I stayed at this hostel in February of 2015. It is located inside a gated community and I felt very safe at all times. The free breakfast is excellent and the staff goes well out of there way to make sure that you are comfortable and taken care of. It is within walking distance of the city center and very... More

I stayed here for one night in between flights. It's ok, some of the rooms don't feel very secure (I had to ask to be moved) and the bathrooms are terrible - hardly any water pressure, cold showers, toilets that only flush some of the time, taps that have so little water coming from them you can't even wash your...

The Reservation Manager, Zipporah, was very helpful for organizing group safaris, which included only parks that I was interested in seeing. The safari prices seemed reasonable and what was promised to us as being included was delivered. The staff seemed to be friendly. Wifi was very poor and as it was constantly going down. Having said that, don't expect quality... More

Some of the friendliest and most helpful staff, always going that extra mile (e.g. organised an airport pickup at 1am). Very good option if you need to be near the airport. Comfortable enough but bring some anti-mosquito stuff to be on the safe side - lots of mosquitoes, though good condition nets are provided.

We stayed just one night between arrival to Nairobi and start of safari. We did not leave the place because it was 11pm and safari was picking us up at 7am. It is dirty, frightening and far from airport. Our ensuite bathroom was in the balcony which door did not close. It is very noisy at night due to proximity... More

Before deciding to stay in this stopover house, we (group of 6 adults and 3 kids) were contemplating to either sleeping in Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta airport or to choose this house. It is because we will arrive at Nairobi airport around 2 am and will start our safari trip at 8 am the same day. However, after discussing further among... More
