Benefits of Choosing Our Guest House / Hostel Over Standard City Hotels
When you go on a holiday, you are usually expected to spend a great deal of money. Although its great joy to spend what you have on what makes your heart tick, its always good to plan your itinerary well to get the most out of it without depleting your funds. Staying in affordable, but decent accommodation facilities like our guest house / hostel, will go a long way in helping you to organize a memorable dinner, excursion or tour to key destinations, buy worthy sourvenirs and the like.
Guest houses / hostels are once again rising in popularity especially in Nairobi. Holiday makers are seeking to get most of their holiday savings, not just because the global financial status affects all, but because there is so much to explore and learn within a limited time. Fewer people are able to afford a foreign holiday in 5 star establishments these days and this trend looks set to continue for many years to come. Our answer to this is an assortment of private suite rooms to fit your budget (singles, doubles, shared, dorms, tents etc). If you want a classy suite with separate bath / shower, dressing room, study room, TV area, spacious, WiFi enabled etc, you can have one from $50 B&B (per person sharing). This room can even fit 3-4 beds for family accommodation.
Think of choosing a budget hotel in Nairobi instead? You will sadly discover that most of these are drab and are mostly situated in ugly city locations among the hustles and bustles of the city's population (and sometimes, fears of safety). You have to drive by crowded streets, or walk shoulder to shoulder among weary workers and business people. Our guest house is located in one of Kenya's serene upmarket suburbs, safe, cosy and homely.
Hotels tend to be sprawling with floors having many rooms. If overflowing at top seasons, your services are more or less likely to be compromised. It always feels great to be on holiday in a hostel or guest house - at a place where you feel more like home. We have the answer to this. Our staff reviews at Hostel World, Hostel Bookers, Trip Advisor and other hotel booking review sites rate us at a consistent 90-100%. You will surely make friends here.
It has been assessed by other travelers in many articles on the web that many guest houses and hostels, not just in Nairobi, but across the world are family businesses that work hard to ensure that you have a friendly stay, in hope, that you will of course return. With fewer, but adequate staff than hotels, staff are highly motivated and more so, work as team. Most budget hostel workers suffer low wages and have little enthusiasm to make your stay pleasant.
Suffice it to say that nothing is too much trouble for us (the staff and the management) and will be always at hand to provide our local knowledge and make sure your stay is a pleasure from beginning to end. You should not be surprised to find a management that listens, and ready to negotiate
We dearly welcome you to Bush House & Camp,your Nairobi hostel accommodation located at the heart of kenya.
