It is located by the beach, but not the best beach if you like to swim in clear blue waters. The scenery is beautiful though. It's difficult to get there. The staff is super friendly and are always eager to help you, assure you get a nice time and keep you safe. Everything is very calm and relaxed. WiFi is very limited. The accommodation is very simple and our room didn't even had walls, which made it an interesting experience. One can wake up with sound of the waves and the birds.

It was an throughly amazing trip. it was so good, that we have extended our stay for another 3 days! Staff is very friendly and supportive. Unfortunately, we were robbed once during daytime, since there are no locks on the doors.

The Beach is an excellent place for a serene, but simple stay 60 minutes away from Mombasa. There are excellent views, great food, and the staff there almost feels like family. It's a good relaxing stay if you like camping style living - but I wouldn't recommend it for those wanting to get in / out of Mombasa as it's challenging to make frequent trips. The bathrooms are very basic without hot water. No electricity in the rooms or wifi, but the staff was very helpful with charging phone

The Beach Africa is a good hostel for backpackers. We were traveling through Kenya and really liked the location and style of this place. A bit more security would however not hurt. But this was for us not an issue. Beautifull beaches and adventure style accomodation was definately a great experience

We arrived here after getting long train from Nairobi to Mombasa. We were exhausted and were frustrated that when we arrived there was no power and no water. This was a local issue not just the venue. The staff were lovely but our room was practically a shed and did not keep the mosquitoes at bay, but as a budget room for the camping type it would be OK. if you have lots of luggage get a taxi rather than matatu. It isn't close to the social areas but right on the beach.
