Welcome to Diani's #1 hostel! Think of us as friends with an awesome house, a pool and a bar :)
Diani Backpackers is located in Diani Beach, Kenya. The region is locally often referred to as ‘South Coast’ because of its geographical position south of the historical harbor town of Mombasa. From the gate of the hostel you are only minutes away from the walking onto bright white beach and dipping your feet in the warm water of the Indian Ocean.
The un-official birth of Diani Backpackers took place many years ago when by chance a bunch of individual travelers met in a bar in Diani. Each of them had initially intended for their stay to be a short one but as is often the case in Diani, had fallen in love with the place. Looking for a way to be able stick around for a while, they joined forces and rented a house with a big garden and a pool. Word soon got out and people travelling through Diani started flocking to this house to chill, drink and crash on beds sofa’s, pool loungers etc. Not long after that a make-shift bar was built in the garden (which now serves as our Baobar Dorm) and the idea for the hostel you see today was born.
Since those early days we have evolved into an award winning, professionally run hostel with all the amenities the modern-day backpacker needs. We have built an amazing team that truly feels like family and who will make sure your stay will be unforgettable.
But even though we have evolved into a professional business, we have always managed to stick to our roots: To be that house with a pool and a bar where people from all corners of the world come together to chill, talk, drink and enjoy. But don’t take our word for it, come check it out for yourself and book your stay now!
