A relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Very friendly and hospitable staff who were able to arrange all my activities and offer enjoyable food at the braai. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

Very nice stay!!!


We appreciate the welcome, insight, and guidance for our stay in Victoria Falls and Zimbabwe by the owners and staff at Backpackers. They provided services and a home base for us to see the falls and community through our time there. They also helped organize transportation to and from their location. The Backpackers setting also fostered conversation with travelers and hosts alike, making dialogue and sharing possible on site with persons from countries near and far.

The hostel is excellent. Marina is an excellent hostess and is always ready to assist in whatever way possible (tips of what to do in town, organizing sightseeing tours and all possible support to make your stay more enjoyable).


Breakfast and reception should be more punctual and keep the schedule. The have to start at 7:00 am as it is stated in the hostel with no delay.

Very thin mattresses in our en-suite room made sleeping very uncomfortable. Noise from guests after ten at night and loud talking between 3.30 and 5.00 in the morning also disturbed sleep. Therefore it was overall a poor stay.
