  • If you want to have a wild time in Mombosa this is the place to be. It is at a great location. A four minute walk to the beach a five minute walk to the mall. The staff was very friendly and was always there to help. David, the owner, is super chill and has great connections around town. If can get loud at night but I think that is part of the hostel experience!! Thanks David for the great stay and recommending the best dive place!!
