Great backpackers in Lusaka
We stayed at Livingstone Backpackers for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time there. The property is beautiful and well-maintained, including a lovely pool. The staff were also very helpful in booking activities, and quickly and efficiently responded when our shower flooded. It's a short walking distance from many restaurants in Livingstone, including Olga's, Ocean Basket, and the Shoprite complex if you need to pick up groceries. Free breakfast was also included with our double room! Our only suggestion would be to include safety equipment with the climbing wall (i.e. ropes or at least a crash pad) - I've spent a lot of time in climbing gyms before, but didn't feel comfortable climbing here as the wall was too high to climb without a crash pad or ropes. Our room was also full of mosquitos and the mosquito net was a bit too small to fully cover our bed. Overall we still had a great stay and would recommend staying here.

Nice location and helpful staff
Nice and quiet location. Got a lot of travellers and really awesome vibe. Bar and kitchen available. Although the room is not really spacious. However, staffs are all very friendly and helpful. Wifi's not really speedy though.

굉장히 청결했음. 투어사들과 네트워크가 잘 이뤄지고 있었기 때문에 다양한 액티비티를 즐길 수 있었음. 다만 정전의 시간이 길어 힘들었음. 대략 16-24시까지 정전
