    Such a fantastic spot for backpackers in Nakuru. Sure it isn't a dorm room style but if you come alone you can enjoy some rare privacy or share the room (and price) if you're with friends. Either way you can meet other backpackers, the amazing host family, or Kenyan travellers in the family dining room. The TV and shared kitchen is a great way to interact, learn about the area and culture. I thoroughly enjoyed my week at Sleepway Cottages. The location is also very handy.

    Super ! We felt instantly welcomed by the staff, who were kind and helpful - even organising a safari for us last minute as well as giving other recommendations. The room was clean cosy and homely ( the hot water always worked woo!) And the location was ideal for us. We felt safe at all times and if we went back to Nakuru we would definitely stay again :) ( my partner and I stayed 3 nights )

    Basic room with ensuite bathroom, hot showers, and free breakfast. About a 10 minute drive to the park. A great place to stay if you're not looking for luxury and just want to go enjoy Lake Nakuru and the surrounding area. Simon, the owner, was very friendly and offered to book us any tours or transportation we wanted. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Nakuru.

    Good location in Nakuru town, outside of the busy city center and close to the National Park. Friendly staff and good beds. Pretty basic bathrooms though

    Great staff, very hospitable. Great food and dinner whenever we went in to ask. Make sure to try the chicken dinner! Inthe morning we haphazardly asked about safaris and within 45 minutes Simon set us up with a Nakuru national park safari with Peter, an awesome game driver and guide. For a great price too. Room conditions are a bit wanting, but we’re a budget couple who doesn’t need too much. A toilet seat on the toilet would have been nice though. Internet also cut out after the first day.

    Very Good

    Sleepway Cottages is an okay place to stay when in Nakuru. It is quite secure as the entrances to the rooms are from a gated garden, and it was nice that breakfast was provided. We also met the owner of the place, Simon, who gladly organised and led a private trip to the Lake Nakuru National Park on a short notice. However, the hostel definitely needs some more care. The rooms were not entirely clean, the toilet was missing a seat and the shower heating element was giving off sparks.

    Located outside of the center on a dusty road not far from the lake. Pretty quiet place with good, included breakfast (despite earlier reviews, yes breakfast IS included in the 2100 KHS price), hot shower, and very dirty/moldy bathroom walls. The staff were not so welcoming upon my arrival but they warmed up to me. I really liked Nakuru overall though - and the location of the guesthouse is a good one from which you can explore.

    Host was very welcoming and helpful, organising a safari last minute and providing general advice for exploring town. Shower looked like an electrocution waiting to happen. Bed was decent.

    Very disappointed. Toilets were broken, shower didn't work, area was very sketchy... Not worth the price at all.
