Hostels in Mombasa, Kenya
Mombasa is a city on the coast of Kenya. It is the country’s oldest and second-largest city, after the capital Nairobi. Mombasa is a melting pot of languages and cultures from all sides of the Indian Ocean, and it waits like an exotic dessert for travelers who make it to Kenya’s coastline. Having more in common with Dakar or Dar es Salaam than Nairobi, Mombasa’s blend of India, Arabia, and Africa can be intoxicating, and many visitors find themselves seduced by East Africa’s biggest and most cosmopolitan port. Indeed, the city has many faces, from the ecstatic passion of the call to prayer over the Old Town, to the waves crashing against the coral beaches below Fort Jesus and the sight of a Zanzibar-bound ships slipping over the horizon. Mombasa offers a variety of culture and experiences, and these hostels provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
