Shoestrings Backpackers

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The Shoestrings Backpackers is only a short 2 minute walk from the centre of town and very safe. It is a friendly, lively and fun hostel with a lot of character.

The Shoestrings Backpackers is only a short 2 minute walk from the centre of town and very safe. We have a bar, restaurant, ,swimming pool, self catering facilities, 24 hour security, internet cafe and plenty of people around for single travelers to mix with. All our doubles and twin rooms are en-suite and include linen.

We also cater for those who enjoy camping - as long as you provide your own tents and bedding. There are lawns at the front and back of the building for you to pitch your tents on. We also have ablution blocks near the camping areas.

The friendly staff are able to arrange pick-ups/drop offs to and from the airport, sort out all your activities in and around the falls, and assist you with any onward travels that you might be thinking of making!

All activities and accommodation are quoted in US$ and unfortunately very few places have to capability for credit or debit cards so we do advise you to bring enough cash or travelers cheques with you for the duration of your stay.

Any booking made before the 28th February 2009 will be charged at the previous prices.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Unfortunately I found it very noisy. Even though I booked a single room, I had a tent full of people right at my door. The room was very hot as the fan did not go very fast at all. There were only bedside lights for light making it difficult to read. Very disappointed in comparison to other hostels I have stayed at.
