Very big, clean rooms with bathroom and small balcony. Only problem was no mosquito nets. Location is great, small walk from ferry ports and dalla dalla stops. Breakfast wasn't great - think our papaya had gone off. But other than that it's great for the price and much better than other budget accommodation we tried in Dar

Cheap place with a central location. Rooms large with a simple bathroom. Could be cleaner and is lacking mozzie nets. It's ok for a stopover and you can walk to the port for zanzibar. Be careful of taxis in Dar as there have been many robberies. Only use real taxis but to see which ones are real is difficult so check everything twice

This lodge had very simple facilities with a simple room layout that included 2 beds, wardrobe and desk. The room was spacious however when inspecting our room for the first time we did have some problems. The first was the balcony door was broken but staff resolved the problem very swiftly. The room had a fan and air conditioning which both worked perfectly well and was a real treat in the humidity. However the bathroom did not feel clean and breakfast was very simple not substantial. Nevertheless there was wifi in the main lobby. Would recommend if you are staying for a night but no longer.

Room Tip: Try to book a room on the higher floors. Those rooms are generally better plus the view of the busy...

This hotel is a good choice if you are just making a quick stopover in Dar es Salaam on your way to Zanzibar. It is a couple blocks from the ferry. It is basic and was pretty clean. If you are planning on staying in Dar es Salaam longer I would head out to a different area of town such as the Q bar which has limited hostel rooms but is closer to the

We stayed here due to Safari Inn which is around the corner being full. This turned out to be a good thing as we preferred it. As stated already the rooms do not have mosquito nets but we did not get any bites. Location is close to port, ATMs and good local food. Basically just a cheap ok place to stay for a night or two.

As the title says, it´s very simple but it´s cheap, could use a bit more cleaning but a good option for one night passing trough. The breakfast was 1 toast and some fruit. The bathroom could def. need some more cleaning, good wifi in the "lobby"

Really there is nothing special to expect here but the rooms are clean low priced amd
Towels and toiletpaper are provided. Only diaadvamtage is that i had no met but the room is properly closed of didnt see 1 mosquito and there is a fan right above the bed makin it very difficult for mosquito's to sting. Also i left my phone in a taxi and the hotel personel even managed to arrange that the taxi driver brought it bak at 1 o'clock in the night! That's what I call exelent service!!!!
