Hostels are affordable accommodation shared among students and travelers. When a student books and stay in a hostel, he or she typically books a room for the entire semester, not a night. Some hostels may be self-contained rooms or a shared rooms with other students, and their prices vary. Students enjoy affordable hostels in the heart of Nakuru town.

The Bathrooms are dorm-style, large, with individual shower stalls and a row of sinks. Hostels usually have only one or two bathrooms on each floor. Hostels tend to lead to more interaction, cost much less than a hotel, which is cost-effective; however, it does not provide the privacy or personal service found at a hotel.

Hostels offer very reasonable services consisting of shared rooms, shared bathrooms, Free-WI-FI, and common areas. Many college students like hostels for their social aspect, particularly when studying away from their parents.

The majority of the hostels are adequately catered, with two or three meals provided and eaten communally every day. You share bathrooms but have your room as your sanctuary and study place. In other cases, they are on or are a short distance from campus, and all have active social programs. When it is time to study, hostels give a supportive and promising platform.

In the hostel, you can make friendships from anywhere in hostels, which can help enrich and determine your time at University or college. Most of the others (students)  in hostels are in the same position as you will be, first-year students in a new city- Nakuru. It’s interesting. In Hostels, you get an excellent introduction to everything and make you feel part of university or college life.

Hostels or colleges come with real costs.

There is a high cost for hostels. A month or semester may cost between Kshs. 5,000 -Kshs. 20,000 for a wholly catered accommodation. Self-catered choices are as well available in some universities and colleges, with students living with 2-5 others in apartment-like units with cooking facilities. These choices may cost from Kshs 6,500 for the year, with food and living costs are on top of this.

Some of the costs may be covered by a student allowance given by HELB This is a monthly payment provided by the government to assist with your living expenses while you study. It’s money that you will have to pay back in the future when you complete your studies. You usually require to be studying one full-time course at a particular education provider to get a student allowance and pass to keep it.

Living in a hostel is undoubtedly something that you require to work out with your parents. It may be a big commitment for you and your family.

Apply early for your hostel or college space

You require to apply for a hostel or residential college or University even before you are admitted into a course at University or college. Applications for hostel space need to be made as early as April and March, August, and September the year before you plan to study, and hostel accommodation offers are usually made to prospective students in October, even before KASNEB exams start.

Get onto it. It is better to apply and secure a room rather than delay and take the chances on long waiting lists. Applications require a reference from your school, as well as all your details.

Advantages of Staying at a Hostel

1. Inexpensive
Hostels offer cheap accommodations, particularly when compared to staying in a rental house. Although prices vary from county to county, and hostel to hostel, I’ve compiled some average price ranges for hostels frequently researched. Most of these charges apply to the majority of hostels everywhere in Kenya.

2. Helps when you Travel in Groups
Staying in hostels enables everyone to share large rooms. Some hostels support up to twenty people to stay in one place. It may be a lot of fun, particularly when you plan a group trip, and reduces the arguments over who shares rooms.

5. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served.
Most hostels include a free meal for students.

7. Meet Interesting People from Around Kenya
People from all over Kenya and the world stay in hostels, and many take the time to talk to you about where they are from, school, and the best places they have visited; hence you end up being friends to keep. They will as well want to hear from you, so be ready to share.

8. Security Offered
If you are worried about the safety of staying in a hostel, put your fears to rest. Hostels usually have a strict policy of not permitting anyone who is not staying at the hostel to go inside. If you worry that someone may take your belongings, many hostels do offer safes to lock up your valuables.

9. Each One Is Unique
Every hostel is one of a kind. They are not the same as hotels where if you have seen one, you have seen them all.
