“Great budget homely accommodation”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

What a great place to stay for the price with really friendly, casual, and welcoming staff and good people. It has a very homely feel to it. You feel like you are staying at an extended friend's house rather than a commercialized hostel. The house is quiet, clean, and most of time empty. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere but it is located near the airport (short-cab ride) - making a great place to stop by before or after your late or red eye flight in and out of montego bay. My flight arrived late at night and I had to wait for my friends to arrive the next day's evening. So I booked the bird's nest to stay over night and all of next day. What I appreciate most is that they weren't strict about the check in/out time. I came in at 10pm and left at 4 pm the next day. I was immediately welcome by the staff and some of the guests that night who were chilling by the pool drinking and eating pizza. I joined them and actually decided to sleep outside on the couches by the pool. All in all a very relaxing and awesome time. Will definitely stop by again.

If you plan to stay in Montego Bay and travel on a short budget, then Bird's Nest is the perfect place to stay! The staff is very welcoming and tries to help you out wherever they can. The Hostel is very clean and there's a relaxing atmosphere around the pool. If you read about Bird's Nest being too far away from everything then dont worry about that..its not THAT far and taxis to downtown or Hipstrip are really cheap. I highly recommend this place and would stay there again!

I stayed in Montego Bay before but concerning prices, cleanliness and staff the Bird´s Nest was the best hostel I stayed in in Montego Bay. It´s quite far from the city but easy to get there by route taxi and it´s close to the airport.

Room Tip: I stayed in two different rooms and they were both great, so it doesn´t really matter which one you...

We stayed in Montego Bay for three days. The hostel is clean and tidy. The house is absolutely beautiful, with a stunning view and the pool is an awesome place to hang out. The owners are really laid back people and helped us a lot with our traveling plans. We went on a trip to the Mayfield falls, I can absolutely recommend it! You can take kite surfing classes there, too, and should you have the time, I recommend you do it. We ended up just watching for a day, which was fun, too, but next time, we will sure try it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the dorm, which was absolutely fine. If you're not looking to socialize with the ot...

The staff and other guests were very friendly and helpful. I learned alot about other places to visit and things to do. If you are traveling alone or in a group, this is a great place to stay.

Local supermarket and restaurants are not too far away.

It is conveniently located on the Ironshore Taxi route, and taxis from downtown will drop you off at the front gate, or to downtown will pick you up as they pass by. They will beep if they see you walking, so you can jump in.

The yard has alot of growing fruits and vegetables, so if you are lucky, you will get to see some in season.

Room Tip: If you are traveling alone, I recommend the single room. It has a private bath.

For anyone looking for somewhere nice, peaceful, beautiful with a good location- this is where you want to be! It is about 5 minutes from Montego Bay airport so you can easily get a taxi. It has a beautiful view of the sea, in a nice safe location and the place itself is lovely. Beautiful pool which is always clean, hammocks, and there's always someone around to chill with! The only thing that could beat the place itself is it's owner who is always willing to help out- she literally goes over and above the call of duty! The only problem I've had is that I can't stay away! And that's not even a problem because it's paradise here
