This backpackers is very very simple and basic. It is fine if you are happy with basic standards and want to save money. The place is very run down and looks like it has been abandoned or neglected for a few years. It was quiet,...More

Hidden from the hustle and bustle of mtwapa and with amazing views of the ocean. the place is very pocket friendly (chaepest place to sleep next to the beach) and the staff are friendly. Cats are irritating especially if you leave food in the rooms....More

About
Description
This place is for everyone who wants to break out of the normal wheel, to come back to the simplicity of life and its natural beauty. Overseeing the Indian Ocean, at the entrance of a Mangrove creek, surrounded More by a local Fishermans village & historical sites, away from the rest of the world, the Beach is hidden and wants to be discovered. Stranded here, those moments of life one spends at the Beach become timeless. The Beach Bandas are built in a unique African style, the meals are freshly prepared on a local charcoal grill, and if someone wants to break out for a nightlife session, Mtwapa itself is a young and hip town, that offers many interesting places... It should be noted that the hostel and its amenities are no longer associated with the "BAR" these are shortly to become 2 separate co-located business's. However, guests at the hostels will be most welcome in the revised bar. The proposed name of the bar will be Sunset Havana, partially due to superb views and ambience. Clearly major changes will take time, but be assured of revised (downward) prices and standards of cleanliness and friendliness Less
