About Villa Wiese Backpackers Lodge

Located in Swakopmund, with its fascinating German architecture, historical buildings and warm people, Villa Wiese stands out as a charming 100-year-old building that we converted into a cosy backpackers lodge.

At Villa Wiese we offer more than just quality accommodation, we will ensure that you receive that extra personal touch and local flavour. We are centrally situated and within walking distance from town, restaurants and the main beach.

Once inside, enormous wooden beams support the gothic ceilings of the double volume dining room, where your tasty breakfast awaits you in the mornings. Head upstairs to our licensed pub with an excellent choice of wines and warm atmosphere, where you can sit down and quench your thirst with an icy-cold beer or your choice of drink and catch up with events on our real world TV on the big screen.

While we cater for backpackers, we also offer double, twin and family rooms. Some of the room are en-suite and come with fresh clean linen, towels and a snugly duvet. The dorm rooms each contain four or five beds and share the use of a bathroom.

We do not serve dinner or lunch but we would assist you in finding a restaurant. If you prefer to prepare your own food you are welcome to use our self-catering kitchen. We offer a choice of continental breakfast or cooked breakfast apart from the essential freshly brewed coffee, tea, toast and a variety of spreads.

We offer safe on-site parking in addition to a security guard on duty at the entrance. If you are looking for an affordable alternative to hotel accommodation, then you would like to have a look at sister accommodation establishment, the well-situated Dunedin Star.

Family friendly: Children's high chair available in the dining hall Cot bed available on request in family rooms

We booked there on the recommendation of a tour operator we had met, but were very disappointed in the accommodation which is very very basic. That said, on checking to see what we had paid, we realised that we had got what we had paid for!!! Our mistake! The breakfast they served was good.

On arrival in the afternoon, we found the staff using the lounge facilities.  When we went up to the bar, the staff were using the tv and we actually got the feeling that we were intruding on their tv watching and "kuiering" around the table.The carpet in front of the bed was so dirty I did not want to put my feet on it.

Old and worn furnishings, simple room, located in the former railway-station-road. Good location as within walking distance everything can be achieved.Friendly team and good service, nice bar, rustic furnished breakfast room with an old piano, which is unfortunately no longer working properly.

We had a lovely stay at the hostel. The room was big and even though only two of the four beds were taken it still felt spacey. It's in a nice area of Swakop with walking distance to everything. The receptionist Fabiola was very helpful! Helped us arrange activities that we wanted to do on our own.We overslept the breakfast by mistake, which was a shame because we heard it was yummy!Would definitely stay there again when in Swakop.

Lovely homey stay, everything you need and a great breakfast. Thank you! PS. The street is called Windhurter, not Windhoek, only blip in finding the place.
