From $11

The first and only Backpackers in Mombasa has been open for over a year, pleasing the needs of Backpackers, and still going strong.

All beds come with mosquito nets and all rooms have fans. We are located in a suburb north of Mombasa called Nyali, far away from chaotic city centre, that way you can't smell it nor hear it, but still within easy reach (15min by public transport) Described as having the best location in the whole of Mombasa. We are second row from beach so we have lots of sea breeze. We are a mere 4 solid minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the biggest Nakumatt in Town and to Malindi Road which has a wide range of options of public transport.

- We are the only backpackers in Kenya with a swimming pool (descent-size big enough to do laps)

- We offer the fastest WIFI (uplink 256 kbps/ downlink 1024Kbps)

- DSTV Cable/USB compatible/Plasma TV- in a lounge room full of couches, and mattresses on the floor with pillows everywhere for you to relax while watching your movie.

- A second plasma TV with DSTV cable at the BAR only for sports (TV volume will be on mute at all times expect on special matches, music will still be on at all times in order not to kill the bar atmosphere. But feel free to let us know if there is a particular game you wish to watch while staying with us. Let it be cricket, rugby, surfing, football, etc).

- A well stocked BAR, no other bar in the whole of Kenya offers the number of beer selection we have, over 23 local/imported brands. Plus a jack for you to plug in your ipod and share your music with us.

- Hookah (assorted flavours)

- Hot showers, bathtubs and western toilets

- North American tattoo artists waiting for you to get inked (with tattoo equipment brought from the States)

- Too Many indoor/outdoor chill out areas

- Book exchange

- Chef on site from 7am til 10pm with an extensive budget menu

- Kitchen facilities (fridge, stove for guests)

- Massive BBQ most Fridays.

- We are friends with the best water sport centers/Backpackers in East Africa offering sweet deals to our clients.

- Free trial pool scuba dives done by the only 5 star PADI in East Africa, Buccaneer Diving, in the Backpackers swimming pool and 10% DISCOUNT if you dive with them.

- sweet check out time of NOON. (If leaving later than noon, the option of leaving your luggage in our storage room and enjoy our facilities at no extra charge)

- Drinking games and board games on sight.

- Info on spots to kite-surf and scuba dive on the whole Kenyan Coast.

- Info on safaris.

- Well up-to-date info about travelling/backpacking in the region (where to go, places to stay and how to get there - ask for David).

- Laundry area

- Storage room (to drop most of your stuff and travel light while your crossing/vagabondage/kite surfing the Kenyan coast).

Importan Notice: We have relocated on June 2011 within Nyali. From Moyne Drive #689 to a better, more centric location, on Mwamba Drive #69.
