Excellent staff who are ready and willing to help you every second. They arranged budget safaris to multiple parks with only a few hours notice! They have plenty of connections with agencies, drivers, and locals who can accommodate your every need. We did 2 day trip safaris, in which they even packed us a lunch,, and a Nairobi walking tour. They have lockers but you need to bring your own lock.


Milimani Backpackers is by far the best budget accommodation I have stayed in in Nairobi. The staff really go out of their way to make you feel welcome, there's a great communal area, the location is ideal (in a safe area, around 30 mins walk from the city centre and on the right side of town for the airport), and the internet connection is fantastic (which is definitely not the case in most budget hostels!). The only thing which could improve the experience is plug sockets in the dorm rooms.


Had a really good stay at Milimani. Safe and secure, wifi worked well and staff got me a discount at the famous Carnivore restaurant - I'd stay again if going through Nairobi.
