    Livingstone backpackers had such a great vibe. The staff was amazing and it was located in a great area of the city. A quick taxi ride from Victoria Falls, and walking distance from some great restaurants and markets. We would definitely choose to stay here again

    We really enjoyed our stay here. It was low season, so it was more calm but they still held a movie night which I enjoyed. The pool was clean. The staff were exceptionally friendly. The only downsides were that the hot tub which was advertised no longer exists and the security locker was broken. Otherwise, we were happy campers...well, hostelers? :)

    Very cool hostel, super chill, friendly and helpful staff, and cheap beer :) Nice to have a pool as it was soo hot on our visit. Kitchen area to cook your own meals, grocery store and tasty restaurants within walking distance. Upper level room with only a fan was almost unbearable at night. Loud music from a couple bars just across the road can be heard til late at night, but was fun to check them out. Would stay here again.

    Washrooms need to be cleaner and showers as well. There is hot water in some washrooms opposite the office area; however, in the far side 2-storey rooms area, only cold water is available. Should the prices in rooms 12-23 and more be lower than in the 1-10 rooms? Indeed, they should be cheaper. The kitchen self-cook possibilities are limited, no storage for guests to place and secure their goods, no proper cutlery, pots; dishtowels are not available at all!! Cleaning utensils in cold water??
