I've travelled all over Kenya and stayed in many, many different hostels, hotels, guest houses and apartments but never, in all my time in Kenya, have I ever been anywhere as welcoming, fun, exciting and friendly as South Coast Backpackers in Diani. Whether it's the lovely (and gorgeous) managers Louis, Kevin and Justin, the incredible pool and gardens (complete with wandering tortoises, picture-perfect coconut trees and newly constructed volley ball pitch), the amazing outdoor 24/7 bar or simply the wonderful atmosphere I don't know, but there's something about this place that makes it so hard to leave. The accommodation ranges from basic camping to lovely private en suite rooms so Backpackers is suitable for people traveling on any budget and the fresh cooked food is available from early morning to late at night, featuring daily specials of freshly caught seafood and local produce at amazingly low prices. Backpackers is the kind of place where people come to party - staying up until the early hours isn't tolerated, it's pretty much compulsory! The majority of guests tend to be in their twenties/ early thirties but really as long as you're up for a good time, anyone would enjoy staying here. The staff are lovely, the picturesque palm tree-clad beach just a few minutes walk away and a myriad of unbelievable bars and restaurants waiting just down the road. This is my second visit here and Backpackers is just as good as it was my first time - full of a varied mix of travelers from all over the world and home to a truly unique atmosphere. I genuinely believe I will be in contact with people I've met here for years to come and am already planning my return as soon as possible! For an affordable, exemplary, friendly and exciting stay in Diani South Coast Backpackers is really the only option!
