This is not the place to stay if you want the usual backpackers experience of rowdy drinking games, late nights and late mornings and keeping company with like minded western travellers. However, if you want to get a taste of a different side of Kenya, Safina hostel is ideal. It is located on the same site as a children's home,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Safina is a clean, safe women's hostel connected to the Wema centre Trust home for girls in Mombasa.

Also great for those with a social conscience as money raised by the hostel goes directly to support the good work of the Wema Trust. ... more   less
