There is not much choice of budget accommodation in Nungwi, so you might choose to stay here. IThe rooms and the location seemed better to us then the Nungwi Guesthouse. The rooms are ok and the breakfast is basic, but fine. If you want your room to be cleaned you can ask for it. There is not area to sit... More

We paid 40,000 per night for two double beds which we used only one. The light did not initially work and the hot water was off. Both got fixed the same evening. They did not clean the rooms once and seemed to just hang around not doing much. The location however is good close to all restaurants and bars. 30... More

The bungalows are right on the beach, with a great view from the front porch. Unfortunately, that means entrepreneurs can walk right up to the front porch with their wares, so you sometimes have to go inside to end the sales pitches. One night a man came and banged on the windows and shouted. I presume he walked off the... More

I spent around a week at Jambo Brothers, as it was towards the end of a 3 month solo backpacking trip, and I was getting a little wore out. First off, if it's low season, you can negotiate a pretty good price. I think I paid around $10 a night (Canadian) for a room with 2 bunk beds, and a... More

It was a fine place compared to the price (It's possible to discuss the price). We had some problems with our toilet and shower, but we did not expect much since it was so cheap. There are many young people staying there, and it's close to everything. The manager, Jimmy, told us that he wanted to help us book tickets... More

For the price you pay, you can't really moan about it! $30 per night per room with nice big bed, fair size bathroom and generally clean. We spent all day everyday on the beach which was a stumble outside the front door and was just everything as perfect as you can imagine. Can't go far wrong really not too bad.... More

cheapest place I could find(last week of travels..) Very nice spot still, close to the beach, sweet owners: I was in sick for a day, they came asking if I was alright because I didn't show up for breakfast. About the breakfast: nothing special. Rooms okay, not more than you need.

The rooms are bare, the pillows hard and breakfast leaves much to be desired but hey you are in Nungwi and practically on the beach for only $30 a night! You are paying for location here, no doubt about it. Close to the restaurant and bar strip, plus the massages, souveneirs, food and activities are all cheaper down that end... More

When we arrived there were no sheets, towels and not enough pillows for everyone. No toiletpaper, no soap and there were excrements in the toilet. Several spiders, moist and cockroaches. We asked the staff to get us what we needed, but it took a really long time before we got it. And then everyone didn't even get sheets and towels.... More
