My friend and I stayed there for 3 nights and we had a great experience. We asked for a taxi to pick us up and the guy was friendly and even gave us a mini tour around the city (although he overcharged us a bit, but anyway..). I imagine trying to find the place on your own is quite hard so try to have maps or phone numbers to be able to get there or give directions to a taxi driver.
We slept well (in a dorm) and didn't feel any noise despite the lots of dogs around (and several reviews complaining about them barking all night).
There was no hot water initially on the shared showers but after asking in the reception the sorted it out quickly, but you have to go and ask for help.
Jesse helped us with the safari booking and we were very pleased with the overall experience. Would recommend although it is not so convenient to just walk around so you have to use matatus and taxis (not a problem for us).
They have board games, tv and dvds but after 10-11pm you can't be very noisy so it's not the kind of party hostel one might have in mind, still very friendly.
