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

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

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

Great hostel to stay for cheap. Excellent place to meet fellow travelers.Its in a relatively quiet part of town but walking distance to the markets and vendors. They also have breakfast and dinner on the house. The staff is really helpful and will arrange activities and find drivers/taxis to get you around town or get you to the next city.... More
