    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

    Livingstone Backpackers is awesome! With a great pool and lounge area, it was a cool place to hang out in the evenings. The room was a bit tight but there were only two of us in a four person room so it worked just fine. The one annoyance is that it seems to be close to a club or something that plays pretty loud music till very late at night (not their fault, but made it a bit difficult to get to sleep). They also have a delicious breakfast for very cheap! Highly recommend.

    Would Defo recommend!! Staff very helpful in organising day trips, takes all the stress out of activities. Rooms were as good as we saw on our travels, good showers (with hot water), and a bar on site. Very chilled and safe atmosphere with lots of travellers from all over the world!

    It's such a lovely place. The room was pretty and super clean. The whole pool area is cozy, clean and beautiful. The staff is incredible, they tried everything to help us with our plans and wishes, were always nice and friendly. We really loved it there and stayed two more nights than planned. Nothing to complain about in this place.

    My only real complaint is that a group of 6-8 people in their mid-30's decided to sleep outside on the pallets instead of their rooms. To each their own, normally, but they were disrespectfully loud til about 4 every night, then stayed there til midmorning, meaning no one else could utilize the space. Otherwise, the place was nice. Great pool, tasty food, staff that's great at coordinating activities. Guests traveled in groups, so not ideal for a solo, but probably best you can get

    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.

    I could see this place being a decent party hostel during peak season. Remember your mossie spray Room only had one oddly shaped locker making security difficult when sharing. Complex is secur/safe. Close to supermarket (5min walk) but kitchen is really limited. Guess this pushes you toward purchasing food in house. Which admittadly reasonably priced and of good quality. Shower temp is a crap shoot, as is the bar having change when you buy a drink. Staff, particularly security lads, were awesome
