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 Nairobi Xfm. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and can help you organise both tours of Nairobi and longer tours in Kenya. I would advise against taking the taxis organised by reception - the set rates tend to be more expensive than those you can negotiate for yourself. This is less convenient however. Overall, as backpackers go, an excellent experience and I will return next time I'm in Nairobi.
