“Great food, decent rooms, lively young atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2010

We spent a few nights here whilst travelling through Nairobi and we loved it. The rooms are a little bit dearer than other places in the area but they are spacious and they have hot showers (very rare!). The food was brilliant and loads of choice but were of a similar to price to what you would pay in the UK so are more expensive than other eating places in the city centre. Although the location isn't great, its easy to make your way to the centre by mutatu (public bus) for just a few pence, and the lively young atmosphere at Upperhill means there's no reason to go out at night.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2009

Run by a great group of people and always filled with a great mix of travelers from all over the world and all ages. Good restaurant and great bar. There are many options of where to stay, rooms, dorm, cabins/bandas, furnished tents with electricity, basic tents, or you can just pitch your own! All are great options. The compound is beautiful and there is a comfy fireplace with couches and a TV for relaxing nights... the fireplace is great on some of those cold Nairobi Nights. This is where I always stay when going into Nairobi.

The staff can also assist you in any of your needs as far as booking tours, finding your way through Nairobi and finding the best activities to do- no matter what you want to do- they know someone who can arrange it for you at a good price.
