“Best Backpacker Option in Nairobi- Nothing Else Compares”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2009

Run by a great group of people and always filled with a great mix of travelers from all over the world and all ages. Good restaurant and great bar. There are many options of where to stay, rooms, dorm, cabins/bandas, furnished tents with electricity, basic tents, or you can just pitch your own! All are great options. The compound is beautiful and there is a comfy fireplace with couches and a TV for relaxing nights... the fireplace is great on some of those cold Nairobi Nights. This is where I always stay when going into Nairobi.

The staff can also assist you in any of your needs as far as booking tours, finding your way through Nairobi and finding the best activities to do- no matter what you want to do- they know someone who can arrange it for you at a good price.
