Left 2 days early because of massive amounts of mosquitos in the room; mosquito nets completely broken, no window shields; lack of cleanlyness as well; beds very short, of you are over 1,80 m you won't fit into it....had to 'sleep' next to the watchman, who watched movies all night; so no sleep at all. For 60 US Dollars per Night - inaceptable! (Although staff was nice) We found a much better Place after all though.

Great service and friendly staff. More chilled out and relaxing compared to other backpacker hostels. Clean and cosy rooms and Victoria Falls town about a 20-25 minute walk away or $3-5 in a taxi. Victoria Falls national park also only a short taxi ride away. Very pleasant stay and would suit any age of traveller. Thank you very much!! :)

The rooms were too hot to sleep in, filled with mosquitos and crammed full of beds. Had to taxis to get anywhere in town, and the atmosphere is a bit. ... weird. Yes it is very quiet and relaxing, that is a definite plus. However another downside was irregular food service hours, and the need to order dinner hours in advance. Just things to keep in mind before booking.

- Hostel is far from city, 30-45 min walk - Staff is present until 7pm, if there's emergencies, good luck - Re: Security - They have large lockers but 6 for the entire hostel, the large rooms, have one key for everyone, small lockers avail - Dorm rooms have mosquitos (understandably) however no fans just nets, super hot in rooms - Local recommendations were poor and not geared towards 'local experience' - don't go to Mama Africa - Hostel down the road open for drinks+food in the evening

We stayed at Victoria Falls backpackers for 3 weeks. It was wonderful. A huge shout out to the staff, Adrian, Jay, Blessing, Michelle, Richard , the ladies who did the cleaning, forgive me I cannot remember names and Tracy the owner. They are absolutely fantastic. Amazing, friendly, warm, helpful people. The rooms were great, the food Adrian cooked wonderful, the atmosphere is great, lovely to see so many young and old people coming and going, hearing about their travels, sharing experiences.

Lovely little place and a great atmosphere. Enjoyed the fish pedicure and the pool. Really good value for money and exceeded our expectations. Will definitely stay there again.

Had a lovely two week stay at VF Backpackers with my daughter. The facilities are basic but good. The bed was comfortable, althought, the mosquito net did have several holes in. J and Blessing were extremely helpful and organised our activities quickly with minimum fuss. The compound was beautiful. As a suggestion, it would improve the facilities if you put shelves up in the bathrooms so there is somewhere to put a toothbrush, toothpaste and soap. That would be my only real complaint.
