    "Great place -would recommend."
    This is a great hostel - it was the first time we'd stayed in a hostel - we definitely come into the older age bracket and didn't feel out of place at all. Our son booked us a twin room (beds very clean and comfortable) whilst he stayed in a dorm (he'd stayed there before). Shower and toilets were clean and plenty of hot water - food was excellent and at a good price. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We booked a 2 day safari to Chobe through Jollyboys and their organisation was fantastic with completely smooth drop off and pick ups at Zambia/Botswana border with no problem us storing our luggage at Jollyboys until our return. Would not hesitate to stay there again if opportunity arose. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/OwnerResponse-g298089-d949806-Jollyboys_International_Backpackers-Livingstone_Southern_Province.html#/?_k=mgklva

    "Topadresse auch für Paare"
    Tolles Backpackerhostel! Wir hatten als Paar eine eigene Hütte für uns mit shared bathroom. Wenn man nicht überlaufen Luxus erwartet, ist das die richtige Adresse. Besonders hervorzuheben ist das Umweltbewusstsein des Hostels - Müll wird getrennt und verwertet, solarpanelle erzeugen Strom und das Hostel unterstützt lokale Gruppen. Die Hütten haben alle Moskitonetze, werden nur im Winter recht kalt, da oben offen sind. Es gibt eine Selbstversorgerküche aber auch eine gute Bar mit Essen. Alle Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett und gerade bei Trips gibt es eine top Auswahl und Angebote. Alles in allem: wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!!! https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g298089-d949806-r589261046-Jollyboys_International_Backpackers-Livingstone_Southern_Province.html
