If you want to taste the real experience of living with a typical Kenyan family you must visit Lydia Sabina homestay. Besides the perfect location which means getting in and out of town centre is easy and timely,the homemade food is delicious!! You will not reget your stay, it will be a memory of a lifetime.laughed alot andl loved every bit of my stay.
Lydia was an amazing host! She truly provides a "home away from home" and has a very welcoming family. I highly recommend staying with Lydia for all travellers to Nairobi and thank her for such a great stay in her home.
It's been wonderful staying with Lydia Sabina. She and her family are extremely welcoming and friendly. She always makes sure that I am comfortable, took a lot of time to show me around town and get me acclimated to Nairobi, and teach me about Kenyan culture! The house and the room are always very clean and neat, and the location is perfect to interact with locals and take quick trips to the market & grocery store. Everyone that's coming to Nairobi should stay here!
