    Great place to stay and meet other people travelling in Kenya. Purity was super lovely and helped us to arrange our train to Mombassa the night before it was due to leave. We even got to have breakfast earlier to make sure we ate before our long journey! Will definitely stay here again if we pass through Nairobi during our travels! Would recommend 100%

    Nice central location. They can help you organizing safaris although i think you can get a better deal at a different agency. It was an ok place but I was not amazed.

    TL;DR: A no-frills backpackers hostel with safari booking. Great staff. Avoid the single rooms. Dorms or double rooms are fine. Pros: The staff! Purity and Esther were helpful and welcoming. Bonfire fire every evening. The dorm style rooms are a MUCH better deal than the singles and were indoors in a proper building. Cons: I stayed in a single room, which was very small and shack-like. The room opened up on the parking area which was loud with cars and exhaust. Not good.

    Esther is a STAR worker and helps with every job there from receptionist to cleaner to kitchen cook to organising your train and travel tickets. However, the hostel is the most basic of basic hostels that I have ever stayed in anywhere in the World. Don't book the separate rooms outside - at night no lighting, travelling through the wet mud to go to the ONE toilet at the other side of the building is no joke when there is no toilet paper when you get there. Big hole in the dorm floor. DON'T GO!

    Email does not work, wrong phone number, staff do not know the checkout time, mosquitos in bedroom with no mosquitos nets, possible bed bugs, could not take shower due it being under construction... These are only some of things I can remember at this time...
