  • Good and cheap party-hostel. Hostel is in walking distance to supermarket, city centre and the victoria falls. Staff is friendly and helpfull. 4-Bed dorms are clean and quite. Kitchen is reasonable. In the bar you can party with the locals. No own drinks permited, but prices for beers at the bar are ok. Internet and Wifi is not free, but a SIM card with data is cheap in ZIM. They don't accept the online downpayment if you booked on You have to pay the full amount on checkin.

  • There aren't many options in Victoria Falls. Not the cleanest place but as long as you aren't expecting a five star hotel it isn't that bad. Location is great you can walk to the falls and is close to shops and restaurants.
