Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to stay at urban camp by some friends who had stayed earlier in the year. Good clean bathroom and shower units as well as a big shade net to put our tent under. Ice cold beer and a heated pool was a winning combination and the friendly bar staff were very accomodating for us. Does a good job of having an out of town feel yet only being a 10 minute walk to the city centre.

This place is super cool/affordable/social-when you want it/quiet- when you want it.

My partner and I hitch-hiked into Namibia from Katima Molilo and ended up in Walvas bay. We rented a 4x4 truck for a week and explored the country, covering lots of kilometers a day. We weren't that excited about Windhoek. So glad we hunted urbancamp out, it still felt like we're camping in the bush - to a reasonable degree and a healthy amount of imagination....that is, But the city center was also just a 15 min walk.

Example: The staff is full of non-obvious great advice about the area (ask about the unsuspecting/nameless amazing Italian restaurant, not too far from the camp. - also they'll be your genuine friends by the end of the first night. Very accommadating and receptive to feedback (if you make a suggestion, it will -at least be seriously considered).

I really loved this place - so did my female partner. Give it a try.

my ONLY compliant, would be that there's this Scottish young man always hanging around, always a few beers deep (they have amazing local beers on tap[honeybush!]) and no one can understand a word he is saying...still a charming young lad.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: they are all good.

Really cool owner and staff that make you feel right at home. Good atmosphere at the bar which sells a good selection of food, snacks and endless drink.

Double or two single very comfy beds in a tent, bathroom each with the best shower that I had in Namibia ! Lots of hot water etc..

In an excellent location for surrounding restaurants and bars, short taxi ride into the centre of town.

All round really good vibe and the staff are so friendly and helpful, some semi permanent residents who are very cool too.

My stay at urban camp was excellent! I hired a tent which came equipped with a bed and cupboards as well as a personal bathroom which has probably the best shower you will find in Namibia! The other big bonus is the wifi which extends throughout the entire camp as well as hammocks dotted around the place. The location is good for shopping and walking into town and the bar in the campsite is a hit with the locals as well ( try the game burger ). Good job urban camp!
