Hreat place to stay in Harare. Lovely staff, cosy atmosphere. Onr thing to mention though - prices are for USD, if you pay with bond notes, expect hivher price (e.g. dorm 14 instead 12)

Nice, quiet, tucked away hostel in safe place of Harare, yet still fairly close to the hustle and bustle of city center. Staff extremely friendly and helpful with any needs I had. Felt extremely safe the entire time, 24/7 security on compound. Very quiet environment, nice for relaxing, but does not present for socialization with other travelers. Also need new mattresses in dorm rooms, I was practically sleeping in the bed frame, otherwise I enjoyed my stay.

Nice place to stay In Harare. Only criticism is the kitchen needs some investment for self-caterers. No microwave, sharp knives, chopping boards or oven, only a couple of forks. Other than that lovely though, secure, good internet, nice seating areas and walkable into the city.

I was a bit hesitant to stay here based on the past reviews, but was happy to find the complete opposite. Staff were so accommodating and friendly! The lodge is clean and safe. My 1 night stay in the dorm was very pleasant. Would stay again!

I stayed in the dorm for 4 nights. The bunk bed was super squeaky - had trouble sleeping the first night. There are two showers to share between the entire dorm room and multiple private rooms. One morning, I waited 20 minutes to use the toilet because both showers were occupied. The lodge is in a safe neighborhood but it is a little out of the way from shops and restaurants. Overall, the dorm here is one of the cheapest lodging in Harare and that outweighed a lot of the cons for me.
