    Very nice Hostel with great staff who are excellent at organising things for you at a good price - would recommend the spice tour organised by the hostel. They were also really helpful with information about public transport (dala-Dala). Rooms are comfy and private with CCTV on lockers. A little bit pricy for the area as some hotels (for 2 people) with pools etc. aren’t much more expensive. But overall would recommend.

    Right in the middle of Stone Town, 2 minute walk to the beach. Some nice restaurants to watch the sunset. Staff are really friendly, check in and check out is super easy and quick. The rooms have air-con and beds are comfy. Definitely worth the money 😊

    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.

    The best thing about this hostel is the location... it’s perfect. However, not really an atmosphere in the hostel.

    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.
