Stayed at Mustapha's for 3 days. The rooms, staff, food, and general layout of the accommodation are really nice. The atmosphere here is super relaxed with a chilled reggae vibe. This place is a little piece of paradise in Bwejuu. Worth a visit.

I spent almost three weeks at Mustapha's Place. It's the perfect place to stay when you are at the east coast of Zanzibar. You'll feel home in paradise. The staff is more than friendly and helpful. Food is simply amazing and incredible tasty. The rooms are very nice and each one is individual and lovely decorated. Back in the european... More

This is a great place if you're looking to stay in Zanzibar on a budget and in a very relaxed atmosphere. To start, if you're looking for excessive luxury, this is not the place. The rooms are basic but the beds are very comfortable and the bathroom has everything you need. No hot water, but honestly there wasn't a single... More

We stayed here for 1 week and it was a nice change from busy stonetown. Situated close to the beach and 20 minute walk along the beach to paje. The homeowners door also has a pool you can use for a small fee. Our room was OK, clean but very hot with only 1 standing fan to cool the room,... More

We have spent one week in Mustapha´s place! The personal is very-very kind! We booked treetop room first, but it was too high for us. The room was directly changed from personal to one big room on the ground with private WC! We were very happy about it and spent wonderful week at Mustapha´s! We are very thankful to all... More

I stayed at this delightful place for 6 weeks and could have stayed much longer. The staff are friendly and there is a real family feel with locals visiting often. The rooms are unique each one with a different creative touch, the garden is.well cared for and a feast for the senses. Every night the food was good and there... More

I've been only three days at Mustapha's Place. A corner of paradise, really lovely and I wanna come back soon. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, they make you feel relaxed like at home. Bar and restaurant are open all the day and you can have fine and fresh food and drinks. You can read a book listening... More

For a cheap beach hostel-esque place, Mustafa's was a great find. It's about 150 meters from the waterfront and is made up of lots of cool thatch roof houses. The beach is a little nicer if you walk down south a bit, but it's not bad in front of Mustafa's. It's a pretty hipster place, with a chill/rastafarian sort of... More

We stayed three nights there in a double room with shared bathroom for 50 USD/night. For Zanzibar close to the beach (just 1 min to walk) a pretty good deal. The facilities are nice, with flowers everywhere and very clean. Nice Rastafari-atmosphere at the bar. Service is excellent. The food is good but there is one uneatable spice in every... More
