I stayed here in January 2015 for 3 nights. You basically get what you paid for, the place could do with some care. The rooms & linen were not so clean and my mosquito net was torn. Management seemed to be disengaged and nowhere to found most of the time. Although this is a good beach front location and affordable... More

Of course no luxury hotel - but more than perfect for backpackers! Easy and cheap accommodation, just come there and negotiate the price, you'll make an awesome price if you choose the right strategy ;-) small breakfast is included! very close to the beach and they helped me immediately with problems. Never had such an uncomplicated stay!

Don't be put off by the reception which is essentially a crumbling building with half the name rubbed out. This isn't a reflection of the bungalows themselves. Lovely big rooms with mosquito nets really really close to the beach. I just presumed it would be old water only because of the price but I had hot water every night. Great... More

Especially for you, Benat, Mr. Joshua, Mr. Boneless and all the other staff! Thank you! We had some really nice days and a lot to laugh with you. The accommodation was close to the beach and had nice breakfirst :-P which was included. Also the food in the evening was really good, especially the curry! Anytime again!

Superb accommodation, clean, neat and great air con. Right on the beach and the rates are excellent for the type of room you get compared to other budget places. Staff are open to negotiating rates up front as well. Payment needs to be in cash and USD is preferred. Take cash up north that you can draw from the Barclays... More

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
