If you want to get away from the chaos of Mombasa and relax by the beach, then this is the perfect place. The main area is an open veranda with a canopy of trees and a great view of the ocean. The rooms are actually huts, situated in an enclosure at the back. There's very limited electricity, but you hardly feel the need for it. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very much at home.

The Beach Africa is very relaxed and off the beaten track, the cooking is superb and the staff are friendly. However they don't seem to be set up for guests. Understandably, water is conserved in parts of Africa at certain times of the day but it is off A LOT here, including the morning which makes it very difficult to use the bathroom on waking up. Also, security is non-existent, your only option is handing over your valuables to the staff. Keep the price in mind when setting expectations.

THE BEST OF THE BEST. This place is is a golden beacon of light, a sanctuary to rest from the travel grind. Mama and Martin and Eva and everyone else are genuinely good-hearted people, and they made my stay wonderful! I extended my stay from 1 day to 8 days. If you visit Kenya without visiting Beach Africa, you are making a big mistake. Also: Amazing food! I'll miss that octopus dinner for the rest of my life.....until I return

I thought that the hostel was both an excellent location and value. The security guard, mama, and Martin were all excellent hosts. The other guests were very respectful. The view from both the lounge area and the rooms is absolutely amazing. Not only that, but you were able to have all three meals made for very reasonable prices (~200-600 KSH)The beds were also pretty comfortable and had mosquito nets which were a lifesaver. The showers could use some work, but they did the job.

Great place to relax for a couple of days. No internet, no electricity in the rooms but a perfect location, INCREDIBLY good food and supernice staff. Mtwapa downtown and Mombasa are reached fastly if you want to party. Highly recommendable!
