“Wish I didn't have to leave!!”
Reviewed 4 January 2011

Although not along the bach, the walk is only a short distance from this wonderful guest house....
So close to all amenities, in particular, Baga Point, where many of the locals gather and enjoy each other's company.
Never have I felt so good about the people as I did in Bagamoyo.
This Guesthouse was my favourite place to stay, as the staff were all very attentive and informative.
The luxury of the kitchen was a great bonus....There was also the option of having your clothes washed and hung to dry....honestly, my clothes never came as clean as they did at Moya Mmoja...thanks Momma Jackie...
One can olny feel safe with the Mosai guards keeping a watchful eye at night.....
Missing this place and the super friendly staff.......

Moyo Mmoja in undoubtedly the best budget accommodation in Bagamoyo. The rooms are great - big, clean, comfortable, well kept, with mosquito nets and fans. You can even get your own private "bungalow house" if you want. Staying at Moyo Mmoja is actually better than staying at one of the impersonal hotels, irrespective of cost, because the staff are so great there. The warm staff will instantly be your friends and expose you to a side of Tanzanian culture you would never have seen staying in a big hotel. They can also give you great tips of things to do in Bagamoyo - a fun, relaxing town. Most importantly, all proceeds from the guesthouse go to fund absolutely essential services for the most vulnerable individuals in Bagamoyo. Even though rooms are very inexpensive at Moyo Mmoja, a little money goes a long way in Tanzania, so your small room fee will do much to help those who need it most.

If you are anywhere near Bagamoyo, you should definitely stay here. The staff is helpful and friendly and the price can't be beat. I've actually rented a room for months at a time while doing volunteer work and Moyo Mmoja truly has become my home away from home. Their kitchen allows you to prepare your own food if you so desire, which is great when you want a break from ugali or rice and beans. There is also a cozy family room to relax in and a great front porch where you can unwind and listen to the crazy sounds of Africa. And, to top it all off, the proceeds from your stay at Moyo Mmoja go to homes for orphaned children!
My only disclaimer is to remember that this a guesthouse and not a resort. The rooms are simple, but clean. You will find a mosquito net, bedding, towel and fan, but you will not find AC or hot water. If you are looking for affordable, clean and friendly, then this is your place. If you are looking for luxury, try one of the beach resorts and pay western prices.
