THE HUB

High quality and affordable accommodation in the heart of Iten

The Hub offers guests from all over the world the opportunity to stay in the Home of Champions at an affordable price while enjoying the comfort of high quality, full board or self catered accommodation.​ We created The Hub in 2021 to provide athletes a simple, quiet, contemporary alternative to other training centres in Iten; a place to live and feel at home while you focus on your training.

Rooms and Facilities at The Hub

The Hub is an accommodation complex made up of six studios. Each studio sleeps 2 - 4 guests and features its own private living room where guests can relax and socialise, as well as a private bathroom with hot shower. 

 

Three of the studios also have their own fully equipped private kitchenette, allowing guests to opt for self catered accommodation if they wish, or to simply prepare some snacks while still enjoying the comfort of full-board. These studios will feature two bedrooms (each with two single beds), living room with kitchenette, and bathroom, providing accommodation for up to four guests per apartment. The kitchenette has a four-ring gas stove, a fridge, a kettle, and all the necessary pots, pans and cutlery.

 

As former professional runners we know how to identify what's important to athletes: a good night’s sleep, healthy and tasty meals and being able to feel at home. In each bedroom, our guests have the choice between a high quality pocket-spring mattress and a high quality foam mattress, so that they can get the most out of their training and recovery. Although there is no malaria in Iten and Eldoret, there can be mosquitos, so to make sure you sleep undisturbed at night, all beds have mosquito nets. Additional items in each studio include a wardrobe, bed side table, a dining table, and indoor and outdoor chairs.

​The complex is situated on a large plot of private land with views over Iten where guests can relax outside or do some outdoor exercises. From 2022 the outdoor area will also feature a large fire-pit which guests can sit around and enjoy a nice evening. Additional services that are offered, but that are not included in the price, are: massage, laundry service, private internet router, organisation of trips (safari) and transport.

Food & Catering

We understand that most guests prefer to focus on their training and recovery, so we offer full-board to all, including those who have booked a studio with kitchenette. Our full-board package includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner served in the communal dining area, as well as fruits and tea during the day.

 

During breakfast we provide our guests with (toasted) bread, jams/spreads, milk, boiled or fried eggs, fruits, cereals/porridge oats, tea and coffee. For lunch and dinner, our chef uses high quality ingredients and prepares a variety of dishes, using a mix of Kenyan and Western cuisine. If there is anything you particularly like/dislike then of course our chef will take that into consideration when preparing your meals. ​

Please note, while we do our very best to ensure our guests have all the food they need during their stay, we do not provide items of a luxury nature, such as chocolate or alcoholic beverages. Items such as these can be purchased at the local shops.

WiFi at The Hub

Your stay at The Hub includes high speed WiFi in the communal area which also reaches most of the studios. In addition to that, we offer guests the option to rent their own portable WiFi router.

Safety & Privacy

Iten is a very safe, welcoming, and friendly place with a very low crime rate. The local people are very courteous towards foreign guests visiting the area. The Hub is located on private grounds, enclosed by a wall and gated fence. The main entrance to the property is a secure, lockable gate to which you will be provided the key upon arrival. The accommodation itself is also very secure with lockable entrances and locks on the doors of each bedroom so you can store your valuables safely.
