Our group of 5 came in to start our vacation in Kenya at Diani beach and we had a phenomenal experience at Stilts backpackers. Wonderful location and so great to be able to use the amenities at flamboyant (sister hotel on the beach front). Very secure, excellent staff and Wayne the owner went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our stay amazing. Would recommend to anyone!

We only came to feed bush babies and to have a dinner. Food was good and prices were quite adequate. Drink prices especially lower than other Diani places. We had nice time and good dinner would gladly come back if we had more time.

We planned to stay here for 3 nights but extended our stay to over a week. The staff is just supernice and really helpfull with everything. Also the owner Wayne is a super chill guy who helped us organize several trips including a diving trip with a good discount. The busbaby feeding time is a highlight but the facilities are worth mentioning as well. It's a relatively cheap place to stay as backpackers. But we could also enjoy the swimming pool and guarded beach area of the Flamboyant hotel, just across te street.

An amazing place to be, a unique concept. As you will have access to other amenities in flamboyant hotel which is across the road and have access to beach it adds more value to the whole stay. The free flowing coffee in the morning is always a cherry on the top for a stay.
