Overall, very good. The staff was helpful and the hostel was very relaxed and peaceful. The man in charge is happy to arrange anything needed. Only downside is that you will need to get a taxi to the centre / Falls. It will cost $5.

We really liked this place, the staff is friendly, the garden is very pretty, the bathroom are very clean. We are one night the barbecue they offered which was good and there was a also a show of traditional dancers which was really great. 10 minutes away from the town, easy walkable. However I do not recommend the transfer service from the airport, we waited for it 2 hours (!) because of some sort of mis understanding and finally took a cab which was the same price as the transfer

The hostel was clean and nicely laid out. It was a bit far away from the rest of the city - maybe a 15 min walk which you can't do at night. The atmosphere was backpacker with some more stuck up backpackers but also a couple of nice people. Staff was ok but white staff was really rude. Plus when we asked how much a taxi to Livingston - so just behind the border - would be, nobody had a clue what's going on just 5km away.

The staff was very friendly and helpful with all the sight seeing we wanted to do. We felt at home and would recommend it and stay there again. We all had a great time!

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.
