    Super friendly staff, clean and refreshing pool, everything great. Beds in the dorm were super comfy as well. Lockers are a bit worn though. Wifi really fast, place is close to a range of restaurants.

    Given the cost of many places around Vic Falls Fawlty Towers is outstanding value. I had a private room with an en-suite which was clean and perfectly OK as a base when you are spending most of your time on activities. Having the activity booking centre on sight was also ideal.

    Great location, staff exceptional. Food great, communal kitchen needs a little TLC. Beautiful gardens, spacious outdoor area. Massage- great & price too. Photos do not do this accommodation justice, more than expected. Stay 4nts, 10 would have been better. More time to see sights and relax in between. Shopping centre across road, security strict and fair prices for tours on site. Zest restaurant the best, close by. Rooms cute as, even better in deluxe for not much extra. A delight to stay.

    Lots of positives. Beautiful place, well kept, clean. Nice reception and bar. Delicious pancakes every day 3ish. Shopping mall directly opposite is very convenient. Good location - 15min walk to the bus station. I had a double en-suite room with aircon, which was small but functional. Room for improvement: definitely the mozzie nets. I was in three different rooms during my stay and each had practically useless nets. Most staff were fab but a couple could be a bit friendlier. Overall recommend.

    Very Good

    I got eaten by a million mosquitos, despite of the mosquito net. There is a disco right next to the hostal, music was pumping until 3 am and that on a Sunday. Internet was not working. I only stayed for one night and then moved out after a sleepless night. The other backpackers place is so much better (jolly backpackers)
