I really enjoyed my stay at JamboHouse. The guest house is located in the centre of the town of Lamu in a quiet part of town. My room was clean and comfortable and so was the separate bathroom. Arnold, the owner of JamboHouse is a very friendly guy and can arrange many tours and activities at very affordable prices. The balcony is amazing and has great views, free tea/coffee, and it's a good place to meet the other guests. Highly recommended for budget travellers!
