The list of my compliments for this little oasis on the hill in Negril is lengthy. Sue, the host answered my many questions via email with rapid responses and was helpful from start to finish. Not only does she show up with a smile, but sometimes she even brings cake! It was fun to see her take pleasure in delivering something tasty that she baked at home and iced on-site for the guests. She was quick to answer questions, share her stories and listen to those of others. The cleaning staff was friendly and kept things nice for sure. It was great to see Ms. Hyacinth in such uplifted spirits as she went about her day hardly ever without a great big smile. Martel, the night security guard offers more than piece of mind. If you ask nicely, he will also sort out some pretty outstanding meals in the evening! I took him up on this offering more than once and it was a solid decision every time - the local fish and veg were especially fantastic. He too was quick to share a story or answer local flora and fauna questions, or just chill out for an evening chat over the coals of the grill. (Somehow he manages to do all of these things, yet still recognizes every sound around the property while in action...it was kind of impressive really.) The property itself exceeded my expectations considering the budget pricing! So many thoughtful little details were in place to make sure that people had the ability to either just chill in their own space to recharge or to congregate in some of the social areas. Nothing was super fancy, but anything you might need had been thought of and sorted. Budget pricing for a clean comfy bed in safe and beautiful location that is less than a ten minute walk to the beach! Oh yeah, they also had quite a range of affordable options in rooms; they had everything from hammock shelters to single rooms, dorm style rooms, and even a couple rather adorable little cottage type units on the property. Beyond enjoying the staff and the accommodations, meeting people from all over the world was definitely a treat. Sue has been doing something really right for a while it seems and I would be happy to go back or recommend it!

Property's Favorite Review
My 2nd time at Judy House. It's such a lovely place. The hostel is clear and tidy, hot water, and comfy beds. My girlfriend and myself had a private room and it it had a fan, nets and everything we needed. Sue (the friendly) owner made a really tasty coconut cake too we loved it. Judy House attracts interesting travellers too and has nice social areas to get to know everyone. Even a hammock to chill out in a lush green garden and relax all day. If you need a drink or snack there also an honesty bar so you don't need to leave for the day. Ideal for solo backpackers and couples.

Staff was helpful and friendly. The place was clean, well kept. I would stay here again. It was within walking distance of the beach. The picnic tables made it easy to mingle and get to know the other guests. They even called for me to get a ride. they have a mini bar that you can purchase snacks and beverages. There is also a community kitchen with the basics provided, salt pepper pans ect. In the room there is a mosquito net for sleeping and your own cup plate and eating utensil. It was fantastic!!

Tucked away, quiet, forested. Get a single room...inexpensive. Friendly, night guard (Montel). Be sure to get under Sue's British skin. I sang, "Run Around Sue", "A Boy named Sue (how DO you do?)" "I've got a Crush on Sue"...anything aggrevating to break her exterior. Friendly staff. You won't regret your stay! Enjoy!

The place is really beautiful and the staff super friendly. Very good value for money - much better than would you get if you book something nearby the beach. (Route) taxis are relatively cheap and the drive is short if you want to enjoy the beach/nightlife. By the way, most places at the beach of free sunbeds if you consume something so its really not worth staying at of the overpriced beach places. My friend and I liked it a lot there.
