights Resort next door.

We are less than 3 minute walk to bars, restaurants, kite centers, dive centers, shops, and public transport. Unlike most other destinations on the island that are in-between nowhere and no place. Which in the end translates to money & time, as you need a taxi to get to the nearest restaurant/bar.

We are proud to say we've been awarded 2017 best hostel in the whole of Tanzania by Hostelworld!!

Latest Review

" Drifters was a great backpacker hostel pretty much directly on Paje beach. Communication with David, the manager, was very good and he made me feel very comfortable after arriving. It is a very relaxed atmosphere at the hostel - a place you can feel at home at very quickly. It is important to know that most of the rooms are facing the bar / outdoor common area and for those who like to sleep early, it can be a bit loud (till 11pm). For those looking to meet great new people, this is the place. "
