Great stay in spacious airy rooms.
Great spacious rooms with soothing ceiling fan. Rooms are in a shady breezy courtyard with a great pizza pasta restaurant. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at Olga’s. Nothing glamorous but very comfortable and staff was always polite and very helpful with booking our activities throughout our stay. Food was great too! We ate their for almost every meal, very convenient, and we always loved the music playing outside where we ate. I would return if in Livingstone again.

Everything was good, the room was as per the pictures, the bathroom was clean and functional and service was also fine. The pizza and pasta were very nice. Breakfast was nice, the coffe was tasty. If you're looking for a simple comfortable place, this is where you should go. I have absolutely no complaints,but also nothing to rave about or would put me off. Good value for money and friendly service, good food

Clean, Secure, and gives back to the community.
This is not luxury accommodation, but it is clean, comfortable, affordable, and helps young Zambian learn trades in the hospitality industry. It is very well located in downtown Livingston, and all of the tours and activities will pick up there. We felt very secure there to. The property is gated, with an attendant on duty 24 hrs. It has a charm all its own. Food at the onsite restaurant is very good. Excellent breakfast included with room.

Olgas is an interesting place to stay. The food is super good, so good that we ended up eating all our dinners there. We asked about their NGO, and took a tour of the training school which a portion of their earnings are supposed to be supporting. The school is providing instruction in trades to about 250 students. They are very hands on and are apparently doing a good work in their instruction, however we were told that Olgas has served primarily as an outlet for their finished products and there appears to be no current direct funding to the school by the Olgas association. The staff are great, the location is good to access cabs to go out to the falls and downtown is easy walking distance. The major problem is that the hotel is next to a church that has a bell which goes off at 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. If you are a light sleeper be forewarned. We found this to be a minor distraction and would stay there anyway because of the staff and the food.
