We had a great stay at reggae hostel, the staff were brilliant and we had a great time partying with Nicky. Out room was small but had all we needed and the bathrooms were all great and numerous. Location wAs good we found a great restaurant nearby called Hamiltons, cheap and v friendly. (On Burlington ave). Usains bolts bar is an easy walk and wS a fun place to visit. Would def return if we came to Kingston again. Thank you Verity and Tab (uk)

We decided to walk from Knutsfrod Express station to the hostel, and it wasn't a pleasant walk. But in general it's a good lokation, and taxis are not too expensive... Although you're still pretty far from the city center) Everything else about this hostel is perfect, especially their kitchen and meals they cook!

Only stayed one night. The staff was great! There was free coffee and tea in the morning and a very affordable delicious breakfast. The staff arranged taxi pick up for us to the airport. They seem to have a lot of day trips.

The hostel staff was the best part of my experience at Reggae Hostel because they were great at organizing daily excursions for tourists and were helpful with giving information about Jamaica. The hostel is very secure as there is security working 24/7. There is food and drinks available at the hostel as well, which is convenient. Also, the hostel is located near Halfway Tree so there is a lot of ATM's, shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

I had a great 3-night stay at the Reggae Hostel. The staff is what makes this place great! They're very friendly and always have great activities planned nightly. I plan to book this hostel when I return to Kingston next year.

Great experience there. The staff was amazing and the value of rooms was good for your money. Best part is that the staff takes you out at night. They keep you safe while your out in the community at night. They also cook great food in the hostel for an affordable price. I recommend that anyone who goes to Jamaica, stay at Reggae Hostel.

Though Kingston itself shall not be considered as a prime destination in Jamaica - except if you're into music studios and Ganja :)) - if you are to stay in Kingston and are travelling backpacking or alone, the reggae hostel is the place to stay. Friendly staff, a bar inside the hostel, and activities organised daily + great guests to share your plans and time with, nothing to complain about :). So as they say there, "Yeah Man" book the reggae hostel :)

Excellent hostel. Friendly and helpful staff, chill atmosphere and located right beside halfway tree (the transport centre). Would recommend the hostel to anyone staying in Kingston. The neighbourhood is so very nice and safe by Kingston standards. Beds were clean, place to cook and store food in the fridge.

We slept in a 6 dorm bedroom. The room was clean and had an air condishener. The bathroom was also really clean with a big shower and hot water! The Hostel had a big yard with some chairs and a bar. We are only stayed two nights and we could walk from the Hostel to the next shopping mall in 20min. The stuff was also really nice and the wifi worked good.
