Liked: Great central location, can walk from bus station, supermarkets, ATMs and bars are all close, great pool area, bar, cushioned chill out areas, free water cooler to refill ur bottle (great added bonus!), free shuttle to the Falls which is only 20mins away and the beautiful staff are only too happy to help book whatever activities u want to do!

Disliked: The polished red flooring can be slippery! It's so silly but almost went flying a couple of times!

Liked: Bright, cheerful and the staff were very helpful. I also liked the free lift to Victoria Falls daily and the free airport pick up.

Disliked: Bathrooms were under repair, so it felt like there was a bit of a shortage...also the rooms felt a bit dirty. But this is Africa, so by those standards it wasn't bad. Also, even though there was a real age range, there was a lot of drinking and it was loud at night.
