Liked: Clean place, perfect accommodation for those passing through Vic Falls.

Disliked: Food was a rip off and the pool was cold. Mosquito nets had holes in and thus 6/7 people got bitten to pieces overnight. The area is high risk for Malaria too.

Liked: The hostel was very cheap, but if you pay little bit more at another lodge you can stay closer to the falls.

Disliked: No locks for our tent, and the safes at the reception were too small for a laptop.

Liked: Very friendly staff. The property is very peacefully landscaped with a little stream and pond along with hammocks to lounge on. Also, the barbecue is excellent! It's a great place to stay if you need a peaceful place for cheap.

Disliked: You need to bring your own towels and food to snack on after 7pm since it isn't staffed 24 hours. But then again, this is a budget hostel, so if you want more, you're better off looking at a more expensive place.
