Liked: Arnold was a very good host and went out of his way to help me and find stuff for me to do.

Disliked: There was no-one else at the hostel when I was there, but that was pretty much the same as everywhere in Lamu. They seemed to have been scared off by pirates.

Liked: Arnold is a wonderful host who shares his tips and local contacts so that his guests are able to make the most of their time on Lamu. Great roof terrace with wifi.

Disliked: nighttime noise during the festival - but that would have been an issue anywhere !
