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.

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

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 ;-)

U get what you pay for !!! The price was very cheap for the duration of my stay. The rooms were not clean, iron didn't work , and there was no towels or rags, or hot water !Luckily for me I used the hotel to sleep only! The people were friendly I must say. But I wouldn't come back for comfort. If your looking for a place to crash overnight this hotel is recommended! If you want comfort and relaxation this is not the hotel for u!!!

All of the staff at Reggae Hostel in Ochi, were very kind, caring, professional and looked after you to make sure you are having a great time. There are many fun organized activities to participate in. Staff go out of their way to help you or answer your questions. The hostel is very safe, but they do play music at night, so sometimes its hard to sleep. My only minor complaint is that there was no soap in the bathroom to wash your hands. Overall,one of the best hostels i've stayed and well worth

The best thing of Reggae Hostel (apart from its perfect location right on the beach) is its staff. All the guys were super friendly, helpful and a great part of our trip! Would recommend it to anyone!

Reggae hostel staff Chris, Andre and Shelly made my stay a special one. I stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and it was the best experience I ever had. The property is located next to the beach and hostel staff provides you with the pass to access the beach for free. Hostel is very clean and staff is very helpful. Kudos to the staff for that. I was able to make good friends there and Reggae Hostel will always be close to my heart. Keep the good work.

Great hostel. Lovely staff - miss you guys!! Perfect location minutes from the beach, close to Dunns river falls - make sure you go to the small one as well as the main tourist one. Close to all shops, restaurants etc. Dorms are ok, clean and ok wifi - can get a bit hot but they have fans! Outside area is great for chilling with other guests. Loved this place would def return :)
