This morning we were walking along the beach and were offered to go on a private trip to Memba island by the Union Tours and Safari company. We agreed on a price of 60$ for 2 of us and were told that we were going to be taken to Memba island where we could do snorkeling, visit the Memba island... More

Nice and clean rooms right on the beach front! Enjoy the beach right on your door step. They have a restaurant in front of the houses too. They have cleanest rooms we have seen in Africa and even hot water in shower! We will stay here again when we come back to Nungwi.

This hostel proved to be the best value place to stay in Nungwi. There are some differences in the quality of the rooms. Some are a bit smelly but just see the room before accepting. The breakfast is nice and served at your table with choice of omelet and good coffee. The manager is smiling and is very easy going.... More

Beach is super nice! There's lot's of things possible and on the west side so you have the sunset. The bungalows are not that good. Smell like fungus, spacious though and with running water (no hot). The restaurant is ok, tasty food. The breakfast is rather small and not that good. We liked the stay, but wouldn't want to make... More

We spent here one night,of course one of the cheapest bungalows of nungwi. The room was ok, big but noto nice, neither terrible. Directly on the beach. We found bed bugs everywhere, pay attention. Maybe we were unlucky with the room. The staff was super nice, the price is high compared to the standard, but nungwi is not a cheap... More

While the room was slightly overprice, few problems with noisy plumbing and just ok in terms cleanliness (be advised that the bed linens and towels are not changed unless you ask, nor the room cleaned daily), we are extremely resentful that the manager set up a scam with the taxi driver that forced us to pay three times what has...

We arrived in Nungwi totally exhausted from a long and hot dala-dala journey from the south and Union Bungalows was the first place we looked at. It's a shame that we didn't have more energy to look around, because staying there was not a very pleasant experience. The room was super basic, a bed and a toilet with a noisy... More

The place has a really good location. It's a less than a minute walk to the beach. I got my room for 30000 TSH. It has one huge bed, a ceiling fan, a huge bathroom and breakfast in the porch. Near this place are good restaurants- local and foreign, which can be located by the beach or behind the place... More

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.
