We stayed one night in this hostel. The breakfast was surprisingly good! Unfortunately did we have a room on ground floor (private two beds, shared bathroom, no. 15). This room smelled of fungus (although we did not see any) and we had not access to WiFi. So if possible, you should try to get a room in the first or second floor. Anyway, for a few days our room would be also manageable, but I hope they will get rid of the fungus soon.
Great little guesthouse. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast and clean rooms. Well worth a visit.
This hostel has good value for a money and location is good cause it is quiet neigborhood. Stuff is very helpfull, and can organise prety much everything in the town. Some of a reviews we've red said that there is a fish smell from a market but that is not true. Breakfast is fantastic, and homemade passion juice is something we will talk about for a long time
A terrific value for Stone Town, and still has the Zanzibari feel. It is a great location for arriving or departing with ferry. Stone Town is easily walkable, so even though Princess Salme is a bit out of the centre of attractions, it is still easy to get around. The fun part of Stone Town is walking around anyway. Stay was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was plentiful,and rooms full of character. Considering you are right by the chaotic port, it feels calm and peaceful in the hotel.
This is one of the best place that I have stayed in. The staff is amazing, the tours they booked for me were great and at a very good price, and the hostel itself is very good, with mosquito net, good bed, hot water and toiletries. I totally recommend this place.-
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.
