I was in Zanzibar on a quick weekend escape from Dar by myself so I hadn't booked ahead. I found Union Bungalows via the bus driver I took from Stone Town so no doubt I set myself up to pay his commission also. The price of the room started at $40 and I managed to get it down to 40000Tsh..was even pleased with myself until I spoke to others that night who had paid 25k for the same room the night before (It was low season)!
The room was a two double bed room just behind Loca bar. For me this was perfect, just off the beach and not too far from the bar for music, food and drinks. The room was basic. I only discovered later that the bulb in the main room was missing and when I had a shower it was cool at best. The mosquito nets on the beds appeared fine and the room was clean if well worn.
I'm pretty robust so I didn't find it terrible but I'll probably be back to Nungwi but probably not Union Bungalows.
