    Perfect for students or people on a budget, great service and prime location between major bars on the beach! It was honestly the best vacation experience ever. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for cheap good quality accommodation, and top notch service!

    I think you can just take a local matatu to Diani Beach. Stilts is located quite central in Diani.
