By far the best stay in Jamaica! Great value for money and it was soo relaxing. Julia is a great host and gives very useful advice on trips around the island.

Julia is such as nice host and the place is beautiful. Unfortunately it is located a little up the hill from downtown so you need a taxi in order to get somewhere.

This place has a really friendly hostel vibe to it, making it a great place to chill out and meet other travelers. However, some of the facilities are a bit lacking - my bunk bed squealed like a pig every time one of us moved for example. But the garden / pool area is really nice, somewhat making up for it. Because of the location, you need to take taxis to get anywhere (particularly at night), but they are relatively inexpensive.

We stayed at Birdsnest for 2 nights. It was okey, the staff were very friendly and cool, and Julia the owner was super kind to drive us to the airport for free. We stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm and it was good. The beds were a little squeaky but it was alright. Bathroom good and clean. The pool was nice and clean as well. The kitchen could use a renovation but it worked. It's a 10-15 minute walk to Ironshore centrum where u can find a great supermarket, restaurants and other cool stuff.

We started our first backpacking trip at this hostel and we loved it! The atmosphere is cool and Julia is really friendly. It's located in a safe neighbourhood, and it takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the nearest grocery store, where there are some cafes, shops and an ATM in the same area. Montego Bay is 10 minutes away by car, and it's easy to find a route taxi, which is a cheap and safe alternative. Would definetely recommend this hostel for other adventurous backpackers!
