    Lost & Found was in the perfect location and the hostel itself was super clean with air conditioning in the bedrooms thank goodness. The storage lockers fit my day pack and my big pack sat at the foot of my bed. Within the bed area there were two powerpoints which was super helpful too. Would recommend!

    Probably the best hostel in Stone Town - the dorm was very comfortable and gave you plenty of privacy and security. The location is incredible.

    I think it was the perfect location to spend this one night! The beds were very comfortable and gave you enough privacy. The staff was very friendly so we could really enjoy our stay. The only negative thing to mention is that is was a little bit too could in the sleeping room. But for one night it was totally okay.

    The Lost and Found is located in the heart of Stonetown with many restaurants and things to see nearby. The staff were absolutely the best (they even helped my friends and I when we stepped on a sea urchin). Bathrooms were very clean, rooms were air conditioned and the balcony from the mixed dorm is phenomenal. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Stonetown to stay here. Also they sell 1.5 L of water for 1000 Tsh which was very handy! Thanks for everything Lost and Found :)

    It’s the hostel you opt to pay for. Location of the hostel is right in the centre of stone town with crazy accessibilities to all over Zanzibar. Stonetown cafe is a cafe next to it. Guides throng the street outside for all budgets. Quite a happening area not essentially the hostel. But this is one of the best bets one can opt for in stonetown Bang for the buck paid

    There is not a kitchen which we are used to at any backpackers. Or just a kettle to make a cup of coffee

    First of all- the price you advertised on your page does NOT include the tax at the hostel. There was a significant tax there which added a substantial amount to our overall cost. Also, the hostel has poor WiFi, no breakfast/snacks, only 16 bed dorms, and cold showers. I have no idea why the hostel cost this much to stay at, I’ve stayed at other hostels with breakfast included and hot showers that were much less. The location of the hostel is right in stone town, however security is lacking.
