“Awesome chill-out place”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

I spent almost a week at Jambo traveling alone. It is a paradise on earth. You really live right on the beach. The staff is great, extremely socializing and has fun working. They really made this trip perfect. If you travel alone or in a small group, take the 10-bed dorm room. You'll make friends so easy!!! Every Friday there is a huge beach party - don't miss that!!!
Thanks to all the staff for making the time so perfect :)

I spend four night in Jambo with my friend and we already miss the place - it was so lovely place! Cute bungalows straight on the beach. Very kind and helpful staff. I absolutely recommend! And Paje village is at a walking distance.

My partner and I were driving into Paje area looking for accommodation. As it was getting dark, we just followed the first signboard that we saw at the road side not knowing what was to follow. That led us to Jambo Beach Bungalows which is hidden behind the brightly lid Dhow Inn. The moment we arrived, I just fell in love with the surroundings, the Swahili style (I think) bungalows and the beach and sea at your door step! There were many hammocks, benches and sofas for us to chill out and read books while enjoying the nice sea breeze. Even though the toilets and shower door couldnt be locked/closed properly, I didnt think its a big issue. Bon fire! There's a bon fire every night and it would be such a great place to hang out with others! Last but not least, it is an excellent value for the money younpay to stay here...at least thats what we thought (we are two backpackers with a tight budget!)! Enjoy Zanzibar!

Great value, could use a bit of tightening up as far as the small details go but would definitely stay again. Tasty food and friendly staff. Right on the beach, huts, hammocks and plenty of chill space. Breakfast is cooked a la minute for you each morning. Prices of food and drinks are a bit high and a community fridge would be extremely helpful.

During my volunteer work on Zanzibar I used to go to Jambo every weekend!! They have the biggest Friday-Night-Parties, right at the Beach!! Super Cocktails, funny Bartenders, beachfire... just amazing! The accommodation is perfect for backpackers, low-budget tourists and volunteers. And during day time you can relax and go for a swim, play Volleyball..what ever you like :-) Already looking forward to my next stay in Jambo!! Lissa MG
