When you travel on a budget, your standards are pretty low. A bed with clean sheets, a mosquito net with no holes and a clean bathroom. This place was below average. Bedding is clean, but the sheet is a bit small and once you try to sleep on it, a gross matress appears. Gross. I was stuggling all night not... More

sooper guest house is a little, cheap hotel in the centre of Kisumu. Its a nice place to stay if you dont want to spend to much, the people who work there are really sweet and its close to the lake, the shops, the park and the clubs. i think its the perfect place for backpackers!

We really enjoyed our two night stay at Sooper. The beds were nice, the room was clean and and it had a good-working fan. The rooftop isn't anything fancy but it has great views of the city and the lake. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a little bit noisy because of the echoy courtyard but had a... More

I was here as part of a larger group and stayed for three weeks plus a few other weekends. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The rooms were nice with ensuite bathrooms. The road can be noisy at night but they also have a great rooftop area.

The rooms are clean and quite small but enough for travellers like us. There is a TV as well and internet but we struggled a lot with internet which stopped in the afternoon and never worked again till the day after. Otherwise really nice roof top and well located regarding good restaurants and "beach". We would come again if we... More

Wasn't expecting much given the prices we paid for the rooms, and I wasn't disappointed. It was genuinely a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were small but adequate, with an en-suite and even a little DSTV going on as well. I'd have expected that the mosquito nets would have their full quota of netting intact, but alas, it was... More

The Sooper guest house, is quite super. The security is good, whilst I was staying there, they were putting in new CCTV. Also there is a guard at the bottom of the stairs outside in the street, and one at the top of the stairs in the lobby. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The guest house is very... More

This guesthouse was very clean and welcoming. The staff and owner were very helpful with giving travel tips to kakamega forest. It was also safe. We forgot our cell phone and a few other things in our room when we left for kakamega, and when we got back they had it all safe for us. The owner was a very... More
