The location and house itself are beautiful and safe but a bit far of everything. The bedroom (private with bathroom) was nice and clean, but the Guest house seems to be managed by the guests. Kitchen and common areas are not clean and organized at all! It would be great if the owners take more care about this place since... More

Me and my GF stayed here for a while and really enjoyed it! Julie & Alex are doing a great job running the hostel and making sure everybody enjoys their stay. They offer acces to a private beach which is such an asset and really helps you to enjoy your vacation and catch a kitesurfing initiation if you are up... More

Stayed here in the dorm room for 4 nights. Comfy, reasonable facilities, nice pool. Be aware that the location is a little out of the way which can make it difficult and expensive to get around. However the staff are great and run some good day trips if there are enough people who want to go. Very relaxed place.

Julia the owner is a lovely lady and will take you shopping down the road and drop you off to the beach. It is located about 3.8km from the airport and off the main road... More

Very good, for relaxing and peace. Perfect getaway from busy city. Location is good and safe. 15 min to shop, routetaxis passing by every minute. Julia is amazing, made me feel like home, helpful and caring. Pool is nice, rooms are clean.

It was nice to stay there, the price is worth it and the dorms are good but the place is not clean at all the the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming at all! The staff is uninterested and doesn't really care therefore it's not possible to feel homely. It outside the city and a 15 minutes walk to the main... More

They organized a bbq party which was great, we had homemade german sausages, delicious!! Although it is in a residential area of Ironshore it is super easy to... More

One of the main negatives here is location. It's safe, but a little removed from everything, and just to get to one restaurant worth eating at is a loooong walk, the kind I wouldn't necessarily want to do at night alone. It takes taxis to get everywhere, which means the constant negotiation Jamaicans are known for. It gets old. But... More
