This is an old building transformed into a hostel. The location is fine - close to a mall and just out of the center. A taxi takes about 5 minutes to the center if there are no traffic jams (rarely). You can probably walk downtown as well. The room we stayed in had 3 beds and another was provided so our family of 4 could easily stay in the room. This room also had a private bathroom with a hot shower.
The only problem was the sleep quality during the weekend when there was a loud party in a center in vicinity. On other nights it was calm and sleeping quite ok.
The staff is very helpful.
For the price we paid I give it a positive. If we return to Nairobi we would probably choose it again.
