Located on 25 Ridge Road in Avondale and on the corner of Five Av. & 9th Str. Our lodge in Avondale is situated less than 2.5km from Harare’s city centre and is easily accessed by car or public transport.

Feel free to spend a few days and nights relaxing with us, while looking around or doing business in our beautiful Sunshine City. Or just hop in for a coffee and internet or a refreshing sundowner by the swimming pool.

We offer dorms, private rooms, camping and en-suite accommodation to meet the needs and budget of any traveller. All is within a few minutes walk from shops, markets, restaurants, theatres and a cinema.

Our friendly, relaxed retreat is ideal for backpackers, families, NGO’s or anyone who wants to recuperate in a comfortable and affordable environment. Whatever the purpose of your stay is we welcome you and we will do our best to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible

And whether you are interested in culture, sports, wildlife, history, art of nightlife, Zimbabwe has it all! Our friendly reception staff can answer all you questions concerning travel, tours and recreation in Harare and generally Zimbabwe. If you want to book a bus to neighbouring countries, a train to Victoria Falls or you want to do a Harare City Tour, we are more than happy to assist you.

There are two main theatres in Harare, staging work by local and international playwrights and performers. Both host music and comedy events. Harare’s two cinemas – Eastgate and Westgate – show a range of (mostly Hollywood) films and are a great cheap night’s entertainment. Free films are also regularly shown at Alliance Francaise (just around the corner from our Five Ave. lodge), at theNational Gallery and at the German Society. The annual Film Festival usually takes place in August/September.

Party people can also find their luck in Harare, there’s concerts and music everywhere! Visit the Bookcafe for daily life music and good books and food. Jazz 105 does Jazz and goes life on Fridays. Go to English Pub Londoners (a stone’s throw from our Avondale branch) if you want to socialize with local Zimbabweans while enjoying affordable beers and a braai.

The Harare Sports Club is good for parties with DJ’s or to watch a match of cricket. Sign up for the Zimbabwe Arts Events list if you want to be updated on weekly activities, events and outings in Harare and Bulawayo.
