    What a wonderful place! Right on the beach with hammocks, a great bar, friendly staff and a superb place to meet fellow travellers. I can highly recommend the island snorkelling tours - it is fairly pricey $70 per person but the coral reefs are stunning and the lunch is delicious and plentiful. If you are after travel advice then just speak to the owner. She’s full of knowledge with regard to buses etc but also can put you in touch with other people heading your way for a cheap ride!

    My stay at Baobab was fantastic. I had to choose between the two backpackers in Vilanculos, but decided to book here because the reviews were better and they could organize tours. The food was good and decently priced, the staff very friendly and the atmosphere sociable although it was quite empty. They also have a small pool which was still warm at night. I booked two archipelago tours through the staff and both were amazing experiences, although a little pricey. Dorms are basic but sufficient.

    This is one of the best place to spend time in Vilankulos. The hostel offers a lot of option to discover the area. Also because of lack of bed in dorm they upgraded us to private room. Only problem was the roof was leaking during the rain. Rest of our stay was totally perfect.

    The grounds of this hostel are much nicer than the photos let on. It's an expansive complex with different sized huts, camping areas, a pool, and beach access. The restaurant makes wonderful meals and bar well stocked. It's a relaxing place in the middle of Vilanculos town making it easy to step out for a walk or tuk-tuk ride to other hotels. Totally recommend!

    I have stayed at many backpackers that include breakfast in the price that is the same as this...and Baobab didn't include breakfast. The kitchen was quite dirty, never cleaned. Rooms were nice, nice stealing area for bar/restaurant/hanging out. Right on the beach - walk 50m and be on the beach!

    I really enjoyed my stay at baobab! The common area was cozy and the staff was very helpful! Marina went above and beyond to help me out and figure out a transport to Tofo! Personal lockers would be nice, and the food can take a bit long to arrive but neither of those things are big inconveniences.

    We really enjoyed our time here. All the staff were very helpful. Maria, the lady in charge was especially helpful and really made us welcome. It’s a lovely location on the beach. The only think we’d suggest is that there could be more activities organised on an evening to help you meet others and as some entertainment once it is dark.

    Baobab is fine! I was in the dorm and got eaten alive by mosquitos every night, even with the netting. It was pretty awful. So maybe get a private hut if you can afford it. I was going as cheap as possible so I get what I deserve haha. In a dorm that large, there are definitely not enough fans to go around, especially when others get up during the night and direct the fans only at themselves. Anyway, the main area was nice, Baobab did a good job with the Christmas celebration; it's a chill place
