Accommodation is basic but nice ambience in the common area and rooftop chill spot. Bathrooms are unisex and there is hot water. Staff are friendly. Wifi only works at certain hours- but don't expect wifi to be guaranteed within those hours either. Free airport transfer is useful. There is also a daily shuttle that picks you up here and takes...

This hostel is located in a safe residential neighbourhood in Maputo that is near enough to all the main attractions. The free airport pick up will make you feel safe and at ease especially if this is your entry point to Moz or Africa. Wifi works well but doesn't come online until 5pm. The best thing for us was the...

I'm not sure why everyone is so average to negative. This is exactly what backpackers/travelers need. Its a decent location in Maputo to get around. The beds clean, staff helpful, and showers fine. Its a good place to meet people as well. If people want something upscale, go stay at the Radisson Blu.

We rented a private room without a bathroom. The rooms were nice, and there is a very quirky terrace up top which is a nice place to enjoy some food or drinks. No complaints - would be happy to stay there again.

Fatimas is a nice hostel but a bit overpriced in my opinion. Furthermore, its not in the center of Maputo. Anyway, the Tofo shuttle service is a big advantage as you get good seats in the bus starts at fatimas. Therefor you have to wait (ca. 1,5h) as the bus fills up at the bus station.

Pretty average place but this is where you get the bus to Tofo, or go to the bustling major bus terminal. They offer an airport pick up service but everything else pretty average. Staff not to good on the service either.

I made the mistake of chosing this place and almost ruining my trip. The owner Fatima is an unreliable person, who will lie about the prices and her intentions. Im my case it involved her offering a different accomodation than what we agreed for, and robbing me, not returning the money and lying to the immigration about me. In the...

We booked a stay here for convenience as we were taking the Fatima's shuttle from Tofo back to Maputo. We asked the staff in Tofo how much a room cost in Maputo and were told 2800 Mt. When we arrived n Maputo it turned out that a room was 4000 Mt. This is a rip-off for the standard of room...

We spend a couple of nigths here, and the place offers free airport pickup which was a very nice service, but on the other hand the service at the reception was very bad, so sadly not more than average in total... Dorm was alright, but with big lockable cabinets.

I stayed in my own room with ensuite. Very basic but good value for what you pay. Safe and comfortable with friendly staff. I tried booking via an email and never got a response (dive company did it for me in the end).. the complimentary bus service didn't turn up which was pretty frustrating.
