What is so much fuss about this place? Someone recommended me to go here, atleast for a drink. I went one afternoon for a coffee. Staff is uninterested. Coffee is okay but bit Burned out and Tired just like staff. When I asked for the wifi password, they said I have to pay for wifi. Seriously??? I visited their website to know more. These people when they are in Thailand, want everything free and included for a meagre money on a coffee or a drink. Here in Tanzania they show their true color. I usually stay out of muzungu's establishments, it's pretty pricey and lack a basic courtesy and imagination. Wanna make money for every damn thing and they picture the rest of the world as greedy and money minded.
Wanted to go here since a long time, finally managed to make it happen. Amazing place, good food and the vibe is just different. Very quiet, also has dorms and camping options at a good price. Beach is just walking distance. Friendly people too. Loved the way the rooms still have the wooden doors from the old times and the concept of the place is just on point!
This is a nice place in an characterful Building close to all of Bagamoyo’s attraction. I only give three points, because the staff, while very friendly, were hardly trained: - they didn’t bother to ask if we needed anything if we sat down at one of the tables, instead we had to find someone to take our order - the waiting time for the food was way too long (we waited 90 minutes for lunch on the first day) - they forgot to bring napkings (every time), the soap bottle in the room was empty, etc. etc. all small details, but they add up. Finally, the bathrooms could use a little investment :) This said, it’s still a nice play to stay and probably the best option in Bagamoyo.
Wow! What an amazing place to stay! First of all the staff were super friendly, approachable and friendly throughout our stay. We were offered an upgrade and it didn’t disappoint. The scenery and decor were lovely, giving a great atmosphere! We loved the food - we ate breakfast and dinner here - and drinks were great too. The dorm room was very spacious however it was a little damp. The showers were a little inconsistent with pressure and heat!
This place is fantastic. I stayed for a couple of nights recently in one of the upstairs rooms. The house is an old building, in keeping with the general vibe of Bagamoyo. Therefore, the rooms are large and the ceilings very high. You really get a sense that not much has changed since the house was built, except that it’s been touched up to cater to the modern traveler. The rooms are minimally furnished, but everything has been done very tastefully. The location is great: close to a couple of restaurants, steps from the beach, and on the edge the old town of Bagamoyo. The communal area around the pool is really nicely done. Hammocks, tatami mats etc - it makes it easy to chat to other guests if you want. The food is delicious and the staff were a delight to deal with. The owner is also very helpful when it comes to answering any questions you might have. It’s a unique place to stay, and I certainly hope to return.…
