The dorm beds are horrifying. They feel like they are going to fall at any moment. I'm a 115lb female and as I got on to the top bunk I thought I was going to break it. The kitchen is only opened from 7-7 and the options are very limited. I decided to cut my stay short and go elsewhere.

Pros: - Very friendly security guards and some of the staff are also friendly and willing to help well except one. - They make the best food (Nshima and beef stew was the best). - Reliable, fast and free wifi. - Daily shuttle to Victoria Falls at 10H30 Cons -- Although I booked 4 male dorm I was made to share the first night with a girl, second day with 3 other males and the third day with 3 ladies!!!! - Third night a 5th guy was shown to our room after midnight but we had no space. -

Excellent hostel. Worth a stay there and it's a very good alternative to the other popular backpackers in town. Good facilities and overall no issues whatsoever

The shuttle bus to the falls was really handy. Location was good, close to amenities like ATM and a few restaurants.

The set up is nice with the lounge area by the pool and the bar nearby very centrally located within Livingstone. The dorm rooms are very small and unfortunately ended up on a top bunk which is far too close too the ceiling, especially if you want to sleep under the mosquito net then you have to deal with having the mosquito net touching your entire body which is not an enjoyable experience. There was no fan in the room first night and no plugs for charging. Also the noise level was quite high
