We stayed in a dorm. It was good value for money but only if you stay for a short period of time. The men's bathroom is full of mosquitos, although the women's was pretty clean. The person who works there is borderline rude and the breakfast is bizarre since it is only served from 8 to 9, but in our case, the staff only started making it at around 8:30 am. So if you are planning to have an early morning, make an alternate plan. Also, internet is not good and they def need more power outlets.

This place is just what you need when you're in Windhoek. Good location, walking distance from town, free wi fi, good value for money, best showers ever (strong water pressure), free breakfast (so delicious ), nice and clean facilities, swimming pool to cool down from hot weather, chill lounge area, lovely and friendly staffs, nice atmosphere. You definitely gonna have great time there as I did.


friendliness of staff dependet a lot on daily mood. kitchen equipment often dirty. private rooms were clean and good.


Their Swakopmund branch is way better. They have to work on this one starting from Reception Desk.
