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.

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

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??

Loved the atmosphere of the place; however, the staff seemed pretty overwhelmed and disorganized. My boyfriend and I checked in mid day Thursday and had already unpacked, then late at night they made us move to another room on the other side of the hostel in order to accommodate another guest request that checked in late. I thought this was very unprofessional and inconvenient for us. But other than that the stay was good.

Was here with a friend for just over a week. Great locations next to main street with bars and restaurants, music can be loud if you're a light sleeper. Great, friendly staff who are helpful with booking activities/organising onward journey/entertaining you. Facilities are vibrant and cosy with plenty of space to lounge around the pool and a bar. Atmosphere varies depends on day of week. Beds could be more comfortable but private double has lots of shelving space. Overall would recommend.

The high ratings don't tell the whole story. Do not stay here if you want a good night's sleep. Uncomfortable bunk beds that shake at the slightest movement, cramped 4-bed dorm, and music played outside til late. DO stay here if socializing is your priority. The grounds are very pleasant and inviting. Very slow wifi, but I've heard that's everywhere in Livingstone. Breakfast costs extra. Not a bad place to stay, but not as great as the ratings suggest. PS: Book Livingstone Island ASAP!
