We stayed at the upperhill campsite on our several stopovers in Nairobi whilst travelling around the country this Summer. The place is hustling and bustling with travellers so if you are travelling on your own theres great possibility to make friends.
Good points - The food was cheap; there were plentiful showers although they were definatley cold despite the signs outside; cheap rooms which made the cost of our trip significantly lower; location is out of the centre which I personally would say is well worth avoiding; great to have you day planned for you, the backpackers had set prices and recommended places to visit. As well as visiting the obvious (David Sheldrick and Giraffe sanctury) I highly reccommend visiting Kitengela Glass, make sure you get a guided tour from the guy who mans the scary bridge its a real gem!!
Bad points; We stayed in a cabin rather than the dorms, they were cold, extremely basic, could be noisy if lots of groups were about and the beds were uncomfortable; the food may well be cheap which is great after a busy/expensive day but quite often it wasn't great food; on one occassion we were messed about by one of the associated taxis drivers which lost us an entire day but this was one occasion.
Overally a good place as long as your only staying for one or two nights (max) any longer i'd much reccomend finding somewhere nice and comfortable.
