Drifters, run by travellers for travellers, is located overlooking the gorgeous turquoise waters of Paje Beach. It is the perfect place to relax and socialize with fellow travellers in Africa.

Being the only Backpackers on the beach in Paje means you always have a clear view of the ocean and can hear the sound of rolling waves. It doesn't matter if you're in the comfort of your own bed, tanning by the swimming pool, or chilling out and having a cold drink at our well-stocked sea-view bar.

All of our beds come with mosquito nets, linen, towels, fans, bedside lights, pillows and rooms are cleaned every day by our friendly staff. All of our brand-new self-contained dorms are on the ground floor, with a veranda facing the ocean. All dorms have concrete floors. Our private rooms are all self-contained located on the 2nd floor, with a private sea view balcony. The private rooms have wooden floors for a more intimate feeling.

Our spacious chill-out area, which is jammed packed with palm trees and shade, is right on the beach and offers different spots for you to hang out in. There are our Swahili wooden dhow boats turned into tables and benches, which are perfect for drinking games, loads of hammocks for you to chose from while also enjoying a book from our 'exchange book shelf.' There are sunbeds right on the beach and around our swimming pool waiting to be used and abused by you while trying to achieve that perfect tan.

Our guests enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the whole premises. We offer free tea and lavazza coffee in the morning to shake off that hangover or put a spring in your step. We provide free secure storage of a storage, free parking, night security, and have multilingual staff (English, Swahili, Spanish, French and German) to make you more comfortable. We prepare communal 'family dinners' at low prices to maker our guests feel at home. On top of this we offer airport/ferry transfers, island tours and beachfront Yoga. If that is not enough we are friends with water sports centres and can help organise scuba diving, surfing, kite surfing, fishing and snorkelling at friendly prices.

So what is stopping you from booking your stay with us and joining the Drifters family?

    The vibes are amazing, especially now during the pendemic one of the only places where is actually life happening. It feels like a big family. In the evening they provide you with healthy food. Twice a week you can be part of a nice barbecue. The place is right at the beach, when you wake up in the morning you can hear the sound of the waves and at night you can see the moon rising. If you ask for any information, they will not hesitate to help you out. All in all a perfect stay. Thank you

    Es war bereits mein zweites Mal auf Sansibar und ich kann nur jedem Empfehlen nach Paje zu kommen. Dies ist meiner Meinung nach der schönste Teil von Sansibar, abseits der All Inclusive Resorts. So wie ich das festegestellt habe war Drifters eines der belebtesten Hostels mit und damit auch mein Favorit! Dave, einer der beiden Gründer, ist ein sehr aufgeschlossener Typ der immer einen Tipp auf Lager hat und für eine super Gemeinschaft unter den Gästen im Hostel sorgt 💯☀🌊

    Klasse Hostel, das von David und seinem mega freundlichen Staff Tag für Tag in Topform gehalten wird. Die Atmosphäre hier ist sehr familiär, das abendliche communal dinner bringt immer positive vibes mit sich und auch die Durchreisenden sind immer wieder eine Bereicherung für den Spirit des Hostels. Dazu kommt noch die unschlagbare Lage direkt am traumhaftesten Strand von Paje. Absolute Top-Empfehlung!

    Das Drifters ist ein superschönes, neues Hostel. Die Atmosphäre mit den Bungalows, der Bar und dem Swimmingpool ist super entspannt. Die Mitarbeiter sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. David, der Besitzer, bringt die Leute zusammen und sorgt für eine gute Stimmung. Er hilft auch unkompliziert z.B. beim Organisieren eines Taxis. Ich mag die Lage direkt am Strand von Paje, umgeben von Kiteschulen und Restaurants. Nebenan in Teddy‘s place gibt es öfters mal Partys...

    What a hidden gem on pajes kite coast. Lovely small wooden houses with basic accommodation but great hospitality. The owner takes great care of you and has created an relaxed and beautiful environment where the backpacking spirit is fully alive. Great communal dinners and an oceanfront bar/pool area make it hard to leave. All thumbs up.

    Ich hatte einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt im Drifters! Die Lage ist nicht zu übertreffen, direkt am Strand. Die Eigentümer und Angestellten super nett und sehr hilfsbereit. Die Hütten sind einfach aber sauber und gemütlich. In der Nähe, am Strand finden sich viele Lokale und das Dorf ist in wenigen Minuten zu Fuss zu erreichen. Gerne wieder!

    The place is great, amazing beach front location and always something going on! Enjoyed my stay very much and would totally stay again. Be careful with your bar tab or pay right right away. I was charged way too much in the end.
