“Tielman van Lill”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on November 04, 2019

Friendly staff Helia and Nicolene made me feel welcome. Nice, clean & friendly. I slept well and entertained myself twice with Gabriella's sumptious Italian pizzas. I will call again on 21 November...

“Ideal in every way!”

Swakopmund Backpackers is easily the best backpackers we have stayed at; it felt like home from home. Great family room & bathroom opposite. Great big kitchen. Fabulous, super popular, pizzeria right...

“Nice place”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on July 17, 2019

This place is nice, clean, and safe. The location is great. It was quiet when I was there, so there is not much else to say, it was pretty low key. Nicole was incredibly helpful and wonderful, she is...


The closest airport with international arrival flights are located 30km from Swakopmund. When entering Swakopmund from Walvis Bay take the first street left after passing the bridge. At the T-junction left again. Right at the roundabout and we are on the left.
