          Real backpackers hangout. Modest suites and rooms with private bathrooms available. Ground floor rooms a bit noisy when the guest upstairs flushes the toilet. Very basic breakfast but has facilities to cook your own meals. Location is walking distance from crafts market, high street, and...More

          This lodging option was a good one for our family as it was close in proximity to our rental vehicle drop off and to the center of Windhoek. Our family suite was very clean and comfortable. Visiting with other guests was a highlight too!

          Simple, clean and friendly place. Free walking tour of city. Very relaxed. Breakfast could be improved. Variety of room (we had a bedroom with shower). Small pool area, but lots of places to sit and chill out.
