We chise the Flamingo Guesthouse relying on the suggestion in the Lonely Planet. Upon arriving to Zanzibar we checked the rooms and prices in several guesthouses, but Flamingo was by far the best option for our budget. Stayed for 4 nights in June 2012. There were 4 of us and we stayed in a 4-bed room with shared bathroom/WC. The... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay though we didn't spend much time in the hostel. Staff were ok. We liked that it was a bit out of the main tourist hub because we got to explore different parts of Stone town but it would not be for everyone. Great bokoboko place around the corner!

Me and my boyfriend didn’t expect a lot cause it was cheap but what we experienced was absolutely horrifying! I woke up in the middle of the night cause a rat was crawling around on me!! Absolutely terrified, I went to the receptionist who couldn’t care less. He just told me that this could not be possible and that we... More

I stayed here during my time in Zanzibar. Ok, so it's cheap and in a good location but the place was disgusting. There were rats crawling over me and my boyfriend in the middle of the night. They got in through a huge hole in the wall of our room which opened out into the corridor where the staff stood... More

This is a very basic place to stay but if you are looking for a room to stay in a few days it's great. The rooms are v clean, comfortable beds, fans, mozi nets, you can choose ensuite or not (I'd recommend as it's only $15 a night for ensuite incl breakfast). The breakfast is basic but filling... fresh fruit,... More

Very Cheap. Very Clean. Great Breakfast included. Basic but does the job when travelling around Zaznibar. Stayed here on 3 separate occasions - unless you're looking for bar/restaurant/pool/luxury then I don't see why you would stay anywhere else!

A great budget place to stay at in Stone Town. Basic, clean rooms, friendly staff and good location: 10 min walk from Forodhani Gardens and the old town. Breakfast is simple, but good, served on the rooftop. There's a free safe at the reception to store your valuables. Really liked the staff, there were super friendly and nice. I stayed... More

It's a budget option, so don't expect much. There's water, there are mosquito nets and fans, the beds are comfy enough and eating your basic breakfast (toasts, jam, eggs, fruit) on the rooftop is a nice start of the day. Don't expect the receptionist to greet you with a smile and show to the most interesting places though:) All in... More

This guest house cost us approximately £7 per night. Breakfast was basic but adequate, lovely cups of tea served with breakfast. Rooms are basic but enough as we were out all day and evening. First impression of the place was miles away from luxury, however, you soon feel safe and at home here, basic but I will return. The staff... More
