It is one of the best hostels at Jamibiani and I really could recommend this place, buld it would be good if the staff at the restaurant would be more friendly and if the breakfast offers changes from time to time.

Idyllic location right on beachfront. Jambiani is the gem of Zanzibar. Good breakfast and decent restaurant (advanced bookings essential).
Really beautiful location with rooms on beach-front. Good breakfast included plus decent roof-top restaurant offering same variety of meals as at all others in locality for fair price (but must order ahead). Very relaxed atmosphere and plenty opportunities to mingle with locals.
Great location though everything except the rooms is quite highly rated. But you can find anything you need if you just leave the bungalow area... Sums up to be a good place though.
Nice big rooms with mostly sea views and sandy relaxing areas. Restaurant can take 2 hours to prepare dinner and chef is pretty stingy with (mediocre) breakfast rations. Good value for this stretch of beach though.
A fantastic location on the beach. Zanzibar has currently had no electricity supply for over a month and although other guest houses/hotels have made some effort to use a generator Shehe are VERY reluctant to use their's. This leaves you will very little water and no electricity most of the time.
Jambiani village is beautiful. Ten steps from the bungalows to the turqoise water and the white beach. Good service, friendly people. A place to visit before you die.
