Overall for the price you can't really complain ! Food served at the hostel was really good, though did have to wait anywhere between 30 and 120 mins !! There was no electricity at all which was a challenge but there was local cyber cafés to charge electrical items and get internet access. The real winner is the location, within a 5 minute piki ride to Mtwapa town and being located on a beach ! Mosquito nets were provided however mine had so many holes in ! Bring your own !


The road to the hostel was dreadfull! But when you arrive it is beautiful! The place and atmosphere was great and the place great. The food was really good as well the service. The rooms where simple and had just the basics (a bed and a net). The common bathrooms where good and fairly clean. The security wasn't that good but the staff was very nice and helped keep our belongings locked up when we asked for it. All in all a great place at a affordable price.
