If there is any option bigger than Excellent I would definitely go for it to review this beautiful place. Every morning you will see an epic scenery of Montego Bay from the top of the mountain. You can leave things go from where you used be in and just let the peaceful nature cure your exhausted body and mind by lying down on the hammock at the terrace. Oh and with a bottle of Life Juice!

They emailed us about airport pickup, but never answered to our 3 miles asking for there servicw, no one was at the airport had to call them and wait.


Cedar Ridge was the perfect end to a wonderful week in Jamaica. Looking back, it could also have been the perfect start. Arlene and her family made us feel very welcome and she was very helpful with her local knowledge.

Hello Patrick, Thank you so much for your kind comments, I hope you arrived home alright and that your daughter got back safely, having had a great time with her friends. Please contact on your next visit to the Caribbean and hopefully visit with us. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and share your light love and of course music,


The hostel is far from the attractions, the beaches and from everything ... Even if the hostel has a beautiful view doesn't compensate for how far it is, the person who is in charge of the hostel (Lisa) is rude and every time we asked about places to go she just didn't know anything - Cedar Ridge didn't have a curfew but the few times we got there past midnight Lisa would be very off. I wouldn't recommend this hostel has more cons that pros isn't clean, bad service, far for walking distance.

Dear guest, we apologize for the awful experience described above & hope it did not spoil your Jamaica experience. I had to leave the hostel for personal reasons & left Lisa in charge. She is honest, careful about security & familiar with hostel operations. But she has not yet completed her customer service or island knowledge training, resulting in service delivery gaps. We will investigate your comments about cleanliness. We confidently offer you 2 free nights when you next visit.
