Knowing that the income freom this guesthouse goes to the Moyo Mmoja projects for orphans (that I was lucky to visit) makes it easy to say that this is the best place in Bagamoyo. The rooms are basic but clean and nice. I came at the hottest time of the year when the rainy season was delayed and must say... More

This is one of the most welcoming guesthouses I have ever stayed at anywhere in the world.My children were welcomed and could enjoy a safe space to run around (and catch geckos). The staff were very helpful in all aspects. The beach and town are 5 mins walk with restaurants bars . However we preferred to use the kitchen.

Had a nice weekend in Bagamoyo and Moyo Mmoja. The staff and owner were very relaxed and helpful, and it feels good that the profit of my stay there goes to the Moyo Mmoja trust. I hope I have the possibility to come back another time!

A very good place if you plan to stay i Bagamoyo for a while. The rooms are good and the shared facilities are as good as you could expect for the price you pay. The kitchen is well equipped and working good. The location is good. Not in town so a little more silent but stil close enough to town... More

I was the only person staying here, and no-one was around when i arrived, so that does tend to affect one's impression, but it's a pleasant place.The common area has little natural light, but there's a nice terrace, and my room, if basic,was comfortable., At first,as a solo female, and only guest, I was a bit wary of the group...

I really like this hostel. The rooms are good and there is a kitchen which is great as you can cook your own foods. The staff are all really friendly and there have a nice sitting area with books. It is a simple place but very good value.

Moyo Mmoja Guesthouse is one of the places in Africa I hold dearest to my heart. I stayed here the first time in 2009 for about two mounts as part of an school project. We were four girls who completely fell in love with the place. I went back as part of a longer travel around East-Africa in January 2012... More

I just wanted to ensure that people staying at this guesthouse are very clear that this place is extremely basic. Hot water is unlikely, the rooms are very dark, our mirror was broken etc. However, it is a really sweet place, everyone is really friendly, and it serves as a fantastically good value base for Bagamoyo.
