Youth Hostels

Kenya Youth hotels Association has been trying to set up a chain of hotels across the country. The existing hostels are too far apart for easy travelling by one's own efforts. We recon a day's hike to be 10 to 20 miles and a day's cycle ride to be 40 to 80 miles. A chain from Mombasa via Nairobi to Lake Turkana would therefore require hostels at, say every small town en route in addition to those already established and exists.


If you would like to be an affiliate hotel/campsite or agent, please send us an email and we will get back to you. Do you have a suitable hut? If yes, Kenya Youth hotel Association would advice you on decoration and furnishing. Do you have a site but no Building? We are still interested. Some of our members prefer to camp out, and we may be able to put up a building on site. Wayside shop can also help.

Affiliation Fee

Once your request has been considered having met the requirements for affiliation, you will sign an agreement with Kenya Youth hotels Association, after which you will pay by either cheque/money order/cash or bank transfer, a sum of Kshs 5000 yearly.

What is Required

To start a youth hostel or a campsite, you need a simple overnight accommodation with a constant water supply, such as a a small building near a farmstead. The farmer or wife will be appointed warden, and will be asked to see that the hut is secure against theft and left clean and tidy by the hoteliers when they leave.
