The staff was great, extremely helpful at all times of the day/night. The dorm on the bottom floor had a window without the glass or shutter at the very top, which made it really cold in the room. Also, the smell of cigarettes would sometimes come into the room because of that window. Someone please fix this! Otherwise, I had a great stay here.
I don't have any complaints about this place, because I had an awesome stay here. The dorm that I stayed in was huge with great views of the ocean and it had huge lockers for my stuff. I could have fit my hiking backpack in there!
The town, the hostel, and the awesome views make this a place worth visiting. The staff are very helpful/friendly, the place was clean and had a very homey feel to it, which I enjoyed especially since I felt like I had been constantly traveling.
Staff was very friendly and helpful; they never seemed annoyed. Very clean, great atmosphere, lively bunch of people, and the beach is a short walk from the hostel. Cottage like dorm felt like my own apartment with a kitchen and a living room. Great stay.
This is definitely a party place. Don't expect to go to sleep until late unless you're bone dead tired. Watch out for some of the animals--covered with fleas. The beach is really close and the scenery is beautiful.
I did not like the fact that they paired me up with a male roommate. It made me feel really uncomfortable. Also, the rooms need a locker instead of having to go downstairs to reception. Got some stuff stolen because of that. otherwise, this place was clean, spacious, and the dorm room that I was in did not have bunks!
It wasn't too far from the city centre, and the hostel was right near the beach. The beds were so comfortable, definitely not a thin flimsy mattress here. The hostel had a pretty great spread for breakfast. The place was clean on the outside and the inside. I would definitely come here again.
There wasn't a sign at the old Zanzibar lodge, which made me feel a little apprehensive about the place at first. However, Ali and the owner's customer service and care made me feel extrememly comfortable in Stonetown. In fact, we enjoyed our stay so much that we came back to stay with them after spending some time on the beach. Ali took us around Stonetown, showed us where to eat, and was overall very helpful. I would love to come back and stay with them at their new place!

Jollyboys doesn't have mosquito nets unless you're in a private room. Watch out for the mosquitos.
