Had a wonderful time staying at Victoria Falls Hostel, the rooms & toilets were clean, the staff was friendly & helpful. Great location, an easy 25 minute walk or taxi ride to the nearest grocery. Pool & facilities were very nice. Ms. Blessings, the front desk lady was knowledgeable & kind. Great value for your money. Would definitely return and I highly recommend this hostel to people of all ages.

Thé room we stayed in was basic. The front door didn’t close properly and the small fan in the room could only be turned on and off- no rotation or increase of speed. The padlock to lock the front door was difficult to close. No wi fi reception apart from near the reception area. The accommodation is a good 20 minutes walk from the town. You can catch taxi for US$5. To get access to drinking water you need to pay $5 to get a fob to water fountain around town. Everything is in cash here.
