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

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
