Mombasa Train Station to Stilts Backpackers

Hey there - any tips for getting from Mombasa train station Stilts Backpackers?

If taxi - how much is a reasonable price?

If bus - where/how much do you think?

Thanks!

You can go via matatu or taxi. By matatu necessitates getting one to ferry, one to Ukunda and one to Diani. Cheap but time-consuming. A taxi is quicker and after a night on the train probably the easiest option. Maybe 2-3,000 shillings.

Sawa sawa... thanks!

After 2.5 months here, my taxi negotiating has gotten quite good - I'll aim for 2,000! ;)

From Moi International airport to Diani the most you should pay is Ksh4700, so Ksh3500-4000 is probably the price from the station to Stilts. Drivers will argue that they have to take ferry delays into account. Don't be bamboozled!
