    Good place! I plan to stay there the next time I'm in Nairobi. The staff are lovely and really helpful. Accommodations are pretty basic, but clean and functional. The compound felt pretty secure, with a wall/gate and night guard, (though I wish they had lockers). The free breakfast in the morning was nice. When I was there, the guests were social and lively, but it wasn't a loud party hostel.

    I had a brief but very hospitable stay at Manyatta Backpackers. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Sometimes it's hard for Uber drivers to find the location as there is no actual address with number, but I think that's for most places in Nairobi. It was plenty quiet at night, no traffic noise. The hostel is gated, I felt safe my whole time there.

    Decent place to stay close to town. Hot water wasn't working.

    I only stayed one night but it was great! Super comfy and warm beds, good wifi, nice outdoor area for free breakfast, the bathroom is a bit older but everything works (and warm shower!), no lockers in the rooms but I felt safe leaving most of my stuff lying around, the staff was really nice (she woke up early to make me breakfast for my early departure), I can't speak to the social vibe much, but the common room area has a nice couch and table for hanging out a bit.

    Perfect location. Great place to meet other travellers. Staff is super helpful in booking excursions. Free breakfast and super cheap dinner (~1.50 USD) Dorms were pretty standard for the price, but the bathrooms were in bad shape with holes/rotting wood in the floors and just not very clean.

    Stayed one night. It did the job for the stay but the place is in desperate need of some TLC. There were missing floorboards in the bathroom and the toilet didn't work.

    This place is pretty true to the previous reviews. It is very run down and dirty, with holes in the floor and no hot water. It certainly isn’t a place to get excited about. But on the plus side, the dinner is cheap and it is a good place for meeting other guests.

    Holes in the floor, making you feel like you will be sharing 6 bed dorm with unexpected animals, mattresses being changed last time in 80-90th as the you just sinking in the middle like there was an elephant asleep for the past 5 years. But staff is super friendly, they make vegetarian dinner every night and place in general seems like centre for people that comes to party to Nairobi.

    It's a budget spot for sure. The staff are nice and the location is good but the physical place leaves a bit to be desired. I'd recommend it for those who are rough and ready travelers.

    This hostel has some of the nicest workers. The lady at the reception was friendly and so was the security guard. My biggest issue with this hotel was the facility and the water works great. The bed I assigned was in the worst condition. It was old and in need of replacement. The mattress grooved in the center making it feel like a valley. THE WORST part was when I found a BED BUG in the evening after using the restroom. I packed immediately and left.
