Between Bach and Beethoven streets, Backpacker Unite in Greig Street is about ten minutes' walk from the centre. The zebra-striped exterior walls may be appealing, but the razor wire hanging from them certainly isn't. This is a rather soulless establishment, with simple, clean rooms and four bathrooms. Visitors can use the pool and sauna, and there is a pool table, too.
The place is run by Hermann and Erica Viljoen. Hermann offers a free pick-up service within the city, and also runs one- and two-night trips to Sossusvlei (N$1,330/N$1,600) which depart on Saturday, and two-night trips to Etosha (N$1,400) departing on Tuesdays.
