I first arrived at Fatimas and Pariango as they are the most publicised posts. Without badmouthing them, they are nothing like Sundance! Anna makes you feel like you are at home. Was good to have a someone give me the run down on the town and pointers on how to save a buck. No offence to the locals either, but the locals like ripping you off, so beware.

The accommodation in comparable to a European style hostel.. very premium fittings and amenities. Very impressed and cheap. I've tried them all... and without going into too much detail Sundance Hostel is the best by a long shot. Safe, Clean, Everything works...and most importantly won't get ripped off or cheated out of your precious money! :) Thanks Anna

Our days at Sundance we’re just perfect! We extended everyday and ended up being there for approx. one week. The staff is absolutely friendly and we had so much fun in the hostel and the whole little town. We were all like a family. We really love it and highly recommend staying at Sundance. We will come back, if we will be in Mozambique again.

The staff are lovely, rooms are clean, location is perfect and the atmosphere is great. The hostel itself feels like home and has a kitchen which guests are free to use, the showers have hot water and good pressure and the WiFi is super fast. If you want to go diving in tofu you can get 25% off with Peri peri divers if you are staying at sundance. The hostel also runs a day trip to ‘pig island’ which I really enjoyed.

I spent 3 weeks in this lovely hostel! Recommended by a friend who stumbled across it and how happy i am that i didn't stay anywhere else :D My 3 weeks at Sundance made a huge difference to my whole Tofo experience. This place attracts beautiful people from all around the world and it has a chilled vibe to it and includes all guests to come together as friends and as a Sundance family. Exactly what I look for when i look for hostels. Hostels that are including, warm and welcoming to all people checking in :) Thanks to Charlotte & Charlie for creating a space in Tofo that is warm, fun, chilled and comfortable to wake up and hang out in! I highly recommend staying at Sundance hostel in Tofo!

A friend and I stayed at the hostel for almost 2 weeks and it was the best decision we could have made!

The hostel is very well located (less than 200 mts from the beach) and the staff is super friendly. From Veronica, Armando and the rest of the guys will make your stay at rhe hostel unforgettable.

Would recommend it to everyone!

Sundance is incredible and is run by some of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. I had to stay there at very short notice and Charlotte was incredible with helping me out and accommodating me; it’s probably the nicest hostel I’ve ever been in, and it’s well worth a stay. Such a lovely little place in the centre of town and perfect for anyone and everyone looking to spend time in Tofo

This was my favourite hostel in Southern Africa (bold statement but true). Firstly the staff are extremely helpful with information and advice and literally become your friends, both Charlotte and Charlie who own the hostel and the locals (Veronica, Ernesto and Armando) they employ to manage it. They know what is going on each day/evening and will get everyone together to head out for dinner, drinks or whatever is on that night, which for solo backpackers is great and means you meet ppl easily. Secondly, the hostel is maintained to an excellent standard with aircon in the dorms, electric sockets for each bed, lockers, hot showers, kitchen to cook in, cleaning done daily, beer fridge, social areas inside and out, hammocks in the garden etc etc. These guys know what backpackers need! Lastly, the location and town are incredible. It’s a 1 minute walk to the beach and likewise to the market where you can get delicious food, groceries, a beer...or five and party in the evening. I was meant to stay a week and ended up extending for longer, as did nearly everyone I met there! Ok raving review over but I just really loved the place ha!

After travelling around southern Africa for 6 weeks, this Hostel was a bliss. Clean rooms with AC for a very reasonable price, but mostly an overall welcoming vibe, super friendly staff and everything you can wish for, to spend some awesome days in Tofo. Thank you so much, guys!

The staff were so helpful, really appreciated the tour around Tofo and great suggestions on local spots to eat. Even went as far as lending us their laptop and mobile to help us try to get festival tickets!! The hostel was in really good condition, with our rooms being cleaned frequently each day and had some great outings with the people we met in the hostel.

The hostel is great and would definitely stay again, we were going to treat ourselves to a bungalows on the beach for at least a couple of nights but this place was so nice we just ended up staying here for the entire 10 days.

The hostel got my thumbs up, because it did the 3 things I look for really well;

1. The location is very central, right in the middle of town.

2. The atmosphere is warm, you can easily meet other travellers and Charlotte and Charlie are super helpful and the staff are nice and will go out of their way to make you feel at home.

3. The place is super clean, there is air con in rooms and the dorm beds are fine.
