    Superb

    08 Dec 2019
    My friend and I stayed at Back2Roots Backpackers for a week. We truly enjoyed our stay here - staff were extremely friendly, rooms/bathrooms/showers were very clean, there was security by the hotel and the hostel, and the location was prime as this is a dining/bar hub in Windhoek. The hostel is right next door to the Roof of Africa Hotel but you can use the pool, which was very nice, dining area, and bar to hang out. Wifi was available in both the hostel and hotel. Highly recommend!

    Friendly staff and a security man at the door way 24/7. Made us feel safe while staying there. Would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Namibia.

    Fabulous

    Nice facilities, very clean and friendly staff. But it isn’t a backpackers where you meet a lot of other backpackers. I stayed alone in the hostel. It’s more famous for the hotel than for the hostel.

    Fabulous

    Very nice dorm room with air-con, wi-fi, comfy beds, night-light and electric outlet. Excellent security. But it's not a hostel. You won't get free breakfast, no organized social activities and it costs about 100-150 NAD more than hostels closer in to the city.
