This hostel is in a great location! Super close to the port, bus terminal and beach. We loved Jimmy and Maria. They were very friendly and welcoming. We just wish they had given us specific advice when we asked for recommendations about beaches and things to do instead of responding with "everything!" Also, the wifi is a little spotty.

Very friendly and clean hostel! There is always someone available in the lobby at any hour to help with anything you need and make sure everything is running smoothly. We want to go back!

This is a very lovely hostel with friendly staff. The rooms are fine and are clean. We just had problems with no WiFi connectivity for 2 days which was a nuisance.

I had an excellent time staying at Jimmy's Hostel! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had booked a bed in the 4-bed dorm, but upon arrival they gave me a bed in a nice apartment style room for no extra charge! The hostel was very close to the beach, and there were great views from the rooftop patio! Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed Jimmys! I would recommend it. He picked us up from the port and dropped us back off when we needed to leave. His daughter Maria is so sweet! She greets each guest when they arrive and is helpful in anyway she can be. Downside is the beds weren't very comfy and the wifi doesn't really work in the rooms but those were minor issues overall. It's right next to the beach and close to town also. Thanks for having us Jimmy and Maria!

I really enjoyed my stay at Jimmy's. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. The prices are so reasonable and the room we stayed in was amazing so clean and so much more than we were expecting. With a nice pool as well. The location is perfect with the main square of Parikia right across the road. One of my favourite stays! Thank you

Maria and Jimmy were so great to us when we stayed always helpful with lifts to and from the port and any other information we required. As a group of two we were given two huge bedroom and great facilities which were way Above our expectations!

Couldn't recommend any higher! Jimmy and his daughter Maria are some of the loveliest people I've met on my travels, always happy to help you out or just say hello. We booked a 4 bed dorm and got a private apartment, complete with balcony and small kitchenette. Everything was lovely and we extended our stay. Walking distance to everything in Parikia and the bus stop and port. Not quite a party hostel but the value for money is incomparable. We feel so privileged to have stayed here - thank you!

A nice hostel complex! You might have to look for Jimmy in his basement apartment if he's not at the main lobby office ;) Or then just call him, the phone number is on the office door!

Kitchen in room was a nice plus! Rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels were given. Location was amazing, walking distance to everything and central to all other towns. Would recommend renting quads to go around to the other city's from there. Maria was very helpful and went out of her way to get us information. We were picked up from the ferry which was nice, as we didn't know where we were going at first! Lovely place to stay overall!

Jimmy's place is clean and in a good position...not to far from port or city center. Very close to the beach in Parikia. Maria is a helpful host and she cares very much about your stay.

Beautiful hostel with spacious rooms, clean bathrooms and nice patio only a five minute walk to beaches and restaurants. Jimmy is super friendly and picked us up at the port without us asking and really made sure we had a good stay. It's a quiet place but very very nice for the price
