The room used to be a garage, quite clean but they need to change the matresses, they're too old and thin, very unconfortable to sleep. It's not so close to downtown but there are not many options of hostels in Harare. The staff was nice though.


For one night I was sleeping in the 6bed dorm which was quite hot, maybe a fan would help a bit. As many people are sleeping there and passing by outside you cannot open the windows all night. In the kitchen a few things are missing (more cups etc would be great) but you will have everything to fulfill basic needs. The garden is great, big area to chillout and relax, maybe rebuild the chairs/sunloungers though.


I strongly suggest they improve their communication by replying e-mails, WA, or texts; and also write down any bookings requested by customers. Thank you.
