I was here after a 14 days round-trip through Namibia to relax and of course enjoy the Windhoek life. The hostel is a nice place with many nice people and a nice pool. Definitely a big advantage for hot days. The whole hostel was clean and there were many helpful people. The owner is nice and helpful, but also the...

Clean and comfortable with lovely staff who go out of their way to look after their guests. Feels like a home not a hostel. Great neighbourhood, great swimming pool, and a lovely cat and dog who add to the homey vibe!

We (3 British guys cycling across Africa) had a really relaxing stay at the Paradisegarden Backpackers. It is functional, clean, affordable, and overall, very good value for money. The staff were also very friendly and provided us with fantastic travel advice. A number of pets (a beautiful dog and an affectionate cat) also add to the homely feel of this...

Quiet, home-y, friendly, clean hostel in a residential neighborhood in Windhoek, with comfortable bunks, cozy living room, and clean communal kitchen. For lounging, there is a front and rear patio, and the pool is great. The manager was very helpful in lending us a sleeping bag & mat for our trip around Namibia, and he leads hikes in the nearby...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Paradisegarden Backpackers is the place where you feel home from home! It is situated only 10 min walking distance from the city centre, situated in a Villa from the 50ties. We make you feel at home with a very heartily atmosphere so that many travellers have come back to stay longer. The huge pools invites for a real swimming work out. If you feel more lazy enjoy one of the terraces or the cosy lounge watching a movie. The owners can assist you finding the right route and way around Namibia and Africa, as they themselves have travelled extensively. ... more   less
