    This is hands down THE best backpacker place to stay in Lilongwe, nowhere else even comes close. I've stayed in multiple places in Lilongwe but Mabuya is the only place I come to now. The people are what makes this place, the managers Kelly and...More

    We stayed at Mabuya a couple of times on our recent trip to Malawi, great service, great food and very helpful staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere and a friendly bar. Good standard of facilities which were clean and tidy.

    The food was excellent and the owners were really friendly and helpful. It is a good place to hangout in the evening. It is quite rough round the edges and needs a good clean! It also felt a little bit over priced. Would stay there...More
