I'm afraid that our experience of Fatima's wasn't great. Poor service, no internet- when asked about it, we only got a shrug for an answer. The mosquito nets on the bottom bunk literally rested on top of you, so there was no protection from mosquitoes and meant a very uncomfortable night of sleep. we also were never told that when...

The hostel is a very nice building which has lots of opportunities, that's it for the PRO's. Now the CON's... The location is quite far away from the city center, it'll take you half an hour walk to get there. Even though it's no problem to walk, the staff will always advise you to take a taxi... The first (double)... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights with friends. The service is good, and the rooms are clean (they have dorms, but we stayed in a room). The atmosphere was good, and was easy to get to know the other guests.

I can't begin to say anything nice about this place! It's over priced, the staff is rude, the beds sink in and are old and in dire need of replacement, the showers are clogged and u literally stand in ankle deep water while showering, the wifi sucks and only cut in from 7pm-5am, but never works,I asked the staff to...

Don't see why there are so many bad reviews, in my experience as hostels go this one is alright. Expensive for what it is but I found that more common in Maputo. Staff were friendly to me and theres a huge social bar area.

I've definitely stayed in nicer hostels for the price. Te 'shuttle' they advertise to Tofo is not a shuttle but a local bus that you pay extra for in order for them to pick you up. Mosquito nets are terribly placed. Staff were helpful and it is in a good location and a good place to meet people

Hefty price paid for a large group. After tens of phonecalls, emails and eventually a visit to confirm booking we arrived with our large group of 21 and nobody knew anything. The phone and cell numbers listed on their website never get answered. We booked to have breakfast we were slapped with bread on plastic bags no tableware, slapdash eggs... More

Stayed here one night before my departure from Mozambique. My room was tiny. No towel provided. The sheets/pillowcases smelled mouldy. The bathroom was also damp and mouldy. The mosquito net was full of holes and therefore useless. I got the Fatima's shuttle from Tofo which was supposed to take us all the way to Fatima's, Maputo but the bus driver... More

It's perfectly natural when travelling to a city/country for the first time to pick a hotel that offers pick-up from airport. But these guys didn't pick up. They weren't there, waiting, as they had assured us. Later we heard from other guests who had the same experience. When we called the hotel, they said they had no record of our... More

I stayed at Fatima's Place twice, on my first and last night in Mozambique. There are several positives: they will arrange a pick-up from the airport, and also the bus to/from Tofo. The location is ok - not great, not terrible. There are taxi drivers outside if you want one, and one or two local places to eat or buy... More
