Lusaka, Zambia
Reviewed 23 April 2017

A conveniently situated and priced place to stay in Livingstone. Friendly and helpful staff. The pool is not very clean, and the restaurant service is quite poor, but luckily there are shops and restaurants nearby, and also very good self-catering facilities.

I stayed there for 5 days, didnt use the kitchen but had a private suite. The location is good, the room was clean. The garden and the pool were very convenient to spend the afternoon. The staff was very helpful.

I enjoyed stay at fawlty tower a lot. Facility was very good, cozy, and modernic. Staff was also kind except Miriam. I dont know what her problem was. She was always unfriendly and frustrated to us. I tried to be polite and friendly and I really dont know why she didnt smile at all. Anyway it was very good place.

I recommend this hostel for short stay in Livingstone. Great location, nice massage, small rooms and lovely swimming pool. My family and I enjoy a lot. We love the freedom of making our own breakkie and leisuring by the pool. Lot of restaurants around.

We had a great couple of days in this lodge with the nice pool. The private rooms are clean, good beds and airco. The breakfast is nice (not included) and the trips we took from there were very good organised. Free wifi (not in your room) and pancakes. Lots of young people around.

This place is so quaint and unique. There are multiple room options. There is a pool, restaurant, bar, grill, self service kitchen, and fire pits. The hostel is RIGHT. Next to cafe Zambezi (yum) and a shop rite and a few other restaurants. It's only a few blocks from the market as well. I didn't have any issues with management....
