We stayed 3 nights in november 2016 and truly Loved our stay. All in all this is the best hostel in Kingston and definitely a must-stay when you want to experience the party-vibe of Jamaica Pro's: - party & music every night - but OUTSIDE, after 10pm quiet in the hostel (so no need to worry about night rest). When... More

Very friendly welcome,bautifully painted courtyard including a bar. Local cooked breakfast upon request, free coffee or tea any time. Ideal for backpackers who want to socialise. For example I went to a nearby reggae party with a group of people. And when the people at the front desk helped me to organize a trip to the Blue Mountains a young... More

Great experience there. The staff was amazing and the value of rooms was good for your money. Best part is that the staff takes you out at night. They keep you safe while your out in the community at night. They also cook great food in the hostel for an affordable price. I recommend that anyone who goes to Jamaica,... More

Very friendly and organises transport to evening events like Sunday at Dub Club. Not all the lockers in dorm rooms are lockable. Otherwise it has all you would expect and a nice little bar outside. The location is conveniently central too.

A typical backpacker hostel, very friendly staff and good security. Well located near the Halfway Tree transport centre for travel across the island and supermarket etc close by. Free coffee and a good WiFi connection, although no hot water in the showers, but it's so hot you don't need it...a good option
