    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.

    Average accomodation near east park mall

    It was close to East Park but was highly priced for a small room with a shared bathroom. Similar room near Levy Mall for 25-50% cheaper price. Outside is being renovated and smelled like fertilizer. Also neighbor has barking dog. Breakfast was eggs with toast. Host was nice.
