Great Location
This hostel is located next to the beach and a few blocks away from a grocery store and restaurants. The hostel itself is clean and the staff is friendly. The staff has brochures for tours and will call to RSVP for you, but that's about it. WIFI doesn't work in the dorm.
Kimberly, us2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
I was in Swakopmund for a few days in the Swakopmund Backpackers hostel: I recommend this hostel because it is clean, comfortable, safe, friendly staff and in an exceptional location just a few steps from the Ocean! Alongside you can enjoy an amazing pizza at Giovanni's Italian Pizzeria. Highly recommended!
Maria, itOther trip
Poor 2.0
It would have been a nice stay (minus the daily WiFi limit of 150 mbytes), if it wasn't for the serious bedbug problem in the upstairs dorm. I was severely bitten on the face, neck, arms, back, and butt.
