A girl’s only dorm is available. The largest of our dorms contains just nine beds.

Linen is provided in all our rooms. Towels are available from reception.

Combining the best of Zambian and Irish hospitality, Kalulu Backpackers Hostel is Lusaka’s newest budget accommodation provider. Your hosts Shawn and Clio have years of experience of living and working in hostels all over the world, as well as detailed local knowledge of life and travel in Lusaka and Zambia. We love Zambia and want to make sure that you get to see the best that this wonderful country has to offer.

Clean, comfortable and secure, Kalulu Backpackers Hostel is perfectly located close to transport links, two of Lusaka’s largest shopping malls, and the city centre. We believe in getting the basics right, so the bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, the showers are hot, and the beer is cold. Relax by the pool, enjoy a drink at our fully stocked bar, or take some time to explore the sights and sounds of Lusaka. Whether you want to hire a local taxi, find out what’s showing at the cinema, rent a car, or book a safari tour, our experienced staff is on hand to answer all your questions and take care of your needs.

We have a variety of accommodation options on offer from mixed dorms, a female-only dorm, private rooms and camping.

Enjoy a delicious meal from our cafe, or cook up a feast yourself in our fully equipped communal kitchen. We also hold regular Braai nights – a great way to get to know your fellow guests.

Airport Transfers can be arranged. Contact us before your flight and we will be happy to meet you at the airport and bring you to the backpackers. A charge applies for this service.

We stayed here for just one night during the bitter cold winter :). Mallory was very friendly and helpful and we definitely enjoyed the bar as it was World Cup season. The grounds are undergoing much needed renovations but overall it was a pretty good location for our first night in Lusaka.

The proximity to the shopping malls is the main plus here. The city felt safe. Mallory recommended the Mint Lounge (the sit-down restaurant version of the Mint Cafe) for a meal which turned out to be the best salads we'd ever had! Work of art! The nightlife was pretty good with Chicagos (1930s Chicago gangster themed bar/restaurant) nearby and various other restaurants and chains. We stayed in the dorms, though they offer camping as well. The showers and toilets are dotted around the property. They have a rustic bar where we watched football and mingled with other travellers and locals.
