    I stayed here with a friend for a few nights, and ended up going back about a week later as we had longer in Zanzibar. We had so much fun here and met loads of amazing people, as breakfast is around a big table and sometimes dinner is made for the guests so it’s very communal. The owner is so nice and helpful and we’re so grateful for our time here!! We ended up getting a private room for the same price as the dorm which was so nice

    Stayed at Homeland Swahili lodge twice. First for New years eve, where Crazy Man and Laura went above and beyond to cater for everyone. The second I had a longer stay in Nungwi, if you're looking to meet people and feel like part of a family then Homeland Swahili Lodge is the place to stay. They also have great peanut butter.

    Loud, boisterous and a bit politically incorrect, Crazy Man (the owner of the hostel) may not be everyone’s cup-of-tea at first. However, he is an absolutely amazing host, going the extra mile to ensure his guests’ happiness. From driving us to the beach to organizing a snorkeling trip to Mnemba island and going out at night to buy drinks for us, Crazy Man is a excellent host. The facilities are great, but the WiFi isn’t reliable. Overall, a great experience!
