Diani backpackers is close to the beach, to the skydiving center, the diving center... Everything! And food is perfect for a real affordable price. I will definetly come back there

    Absolutely amazing. No wonder it’s the best hostel in Kenya! The staff are super nice. There is a swimming pool, and games, and a pool table. It’s clean, and the prices are reasonable. It has a lovely garden; and is a few minutes walking from the beach. Really what more could you ask for?

    I had a great stay in Diani because of this hostel! Super fun and a great atmosphere--it is impossible not to make friends here! I loved the pool and all of the sitting areas available, as well as the restaurant. It would be very easy to come to Diani and just never leave the hostel. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The only problem was that the large bedroom I was in didn't have a fan or airconditioning, which made it very hot at night.

    Great pool and chill out area, amazing atmosphere, really great place to meet other travellers! The food at the restaurant was good but s little overpriced, same for the drinks. If you just want the beach and pool then the location is perfect but it is a tuktuk ride away from any other shops. Would definitely stay here again and 100% recommend!

    Top : Best hostel I’ve stayed in 2 months in east Africa. Amazing staff and manager. Great menu (breakfast/dinnerlunch). Stay in the 16 or so bed dorm when it's super hot. Rad pool. To be improved : Add free breakfast… Not very clean in the big dorm with 16 or so beds.. there were « poo » from lizards behind our beds and some spider webs. Road from the main road to the hostel (locals dumps their trash). Please do something for the shower areas.. could be modernized… it’s just basic for now..

    Great hostel. Nice pool and 10/15 min walk to white sandy beaches but a bit far from town - staff helpful and in house kitchen reasonable price. Was there in low season so wasn’t bouncing at the bar over the weekend but I imagine in peak season would be a great party spot

    Very Good

    Great friendly staff, nice pool and common area with a 24 hour bar. The Location is at the very far end of diani nor near any other bars or restaurants or nightlife. Unfortunately the place is ridden with bed bugs. My friend stayed in the large open dorm got tons of bites and I stayed in the 6 bed dorm and got them as well. They did nothing about the bed bugs and someone was actually checked into the same bunk I got them in the next night so they don't care and aren't getting rid of them

    We decided to book this place because the reviews were very good, so we arrived with big expectations. Overall it’s an ok place, but we thought it needs a bit care. The chef was the best of it.
