    This cute little backpackers is how every backpackers should be run! It’s small and homey, and a great place to meet amazing travellers. The staff is super friendly and helpful if you need to find a place to eat, book activities or give you tips for your next destination. The beds are superb and the location is close to everything in town. They have an adorable dog, cat and two chickens. The only downside is that there is one toilet but this is a must-stay if you’re in Swakopmund!

    A very chill spot, perfect for people coming to Swakopmund to surf. The hostel takes care to be as sustainable as possible and to be a place where people can relax after a day of surfing. The staff were outgoing and invited me to come into town with them and see some local attractions.

    I stayed here over New Years because I thought it would be a nice, sociable place as I was travelling by myself. However the staff decided to go out to a festival and didn't invite guests, organise anything else, or give alternative places to go. They were extremely rude and selfish, I also could not book a surf lesson because it conflicted with personal surfing time. Positives: the place was clean, close to the town and the beach. Would not stay again, atmosphere and staff really let it down.
