I actually didn't stay at Fatimas but I used their "shuttle" service from Maputo to Tofo return. From what I saw, The Backpackers looked clean in the reception area.Anyhow, the so called "shuttle picked us up in the morning and dropped us off at the Main bus rank downtown Maputo (this was never communicated to us), where we were made...

Fatima is highly recommended by many but in fact very poor. For one thing, there is basically no internet. This is the same at their Tofo location, but at least there it has some redeeming qualities. Travelers need Internet to plan their trip. I encountered an emergency and couldn't get online because of this.

Beautiful and secure place. Nice dorm rooms. Great staff. One area of improvement: The shower room inside the main house. There are no windows and the place is very sloppy. The bathroom is very disgusting, please look at re-working the entire room. The water flow from the shower is poor/little. please replace the shower as well. Overall is a great... More

Avoid their shuttle service, they don't have place for bags, but put them on the floor so that everybody has to step on them (just imagine when 30 people step on your backpack after the visit of the toilette at a gas station). The drivers are rude. The bus stops everywhere.

If youre looking for a backpackers in Maputo I strongly recommend Fatima's. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, beer available and live shows occassionally. Fatima's is central and eqi-distant from the esplanade and central market. There is also the added benefit of staying here in friendly and helpful staff who will arrange almost anything you may require. It is a... More

It felt that this place had lost its sense of pride and become a bit run down. Maputo is extraordinarily expensive and Fatimas was about the only place within our budget that we could prebook, so our expectations weren't high. Our en suite double was ventilated by a window that opened into the car port. Our clothes and selves smelled... More

Safely located close to atm's, and places to dine. However fans in room are in poor condition, and the noise from the main reception/ bar feels like twenty people sitting in your room when trying to sleep. Staff was helpful, but over all rooms are ovens and noise control was out of control. If you can deal with that its... More

We stayed both coming to and going from Mozambique. The public area and rooms are very attractively painted and decorated. The room was very comfortable but a little noisy from the public area. Price was decent. The location is good, right across the street from an ATM, and within a few minutes walk from a grocery store and a number... More

This is your typical hostel. Full of travellers, lots of people to share doorms and bathrooms with. The beds are OK, but the toilets and showers were a disaster. Clogged toilets and damp showers, nothing you will find in other hostels. At night,the party is heavy! Thus, if you don't mind poor ablutions and noise this is good value for... More
