    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!

    This place has the most amazing staff, with the best service. The food is also incredible with lots of options for vegeterians. They also give you access to the pool of their other establishment that is right accross the road, facing the beach. I definitely recommend the place, the atmosphere is incredible.

    LOVED our stay here, very convenient location especially with access to flamboyant hotel directly across the street. Staff were helpful with all our needs, and very welcoming. Loved the atmosphere and natural environment of stilts, what a cool experience staying in cabins/treehouses, feeding bush babies and enjoying the beauty of Diani beach. Will be back! :)

    My husband and I stayed at the Stilts for three nights and absolutely loved it. The location, atmosphere and facilities are great for an hostel. The bar/lounge is a relaxing space and the food is good value for money. We stayed in one of the cottages. Simple and functional, it was great value for money. Special thanks go to the owner and all of the staff, who were absolutely wonderful and really made our stay special!

    Stilts Backpackers is an awesome place to chill for the weekend. My treehouse was clean and comfortable. Feeding the bushbabies is definitely a highlight!

    Great place in Diani beach, especially if you like nature. Every day at 7 pm they feed bushbabies ( wild ones), and it is common to see monkeys around. There are also many birds around. Beach is 5 min on foot, and other facilities are nearby. There are a bar and a restaurant with OK prices on the premises.
