Unfortunately we had a really bad experience here. We were booked in for a week but on arrival were told that we were being moved to another hostel as they had double booked us. We had originally booked an en suite room but were moved to a room with a shared bathroom but we were offered free breakfast to make up for this. The hostel we were moved to was Natwange Backpackers and this was a lot nicer than John's place. We were told we could stay here for the duration of our stay if we chose to do so, so that we weren't chopping and changing but then just as we were waiting for a taxi for our day out the following day we were told we had to clear the room as we were being moved again that evening. This was despite us checking the night before that we were okay to stay. We were moved to John's place again and were offered a dorm style room with no bathroom despite booking and paying for an en suite room. We had a 10 minute discussion with the woman ringing the owner before it was agreed we could have an en suite room. Due to our experience and the poor state of John's place we decided to cut our stay short and head up to Livingstone earlier than planned and are so glad we did!
