I stayed at the backpackers for about two month. Not knowing to many people in Lusaka and being busy during the day, I really learnt to appreciate to interesting crowd of people you will meet there. There is a quite large group of locals (expatriots, indigenous and long stayers) that use the backpackers bar as their social meeting point. On the other hand there are a lot of backpackers that stay there for one or two night. So this combined is really something once in a while. But basically you will almost always find the right people you want to talk to.
The rooms are clean and the sanitation as well, but both are definately not luxurious. I can only recommend this place, if you want to stay in a good and affordable place in Lusaka. There a cheaper places, but not better in my opinion.
