Great hostel. Clean, spacious. Very friendly staff. Great location too!
Central in Ocho Rios, can organise tours, taxis trips etc. Very friendly staff and tasty BBQ!
We did not have TV, why wasn't there any TV, but we were so busy, but at nights I missed the TV with for the news. Also it would be nice if you did some painting for the room. Thanks also for the pass for the beach, that was great

The air conditioned full sized mattress bunk bed dorm was awesome!
Having a loaner guitar was a real plus.
I was a little disappointed that there was no kitchen to prepare some meal, hope they get that arranged in the nearer future. Seemed to me they had more private room accoomdations than dorms, so I didn't get the real hostel-feeling. Appreciated that you get free access to the beach if you're guest of the hostel.
Good starting point in Jamaica. Hostel is centrally located just a few steps from the beach. 3-story motel-style building with big courtyard fenced off from the rabble. Open-air buildings with no A/C. Always 86°F/30°C inside, which is fine of you are scantily attired. Area is a big let-off point for cruise ship tourists. Expected the usual hassles by vendors and taxi drivers. Supermarkets nearby. No hostel kitchen, but fridge and microwave available. Walking distance to Knutsford Bus. Good wifi.
I booked only for one night but i ended up staying 3 days ! Cheap dorms, some dorms a better than others But global is was great for the money you paye. The vibes are great a lot of backpackers from all over The world . The staff is nice and helpfull. Thanks for everthing.
Wonderful place I would stay there anytime.. The staff was so friendly and very helpful.
Super fun place with a great staff. Easy to meet people and get excursions arranged! Real family-like atmosphere.
Loved the Reggae hostel. Great spot on the beach and rooms were clean with aircon. Can't get wifi in all the rooms but common areas were good. Not really any kitchen facilities but a microwave and kettle. Would definitely go back
Thank you for everything!!! It was a great experience You have Helpful, Caring and Friendly Staff!! Excellent location - 1 minute from a beautiful beach and 1 minute from the main street full of shops and restaurants Secure. Clean. Hot Water. And extraordinary Jamaican coffee! I will definitively come back!
Really great place to stay cheap in Jamaica. Since I was very disappointed with Jamaica, mainly due to the rude guys all around and the cheesy and boring girls, this place was the exception due it was a new house, less than a block from the beach and the really nice staff you can find there.
Chris at the front desk is great to go out with at night. If you like a local scene, ask him to take you to Grasshoppa in the hills. The beach is a few steps away. No kitchen, but there is cheap local food steps away.
Great location, right near the beach in Ocho Rios, and good/cheap food options a short walk away. Staff were great, and there was a good area at the front of the hostel for travellers to mix. The dorms weren't the best I've seen, but they were clean enough and decent value for the location.
Seems to be the best option if you wanna stay central and cheap. It's a good place to meet people and it's clean. Everything you need is in walking distance. The rooms seems to be very different. I had a spacious dorm, but with no lockers. But it was not a big thing as I used a locker in another room. Bed were really comfortable, wifi a bit slow but working. There's free coffee as well, very important in the morning ;-)
