I absolutely loved this Hostel in Victoria Falls. The accomodations were quaint and creative with swings, a very small pool, a card table, and a fire pit. YOu can really do anything (touristy) from this place. In fact, we did a helicoptor ride (recommend), a bungee jump (super recommend) and a dinner cruise (do NOT recommend - snoozer and not really worth the money). We negotiated a little bit because we got a bit better deals in town but they were accomodating and we were pleased with what we paid. Their full kitchen isnt really a full kitchen but it works. Hot showers are always great after a soaking day at the Falls! The owners are very welcoming and the male owner is a bit aggressive talking about politics of Zimbabwe and addressing his staff a little awkwardly.
It was very very inexpensive. They prefer cash (american dollars) and in fact, insist, BUT if you cant make it to the ATM, they made exceptions. It is just under a 2 KM to town so very easy walk! Linda (the kitchen cook) is FANTASTIC and stop at the free Vulture feeding at the Victoria Falls Lodge (free is always good right??) The great thing about places like this is the ability to interact with other travellers who travel similarly. The other hostel is more of a party place so its up to you on what works best for how you like to travel.
