I stayed at the Reggae Hostel in Kingston for about 4 days. It was cheap and within walking distance to supermarkets, central bus station, reastaurants, fast food, banks etc. Very friendly staff who served a free meal at 18 o'clock everyday. 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

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

it was difficult to get there since there are no signs or whatsoever. a little too noisy, but the staff was very nice and has nearby restaurants that can serve good takeout jamaican vegetarian food. good for the price you pay, quiet neighbourhood.

Reggae hostel meets all the expectations that a hostel must have. Well located in the city, clean, nice rooms and dorms, clean and equipped kitchen, and good social atmosphere. Besides all this the people working on it is very friendly and helpful. It helped to make our Kingston experience unique. Highly recommended.

Friendly people, always a big smile. Clean hostel, always willing to help you out. On Sunday we had a free BBQ, which was great. The atmosphere is easygoing, a good stay for a good price. You can park your car for free, it's easy to find with your GPS. The kittens were cute too..;)
