Really good place and the staff are super friendly and sorted out my climb up Mount Kenya which was perfect. My only main criticism of this place was that I thought it was expensive for what you get ($15 for a dorm, the most I paid for a dorm on my trip)... however having said that I had just come from Ethiopia where everything is cheaper and I know Kenya is more expensive. Other than that this place is very good. They organised my climb as I said and my guide Paul was brilliant, friendly and had perfect english. The food is basic but its cheap and pretty tasty and they keep you safe in a town that has a dubious reputation. I went back after my climb and would go back again.
