Stayed here over the weekend. It's a bit outside the city centre, but it only takes around 20 minutes to make the walk so there's not really a problem. About 10 minutes away you have a shopping centre. Very close to the ocean. The included breakfast was really good and the WIFI connection was really good aswell. There is no bar in the hostel, so if you want to party this is not the right hostel. The people staying there was older. Helpful staff.

The hostel was hard to find because the road names do not really match with the maps of the city. We were said it is because the city is changing so fast. But it could be helpful to have some board on the main road to indicate the location of the hostel.

Skeleton Beach Backpackers has a very Home-type of a feel which was really nice over the holidays! We met great people and the staff is super friendly. Just seconds away from the beach and a few minutes away from the city centre. I would totally recommend this backpackers!

We stayed there for 2 nights and we enjoyed it. Staff was absolutely helpful, recommended a nice and cheap taxi driver and recommended a good camel riding tour. Breakfast was super and cleanliness good. Very good value for money! I would definitely come again. Its about 15-20 min to walk to the city centre....

Comparing to the backpacker hostels in Europe, the quality was much better! Comfortable beds and cozy athmosphere. For those who don't mind walking a bit, the situation is ok.

Great hostel with good location. 15 min walk to sam nujoma ave along the beach. The owner was very kind and helpful. Stayed in a private room with comfortable beds. Quiet area. Recommend staying here!

We stayed in a twinroom with an ensuite. it was clean, with a balcony and the hostel itself was lovely. The owner was very nice and helpful and breakfast was perfect:) Toast cheese, jam and cereals. It is situated at the coast and within 20-30 minutes walk along the coast you reach the city centre. The owner also organises trips as quad biking sandboarding or skydiving for you! if I ever went to Swakop again I would stay there!!!

The accomodations were very good and reasonably priced. However, the place was very difficult to find with poor lighting and signage.

The tv in the common room disturbs the atmosphere, why not having a separate tv room?

It wasn't too far from the city centre, and the hostel was right near the beach. The beds were so comfortable, definitely not a thin flimsy mattress here. The hostel had a pretty great spread for breakfast. The place was clean on the outside and the inside. I would definitely come here again.
