    Great location and a great value. Staff was fine but never made a great connection to them. Beds comfortable and clean. Our flight was delayed making us arrive a day later.... I contacted the backpackers directly and they said it wasn't any problem to alter dates.

    I always enjoy staying at Lusaka Backpackers (ex-Cha Cha Cha Backpackers). I was impressed by the mosquito nets in the 8 bed dorm - very substantial and covered entire bunk. In my later stay I was in the 6 bed dorm which had tiny mosquito nets, however the staff explained they were in the process of doing up the mosquito nets in all the rooms. The pool was pleasant although the pool floor could do with a sweep/clean in places. The food was good.

    Disappointed on arrival to find someone else had checked in to our room and we were offered a twin room instead of a double room. We declined this and were given the original room. Unfortunately the bathroom smelled really bad and the bedsheets and towels had stains on them. The shower made the floor soaking wet and it became a health and safety risk. Overall we were very disappointed at paying €55 for this room for one night when Palmwood Lodge is the same price. Wouldn't recommend here at all.
