We stayed here for two nights but we could have stayed longer. Frenus and Sybille were really welcoming and told us everything we needed to know about the place. We put the kettle on straight away and had a nice cup of tea. It is so relaxed and informal. The room we stayed in was brilliant. Loads of space and... More

We stayed at the alternative space B&B for 2 nights. What an awesome place! Unique fittings and absolutely stunning! I was a little irked that there was no tv but loved the idea of snuggling up in front of the fire place after popping in one of the dvd's which were on offer. The hosts are uber-friendly and I love... More

This B&B is very welcoming and relaxing. Sadly I was ill whilst in Swakopmund and I was so grateful to be staying at Alternative Space where it was relaxed and comfortable. There was sand in our room and bathroom but I guess that's inevitable in this location. We ate at Kucki's in town but were not impressed with either the... More

From the moment we turned the street and saw the Alternative Space I knew this was going to be something different. The owner Freynus met us and showed us the room which was a huge open plan space, encompassing the shower, bath and toilet, all built by Freynus. All beautifully put together in a peaceful and harmonic setting on the... More

Come in and let your soul be touched by the unique atmosphere of the alternative space! The 2 days in this guest house were definitely one highlight of our trip! A deeply relaxing environment, inspiring art and literature and freefloating dreams, beautiful, arty rooms with free standing bathtubs, a red wine in the comunity room with cadle light, listening to...

This is a very cozy and comfortable place to stay. Nice rooms and the owners are very friendly and helpful. It was a nice break from our mainly camping experience in Namibia and the place to tank some comfort with an excellent quality/price ratio.

Upon arrival, we immediately wished we could stay longer: Alternative Space is overflowing with charm, from the cleverly designed courtyard, to Frenus's friendliness, the B&B goes above and beyond in making its guests comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked for self-serve breakfast and the hosts bring fresh bread each morning. Each room has electrically heated blankets (that came in... More

We spent one night at this B&B after a few nights of camping and really enjoyed the hospitality and the very relaxed, informal atmosphere of the place. Breakfast is rich and varied, you can use the kitchen and do your own cooking if you wish. You can sit by the fireplace in the evenings to chat with other guests and... More

In our first plan, we would only stay in Alternative space for one night. But thanks for the naughty Namibia Airways, we actually stayed 3 nights there which proved to be extremely wonderful. Alternative is located at the edge of Swakopmund, quiet place. The town is really small, so we quit our car and walked around. It's only 20 minutes... More
