                  Directions are completely inadequate, the address that were given does not exist, we ended up not booking in at all as we could not find the place, called the owner Patrick,who insisted the directions is right, but still could not find place, when you view the address on Google maps, it shows you a shop, no sign of the Backpackers lodge, I am thoroughly disgusted , I ended up losing my money.

                  Mbizi would benefit from putting up a sign outside its gate, so that guests could actually find it. A working doorbell might also help.
