    Really awesome hostel located walking distance from Nairobi CBD. Beds are comfy, staff are helpful, and amenities are good. Usually sit around the fire at night with a few beers. No complaints here.

    You are in Africa. Perfectly fine hostel for this region, you get all you need clean and simple. Don't compare this to hostels in Europe.

    What a kind staff if i had to remember only one thing. This hostel is located in a safe and touristic area with other hotels, don't expect western style facilities, everything was modest, but my stay was quite pleasant.

    A good spot to stay a few nights in nairobi, close enough to everything by uber - which is easy to use. The staff are lovely and it's value for money. The place is kept tidy but bathrooms had mould etc i didnt mind so much as its simply a good place to rest your head at the end of the day

    I liked this hostel, it's basic but has a nice vibe and it's a great place to meet other backpackers in the common room or around the campfire. The staff were friendly and the whole place seems very secure. More plug sockets in the dorms would be good and the female dorm shower could use a renovation, but there was always hot water. Nice to have a simple but filling breakfast included on the price. I would stay here again if I'm passing through Nairobi.

    Very Good

    This is probably the only decent hostel in all of Nairobi, which as a city doesn't really have a hostel culture at all. The rooms and facilities are pretty cheap, simple and a tad dirty (as one would expect in the one and only hostel in a city.) It's the only place in Nairobi that I found other backpackers, most of whom were only staying for 1-2 nights. The outdoor fire pit was a great social space. The beds are pretty standard and not too comfortable. The showers have great water pressure.

    Very Good

    Nothing really special, could be partially because I was there at the end of the rainy season. Had bed bugs in one bed, moved to a second one and then was better. Then again it's Africa and I don't know if you'll find anything better in the area. Staff was excellent and always very warm.

    I arrived late and they let me in and checked me in, there were small lockers available, but I was not shown these. The hostel is gated off from the street, but room doors are easily opened by anyone on the site. The toilets and especially the showers were not of a good standard and are used by all. Location was a walking distance from the centre although the nearby area is empty of anything and may not be the best area for all to walk around in.
