It is a very good hostel to stay for one or two days in Nairobi. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the restaurant is very cheap but good. The included breakfast is one pancake and a banana and a very bad cup of tea or coffee. Wifi is very good.


Terri was great, very helpful and great sense of humour.


The staff made me feel welcome. Though it might not be easy to find the hostel when I first arrived in Nairobe, it is just a 15 minute walk to city centre. The homemade meals are delicious and reasonably priced.


Excellent WIFI , staff was very helpful

make sure to bring your own mosquito-net, cause there are none in the rooms. And because the hostel is located in a damp area, there where quite of lot of mosquitos, also inside the rooms. The staff was helpful and the little bar in the courtyard was cosy.
