This place is clean and nice, probably the best place to meet backpackers. The bar/restaurant is nice. The staff is friendly and bar plays good jams, and they have a nice dog called scooby. You can get hot showers if there is electricity.

When we first arrived, the staff were lovely and friendly and made us feel right at home. We had originally booked to stay in a "permanent tent" but after seeing they were literally no more than a tent, upgraded to a double cabin, which they were happy to do. The food was cheap and decent, as were the drinks, and... More

I stayed in the Milimani Backpackers for total of 6 nights and had a great time with both employes and other guests. There was a nice mix between guests of 1-2 days and others staying for longer. Only price I heard cheaper in Nairobi was a "brothel", so also here the Backpackers is a fine choise. If you are a... More

We had booked because in general it had received ok reviews. In reality i found it completly different. The staff were lovely and friendly when they were trying to get us to book trips and excursions with them but as soon as they found out we had booked much cheaper alternatives they literally said that we could only stay one...

I stayed in Milimani Backpackers for two nights over a weekend, and it was the perfect base for a quick exploration of Nairobi. Dorms are very clean and comfortable, and a towel is provided. The outside bar/restaurant area is an excellent place to relax over a beer and some simple, filling and inexpensive food, and plays excellent music courtesy of... More

Milimani really contributed to my experience in Nairobi. The staff are exceptional, and I loved that they have a good restaurant outside where everyone gathers for dinner each night. It was easy to meet other travelers of all ages and share travel stories. I went on a safari to the Masai Mara, which I booked through the hostel, and it... More

There are not many options in the budget category in Nairobi. The room was very small--bunkbeds with very little room even for your pack. The atmosphere is friendly and congenial. WiFi was there but did not work most of the time. The restaurant/bar area was convenient for quick breakfast (not included-not expensive) but not great. I would recommend Milimani because... More
