    JamboHouse is a very nice hostel, at a good location in the tiny old town of Lamu. The hostel is located in an old traditional building of this region, which means that it may not be super fancy and all that, but it provides you with an experience of staying in a traditional house of the region. Plus it has a wonderful rooftop terrace with deckchairs, which are wonderful for sunbathing or watching the night sky. The manager of the hostel is very helpful and friendly. Safety is not an issue.

    This is definetly the cleanest hostel I have ever been to. You can walk barefoot all day and won't even have a little dust on your feet. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed it so much. Arnold can organize great tripts for you without the stress of bargaining and being asked extra tips from the captains/giudes. Breakfast is great and Arnold happily recommends you local places to eat lunch an dinner. Make sure you eat Biryani at Island Dishes on friday :) 100% recommendation.

    We enjoyed every moment we spent there.Lots of choices for breakfast accompanied with fresh cut fruits and juice, coffee and tea all day long,perfect little garden balcony sun chairs where you can read,typical Lamu house with swahili decorations,what more to ask. Arnold is full of information about Lamu or Kenya in general (and he is very honest, rare thing we encountered as tourists). If you book a tour trough him,he will make sure you get everything you agreed for (better than "dock boys").

    The time I spent in lamu, and specifically at Jambo house are some of my fondest memories of Kenya. Arnold will go out of his way to ensure all of your needs are met. The complimentary breakfast is a real treat, especially the fabulous juices. The place is spotlessly clean and the location a short walk from main street and harbour front, restaurants and museums. A fantastic place that I wish to visit again in the future. Try and get up to the rooftop during the call to prayer. Atmospheric.
