We spent one night here after getting a bus from Uganda. The bus was delayed and we arrived at 3am, after our driver had great difficulty in finding the place. It had moved location again and was not obvious where it was. We had also not been informed that they had moved. Considering we had phoned ahead to tell them... More

After travelling much around Kenya, i stayed at the hostel it pretty decent and was a short walking distance to the town center. the staff were really helpful and the price was much cheaper than most hostels in Nairobi, i also had a chance to meet up with fellow travellers in a nice and comfy atmosphere.

This place is AWESOME... the staff is great, the accomodation and everything, you are 5 minutes away from one of the Nairobi malls, you just have to call in order to get a reference of the location... but after that, I don't have anything else to say... 100% recommended

I was really positively surprised by this place. The rooms are pretty basic; you can choose a dormbed for approx 14 dollars a day or a privat room for 35 dollars (which is a better deal if you're more than one since you get your own room with a key) and the toilets are decent - there are three big...

The new Milimani Backpackers in Nairobi is a great stay. The hostel has moved into a spacious, clean and modern house. Great and affordable food readily available, wi-fi works, and not too noisy. If you are going around the time of this review, make sure to call ahead and ask for directions - lots of road work with detours in... More

Was only there for one night before leaving for safari but the place was pretty central (only a 10/15 minute walk to central nairobi) and it was clean with friendly staff. Wouldn't rave about it especially as it was a little bit pricey for Kenya, but definitely a safe place to stay for a short period of time in NBO.

A nice, secure place in Nairobi. The staff is mostly nice and helpful, especially the kitchen staff. Good food, but it can be found cheaper in town. I slept in the 8 person dorm, beds are nice, but the rooms are a bit small. All in all it was a good experience
