8/10 Very good

A lovely environment. Warm, friendly and caring workers. Reasonable room rate. Poor internet connection in my room and no tv for 3 weeks. Monotonous breakfast. Same thing everyday.

Like during my last visit, this was a great space for a peaceful weekend retreat with friendly guests and service as well as clean rooms with bug nets and pools for when the sun got too warm !

Exceptional accommodations
Thank you for a delightful experience! The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, even going out of their way to make sure I was accommodated when a flight was canceled. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, with plenty of opportunities to meet fellow travelers. I would definitely stay here again.

Short stay in Lusaka
We only stayed here for one night, but the property was spacious and well-decorated. The hostel is also well-located close to Arcades and Manda Hill shopping centers. The only issue was that the water pressure was a bit low when we were there, and the bathroom could have been cleaner.
