Where to get Cheapest Bed Sitters and Single Rooms in Nairobi (Ksh-5,000-Ksh 9, 000)



Bedsitters and single rooms are the ideal rooms to rent in Nairobi when you don’t have a big family or when you are limited in terms of finances.There are estates where you can find such rooms with excellent finishing and with plenty of water.

Bed sitters are common in Nairobi because they are self-contained. Every Estate has houses with bed sitters, but not all estates have cheap ones.Apartments in areas like Embakasi,Donholm,Umoja,Tassia,Rongai,Githurai,Kahawa West,Juja,Roysambu and Langata are designed in such a way they can accommodate more bed sitters than one bedrooms.They usually attract those with low salaries and people who are not employed.
