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.

Great place, warm welcome and easy to find. we spent a night with friends and we loved the treatment and the fact that it was clean.. it is also in the main street which makes it easy to reach the beach without much hustle.

We arrived late into Maputo after a long drive down from their sister hostel in Tofo. We were shown to a room which was effectively a 4 bed dorm. The price we were charged was 4000 meticals per night (August 2016 = $53 per night) The management (on checkout) produced a laminated sheet listing prices for accommodation where there was...

I visited this backpackers in July and August 2016. It's a small, nice place close to the city center, but the atmosphere is quite strange. The staff is questioning every concern you have, so you have to discuss really everything (change, payment, dorm beed, food etc.) which makes a stay very inconvenient. Additionally, they also have a very untransparent price...

Stayed for one night but it was a good night sleep . The place is good and the staff is very friendly . Lots of places to sit and rel;ax and even more options for the type of accommodation you want as a back packer
