This terrific place within a very secure gated community is one of the friendliest accommodation options in town, and whether you camp out back, cosy up in the dorms or splurge on your own cabin, you’ll end up huddled around the fire at night, swapping travel stories and dining on home-cooked meals (from KSh500) with fellow travellers.

It's off Langata Rd. To get here, take matatu 126 (to Galeria) or 111 (Karen Shopping Centre), then change to a Karen matatu and ask to be let off at St Helen's Lane.
