A couple of friends and I are backpacking from Cairo to Capetown and Nairobi was one of our stops. We decided to give this place a try due to the great reviews and Wildebeest did not disappoint. We stayed in the dorms here mostly and spent one night in the luxury group tent. The dorms only cost about 14 USD a person, which is a great price for a place of this quality. First off, this place is beautiful. There are numerous amounts of flowers, plants, and trees scattered throughout. The people, the owners are both very nice people. The bathrooms and dorms are cleaned daily. The security here is very high, never once did I feel like my things would be stolen. The food is very good, breakfast is included, and fairly priced for the city. The taxi's are a bit on the high end but for the price of the rooms, it evens out. The only issue about this place is that it is quite far from the city center. A taxi ride to the city center from Wildebeest will down you about 1500 schillings, but if you go with multiple people or don't have a big need to go to the city center, its not a big deal. The location is good in my opinion because it is off the road, which means it is safer than most places, and it is close to the Galleria, which is a pretty big mall where you can buy groceries or other daily essential needs. They even have a bookstore there! Overall, this place is amazing! I would definitely recommend this place and when I come back, I will definitely stay here! They are planning to build a pool soon so hopefully that will be installed soon!
