    A place where people not only become friends but also distant relatives”

    Distant Relatives is everything a traveller can wish for. The hostel is beautifully located, quiet and wild at once. It’s truly a place where people of all kinds come together; I haven’t experienced such a strong community feeling anywhere else. The place is absolutely clean and the kitchen is one of the finest in the whole area. There are tons of chill out areas in and around the hostel but if you’re up for a drink or other fun stuff there is always somebody to hang out with. The beach is only a few minutes away, which allows for late night swims to experience the amazing bioluminism. The staff is friendly and helpful, and also offer activities (sunset dhow, snorkelling etc.). The bar is usually fullest on Fridays with beer bong and pizza, and the DR team definitely knows how to throw a good party. What’s not to like?

    Unique gem of East Africa”

    This Eco-lodge backpackers has everything; based on sustainable ethics it's a true inspiration for daily life. The staff are very helpful and sweet, great food, good prices, nice communal spaces to meet interesting locals and travellers, beautiful location, nice music, organised activities daily, amazing chill out areas... this list goes on and on. I really appreciate the attention to detail and care for every aspect. Will be back for sure, next time with a bunch of friends.

    Staff friendliness and hospitality, great value and super comfortable. The best place to stay in Kilifi by far!

    Every staff member is sooo friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful with a functional design using permaculture principles. Meals are great with delicious specials every night and the rooms are beautifully designed and very comfortable. I would recommend this joint to Obama anytime..
