I have stayed at Manyatta Backpackers twice now and the second time only got better. (The fridge happened to be not working during my first stay). They have an on site kitchen that you are able to order chips/fries, burgers, or fish from as well as breakfast in the morning (which is minimal, but included). There was a good selection of cold water, beer, and soda. The place was no-frills but had everything you needed. The bathroom was communal, but had nice toilets with working plumbing, solo showers, and never had an issue with water. They also have a nice common room with free wifi (which is good when there aren't too many people on it at once) and a TV with satellite. It felt very safe and they had a locked gate and night watchman. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the city centre down Kenyatta Ave. The beds were decent and I was sharing a room with friends, so my sleep was fine. The owner and staff are extremely helpful and friendly - I would gladly stay there again.
