    Good place. It's fantastic you can go to the hotel across the street and chill at the pool and beach. The staff as pretty nice as well. Awesome you can feed the bush babies at night. They're a little loud but cute. Overall I'd recommend the place. The only crappy thing is the bathroom is kind of far from the rooms.

    Came here for a week's break from teaching in Nairobi. Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in, definitely the best in Africa. Fantastically friendly staff, fun accommodation which is wonderfully positioned amongst the trees - I particularly liked the access to the facilities of Flamboyant Hotel which boasts a beautiful pool & bar area as well as beachside seating. A good all-rounder.

    Unique accommodations with tree houses that feel private. Enjoy the bushbaby feeding experience every evening at 7pm! The rooms are nice, but the biggest perk is having access to the Flamboyant hotel pool and bar area across the street. Felt like you got the best of both worlds: A relaxing backpacker retreat + the amenities of a beach hotel. Huge shoutout to Wayne and his staff for being so accommodating, and really going above and beyond to make stay so enjoyable. We will be back!!!! - Philip

    We had a really nice stay there. The staff was extremely helpful. Babybush feeding was a cool experience. It was good to have access to Flamboyant Hotel just in front (beach + pool).

    Very nice place! Good atmosphere and its awesome that you can use the pool and have access to the beach. Wayne the owner was very helpful, and the straff were really friendly. Only minus was that the water in the bathroom and in the shower at Stilts are a bit salty. But in Flamboyant there are fresh water. Would also been great if they would have had a self serviced kitchen. If I come back to Diani this is the place I would stay at!

    Would really recommend this place! All staff members are so welcoming and wonderful. Wayne (the manager) ensures every guest has the best experience, really appreciate him reserving a taxi for me and other guests at a fair price which is hard to find. Great atmosphere to relax and meet others, and really cool to feed bush babies! The tent was charming and as a Stilts guest you have free access to the loungers on the beach at Flamboyant hotel with security!

    We had a wonderful stay at Stilts. From the moment we arrived the staff were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. The lounge/bar in the treehouse created a great vibe and the nightly bushbaby feeding isn't overrated. Having access the the hotel pool across the street is a huge perk. It's a huge beautiful pool with warm water and heaps of lounge chairs. Would avoid doing laundry here as ours came back dirty. Otherwise everything was fantastic, the perfect place to stay in Diani.

    The campsite is south of the main Diani beach area (which is quite long) and a fair distance away from Mombasa. It has a mixture of tents and cabins too sleep in to which WiFi and charging points are restricted to the reception/bar area due to the solar water heating and power charging. The campsite is open to the wildlife meaning that precautions should be taken as guests are advised to not store food in the rooms/tents because of the local prim-apes. Breakfast and Dinner options are extras.
