It has been many years since I last stayed at a hostel and after my extended stay at the Cardboard Box I would heartily reommend it to anyone passing through Windhoek. The staff have been attentive and friendly, the other guests a diverse and entertaining bunch and Chad the Owner is always ready to ensure that the Braai is lit or the music is turned up or down according to the mood. Having free wifi, charging points throughout the bar and reception area, the cool and clean pool and the laundry facilities have all consipired to keep me here longer than I expected. If you are looking to find others to travel with or book a trip to the desert, the Cardboard Box seems to be able to cater to all types of travellers. To address the points made by other commenters about toilets or noise, I can say that the blame really must fall on some of the guests who are not always particularly respectful of their fellow travellers or the facilities. I my experience, the Cardboard Box is great value, a great location and oone of the best vibes I have experienced while travelling. I hope they keep it up for years and look forward to coming back!
