    I really enjoyed the hospitality and cleanliness of Choice. The wifi was great and all in all nothing to complain about. I'd recommend this for people travelling backpack style anytime!

    A beautiful property with good size rooms and use of the full property. A short taxi drive from the bus station . The owner was very helpful in organizing accomodation at our next few stops! A home away from home.

    Great place to stay, lovely staff and well kept place. It is a bit outside of city center, but I believe best budget option

    Great place in Bulawayo. Is not near the city centre but there’s not much there anyway. The people running it were very helpful and definitely would stay again if back in Bulawayo.

    Location isn't possible to walk to from city centre but a taxi for $4 will get you there, staff, atmosphere, cleanliness and facilities were all really good, we felt very welcome and had a great evening chatting with the few other guests. Felt a lot more like a guesthouse than a hostel, private room was clean and comfortable overall, although mattress was very very soft so you kind of fell into the middle. fun experience and I'd recommend as there's very few hostels In Bulawayo

    The staff is very nice and attentive, and the hostel has a beautiful garden. The atmosphere in the house itself can be improved.

    I visited Bulawayo in the low season and it felt like a pit stop rather than a place to meet new people and explore. The hostel itself is lovely and the staff are fantastic. It’s very homely and a wonderful place to relax - just not much else!

    Lovely house located about a 30 minute walk from city centre. Offers great place to relax in green surrounds with only the sounds of birds chirping. The rooms are huge, we had the one with private bath. Would have rated higher if there was a faster cooking stove, a lock on the room doors, a mosquito net, and a shower curtain. Internet was fast and reliable for 2 days, but on day 3 was unavailable all day for some reason.

    Very Good

    Dorm beds are in a little annex attached to the house also not that secure, but the mattresses (or at least mine) could do with a rotation as was very slanted. Walking distance Natural History Museum and the Kombi / Local bus stop (~2km), supermarkets and town a little further, but train station or Train Museum is 10RTGS taxi. Very safe area and beautiful yard would be good for camping. The Kitchen is useable but the one bathroom tended to get a little busy in the mornings. Wifi was good.
