Ilived and worked here as a VSO in 1967/8.
I was so thrilled to return. The staff were very friendly and eager to help. Never once did I feel anyone was taking advantage of me financially. All were trying hard make my stay just what I wanted. Asd usual I found some fascinating people staying there and had some unique conversations with discerning peoplke who woul;dnt dream of wsting money on a rather superficial "glamour hotel" . Everything here was peacefdul;e, simple ,local and wholesome. Only the room decor and furniture (which was just the same as 1967 but with the wear and tear 44 years brings. I wish I had time to volunteer and decorate each room one at a time!
Well done YMCA Wewll done Kenya -I am so proud of you! See the real Nairobi stay at YMCA Centraql!
