Lüderitz itself is a interesting little town and the perfect place to relax. It is in the "middle of nowhere", 125 km away from the next village. It's surrounding is a very rough and unique landscape, lonely beaches with tough flora and wildlife.

Also a visit to the ghost town of Kolmanskop, a dolphin and penguin boat tour or a visit to Elizabeth Bay are great and unforgettable things to do in Luderitz!

Before travelling to Lüderitz, pause for a moment to study the country map and how the town is sandwiched between the barren Namib Desert and the windswept South Atlantic coast. As if Lüderitz’ unique geographical setting wasn’t impressive enough, its surreal German art nouveau architecture will seal the deal. A colonial relic scarcely touched by the 21st century, Lüderitz recalls a Bavarian dorfchen (small village), with churches, bakeries and cafes. Lüderitz feels stuck in a time warp, a perception that delivers both gloom and a certain charm. In short, it’s one of the most incongruous places in Africa. lonely planet

Please note the following important information: Although we try our best to keep everything clean, if the wind blows (as it does a lot in Luderitz) there will be dust, there will be some sand in the windows and all kinds of things blowing through the yards. Our establishment is NOT a hotel; there is no reception desk, no pottier to carry your bags, but Virgina and her team will give their best to make you feel home. Please note: They also help the guests at the Guesthouse, and due to this they are not always on-site but always reachable.

Our establishment is not in a position to accept any liability, including due to any losses on account of any criminal incidents. By booking with us you hereby accept all liability and indemnify the establishment with respect to all such potential losses.

Covid Safety Approved: During the Covid 19 crisis we limit the number of guests, no sharing of bathrooms, only private used. We clean according to government and personal strict rules, safety distance and personal protection equipment are of course used!

The Accommodation is under renorvation and the room we booked we didnt get. Would it not be better to tell people before hand and let people decide for themselves if they want to overnight at a contstraction site or not and top it all at 7:30 the day starts up banging hammers from constraction workers..

The hostel is worn out and rooms especially in the separate building are very ascetic (little better in the main building), but if you don't let that turn you away, you'll find a very nice, relaxed and safe place in the centre of Luderitz. The kitchen is equipped with everything imaginable. I stayed here twice, before and after my southern tour. I can also recommend the small Avis car rental office. The best swimming beaches are in the camping area, it costs 10N$, but for that you can find your own little cove
