The location was perfect for walking around Stonetown and the breakfast was AMAZING. Having breakfast on the rooftop terrace (with wifi) was a great experience. We only stayed one night as we were going to Paje the next day. The only difficulty we had was at check in. The car we arranged with them never showed up and the check in process was long (and painful) for being 1 am. But otherwise, great place to stay in Zanzibar.

Helpful staff, good facilities. The room is a little bit small.

The staff are very friendly and are able to organise trips around Zanzibar for a reasonable price. If you go as a group the price is cheaper. The rooftop area is a good place to relax with a few beers and meet other guests. My room was very comfortable with a big four poster bed and mosquito net. The only real drawback is the location of the hostel, it is only 15 minutes walk from the main part of Stonetown but you have to walk through a very busy area by the port surrounded by fast cars.

I really enjoyed the staff but felt there was lack of proper food handling for breakfast. I feel they should use only filtered or bottled water for cleaning fruits and tea and coffee.
