"Affordable" Place to Stay


Since February I had this dream I would spend September 19 - 21 at the Wildebeeste in Nairobi. The reviews I'd read were wonderful. It sounded quiet, safe and, most of all, was affordable in terms of my missionary budget.

Unfortunately, that dream is not to be.

Does anyone know of a place (akin to what they offer) close to public transportation that is affordable? (They have a single room posted at $21.)

If you know of a place, please let me know.

It would sure be nice to spend the only break I'll have this year somewhere nice.

Thank you.

Not sure what the problem is. . . Too expensive? Or not avaialble?

Milimani backpackers is popular and a bit cheaper than Wildebeest (www.milimanibackpackers.com). Or there's Upper Hill Campsite, which is roughly the same (both do singles for around $12–15) www.upperhillcampsite.com.

Hope that helps,
