About Backpackers Nirvana

Mombasa's highest online rated Backpackers & second to hit NYALI BEACH, Mombasa - is RELOCATING 31st March 2014 just a little further up the beach. We are the ONLY backpackers hostel on the coast designed with traditional African decor, Freebies in your rate, awesome staff on-site for ALL your needs and highly secured location for your safety.

Chilled accommodation on the Indian Ocean

Imagine spending your days relaxing by our poolside or taking a slow 8 minute walk to the nearby beach…then sundowns with free spirited kindred spirits, charcoal burning incense near the open fire, an array of playlists & entertainment.

The Free Breakfast – Omelette/Toast, Free tea/coffee until 11am, Free Internet/wifi, 24 hours access to kitchen, shower and tv room, DVD & Books Library, No curfew, 8mins walk to the beach/bar…We offer safari packages, snorkelling, day trips, extensive knowledge on Kenya and East Africa – and last but not least, on-site holistic services.

All our accommodation is spotlessly clean and has ceiling fans for the heat of the day. The dormitory has Air Conditioning powered on for ONE hour per day – time depending on the vibe, but after sundown…just to make dream time a little easier to get to…as it directly faces the sun… That’s why we charge a little bit extra for the dorms now

The poolside and hammocks are around the garden while whiling away the days, and we offer free luggage storage and safekeeping for your valuables, even if you decide to venture around the coast & come back to collect the heavier stuff at a later time.

The best part of our location is direct matatus to all areas of the coast and central to Links Road, Nyali so you have the option of going to Mombasa town in 15 mins or City Mall (see nightlife, shopping & restaurants below) in 5 mins drive. Few minutes walking distance from Nirvana you can buy street food, fruit & veg, mobile credit etc.

We are offering a budget, well-kept retreat… Many of our clients come to get peace, away from noisy, congested hostels/areas, to recharge after long months of travelling or work, and to stay somewhere affordable, clean and very secure in-house and out… We’ve taken the budget option to another level and provide a home away from home.

Nirvana offers a haven to refresh Body, Mind & Soul with and for unique clientèle…

Important Information


We have a domestic 2 year old dog called Vegas....and probably new additions will arrive!
