Story About US

Tulia House Backpackers was funded in 2005. Back on these days Tulia was a cozy small backpacker next to the beach. Since then, fantastic staff joined the team and the small Tulia grew for good. We built another house to be able to host more guests in a quite green area, surrounded by our beloved pets; peacocks, rabbits, tortoises and chickens. 

Our philosophy has always been to maintain our one-family essence and to spread this into our guests. We embrace solo travellers, couple or family travellers or any other kind of travellers. We have been told from our guests that not only they had a blast at Tulia’s but they met lifetime friendships, which makes us super proud and happy. 

In 2019, we funded Tulia Old Town, a cozy hostel in the heart of Mombasa’s Old Town. Get to know more about Tulia Old Town here.
