About Element Riders Backpacker Hostel!

Element Riders Place in Lüderitz Namibia is the affordable accommodation choice for the adventure sports traveler, the backpacker, the visitor and tourist on a budget.We offer self-catering accommodation for groups or families, single, double or group rooms, dormitories; all to suit your budget and requirements.

We offer four rooms with shared bathroom facilities and we offer three rooms with an en-suite shower and toilet. A fully equipped kitchen and mobile braai/barbeque is available. We have a lounge with book-exchange and one with TV (full DSTV).

We provide simple, yet comfortable and cleanly facilities and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Daily housekeeping, free parking and free Wi-Fi is of course included. Please note that the lounges, the kitchen, the dining area and the bathrooms (for the rooms that don't have bathrooms en-suite) are upstairs!

The backpackers is situated in the heart of the town but in a quite side road. Supermarkets, tourist information, restaurants, coffee shops and famous landmarks are reachable by foot. Lüderitz itself is a interesting little town and the perfect place to relax. It is in the "middle of nowhere", 125 km away from the next village. It's surrounding is a very rough and interesting landscape, lonely beaches with tough flora and wildlife. Enjoy a trip to the unique beaches, lagoons and fjords in your car and stand the famous strong Lüderitz' wind. Also a visit to the ghost town of Kolmanskop, the many interesting beaches and fjords or a dolphin and penguin boat tour are great things to do in Luderitz!

Please note the following important information: Although we try our best to keep everything clean, if the wind blows (as it does a lot in Luderitz) there will be dust, there will be some sand in the windows and all kinds of things blowing through the yards. Our establishment is NOT a hotel; there is no reception desk, no portier to carry your bags, but Virgina and Queen will give their best to make you feel home. Please note: Both also help the guests at the Guesthouse, and due to this they are not always on-site but always reachable.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
