The main draw card of this hostel is the restaurant/bar which overlooks the beach. The rooms are basic but more than adequate by backpacker standards. Be prepared for the power to cut out and come back on sporadically. Wifi is slow. Food is decent. Discounts at Tofo Scuba apply if you are staying here and the shuttle bus to Maputo...

The view from the balcony at Fatima's is fantastic, but that is the only positive thing I can say. The staff are unhelpful and reluctant to assist. The rooms are filthy. We had a door that did not lock properly and asked to change rooms. Even though the property was not full we were not allowed to do so. This...

We came to Tofo to party in the New Year, and in this department Fatima's did deliver. In every other area they didn't. By word of mouth we had heard some good things about the place but ever since arriving we continued to be disappointed. It seems that the staff don't really care about anything thing at all. On arrival,...

It literally takes 40 minutes to get a pizza, and that's when the restaurant is not even busy. When it is, you can expect to wait over an hour... The food is mediocre, they don't take card, they spike the alcohol-prices during high season and they do not offer cleaning your room even if you stay for several weeks. The...

We decided to stay in Fatimas nest in Tofo only because we took their bus from Maputo and the guys from the Maputo branch convinced us to pay in advance in Maputo also for the stay in Tofo. They told us it will be cheaper that way. The minute we arrived to Fatimas nest in Tofo we knew we made...

I stayed her for one night and what a s...hole! Service was terrible at check inn and out. All safe boxes in dorm were broken! No utensils in commun kitchen... Just a very old and run down place, with very lacy staff! And not cheaper than other places around, if you just lokk for them!

I had my own little bungalow with ensuite overlooking the beach. Cheap, safe and handy location.. The bus ride took 10 hours (from Maputo) and was not very enjoyable. Plan ahead and fly in and out of Inhambhe saves you 2 whole days of return travel.. Staff were nice enough however don't go out of their way to make conversation.....

The lodge has perfect location because is almost into the beach, you can really see the sea from the rooms and from the restaurant. The bar has parties at weekends, if you don't have the mood for party, don't go to Fatima's Nest. The dormitory and facilities are ok.

The location is killer. Short walk to the market, beach right out front. The staff are pretty nice for the most part and fairly helpful. Kitchen can be slow but the food isnt bad. Pool table and lounge areas are nice at night, but bad pop music is irritating and loud, even when there is nothing going on. Prices are...

Most important thing first: fantastic location on the beach with a balcony and bar overlooking it. This is why I would recommend this place. The food was ok, the drinks reasonably priced. The irritants: wifi between 7pm and 5am, like in Maputo. Why???? This is what backpackers want the most, like it or not. Also, the dorm is a bit...
