“The home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Having spent two months traveling around East Africa, I had quite the task of finding a place to stay each night. In my time in all of Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda, I never found a place as welcoming, fun, and incredibly safe as Manyatta Backpackers. Located within walking distance of downtown Nairobi, you are given breakfast, WIFI, warm showers, and running toilets (something you will rarely find in most hostels) in the area. The wonderful people that own the hostel genuinely want to make the most of your stay and will go out of their way to make anyone feel comfortable. I couldn't possibly rave enough about this establishment. You won't regret staying here!
