Had a great stay at Reggae Hostel. We stayed for one night at the beginning of our trip and one night at the end of our trip and is a great place to launch your adventures from. We had a private room which had aircon, own bathroom and a giant bed. Very affordable rates, safe & secure, great laid back atmosphere and great location. There is free wi-fi and free computers to use and breakfast is included. The bar outside is pretty chilled too - cheap red stripes, and Scotty and Zana are great.
After visiting Kingston I feel all the rumors which Id previously heard about how dangerous it is are completely untrue. I didn't once feel threatened or in danger (and neither did my girlfriend). I didn't see any violence in Jamaica at all in the 10 days I was there (compared to 2 brawls and a gangster walking down the street with a handgun in the 10 days I was in the US). Highly recommended country and hostel to visit. One of my favourite countries I've been too (out of about 15-18).
