It's hard to fully describe the experience we had at Mustpahas as it was simply put, magical. First off, it's absolutely beautiful set in a quaint garden with unique bungalows where you feel the taste of nature. Mustapha, the owner, is probably one of the loveliest people I have had the opportunity to meet and hang out with. Not only... More

Mustapha's Place is located in Bwejuu, which is like a 45 minute walk from Paje, 10 minutes by car. The beach is really disappointing, because there is seaweed everywhere. It doesn't look like the pictures at all, for those pictures you should go to Kendwa. The premise itself looks quite nice but the wifi never works. Besides that the staff... More

Hi Cover Just few words regarding your review. . hopefully in the future you will "responsible travel" with respect for the country where you go and the people. Mustapha’s place is located in south Bwejuu, 15/20minute walking to Paje, about 2 or 5 minute drive. We thanks mother nature for the stunning beach give us! Our staff are all honest... More

I would definitely recommend this lovely oasis of chilled out beauty, close to the beach with amazing sunrises! The staff are on hand for every whim and fancy and the food is excellent and obviously freshly prepared. The accommodation comprises of many traditionally handcrafted huts/houses with fabulous artwork and design. We stayed in the round house and it was cleaned... More

This gem in Bwejuu is a minutes walk from the beach. Very laid back atmosphere. The owner Mustapha is a great host. Enjoyed my 4 nights there. Big ups to Chef Abbas for making the best chicken pilau as well as accompanying me to stone town. I will definitely be back next time I visit Bwejuu.

We had a lovely time at Mustapha's Place - a real opportunity to slow down and chill out. Lovely spaces for reading, close to the beach, nice and secluded would definitely recommend. We were in the round room, which was very hot at night - would be great to have a few more fans! Food was nice, and had reasonable... More

We had the round room, which doesn't have it's own bathroom (we knew that before hand) and had a ton of space for the three of us. There were three double beds, and a small single bed up on the second floor. Only one light bulb in the room though. The staff was very laid back and helpful, especially when... More

One night is never enough, you will want to stay longer. Mustaphas has a tendency to grow on you and fast - you will find yourself extending your stay.. its happened to many, us included. Its the amazing atmosphere.. this is where a lot of wonderful people congregate :) Its great for backpackers and especially lone travellers cuz the vibe... More

Breakfast was included and good, fruit had been out and wasn't quite 'fresh'. Atmosphere and music in the background was great. A few steps from the ocean but only a few and an easy walk. Room that we had a confirmation for was crossed out and was given to someone else. It wasn't an error, it was intentionally taped over... More

Our stay at Mustapha's place was wonderful. Alesandra worked with us to help us get airport transfers, book flights (we did NOT want to take the ferry again on our way back to Tanzania), and ask us about possible excursions. We already had excursions booked but they did have good prices for them at the hostel. The rooms were clean... More

Located in front of the beach, on a more quiet stretch then the kite-surfing beach further south, Mustafa's place is well placed. The setup of the Mustafa's worth a few photos and there are several spots where you can chill - hammocks, around a fire at night. Mustafa's staff is super friendly and helpful and am really happy I stayed... More
