“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Nothing really special beyond a shopping mall. Owned by a very corrupt man from the old government. But, a nice break from the hustle of the city. Parking is a little tricky, but not too bad.

Good secure mall with eateries, supermarket, cash machines, souvenirs, camera store. Very similar to western countries for those traveling and needing restock supplies.

“Thoroughly enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Really liked this shopping centre. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Appreciated the food stores, the Java House, the Bata shoe store.and especially the high quality Bookstop bookstore! We have never seen such a quality collection of books for sale, particularly the Africa section. Many were university level texts that, according to the proprietor, more professors than students come to buy. Very impressive!

“Yaya Centre - Hurlingham, Nairobi, Kenya”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a very good shopping mall, but very difficult to get parking during the day - so, unless you are going by taxi, be prepared to go round and round looking for parking!!

“One Stop Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I found the place very nice with an exquisite finish. It has a myriad of shops where you can buy anything from classy jewelry, clothes, gifts, souvenirs and even gym equipment. It also has a bureau de change with competitive rates. It's definitely an upscale shopping center.
