I stayed here in September 2015 during a research trip. Three things (two positive, one less so) stand out. First, the staff were helpful and kind. There were always three or four staff around to help and I never had problems navigating. In particular, the early-morning staff, who cleaned up, did a great job and were always cheerful and nice....

They're very friendly and helpful which goes a long way in my book. I'll never forget my night out in Kingston with Nikki (one of the hostel staff)...so much fun!!!... More

Daily and nightly activities bring everyone together, cheap cooked meals for breakfast lunch and dinner, massive backyard with a bar to socialise, friendly welcoming staff who love to chat and laugh. The atmosphere hits the sweet spot; super friendly and social... More

Deciding to begin our trip to Jamaica at this hostel was the best possible decision we could have made! Even though we did our research ahead of time, it paled in comparison to the information we got from the staff and other travelers. Other than the extremely friendly and helpful staff and great vibe among the guests, the hostel is... More
