We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights. One room was great; AC and shower worked well. The other had no AC and the water was only a trickle. Despiter several requests no-one seemed capable of arranging to fix anything. The room with no AC was incredibly hot and we ended up with all of us sleeping in the other room...

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....

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...

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...

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...
