    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.

    Very central place to stay! Air-conditioning in rooms with a very spacious and comfortable beds! Facilities were pretty good unfortunately no breakfast which kind of sucked. But they’re a great place to have breakfast just around the corner.

    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.

    The taxes doubled the price. Great beds with privacy curtains, rooms were very cold, we constantly turned the ac down. Very clean, great showers. not a lot of common room space. Good locker System, we felt very safe during our entire stay.

    Great location and the bed compartments are great as there is enough space for the backpack. Big lockers with automatic lock! But AC didn't work for two nights and there is no real chill out area/common room

    The beds are really big and comfy. They only bad thing about the hostels is that they were cockroaches on it.

    terrible cleaning. We found 3 cockroaches close by where we slept (2 smalls and 1 big 5cm more or less). Under the mattress was dirty too and sheet was not clean (they gave us a new one at least). Definitely not worth the money spent. To avoid. We spent one night only fortunately. We informed the staff as well and the answer was careless as they know already they are having these issues.
