Reggae hostel starts with positive vibes from when you meet the staff. They are all so chilled & friendly and ready to help when they can. The grounds are designed to encourage people to interact so you will undoubtedly get talking to other people. We were a large group of volunteers and met lots of people during our stay. Even...

The people who work here are great. The atmosphere is wonderful. It is a very clean hostel that has a great vibe to it. It is also really close to halfway tree, which is the transportation hub in Kingston. The only downside was that the private room I needed the A/C turned on by the front desk. It also couldn't...

I have always loved this place! Not because it has high end finishes or includes all my meals and drinks on site, but because you will meet free spirited people from all over the world and the staff really looks out for and takes care of you. The "concierge" desk at the Reggae Hostel is the best in Jamaica. When... More

I had a great time here. The staff were incredibly friendly and fun loving. The staff makes an effort to organize evening outings just about every night. The location was very convenient for access to public transportation as well as some of the sights in Kingston. There were some local restaurant gems nearby as well.

Really enjoyed my time here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They suggest nights out and make arrangements for whoever wants to go, so there's always people to meet and go places with, which is amazing if you're traveling alone. I was also worried before I went that it'd be all 21 year old backpackers and I may feel... More

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
