Not the best place in the world, but can't really expect much when you pay soo little. Our room had window panes missing and in the hot Zanzibar heat it didn't make any difference - neither did the pathetic small ceiling fan. We were on the top floor and the stairs were virtually vertical making it very difficult to climb with a packed out backpack. The location was pretty central, you can walk to the ferry port within 10mins.
