If you want to gain there are two steps:

1. Eat more calories than you burn

2. Work your muslces to failure 

When you're working out you don't need weights or a gym (although those will help you progress faster), you only need yourself. Pushups, pull-ups, chair dips, squats, lunges, planks, etc. Are all great strength building exercises and you don't need equipment to do them (except maybe the pull-ups). Work until you cannot possibly do another rep. You should feel so completely wasted in the muslces that you are training that it almost hurts. When you work your muscles to failure, they tear. Torn muscles will repair themselves and become bigger than before.

Try your best to eat plenty of good protein (lean meats, beans, nuts) and get PLENTY of water. Your muscle tissue needs water and protein to repair itself. You should be drinking at least one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day. Don't forget burpees, and crunches, and any other exercise that you can do without weights or equipment. There are PLENTY of options on this app.

Be patient about seeing results, they WILL come. Good luck.

This is the best advice for natural muscle gain. Sounds a lot like Mark Lauren's advice and training.

I competed in decathlon at that age and to increase strength my coach had me doing some powerlifting moves - heavy weight with just one rep. Squats/deadlifts/clean & press.
In the absence of those I used to do a LOT of pull-ups using tree branches, and basically anything I could hang off! 

I worked on muscle endurance with the legs and ran up a lot of steps. Or did lunges up them with weight or a bag on my back. 

Get imaginative, and use any opportunity you have to lift something.

Eat lots of proteins, like chicken, peanut butter and fish.

About strength do lots of plank, burpees, work with repetition with your body weight... you will get it!!
