My boyfriend and I stayed at the hostel for around 2 weeks and had a great time! Kim (and the rest of the staff) is super nice, and told us a lot of times that the most important thing was for us to have fun. Unfortunately, we didn't have a Zambian business visa, so there were things that we weren't able to do, like work behind the bar. Our work was really simple and not very time consuming at all: taking instagram pictures, decorating chalk boards in the morning and making sure the guests had a good time. It was a great experience and we are so grateful! Thank you to everyone at the hostel :)

At the hostel we were responsible for taking photos and videos for there social media pages. This experience enabled us to meet people from so many different walks of life including those local to Livingstone. Kim, our host, was so supportive and encouraged us to engage with the environment around us even though we were communicating virtually. She was always quick to respond to our messages and helped us whenever we asked. The whole staff of the hostel was very welcoming and friendly especially the reception staff. Would definitely recommend the hostel to other Worldpackers!

Heart broken . At first I found bestie and family , and desirable touristic activities . I gave my whole ! as always… Then, all of a sudden , out of the blue - the mood changed . I was a party promoter. Despite me providing free drinks, snacks, activities and all best of vibration - One sunny morning - boss decided was not proper anymore ?! No respect for some curtesy of knowing what was misunderstood by me . Was kicked out ! without even having the courage to look into my eyes while explaining kindly the wrongs of my doings. I was dammed by a group , and never got to know the reason .

We are sorry that this didn't work out for both of us - however, after the third time of needing to discuss your behaviour, we felt like things just weren't changing and we had too many complaints.



Livingstone and Zambia as a country is such an amazing place go to !! The experience with the hostel was unique and I would do it all over again. It was so much fun. You can meet a lot of locals, international travelers, make so many activities around Livingstone and have a nice stay at an really good Hostel. The staff is amazing and they become like a small family after one month! Will visit one day again for sure 😍 Can recommend for 100%
