Desert Sky Backpackers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2017

This backpackers is close to most of the areas where you need to be. Staff always friendly and very helpful. Ablution facilities is clean and perfect for that quick rest and getting ready before setting off on the next part of your travel through this magnificent country. Kitchen is very well equipped and large enough for a few travellers to prepare meals at once. Dormitories are modern and very clean as well. Enough space to camp in a tent outside on the lawn. The premises are very safe and for me travelling by motorcycle and wanting to leave most of my belongings on the bike, it is quite a big bonus. I have stayed there on 5 occasions already, and have never been disappointed. Will stay there again when passing through.

Stayed: September 2016

Doesn't matter if you are a backpacker looking for a shared room, or someone wanting to camp: this is the best accommodation I've been in a while. It's very clean, with a spacious, comfortable living room. A big and well equipped kitchen. A lovely yard to eat or relax. And well informed staff with great recommendations. Couldn't be happier! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a place in Swakopmund to check this out!

I phoned at 6:30 on Wednesday afternoon, explaining my dilemma and after a few seconds Mrs Loftie-Eaton accommodated me. That quick and friendly helpfulness swept me off my feet as this was the 12th call. The eleven before this call rejected my dilemma and was not prepared Within half an hour I was save and sound in the Backpackers with secure parking and experienced a warm welcome and lovely tranquil surroundings.
