Top choice hostel in Victoria Falls (town)
Image by Hostelworld

One of the best budget choices in town, this long-standing backpackers received a much-needed revamp when the original owners returned. The eclectic mix of rooms are scattered among the well-tended garden property full of quirky touches. Other notable features are its bar, small inviting pool, games room and TV lounge, plus self-catering kitchen, massage and fish spa.

Dorms comprise anything from three to 12 beds, and there's a lot dedicated to self-driver campers. It's at a residential address away from the centre of town.
