    Standard of quality of a big european city hostel, in a very gifted location in Stone Town. Have tried a few other places while in Zanzibar and can tell for sure this has the best value for money and is also the best one to meet other travellers as well.

    Loved this Hostel. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful. It was clean and nice to have your own little bed with curtains to feel like a private space. Also, a great location in stone town. You can walk across the street to a fun bar or head down to the water in minutes.

    Really loved this place. If I stay in Stone Town again, I will definitely stay here. The staff is very helpful and will help you book everything you need (tours, taxis). They have great recommendations and everything for a good price. You have lockers and they will provide you a key. They seems to clean everything frequently. Only semi-issue was there wasn't always toilet paper. I also didn't always ask as I'm sure they would provide it. But it was just a tiny inconvenience looking for it.

    Really liked this Hostel - Lost & Found! Even came back to it on my travels back. One of my favorite hostels throughout my backpacking trip in Africa. Clean overall and shower/toilets ok. Like the drapes for each cubby/bed, gave you little privacy. Overall good atmosphere. Easy to walk around in town. Maybe 10-15 min walk to ferry.

    Really nice dorm rooms with lights chargers and divider curtains and an ideal location for stone town - definitely feels safe and accessible based on a fairly touristy street. Would recommend for a few days in stone town.

    In General the Hostel is a nice Place to spend a night or two, the location is great and the beds are comfy. However, during our stay there was a group of around 20 teenage boys staying there, some of whom shared one bed between three people and who couldn’t manage to actually aim for the toilet when peeing. The bathrooms where all super gross and it was insanely loud in the house the entire time. I think the hostel shouldn’t let this many people stay if they can’t keep up with the cleaning!

    I came here for the precious reviews, thought It will be my nest stay amd was so excited for it. But it seems I came at the wrong time The place was so bad I had to be outside all day and when the night came I couldn’t force my self to sleep so I left in the middle of the night because of that. Manager was greedy enough to put me in room full of teenagers more than (14) kids smelling bad , low hygiene maintained that I couldn’t stand one minute there , besides making noises all the time

    The principle of having 16 beds in one dorm is understable but gives the impression to be there just to give money. The idea of the beds separated by concrete walls is interesting but it is too many beds for one room. We are not chickens... For this concept, I think the price could be divided by 2. The place is not recommended for claustrophobics as you have the impression to be in a small boxes when sleeping there. Pictures on the website should be changed as it is not representative. Sorry :/
