The all-nighter and all-dayer: a hazy string of tusker beer that blur with the mornings sun. As exhausted as you are, the morning surf is incredibly fun & sea water dissolves hangovers like no other, so you think you'll put off sleep 'til later that afternoon but next thing you know its night time and once again, not a real good time to be sleeping....and so it is, every day of the week, Mombasa Backpackers, Kenya's Indian Ocean.

Location Information

Mwamba Drive, #69. Nyali.
Mombasa, Kenya.

We are located on Mwamba Drive, house with a black gate #69 (right before the 'Sunrise Resort Apartments'. Off Links road ). by the Kenol Petrol Station on the Mtwapa Rd. right behind Nakumatt City Mall in a suburb north of Mombasa called Nyali, far away from chaotic city centre, that way you can't smell it nor hear it, but still within easy reach (15min by public transport). Described as having the best location in the whole of Mombasa. We are second row from beach so we have lots of sea breeze. We are a mere 4 solid minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the biggest Nakumatt in Town/ Malindi Road which has a wide range of options of public transport. As well as many shops and restaurants near by.
