          I spend at the Chameleon Backpacker one night. The dinner was ok. Too expansive for that what you 've got. The transfer to the airport was also much expansive. Nevertheless the rooms were clean and the pool area was also quite relaxed.

          Nice place to stay in Windhoek, meet people and rest. We stayed in an very nice private accommodation, with excellent value for money. Breakfast is simple and you prepare it yourself, but it's really good. Would certainly be back.
