To be honest, this is the second time I ever write a review, but I just felt that I had to, because this place left such a good impression. I have travelled on every continent, and if not the best, this place is definitely one of the best backpacker hostels I have ever been to.
It was extremely tidy and who could complain sleeping in a dorm with a huge Baobab-tree right in the middle of it? Well, the hangovers where horrible, and the hostel was responsible for them. The atmosphere was nice and cozy, everyone felt like they where one big family, so obviously we ended up partying a lot. The pool was never closed, so every night was a pool party with new and old friends as well as the dogs, cats and the rest of the zoo around. The music was pumping and once in a while the owners offered rounds of shots to pump up the party. Did I mention that the owners are French, so the food is very good compared to the price (very suitable for people traveling on a shoestring).
Diani is not known for it´s backpackers, but it´s luxury resorts on the beach. However this place is perfect for the backpackers what comes to the activities - a few minutes away from the beach and everything you need can be organized locally. The only thing I would complain about is the tab system in the bar - lookout how much you spend, because you do not need to handle cash before checking out!
