Property Description

Windhoek's oldest and most popular backpackers accommodation, offers accommodation in dormitories and private rooms, as well as a bar and restaurant

The Cardboard Box was started in 1992 due to a combination of factors, the most important of which was the need for beer money. Over the years the hostel has metamorphised from a small 12 bed backpackers hostel into its present state. The Cardboard Box is Windhoek (and Namibia's) oldest and biggest backpackers hostel, we have beds for 45 people and camping space for about 20 campers.

The hostel is Namibian owned and managed, this is a rare occurence in the backpacking industry in Namibia. Although we have grown considerably from the early days we still strive to give the same warm and personal Namibian service that made us the most popular place to stay in Windhoek.

If you're planning to visit Windhoek and Namibia the 'Box is definately the place to stay!

Bedrooms were cold, I know it's winter but where Im from this is summer weather, it was fre "
