  • Great atmosphere (there was a party on Friday night and an even bigger one with a live band on Saturday) with a good bar. Staff are friendly and helpful, including the at the attached travel shop. Biggest drawback is that the washrooms are not very good and are arranged in a funny manner. Also, wifi is pricey: US$1 for 45 minutes. Good location, close to a supermarket and an easy walk to the Falls. It's be nice to have lockers in the rooms. Overall a very good place to stay.

  • Shoestrings is one of the best places to stay in Vic Falls, giving value for money, as in Vic Falls EVERYTHING is expensive. Although, WiFi is not free and one night there were no available tokens to buy WiFi time. The place is quite noisy. Other than that, everything was ok.
