    You don't have to look any further. Diani Backpackers is the best place to be. This hostel is incredible. The pool is not only eye-catching but so refreshing and perfect temp. The beds are comfy, the rooms are huge, the place is perfectly clean and the staff is 10 out of 10. There is a great vibe, super chill, fun music, lots to do on site. The massage I received was also amazing and affordable. Diani Backpackers is a gem amidst the world of hostels.

    Great atmosphere, great people, nice mix of both local and from abroad. Staff are awesome, always there to help (night or day), mark the owner is really chill, and ready to help what ever the need is. The vibe here is to chill in the day, and have a good time in the eve. If you want to kick back and let go for a bit this is the place to go. 5 stars! Will be back!

    The staff here is awesome especially the bartenders who are fun to chat with and have great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. DEFINITELY book a massage with Elizabeth while you're here, it's completely worth it! Onsite restaurant is convenient for food if you don't want to leave the hostel. Overall, the hostel is clean and the people who stay there are nice and social.

    Fantastic hostel for relaxing and enjoying the pool/ocean. The staff was INCREDIBLE - such nice people. Would certainly love to stay again. I stayed in the 6 bed dorm, was very clean and spacious - not many outlets, but they have plenty around the bar area. The fan in the room didn't do so much during the night so prepare yourself for a potentially very sweaty sleep, but that's the small price for staying anywhere budget in Diani, just wake up and jump right in the pool to cool off :)

    Food available til 9pm and 24 hr bar- both with fair prices. Their system is to run a tab for all food, drinks, accommodation, and even any excursions you book through them and I really appreciated that- kept everything really simple and easy. Staff was personable and always easy to find on site should you need anything and common areas were great to just hang out, meet people, and enjoy friendly conversation. Highly recommend the 1 hr massage for 1,500 KES.

    Shitshow! I booked a private room due to ear problems, I must stay away from noise. For 40$ I expected a very nice room but I just had a bed in a hut and toilet/ shower in another hut. All so basic like a prison cell. I have very good earplugs yet the music was so loud that I couldn't sleep until 4am!! I checked out the next day. The manager promised to call me about refund,of course he never did. This hostel has an award,says a lot about how low the standards are in this country for hostels...
