About Safina Hostel

Located in Bamburi, a vibrant residential and shopping district of Mombasa, The Wema centre is a social enterprise supporting rescued street children. The hostel is located in our secure compound alongside our school and children’s home. You will find us to be both a quiet and peaceful retreat and in possession of a lively and vibrant atmosphere. Please note that because of proximity to the children’s home, we operate a strict no alcohol policy on site, however as we are just minutes from a range of local shops, cafes, bars and transport links you will not be short on entertainment options outside of the centre!

Accommodation Information

You can choose from a bed in one of our shared twin rooms or spoil yourself in our spacious bedsitter with en suite bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans and beds come with fresh bedding and mosquito nets, communal areas are kept clean and neat. Whilst we can provide all of your meals, you will have access to a shared kitchen area, meaning you can prepare snacks or try your hand at making your own meals with produce from the local market. Other communal areas include a dining room, tv lounge and fitness facility. The Wema compound benefits from a 24 hour manned security post at the front gate, meaning you can relax with confidence and come and go as you please.

Please note, we have an additional large 20 bedded dormitory available for large groups, please contact us directly for bookings.
