The Bird's Nest
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Its a great Hostel with a huge garden! The first day we arrived we got Coconut and Mango :) The owners are very chilled people. We spend nice evenings with a group of of people who lived there and felt comfortable. The owners organizated a tour to Mainfield Falls, what is more local than Dunn Falls or Y.S. Falls! Staying there was a good decision. The Hostel is clean and a true villa with pool and view to the sea. You can hang out there the hole day! The location is about 15-20 minutes from the doctors cave in a calm community. The owners are Kitesurf teachers. Its a little expensive so I didn´t tried it, but I guess there do a good job. Totally recommendable!

Room Tip: We had the private room! It was quiet big with a nice private bathroom.

Great house. Totally chilled atmosphere. Fantastic double hight living room with huge dinning table and sofas made a great hang out in the evenings or chill out place on the hot day. Swimming pool awesome and very clean. So were the bedrooms and bathrooms. It was very easy to make friends with other visitors and the owner/staff. In fact it felt like bunch of friends is renting a luxurious villa :) Owner/ staff have been living on the island for years and are full of great advice. Supermarket and few restaurants are actually only 15 min slow walk or 2 min by taxi. And to go to beach collective taxis are dead cheap and you never have to wait longer than few min for one to appear at the front. It's located in a quiet upmarket residential area and the center of Mon Bay is only a shirt ride by taxi. If ever again in the area will definitely stay in Birds Nest :))

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.
