Very Good

The guy looking after the place is amazing😀 The guy who owns the place and manages the bookings is a disaster!! Several people reserved the same ‘standard double bed’ at the same time. Luckily the adjoining 4 bed dormitory( not advertised in Hostelworld) was not fully occupied. If you want security of booking do not trust the staff to manage it. DISASTER 🥴🥴

We loved our stay at the serene abode! We ended up adding on to our stay. We both speak Swahili and ended up talking to Kassim (caretaker) so much and he is absolutely wonderful. The location is also great, right behind Lukmaan’s restaurant. Would recommend to anyone :)

Very centrally located. Basic but very clean accommodation with good hot shower. Kasim was amazing in making sure we had everything we needed. Basic breakfast but more than enough and always cooked for when we wanted. Would fully recommend. It can be a little hard to find but the host made sure they met us even at 4am after our flight. Thanks for everything!
