Small hostel around a 10 minute walk from the centre of Swakopmund. Very popular with the overland crowd.
Rooms are compact, but comfortable, with a small security locker for small bags, wallets, passports etc. Most dorms sleep four people. Unfortunately, the rooms do not have charging points, which can be an issue if you carry a lot of gadgets!
Bathrooms are shared between two dorms, and the toilet and shower are in separate cubicles, so there is never too long to wait. They are cleaned twice a day.
The bar is fairly comfortable, and the prices are reasonable. There are plenty of sofas to sit on, plus a large TV with all of the cable channels. The bar overlooks the restaurant area. There are a few board games dotted around for amusement. Downstairs, there is a fairly good book exchange, but they require you to leave two books to take one.
Free wifi is available throughout the hostel, and is fairly fast and reliable.
The hostel has a laundry service, but it is ridiculously overpriced (N$60 per kilo). You are better off going to the launderette down the road, where it is less than half that.
The hostel has a good atmosphere, and many of the overland trucks stop here at weekends. Staff are all pretty friendly and more than happy to help in booking local excursions.
