We stayed here as it is a very convenient walk of just a few minutes to the Zanzibar ferry. Ideal location, near banks & shops as well. Good price, and very good dinner & breakfast. Friendly & helpful staff. Room adequate, clean but nothing special.

I booked the hotel since I wanted to stay near the ferry. Trust me it’s the best from staff to cleanliness and best location for anyone traveling to zanzibar. I booked the dorm where there is 3 bed was never disappointed. I would highly recommend.
