Help!Our hostel has closed due to terror threat.Where now?

Hi

I am going to Kenya on a work project and taking my kids with me in a few weeks. The project is in Narok, Maralal and then a short holiday in Kilifi - none of which are under travel warnings. The problem is we were due to pitstop at Upper Hill in between phases of the project and the hostel where we were staying has closed until things stabilize.

Can anyone recommend a backpackers that does decent family rooms? Or should I just avoid Nairobi altogether?

Which hostel are you referring to? There are only a few real backpacking joints in Nairobi.

No - it's Upper Hill.

That's odd, since Upper Hill Campsite's website says nothing about being closed. I will send them an email for clarification.

The owners (Jessi and Rich) had this to say in their email:

"As of July 1st we have sold the business and it will be shut down until Oct 1st for remodel but the new owners are wonderful and will take great care of you!"
