Stayed here twice during my time in Zanzibar - when I first arrived and then on my way back out. The owner/manager is incredibly friendly, remembered me a week after I first arrived and even saved me the same room. I paid $20 and probably could have haggled but was only ever staying 1 night so its hard to bargain... More

It was the cheapest guest house we found but a surprisingly nice one! The owners are very friendly and the breakfast was simple but tasty. The bathrooms are shared but overall it's quite clean. Double rooms cost 25 dollars per night. The location is superb! Would come back any time!

I paid $14 for a private room here, which is the cheapest decent place you will find in stone town. It was a little hard to find, but definitely a better value than the crappy place next door that charges the same rate for a dorm bed in a 30-bed room and is filthy. It was clean, showers were good,... More

I wouldn't recommend this Guesthouse to anyone. The only positive thing is the location, in the middle of Stonetown. This comes with bad service, very noisy surroundings and crappy bathrooms however. Even after paying 180 dollars for three nights, two rooms, in advance, apparently the Guesthouse's cashflow didn't allow for investment in towels. We were given bedsheets to dry ourselves... More

This place was the cheapest on offer (at 30USD per night for a couple) in Stonetown, but awful value by Tanzanian standards, but I guess that is to be expected. We got a bit of a raw deal: our bedroom was directly behind the check-in desk, which made us feel a little exposed and unsafe, as the front door to... More

I spent just one night at the haven Guesthouse. It was overall good, considering the standards. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. The staff was not too kind to be honest. Not that they were rude, but not even particularly friendly. The location is perfect and the neighborhood so nice.

A lovely little guest house which spotlessly clean and run by friendly and helpful people in the centre of stone town. I would definitely recommend.

This little hotel can boast the most excellent of managers, a man very responsive to your needs and very proud of the manner of his management (rightfully so, as one van eat off the shining floors). The beds are not the best but that is minor. It is not easy to get a good and inexpensive place in Tone Town,... More
