Have stayed in Flora Hostel regularly since 2000. While the facilities are basic they are consistently clean. Non self contained rooms are cheaper. Wi Fi is quite good. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Taxis are always available in the compound. Traditionally a place where many missionaries have stayed as church with daily mass on the compound. The food is...

Stayed one night waiting for a plane. Cheapest and cleanest place in Nairobi! Location is not bad but a bit noisy due to Kenyatta Hospital noise nearby. Supper (Kenyan cuisine) was included in the 2,700/- price for a single room without a bathroom. Bedroom had no electric outlets. Not a modern facility...only the bare necessities provided. Would go back if...

The Flora Hostel is located in central Nairobi not too far from the downtown shopping district. The Hostel is run by the...

I stayed at Flora Hostel on and off during my two-month stay in Kenya. It's located in the Kilimani area of Nairobi and is close to many restaurants off Ngong Road. The staff and security guards are all very friendly and welcoming. I felt very safe during my stay as you need to pass through a gate to get in...

For those who love budget accommodation , Flora Hostel is a nice quiet location and probably situated in one of the most safe locations in Nairobi . Meals simple but very nice and healthy, very friendly stuff and big compound for parking your car.
