    Loved the place, loved that it's a minutes' walk to the beach. Super friendly hostess as well as the one other staff member I met. Even the guests are friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Swakopmund, especially if you want comfortable and affordable accommodation!

    I spent a comfortable two nights here, found it very peaceful and well kept. It's about a mile from the city center and 5 minutes walk from the ocean. I was in a single room and pleasantly surprised to have an ensuite bathroom- not sure if all the singles do. Tea & coffee available in the kitchens at all times, continental breakfast in the morning, friendly staff. Laundry service was much appreciated after all the time I spent in the desert.

    It was a nice hostel very near to the beach and not too far from the little beach town. It was very empty when I first arrived but that's expected during low tourist season.

    Everything was perfect! Although we slept in a 4 bed-dorm, we had the room for ourselves during the 3 nights we stayed there. Very nice hosts, who helped us figuring out how to spend our days in Swakopmund and did the necessary reservations (fe: Tommy's Living Desert Tour -- really great, ask after Jürgen; sandboarding & quad-biking; ...). Basic but very tasty breakfast.

    Always home away from home. Only problem is the hot water that's not always hot on a cold morning or evening. I will still come back, but I hope the team can fix the water issue asap.

    Wonderful little place. Breakfast is great, WiFi is really good, only a little walk to the beach you can watch the sunset over the ocean and it’s amazing. I would stay here again! Kitchen is also lovely.

    Facilities were nice and clean. Was about a 20 min walk from downtown, but it's a safe area so walking is fine. Room was somewhat loud in the mornings.
