Nairobi Central YMCA Reviews
Aug 15, 2011
For a cheap city, Nairobi has very expensive hotels and the hostels are often not secure. However, when my friend mentioned he worked for the YMCA I decided to stay there. The downside is that there isn't really a website or anything to book on, just an email address. There are various rooms, of which I stayed in a few during my time. For about $10US a night, you can get a single room with a shared bathroom. I stayed in a twin room with ensuite for about $20US a night. At the end of my stay I opted for a 'deluxe' room with a queen bed and a TV (which didn't work!) for $27US a night. Pro's: It's safe (very important in Nairobi), clean, centrally located next to the Nairobi University and sociable place. Con's: It's a little hard to find contact details, buildings are a little dated, the YMCA doesn't allow smoking or drinking in the premises.
It might not be for everyone but you won't get ripped off and it's safe so I enjoyed staying here.
