  • Description


    Im Markus and I have build the Hostel from the ground up back in 2017. I am passionate about creating new projects and driven by founding new businesses with a social focus. Hostel is all about the good life. I like business but my mission is also to make a change on how we do it. Socially and environmentally responsible and overall sustainable.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Besides learning and gaining experiences in different sectors of tourism and/or aquaponics, you will meet amazing people throughout the island and have the chance to gather contacts in case you fall in love with the island just as we did. Besides that you can participate and become part of new projects we aim to launch in the near future. In case you are interested in other fields, we have contacts throughout the Rotary Club network and will be happy to share it.

  • Help


    One big part of our project is to green up our hostel with vertical gardening and aquaponic gardening in the second stage. This requires some knowledge however we will gladly learn alongside with you so don´t be afraid, there is plenty to learn on both sides. Our mission is to introduce this system in order to create a self sufficient system throughout Africa to ensure food supply all over. Pretty far from now but those who dare dreaming...

    In order to help this project, we could also use some help in the day to day tasks and training in our hostel. This can be in marketing, maintanance, computers, tours, basically everything you could think of in hospitality. Come up with a suggestion and we might just have the right spot for you in Zanzibar.

    Please be aware that we currently are very limited in what we can offer due to the pandemic.

  • Accommodation


    You will be staying at the Hostel which is right in the middle of Stone Town and close to all major tourist spots. You will have a bed in a shared or female dormitory. In some cases we can offer a private room. This highly depends on the season and on our arrangement.

    We usually provide one meal a day for our workawayers but also enjoy cooking together so it might end up in two meals at some days.
