Stayed here camping for a few nights, the camp area is nice and roomy (can fit a roof tent), the parking area is secure. The facilities are fantastic, clean, modern and lots of hot water! Dorms were clean, tidy and modern looking also. The staff are brilliant - helpful, friendly and accommodating. We had to stay in the dorm one... More

My wife and i stayed over for three nights on business last week - what a special place! Room was great, bed super comfortable, clean and good value! Very good vibe in the lounge/kitchen/braai area and we were very well looked after. Highly recommended!

Best backpackers I had in Africa. I already want to go back. This backpackers brings in the best people and is so clean- beds are beyond comfortable. You have to come here to experience it. I could have lived here for weeks. Great comfortable beds, very clean. I was sad to leave. I could live here. Beach view.

This was one of our best stays in Namibia. Good warm showers and the hosts Rochelle, Liana and Rodella were suuuuuper friendly. She is willing to move mountains to accommodate people. She also made a lot of reservations for us because we didn't have a Namibian phone number. Definitely will stay again. We stayed in room 7 which accomodated 7.... More

We did not get a chance to stay at this lovely establishment, as our reservation got lost in a miscommunication. We only had to wait 20 minutes as the owner quickly organized a night at the luxury bed and breakfast next door to them, ensuring that we would only pay the price we originally had to pay at Skeleton Beach....

We had a fantastic stay at the Skeleton Beach backpackers! The owner is very sweet and super helpful, she went out of her way to assure that we were comfortable and happy. Very nicely located as well, it's both close to the beach and the town center.

I was travelling alone and a backpackers did not sound like a great idea until i got there and found it is conveniently located and living arrangements allowed me to meet interesting people or be a loner when I felt like it. Also great atmosphere to get away from busy rush of everyday life,loved it.
