If anyone is traveling to and/or through Kenya/Nairobi, I highly recommend staying at the Upperhill Campsite. I just came back from a 2 week Africa journey and had the pleasure of stumbling across the Upperhill Campsite in Nairobi. I am not sure how exactly I found out about it as I had full intentions of staying at a different location... More

After spending 2 of 3 nights at B&B's, I decided to try something new. Upper Hill Campsite is in a great location, close to shopping and offering a quiet place to stay in the heart of the city. I opted for a small 2 man tent (which came with clean mattress and fresh linens), which for the price of 600Ksh/night,... More

The place is hustling and bustling with travellers so if you are travelling on your own theres great possibility to make friends. Good points - The food was cheap; there were plentiful showers although they were definatley cold despite the signs... More

Basic and cheap, great service. Ratio of showers to beds rather low and gets noisy with groups.

A great campsite. I stayed in a banda - very comfortable and clean. Facilities were clean and hot showers too. Very friendly staff & guests - good social scene. Nice bar - good fun. Well worth the running man symbol in the rough guide.

The place is very green and have hot showers (which I doubt if you will find in other places with this price). The food in... More

We spent a few nights here whilst travelling through Nairobi and we loved it. The rooms are a little bit dearer than other places in the area but they are spacious and they have hot showers (very rare!). The food was brilliant and loads of choice but were of a similar to price to what you would pay in the... More

Run by a great group of people and always filled with a great mix of travelers from all over the world and all ages. Good restaurant and great bar. There are many options of where to stay, rooms, dorm, cabins/bandas, furnished tents with electricity, basic tents, or you can just pitch your own! All are great options. The compound is... More
