Liked: The staff are very knowledgeable about no al activities and who to go.through, there is obviously a commission involved for them, however they do have your best interest and safety in mind. Ask them first before you book anything. Once booked they arranged everything brilliantly.

Disliked: The only issue was the walk in to town. It's a solid 30mins... But taxis are cheap. Compared to everything else in Vic falls.

Liked: Nice grounds with lots of sculpture and seating areas. Helped me arrange airport transfer. Woman owner was nice and made a good dinner.

Disliked: No glass windows, just screens which had holes in them. Room smelled bad. Sheets and towels were moist and smelled horrible. Seriously the grossest bed I've had in a year of budget traveling. Male owner talks horribly to his workers - I was so disgusted by the way he spoke to them I would have checked out earlier if I hadn't only booked one night. Also vacillated between being accommodating of guests /talkative and nice/ very helpful with planning to completely dismissive "I don't work here." What?

Liked: Welcoming and just comfortable like a home. Little Rosey the dog was so lovely!

Disliked: The mattress in the room was so thin! I felt every bit of the bed frame. The pool seemed quite dirty, you couldn't see your feet. Separate beds pushed together instead of one for a couple was disappointing, the mosquito nets separated us.

Liked: Great value hostel, with internet, hot water and super helpful wonderful staff. It was very easy/ efficient to organise activities and wifi was extremely reasonably priced. If you're on a budget and want self catering or catered options, this is a fantastic place to stay.

Disliked: It's a 20 minute walk to town but still walkable. We didn't have a key to our room so were slightly concerned about safety but nothing happened.

Liked: The plants around the swimig-pool.

Disliked: Actually, the owner makes me pay more (as I told to him, I already paid 10 per cent on hostelbookers but it certainly made a mistake.....of course!). The swiming pool was dirty, the comfort of the room is spartiate, the fan didn't work. For two people, the twin private room doesn't value what it costs. There was noise late in the night. Unfortunatly, there is few cheap accomodations in this area. Vic falls seem to be reserved for rich people. What a shame.
