This was my second time here, and it was great, lots of good information on tours, great staff, good food. My only complaint was that the internet was almost non existent, it was so slow.

Super cosy stay at Jollyboys. Many young people there and it's easy to get in touch with others. Had a small problem with our car and the manager was very helpful in resolving it. Staff super friendly, food was awesome, even for a veggie ;)

This can best be described as a "Club Med" for the backpacking crowd. Clean well organized but rather sterile. Smart marketing. Only WIFI is in vacinity of bar!

Stayed at Jollyboys Backpackers end of April in a private room with ensuite bathroom. Was a great stay, good and safe place, and I got to meet a ton of fellow travellers. Definitely recommended, will go there again for next visit!

Great location great people. Livinstone can be caotic but Jollyboys is an oasis in the niddle of it all. They have a great travel office that will help you spend your time in the area wisely. And everyone is happy!

Jollyboys backpackers is located close to the city center, which makes it easy to access most of Livingstone. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant has fairly decent meals available for reasonable prices. Wifi is available in bar/restaurant area, but crawls like a snail during crowded times. Private rooms are comfortable, although, the shower heads could use a cleaning (lime & calcium buildup). The best feature is the opportunity to meet some wonderful travelers!

Helpful staff, secure compound and rooms, decent facilities, great base to explore Livingstone from. Not a fan of pppn fee structures, I paid $80 USD for 1 night in a small room with austere services, this would get me a nice hotel room in most non touristy locations.
