“Friendly, no-frills guesthouse, great location, budget price”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

If you're looking for a safe, no-frills guesthouse at a budget price, The Durham could be the answer. It's conveniently located in a quiet, residential street 15 minutes by taxi from downtown for around US$5 (or by bus for less than $1). The guesthouse does not offer food but there are lots of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. I felt no danger walking in the neighborhood day or night. The guesthouse staff are friendly, helpful and honest. I left my camera in a communal area one night and the manager gave it back to me in the morning.
