Our stay at Fatima's started with a slight disappointment - no shuttle, which the place actually advertises, available, adding another 300 Mts taxi fare to the room price - which is not overly cheap, at that. Once you get there, the reception staff is very helpful and friendly. Everybody speaks English, so no need to worry in case your Portuguese... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a world challenge expedition and it was just what we needed, open social areas for big groups and large dorms; also a basic kitchen area where we could self cater and the staff were really friendly and helpful which was great since it was our first time in Mozambique!

We were driving from Kruger to Maputo. Never seen such an ugly capital as that one. When we arrived at Fatima's, I was happy the gate closed and we were save. Showering is horrible and beds are not that good. But nice vibe there! Friendly people and free WIFI.

We stayed one night at Fatima's after not finding any accommodation in the city we decided to make a stop at Fatima's. It was a bit expensive and cost 2,500 mzn for a private room with a bathroom, but the hot water did not work which was very disappointing! Neither did the WIFI. They did have secure parking which was... More

We stayed at fatimas for two nights in a 12 bed dorm. On arrival the staff weren't very friendly and only one staff member was friendly and helpful for our stay, which wad mire suprising as theyre really helpful over email when prebooking and send out info for onward travel and visa. The place is huge but very basic, tiny... More

We stayed there some nights, and found it just ok. Not specially good, not specially bad. Though my friend got something that looked like bed bugs after the first night. She changed her bed, and didn´t notice anything after that. The location is not that good, a bit far to walk to the center, but with a taxi it would... More

Fatima's Backpackers in Maputo is unfortunately the worst backpackers I've come across in all of Southern Africa. I was placed in the female dormitory, which a tiny room for 8 people - but that didn't really bother me, as I'm generally super low maintenance. What did bother me was waking up halfway through the night to discover that I had... More

Spent a couple of days and stayed in a dorm for 500 met per person. The hostel as a good security service, good bar and equipped kitchen, Staff speaks English and can arrange local transports and city tours. Unfortunately, during the afternoon there was no electricity; apparently it was a problem in the neighborhood.

Fatima's Place in Maputo is well-located in a nice area of town. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Communal chill area looks nice, with enough spots to host large groups. The dorm I stayed in (Baobab) was not the cleanest ever and the mattresses were pretty thin. Bathroom facilities were okay. Good security in this hostel.

Two weeks ago I spent one night in Maputo to take the "shuttle" from Fatima's to Tofo. First of all the rooms are totally overpriced and the "shuttle" is a public bus, which leaves whenever it is full. Hence our total trip lasted 13hours instead of 6. Suggest to take another hotel or hostel in Maputo and look for alternative... More
