“Excellent hostel with a feeling of a student's dorm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

YMCA offers a reliable hostel to a budget traveler even in Nairobi. You can feel at home at a restaurant, an internet cafe, a kiosk, a swimming room, a barber and a conference room. Protected by a guard, it locates next to the University of Nairobi and in a walking distance (10-15 minutes) from the city center. However, you may need a mosquito repellent both in a room and at a shared shower room.
