More stylish and security conscious than the average backpackers, Diani Backpackers has dorms and privates in a lovely house. Come to party at the 24-hour bar and pool, chill out in the lush garden, or catch up on sleep in the baobab dorm, where beds wrap around the trunk of a tree. There's a volleyball court, great daily menu and lockers. Turn right after KFI supermarket.
Must be at least 18 years old
very cool place, delicious and cheap food, cocktails, comfortable beds, the best staff 💜 I would give 10 stars, the price of a penny and the quality is on top. this is a real hotel 😍 you feel at home with such cool people 💜
I was sleeping in the room for 6 which is very small. The bathroom was really not clean at all, with cold water. We were 6 friends in the room and we couldn't have the keys to close the door. During one night, there was a party in the hostel and many people from outside came into our room. It was very unsafe and every weekends phones are stolen in the room. Its not normal that we cannot even close the door during day and night. The price per night is not expensive but they make a lot of profit with food, breakfast that is not included, even bottles of water. I dont recommand this place. But it can be good for partying.
Had traveled to Diani from Nairobi to celebrate my partner on his birthday, a friend we were with recommended that we step out of our hotel, Baobab, and go check out Diani Backpackers. We get there, sat at the counter and we were having a grand time, minding our business. All over sudden a Caucasian lady comes with a bouncer and waiter to say we have stolen her phone. The exact words used by the white guy she was with is ….. “ black people do not have an iPhone culture” so of course how can we own iPhones… extremely condescending!! Three of us own iPhones so we got them out and asked what they were, does it mean we can only own them through theft!!!!!!! Needless to say, we were thrown out of the establishment like dogs, then they proceeded to search our bags. I have marks on my body from this. Extremely dehumanizing and to make it worse, this happened to me IN MY OWN COUNTRY Such a disgrace…
Security and hygine are not on the highest level. This is a very loud, party hostel, so be aware that there is almost music 24/7 before you book a dorm room. The wifi is also very poor. The staff is very friendly and the pool is very nice, on the other sinde.
Amazing place with amazing vibes! Lots of yang people and travellers from all over the world! 5 min from the beach and few minutes in boda from the bazar. Good service and again- amazing vibe! When we arrived we were sad for not having any hot water in the shower but it was actually a good thing considering the heat during the day. Couldn’t choose a better place for this week in Diani. Recommended for travellers!
