    Very nice hostel with a great atmosphere, fab staff and amenities / activities. Nothing was too much for them. Room was very clean and modern and food and drinks was great and reasonably priced. The manager was fantastic and did a great job getting everyone involved. Great place to meet other travellers without being a huge party vibe. Would 100% stay again / recommend

    The property is an eco property which means there often isn’t much electric (also at times to do with general power cuts in Zambia) you were unable to use a hairdryer or straighteners in your room which was a little annoying as we had paid for a private bathroom yet still had to use public bathrooms to do these things.

    The Pool, the food, the location

    Our room was cramped and had no air con. Next time we would stay in group hostel room with more space and aircon.

    Great layout and super friendly and helpful staff

    The water in the showers for the shared bathrooms was either cold or piping hot. It was almost impossible to get a consistent temperature. Other then that everything else was great.

    Eco conscious - solar panels, etc meaning hot showers always available when when there electricity cuts. Great food and very reasonably priced - lots of veggie and vegan food available. Free water refills Lots of thoughtful touches Nice towels Staff were fantastic. Lovely pool and bar area I went with my 7 year old son and he loved it too.

    Loved all of it.
