Wonderful staff! Eexcept the person who took an item from me. Wonderful location, walking distance to food,bank,market, beach and craft market. Well lite at night for those who love to stroll at night. Tourist security everywhere.


Very noisey hostel with music played til 11pm or later. Chris flirts with the women, especially the Europeans but seems ok. The older security guard offered me a private room for 'free' but I don't believe his intentions were pure. No hot water as it's only on during unsociable hours, and a towel must be hired. small lockers which cant store bags or suitcases. Unsure if I'd stay again had a hard time sleeping with all the noise, but the beach close by is a plus and it's private.


The price is reasonable, affordable and practical. It is excellent for us who have a narrow budget and still want to get away. The location is great because it is situated right in the hear of downtown Ocho Rios. I mean that ever amenity is within walking distance. I could not ask for more.

The Reggae Hostel Ocho Rios is such a nice place! The staff are super lovely, helpful and caring. The beach is two seconds away, there's shopping around it and the major places to go for a night out are also within walking distance! The only problem is that there is no kitchen and its missing a more intentional communal space for guests to hang out and meet. Plan for a great stay, not having to pay for much transport , except to attractions around, and buying food outside.

Cool staff took us party, go on a Tuesday to Shades. Good place cheap good wifi good location.


Loved this place! The staff - Scotty, Andre and Chris are great and the location is practically in the beach. Could be more organised activities in the day/evenings but all-in-all had a great time here. Make sure you ask Andre to sing the Bee Gees and get him to take you to Shades nightclub!


very kindly people! i definitely recommend this hostel !

Staff were friendly and polite and will tell you where all the good spots are to check out and will occasionally organise something in groups which was great. It was really a lovely place to stay and close to most things, even a KFC! The only problem my cousin and I encountered was the water pressure in the shower.
