Welcome to Backpacker’s Nirvana


Hi, my name is Lesley … & this is my backpacker’s nirvana

Imagine spending your days relaxing around the house or on the veranda with the sea breeze in a beautiful beach house…then sundowns with free spirited kindred spirits, charcoal burning incense near the open fires, an array of music playlists & entertainment, beers & shisha…

The Free Breakfast – Omelette/Toast, Free tea/coffee until 11am, Free Internet/wifi, 24 hours access to kitchen, shower and tv room, DVD & Books Library, No curfew, direct gated entrance to Mombasa Beach…We offer safari packages, snorkelling, day trips, extensive knowledge on Kenya and East Africa – and last but not least, on-site holistic services.

Included in your rate is not only accommodation or facilities ~ but a respect & loyalty to giving you the right information, the tightest of security / location, and our genuine love & TLC ~ Nirvana was founded & developed by Lesley (me, your host) ~ a female lone nomad bound to Africa indefinitely for almost the last decade ~ to provide travelers / families / couples & individuals with the peace of mind, “…a place to chill or a place to party ~ the place to breathe or a place to pass out…” ~ & to offer a Safe Haven amidst of challenges of living, working & traveling through Africa…

We are offering a budget, well-kept retreat… Many of our clients come to get peace, away from noisy, congested hostels/areas, to recharge after long months of travelling or work, and to stay somewhere affordable, clean and very secure in-house and out… We’ve taken the budget option to another level and provide a home away from home & we are the only budget backpackers / homestay / B&B first row to the beach….

Nirvana offers a haven to refresh Body, Mind & Soul with and for unique clientèle…


Me & the team look forward to welcoming you!


We’ve had many changes this year…. from moving from the first house, to renovating another (to which collapsed), to finally finding a beach house.

We Sincerely apologise for the confusion for any of our followers, regulars and intended first time guests ~ the changes were out of our control… Taking time to find the Perfect Nirvana house was my priority this time & now we have a beautiful beach house home. No renovations or time needed to have ready made for your trip.

Please keep checking in as we add photos & updates ;-)

We have a superb range of accommodation, from camping to private rooms, all at a price to suit any budget.

We take pride in offering some of the best rates for our facilities you’ll find anywhere in Kenya.
