The B&B is very special. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection is huge and very good. Every morning we got fresh bread rolls from the bakery. The rooms are very individual. Ours had a bath tub outdoors. Unfortunately the bed was a little bit short. It is a nice experience for bed & breakfast lovers!

This place is really value for money. It has nice gardens and very interesting rooms with great use of space. A nice kitchen that you can use, unlimited tea with great variety, a large breakfast option (though it is make your own eggs and bacon). The hosts are very friendly and live just 2 doors down, available whenever you need...

What a stunning place. Sybille and Frenus are excellent and welcoming hosts. Frenus built the place himself and it's truly something to experience... hidden rooms and places to explore. Not for the prude or easily embarrassed though, as naturism and a sense of the erotic abounds in the artwork and architecture and the place boasts an outdoor public shower should...

We really enjoyed our stay here - quirky architect designed rooms, really welcoming hosts, 'do it yourself breakfast' with everything you want (except a non-stick pan for eggs). There is a bit of artistic nudity on the walls, but all very tasteful! We had an amazing room with a free-standing bath in the middle. Log fire, honesty bar ..... electric...

2 days was not enough at this incredible, unique property. Unlike anywhere I've ever stayed, in a very good way! My room was amazing: huge, shower and freestanding bathtub (with bubble bath included). Can you imagine anything more relaxing than a hot bubble bath after a day of adrenaline-filled activities in chilly Swakop? And the owners are true masters of...

Alternative Space is an incredibly chilled out oasis of relaxation in Swakopmund. It is extremely cosy, has got spacious rooms, very generous and welcoming owners, 24/7 food and tea/coffee and an all-round great vibe. Highly recommended!

The Alternative Space is not right in the center of Swakop but an awesome alterntative to all of the B&Bs and guesthouses there. Firstly, Sibylle and Frenus are the best hosts you could wish for. Everything worked out nicely for us: correspondence, chats, insight from locals. Secondly, the rooms are absolutely charming - all of them a bit different but...

This is a fantastic guesthouse. It's clean and comfortable with interesting art and architecture. The room was absolutely beautiful, with high ceilings and lovely decor. Everything worked well and it seemed that everything was thought of -- there are plenty of towels, bubble bath for the wonderful bathtub, and even a little bottle of sparkling wine to welcome guests to...
