Tulia is a great place to stay in Nyali. It's located close to the main shopping mall, various bars/restaurants and under 5 mins from the beach. I stayed in a private en suite, which was clean, spacious and comfortable (mosquito net included). The staff are great and do a good job at making you feel welcome. Other reviewers noted that there is more of a local vibe socially, which is true, but I think this is a good thing personally. I will be staying here the next time I stop off at Mombasa. Keep up the good work Safi and the team!

During my stay I had an amazing time! The whole place is set up perfectly for any one traveling on a budget and it's very central to all the attractions. Service was exceptional and the staff were helpful and patient. I would definitely visit again! =)

The Dorms are very very Clean as the Bath Rooms The Pool the Water is Clean tooo they look after You get also a Bath Towel and if you stay longer then You can get a New One Just Ask!!!!!!!!!

The Location is actually not that Bad near is a Nyali Mall where you get very Good Foood for a decent Price about 4 Minuts Walk even the ATM are at that Mall

And is also near to the Road where you get the Transport to Malindi or Kilifi


The Beachs are very Close 7 Minuts from the Hostel just when the Tight from the Water cames it makes you a Cut and you have to go the other Way around

But the Water at the Beach is clean and thats the main Think




There is also a Buss Terminal near where you ca Book a Bus to Nairobi

this is a good place with awesome staff. however i would say it's rather not typical backpackers' place. majority of tulia's customers is local youth coming at evenings for drinking, smoking sheesha and watching music videos on the screen. the bar is really poor equipped (they don't have any juices for example so they cannot make any drink more complicated then vodka&coke).
all in all it is a very nice place, but be sure that it is what you want.

Several friends and myself stayed at the lovely Tulia House in Mombasa for 5 days. We had the 4 person suite with private bathroom. The accommodations were very nice and clean. The staff was exceptional and to top things off the pricing of the rooms are very affordable. Due the low pricing I was not sure what to expect while staying there, but the Tulia House exceeded our expectations. The meals and drinks were affordable as well as delicious! This is truly one of Mombasa's great unknown gems!!!
