I highly recommend this place if you're visiting Kingston. The staff Is amazing and very helpful, it's safe (they have security guard at night), they offer Jamaican breakfast everyday for only 300 jmd and the huge backyard with some art and a bar to hang out in at night is just perfect. I'm definitely going back to the Reggae hostel!

This is the fantastic place to stay in Kingston. Best price, nice rooms, comfy beds, spacious outdoor seating, nice bar area, chill living room, decent sized kitchen, great location for the hostel, and the awesome staff. Breakfast in the morning (at an additional cost, just 300$ as of Dec 2014) is worth a good start in the morning. They can... More

The hostel has a nice outside hangout spot. Good facilities. I met people from all over the world while... More

I stayed here in September 2014. It is a very nice place, specially if you are into reggae since they play it at the bar every night. Moreover and the most important feature is its location. Reggae hostel in Kingston is quite near to the Bob Marley Museum, Tuff Gong Records and the National Art Gallery so it was easy... More

This is my first time staying in the hostel and I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 days that I stayed there. It is very inexpensive and hostel staff are very friendly. They are flexible enough to accommodate last minute reservations or cancellations without any extra charges. Though there are lot of people coming and going every day, the hostel is very... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights and enjoyed the experience. The staff are very hospitable and were always at hand to help. The hostel is well equipped with a good common area, bar, huge backyard, books, computer and wi-fi. Everything was fine except for the Wi-fi which hardly worked at all throughout my stay. The communal computer worked... More

The Reggae hostel is the best! I arrived having messed up my bookings and they were readily available to make room for me at a cheaper price! It has an amazing backyard to chill and the guests who go there are generally really nice and cool people. The staff were amazing, caring and took us out for drinks and parties.... More
