I backpacked through East Africa for two months and Manyatta Backpackers was my transition, go to place. I started calling it my home away from home and with good reason too! The owner and staff are really nice. I always felt welcomed, safe, and comfortable!
You get a free breakfast when you stay there, which was always yummy. They even have free Wifi, which is rare. It is communal bathrooms (single stalls). Sometimes the water wasn't the warmest, but truly that is my only complaint.
It is also not to far away from downtown Nairobi. I always walked from the hostel and it took maybe 10 minutes.
I also used the safari service to go to the Elephant Orphanage!
