Reggae Mansion is a beautiful old building and it's a really nice hostel - the beds are capsules but they are big and airy and don't feel claustrophobic. The big balcony is a lovely place to chill out. As usual, the wifi is really erratic and it would be great if the staff were a little more helpful (perhaps speaking english a bit better) but can't really complain about anything. The bathrooms are good.

It is a nice and cheap hostel to stay. They provide a great privacy to every single passenger sleeping at night.

Great atmosphere and staff. Location is supremely central. Only point to pick on is that the noise isolation is pretty bad! Bring some ear plugs if you're gonna stay here!

Had a wonderful stay. All the staff here are very friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were always very clean. Loved the idea of having the self contained pods!

It's the 2nd time I have stayed here and both times they were very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the lady at reception that lent me a pair of shoes when mine broke :)

I was expecting a slightly better hotel for the price but it was overall good. Positives- The decoration was really nice and the bar and reception staff were very friendly. Close to getting pretty much anywhere in Georgetown. A few restaurants and corner shops nearby. Easy to get a taxi (although I asked the reception to book me one and she said to just go to the street to find one which wasn't very helpful) Negatives- Breakfast left much to be desired... a strange mix of asian and british break

One of the best places I have ever stayed in! Right in the heart of Georgetown within walking distance of 2 big malls which have everything you could need including cinema and restaurants. The bar downstairs is handy and has pool table serves food all day and there's seeting outside a balcony upstairs to sit and chill on of an evening! Bus takes you to the beech in 35min. Best thing about this place was the staff! In particular Charlie who will keep you entertained
