Its really near the town centre and very convenient to get out there to shop, eat and wander around. Wifi isnt free though. Limited hot water showers. the 4 bed room is a little small too. That being said, im not sure if other hostels in Victoria falls area are any better. the music from the bar is really loud and ends at around midnight.. but if you fancy socializing around then it is a good place to do so.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food at the Shoestrings Cafe was delicious. The rooms are very basic, yet clean. The location is convenient. The stay was enjoyable - a very good vibe.

The facilities should be improved. However, it has a really nice atmosphere at night.

Good location and was good to have a kitchen which everyone can use. Pool was available to use but we weren't convinced when the staff said it was ready for use.

It's a fun, safe place to stay that is accessible to town and the falls. But do not stay here if you want quiet time!

The atmosphere was great with a Saturday night every night feel. Good entertainment and great location. The room was basic but clean. We didn't have any water for one night and morning due to the water being diverted to a volleyball competition which was not helpful. The food was a problem for me as I am gluten intolerant - as it was over the Christmas holidays there was a basic menu in place that all contained gluten but I was told that normally the menu is very good
