The staff are super friendly, the place is clean, and the hostel is a great place to chill. Victoria Falls is not too far and it is possible to rent a bike for 10 dollars and ride it there. In addition, they have a great range of activities to offer to travelers.

This was my favorite hostel in the Vic Falls area. They were great at organizing activities for guests, and have a fun scene at the hostel itself. Pool, bar, climbing wall - hard to beat that. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, and the town around the hostel made it easy to get anything I needed.

Short stay but really helpful and friendly staff. Great convenience that they provided airport pick up and offered a later checkout since it was a low season. Cosy, clean and nice. Highly recommended!

Because our son stayed at Livingstone backpackers as a medical volunteer for three months in 2013 (october-december) we wanted to visit there also. We visited with our son and daughter. And combined it with a trip to South Africa. In a week time we did almost all possible activities; helped by the very friendly and hospitable staff. We were there...

It's a safe and convenient place for you when you are in Victoria falls for activities. As name suggests it is to give you good deals for sight seeing and better relaxed evenings. It has owned bar and kitchen, it's useful though it's for limited time because there are many other pubs in around vicinity. Staff is very cooperative, well...
