Pink Papaya hostel (Backpackers) Reviews


This is a small and friendly hostel. The house is old colonial style with a homely feel about it, has a BBQ in the garden for backpackers and to cook on and sit round the fire afterwards with a cold drink etc! it also has a well equipped self catering kitchen to cook and a hot shower, bar and and safe parking.

traditionally, people just passed through chimoio on route to the coast, to Zimbabwe or Malawi, but now there is lots to do in chimoio if you want a change from the beach scene.
such as>

Trips to Penhalonga or Chimanimani Mountains to hiking and enjoy a beautiful landscape with waterfalls, an old botanical garden, simply wonderful...
