It looks a bit worn down at first sight. The reception would need some love. I stayed here for two nights and it was a good budget alternative. Breakfast included. And it is basically on the beach. The staff here are really friendly and helpful.

We moved to Jambo Brothers from another place in Nungwi and stayed for three nights. I found it well priced for the great location on the beach. The rooms are basic but the air con works really well. As others have mentioned, the bathrooms are pretty dismal but the toilets flush properly, which is an improvement on other hotels nearby.... More

The bungalows are nice, bathroom and water pressure sucks, but for 25$ you can't expect more. It was nice to stay there, the beach is wonderful! The restaurant where you get the breakfast (is included) is not good organized, but the people are quite nice and the food is ok and cheap. Wifi is jut in the restaurant, if it's... More

Good location and some of the rooms are rather nice for budget, but there's no staff around and no one who tells you about breakfast and other stuff. There's two parts of the place, with different restaurants for breakfast, and nobody tells you which one to go to. No wifi. Broken and dirty showers and restrooms in the most low... More

Stayed here for two nights during low season. The rooms are basic and clean with own toilet and hot showers. Located right on the beach and is reasonably priced. This is a perfect place for backpackers, for others looking for European hotel standards look somewhere els. I'm super happy having a room with own toilet, mosquito net without wholes and... More

We were planing to stay in Jambiani and last minute decision we came to Nungwi and choose Jambo Brothers which is for budget hotel and in the middle of Nungwi beach. It has a wonderful restaurant and you can walk to sea in one minutes. There are some bars around hotel and noise could be problem during nights but we... More

We stayed for three nights here, and we would not pay for breakfast ("supermarket" only 150 m away) so we arranged 40.000 per night (low season-price). The beach with resturants are only a few seconds walk away, very close! The rooms have mosquito nets and clean sheets. Not so clean towels. They have laundry service. TIP : Behind the building...

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved being so close to the beach. The location was really great, but the rooms were very basic and not particularly clean. We didn't spend much time in our room so this didn't bother us too much. We found it quite difficult to work out who was actually working at Jambo Brothers as... More

I stayed here back in 2012 and came here again in 2015 with my girlfriend. It's a very good option for someone who wants to stay somewhere cheap but also wants to be close to the beach (20 meters away). The rooms are relatively clean, however the bathroom had some mold and the wall had some dirt stains. I'd recommend... More
