About
Description
Safina is a clean, safe women's hostel connected to the Wema centre Trust home for girls in Mombasa. It is ideal for long stay volunteers and those wanting a taste of an authentic Kenyan lifestyle, close to More Mombasa and the beach but well off the tourist trail. Also great for those with a social conscience as money raised by the hostel goes directly to support the good work of the Wema Trust. Less
