Very good and manager very helpful. You should be aware that there is no door for privacy between the bedroom and the toilet which could be a concern

Not really recommended to stay in Walvis Bay, since it's not very "dynamic" and Amjicaja (such as all other guesthouses) is a very very residential area. Not very entertaining area.

A beautiful stop at Walvis bay. It has been very nice to stay here, in touch with a gently namibian family. They gave us many useful information about restaurants, applepies in Solitaire. A guesthouse where we would return....
