“Our home in Nairobi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have nothing but good things to say about Manyatta's! I traveled with a group of friends throughout Kenya and we'd return to Nairobi a number of times and each time, we stayed at Manyatta's. Such wonderful hospitality and warmth from every single person that works there!

The rooms are nice and clean. The beds the most comfortable I slept on in Africa! So awesome. And the rooms (especially the communal area) is just decorated so brightly and beautifully. Campire outside was also great for getting to know the other travelers staying at the hostel.

Short walk to Uhuru Park and the city centre.

Love, love, love Manyatta's!! Our home in Nairobi!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

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!
