    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!

    Namibia is one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to, and Swakopmund is a big reason why. After meeting awesome people in the hostel, we organized to skydive in the city together and did it. Not to mention the location is central and close to the beaches and a plethora of eateries. The staff were extremely helpful and one member even played ping pong with me! It features clean rooms and showers and a nice campfire. Additionally, it was secure. I would recommend the hostel and Namibia! Thanks.

    Salty jackal is in a really great location, and mixes the relaxed atmosphere of swakopmund with the inviting atmosphere of a hostel. It is not perfect, but if you are looking for a backpacker this is a great option.

    I wish I'd stayed longer in swakopmund if only for this hostel which was super chilled out, very cozy, and had lovely staff. Security for personal belongings in the room could be better, and as others have noted there's a shortage of bathrooms, but building security was great, wifi good, and overall pleasant.
