The staff is very friendly, even one night went out with one of the workers! and helpful and the place is really clean. I think they can help a little more with things to do in ochi!


Had an excellent stay at the Reggae Hostel. Shelley and the staff were always on hand and so very helpful with all of our questions and organising. The private room was very spacious and aircon was a nice surprise as well! Excellent location, with in walking distance of everything and free access to the private beach was perfect. Highly recommend staying here!


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.
