We found it difficult to find midrange accommodation in Nairobi. Hartebeest charges 40 USD on booking.com for a double with shared toilet/bathroom. The place has a hostel feel, with at least one dorm room, and two toilets plus one (hot) shower in the main building. Value wise it was the pick of the bunch, although with hindsight it would have been better and cheaper to camp at one of the handful of overlander friendly places in town. The place seems to be run by one poor woman, who juggled cooking, serving and front desk duties (we waited an hour for an average and pricey dinner). Rooms are basic and beds are clean. There is free and decent wifi, which is a big plus.
