Manch Lodge offers good value for money and is very conveniently located. We were able to walk everywhere during our stay there. We had only planned to stay a couple of nights, but loved Stone Town so much that we ended up staying longer. The lodge has a nice atmosphere. It's a bit shabby and could be a little cleaner,...

The staff were very friendly. Although I rather stupidly tried to go out of the hotel during Ramadan in a pair of shorts, the staff politely asked me to go and change due to it being Ramadan. I was not offended whatsoever and they put it in such a way that I did not feel embarrassed. We always had a... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for one night and walked here from the ferry dock after arriving from dar. It is in a beautiful part of stone town. For breakfast we had pancakes, bread, omelette, tea, fruit and juice. It was really nice. The rooms were clean and very large. The beds were comfy too. Overall I... More

Dirty and the dorm room had like 30 beds in the room. Do yourself a favor and go next door to Haven and get yourself a private room for $14/night. The only thing good here was decent wifi. While sitting outside, I watched SOOO many dissatisfied groups/families who left upset, arguing with the front desk over some matter or other... More

Perfect for a base in Stone Town, friendly staff. Stayed in 5 person private bedroom and in dorm, inexpensive. Delicious breakfast, serves lunch indoors for tourists during Ramadan which was a major plus.

Slept in de dorm for only 14,- dollar a night, very cheap. Good beds, friendly staff en nice garden to sit in. Breakfast is also OK. The only strange thing was that a staff member asked me a couple of times for cigarettes, thats unprofessional imo. But very nice and cheap and central way, Like!

I stayed both in the dorm and the triple room. The rooms are equiped with mosquito nets and fans and the bed are comfortable. This hostel is a bit tricky to find, so don't be surprised if you need to ask for directions. Most of the people around Stone Town know about this place so there shouldn't be any problem... More

This is budget accom—a place to lay your head and freshen up. And it’s perfect for that. Its location, hard to find in the snaking streets of Stone Town, but near “Jaws Corner” (just keep asking around, you’ll get there), is walking-central to everything (including the markets and local nightclubs) and safe. It’s cheap and cheerful: really nice courtyard and... More

Friendly staff is the key to success in hospitality. I lost things twice in this lodge ans they found it for me. Breakfast is basic but it's free I guess a cup of tea and a pancake is not a bad way to start your day. The lodge offers free wireless, luggage store and safety deposit box for your valuables....
