My plans changed and I decided to stay in Kingston for the remainder of my stay. I found this spot for $25 USD per night, shared bath. The location is great, close to everything. Upon arrival I thought I made a bad mistake, this place needs updating in the main house. I was pleased to discover my room was in... More

I stayed in the cabin. One queen bed, a chair, a mosquito net and a dresser. Large tents offer a dorm type area for single travelers. They have bigger rooms as well. Great place to relax. Close to the zoo. Close to bus route and street venders. For $30ish US someone will pick you up/drive you to the airport. Cold,... More

We stayed first at the outdoor kind of cabins, which were the cheapest. The room looked a bit like a prison cell, and we got bitten by many mosquitos during the night, since the cabin is not very well isolated from outside. Noise isolation was also a problem. Then me moved to the suite which is a king sized bedroom,... More

We stayed here at the suggestion of a friend. It is in a very safe neighborhood and is a great value for Kingston. The owner drove me to the airport at 4 am for a very good price (I think it was $30USD) and after checking in, they upgraded our room for free from a tiny room to a full... More

It's conveniently located in a quiet, residential street 15 minutes by taxi from downtown for around US$5 (or by bus for less than $1). The guesthouse does not offer food but there are lots of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. I felt... More
