Is this really a HI hostel? A guy took me to a room and said he'd be right back with a menu as I'd need to pre-order dinner. I waited. The TV was broken. I waited more and went to find him. The place was deserted. Reception was unmanned. Depressing. I got online and booked another hotel in the city. An hour later, the receptionist returned, he called a friend to take me back to airport (US$20 for the 10 minute ride). (This form REQUIRES picking four badges to describe the hotel, none do.)

I stayed here 3 nights, each night passing through between Vic Falls and Cape Town, and then back home. The first time was okay. The second time the internet wasn't working in the main building. The next time a week later, the internet wasn't working at all. They told me that they ran out of allowed data use. However, the next day it worked momentarily, but then not after that. The manager was nice enough to let me use his phone wifi, but don't come with high expectations of a working wifi.
