    Staff is awesome helpful and assist you on all the possible ways I didn't tell any of the issues I had coz I was only staying there for one night

    Well couple of things My bed had someone's hair and pubic hair under the covers that was disgusting The shower was bad in both bathrooms one was sprinkling water around the body to the walls and the other had water coming out like an old tap from center with low pressure. My wife was having a shower they cut off the water in the mid shower my wife has to wash her soap off with a bottle of water. I have stayed in better hostals than this so I see these things can be improved

    The staffs are friendly with free airport service. And the garden is also nice!

    Wifi is weak and slow and the dorm is very cosy.

    Great location, just next to the centre of town, with friendly staff. Activities can be arranged easily through them, although you have to check if price for the (same) activity is best in town. We did do Chobe day tour through them, but not the Zambezi rafting or helicopter flight. The latter ones could be done cheaper through other organisations.

    6 bed dorm is pretty small for 6 people with luggage. Lots of mosquitoes around the place.
