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

We stayed at Fatimas for 3 long nights as we waited to go to Tofo. Paid a hefty R240, South African Rands just to sleep in our own tents. In other SADC countries backpackers with own tents pay usually maximum of R150-South African Rands per night camping..the place is so stuffy n crowded with dogs loitering in the flies infested...

A reasonably nice hostel in a fairly good area. Has a nice open living area but the staff don't seem to know all that much about the things to do in Maputo and the dorm room is hugely over priced for what is on offer. It is a simple dorm room with nothing special to raise it to this price,... More

We were very disappointed with Fatima's and next time will look for somewhere else in Maputo. Pros: Location - feels safe, good area, some restaurants around and easy access to the centre/Baixa Bar - quite social in the evenings Transfer to Tofo - easily organised door to door service Cons: Staff- rude, very unhelpful and overall sour. Refused to call... More

Fatima's is ideal for a stopover on the way to Tofo or Inhambane. However, somethings were not quite as expected. We had arranged and confirmed pick up at the airport, but the driver forgot, which added a steep taxi fare that the staff refused to reimburse. The "shuttle" to Tofo was actually just the normal bus, which we could have... More

It's a really nice cosy hostel, colourful and friendly. The rooms (dorms) downstairs are good but there are much muskito's because everyone leaves the door open and when u want to go to sleep early u will hear the rumour from ppl because it's next to the 'livingroomgarden'. The 'newer' rooms, which are in the builing upstairs, are really nice... More

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
