We spent four nights in total at the outpost, two before our Kili trek, one after our trek and another are our safari. We stayed in a different room on each occasion and they were all furnished and decorated differently. Our first day we arrived in the morning and had to wait for our room to be available but we expected that and waited in the cafe and had what was a very decent coffee. We had to ask for toilet paper because our room had none but we put that down to them making haste to ready our room. The mosquito net over the bed was huge, we had a working flat screen TV. The shower was a bit disappointing, it took a bit of fiddling to get the right mix of hot and cold and there wasn't a lot of pressure. This was found to be the standard everywhere we stayed in Africa so I wouldn't say it was a huge negative.
The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, especially in the cafe and as helpful as they could be. We had some issues with checking in when we got back from our trek and they couldn't find our booking which could an hour of drama but they sorted it out with our guide.
We were able to store our excess luggage when we went on our Kili trek and put our valuables in the safe and had no dramas with either. Don't do this at the last minute as you need to sign it all in so it can take five minutes or so.
The food at the cafe was hit and miss. The Chinese and Indian food we had was awesome but the "western" food was bit average. Definitely try the Indian food.

You can walk into town, to the Maasai markets. Overall, a nice central location that suited our needs and purpose.
There's a new block right next to the kitchen area that looks fancy. We didn't stay there bu...
