This place is great value for money as it included breakfast! They only thing I would say is the dorm tents should perhaps have a padlock on them to make the rooms a little more secure and also the bunk beds did not have ladders so getting to the top bunk in the dark was a bit of a hassle. The facilities are great and it is a lovely laid back feeling.
Wildebeest is by far the best budget accommodation in Nairobi. The only slight drawback is the location. It's nearly impossible to get to/from here without a taxi (at least the staff made it seem that way) and the taxis the front desk will call for you are rather expensive and price is non-negotiable. So, while it is very cheap to stay in the dorms, make sure to budget quite a lot for transportation (at least 1000 Ksh per taxi ride). It was very cold at night too so to bring warm pajamas.
So far from anything, they say 20min to town but with traffic it's actually 2hrs! Staff in kitchen nice when I could find them but reception was super rude. When I asked about tours he said they were probably too expensive for me! Well he was right totally overpriced! The grounds and tents are rather nice though. The little kid that lives there was also rude telling me I weighed too much for the trampoline, Geeze.
The atmosphere here is very peaceful and beautiful. The dorms aren't too bad. Wife and food are both good as well.
