Nothing there works well enough to be anything but irritating. Doors don't close, showers don't work. Feels as if no one there is interested in getting things right.

Didn’t realize this was basically a hut with straw roof. I guess it’s hard to find another alternative unless it is a more expensive hotel but at night mosquitoes would come into the room, there is a mosquito net which is much needed with the amount of mosquitoes that come in but even a toad was inside our bathroom at one point. The staff was nice and there seems to be decent facilities around the hostel, just could be the fact of the general location. Paid WiFi but really fast internet.

Vic Falls Backpackers is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at for it's location, atmosphere and overall grounds of the place. As Vic Falls as a town is not the most cosy to chill in, the hostel offers a warm and inviting place for guests to relax in between activities, including a pool. Showers were warm (which is always a bonus at hostels) and the staff were so helpful with trip planning. A very outdoorsy feel with lots of friendly animals roaming around but safely secured from the outside.

The staff at the hostel really made this a good choice! They are helpful and knowledge! The facility offers cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner options for reasonable prices as well as fridge and kitchen for self catering. The 12 bed dorm is in an open loft with single beds, each with its own mosquito net. Also available are spa and massage treatments, as well as a small curio shop with crafts made locally. Location is a bit out of town so plan for 15 min walk or $3-5 taxi ride each way.

Vic Falls Backpackers was by far the best hostel my bf and I have ever been to! The atmosphere is like paradise! You enter with a cool fish spa to clean your feet, hammocks, cool chairs, a giant chess board game, and a nice clean pool. Bug nets are in every room. There is very little hot water so don't expect much. You have to pay cash for the hostel so make sure you have enough. There is no money in the atms anywhere. Internet is 3$ per day. Staff are not the friendliest. Meet cool people!

Nice location, really loved the atmosphere (Doofus fish pool, hammocks, a pool, swings, ...). The wifi is pretty bad considering you have to pay a ridiculous fee of 3$ per day (!) and person (!!).
