    All the staff were so friendly and accommodating.Food was good and nice touch having a kitchen area and BBQ to make your own food. Bar was fully stocked and reasonably priced. Swimming pool was clean. Lots of nice areas to chill outside. Lots of information about activities which was nice. Beds were comfy and rooms were clean, but a little small. But this can't exactly be changed and it's unlikely people visit Livingstone and sit inside the rooms all day anyway so it's not really an issue.Thanks

    Loved this hostel, great people, chilled atmosphere and easy access to all the attractions. The only thing I didn’t like was the poster hanging in reception supporting elephant rides and leopard walks. Otherwise great hostel.

    This is a great place to stay and the pool is amazing! Friendly, welcoming staff :) I was sick so I didn't get to take full advantage of what this hostel had to offer, but this is exactly what a great backpackers should be- not fancy but well-run with a good vibe and clean. Lots of mosquitos! Could be a good idea to put an insect screen on the windows of the room so that you can still keep the window open in this heat. Pillows are also due for a replacement :)

    Great Atmosphere, good food, courteous and helpful staff. They have an area where they have a table, you can play Beer pong and all other games. They arranged for a Bonfire too. One area of complaint for me is there​ were no individual charging points. In a 4 bed dorm which I had taken there were only 2 charging points. There were no lockers in the room. But it's a pretty safe place. So those were the only things that caused inconvenience. Apart from that I loved the place.

    Very helpful staff with navigation/maps. Nice pool area (though the pool is quite cold) with lots of seating and beautiful murals everywhere. Comfortable seating with pillows. Kitchen serves basic meals, though unfortunately closes a bit early around 6:30pm (18:30). Warm showers, bunnies and kitties, climbing wall, short walk to markets, shops, atm's. When we were there it was a bit lonely, not many other tourists to connect with, or explore the town.

    The location is great since it is in town and therefore it is easy to get taxis. Cleanliness generally is fine, but for the duration of my stay, staff never came to clean the female dorm I was in or even just to empty the bin.

    The place was really nice and looked really cool! But it was so noisy. Needed an early night but other guests were up all night and super loud as the rooms are right near the pool and social area so everything can be heard. Also a problem with the power, each night I was there the power was out all night which meant no fans which made it very hard to sleep through the hot weather. The staff were super friendly and helpful in organising activities which was the highlight of this place.
