2/10 Poor

Decepción, no corresponde calidad-precio
Se trata de un alojamiento ubicado en las afueras de Swakopmund, está cerca del centro, andando unos 10-15 minutos Nos dieron una habitación familiar, la numero 2, en la planta baja. Una habitación muy oscura, con salida al jardín compartido por todos con lo que todas las noches se escuchaba el ruido exterior constantemente. Personas con la música, haciendo ruido a todas horas. La limpieza de la habitación justa, con restos de líquidos en la pared y del espacio común también justo. El agua de la ducha fría

6/10 Good

Nette Unterkunft und sehr freundliche Gastgeberin. Ich war anscheinend der einzige Gast und das Backpackers wirkte daher etwas ausgestorben. Anfangs gab es im Badezimmer kein Wasser und ich wurde morgens um 7 Uhr durch Bauarbeiten geweckt. Leider wurde ich vor meinem Aufenthalt nicht auf die Bauarbeiten Bzw. den Lärm aufmerksam gemacht.
