In response to Emmas review. All of my rooms have locks but the one, which you were not staying. Your yellow key on the chain was the one that would lock it. The house is refurbished old house, as my adds says. Not a brand new construction. The area is up and coming and I have many Duke students staying and after 3 years no one ever was assaulted or had a major issue with anyone in the neighborhood. This is America, and South and Durham, perhaps everyone coming shall read a little history of Durham. You can hear gun shots around Down Town city pretty much everywhere. The neighborhood around NCCU is a lot safer than it may appear, because it has a lot of students and police of the university.
