The Hostel is not far away from the harbor, so when there is a containership, they offload it during the night, that is realy loud!!!

I actually stayed there a few times when I was traveling around Zanzibar and passing through Stone Town. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location isn't quite in the middle of things but it's only about a two minute walk from the Djani Market and 5-10 minutes to the museums, shops, etc on the other side of Stone Town. The dalla-dalla station is at the Djani Market. Please don't order the brownie! Unless you want to plan on order it again and again. It's amazing.

Very good place to stay, with friendly staff, comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Only slight criticism is that its a bit on the pricey side.


This was a great hotel. Good location, clean comfy rooms, good restaurant. Staff was so helpful and I loved the spiced soap!


Nice hotel with good facilities and atmosphere. Especially the staff is very helpful. The bathroom could use an update, but it will do for now. The rest of the room was perfect.
