Judy House is just great, it takes a day to get used to the people and the humidity in Jamaica and then it is paradise! Sue took us for a whole day trip, for breakfast, cliff diving in the blue hole, the mountains and dinner at sun set, just the perfect day. The garden is amazing, there are dozens of different kind of fruits and flowers, hummingbirds, frogs... at night it sounds almost like in the jungle. Just an incredible place!
Hostel is a distance from the beach but I didn't mind walking; it felt unsafe at night however. No towels are provided and the water is cold, the toilet doesn't flush very well. No microwave, and the kitchen area is very small. There was a cockroach in the room which was really small. The guy on security is half asleep at all times, but seemed nice enough. Mosquito repellent is a must because of all the trees. Wouldn't stay again unless really desperate! Sue wasn't there when I arrived :(
Sue and the crew were lovely, they help out with all your needs and have a lot of local knowledge to pass on. At first thought you may think the Judy house is not in the ideal location of Negril, but it is perfectly situated halfway between the beach and the west end. I had a lot of fun.

What a nice and relax place to stay ! Sue, the owner, know a lot of good spot around, she has some good advices, I highly recommand her ghesthouse,
The hostel is located up a hill which most taxi drivers will charge you more to drive up there. A little bit of a pain but not a huge problem, the kitchen facilities are minimal and basic. The rooms are clean but small, they all have a safe in them to keep valuables which was handy. The staff super friendly, just make sure you ask the price for meals etc before you decide on anything as they will charge more for meals than some of the local restaurants close by! An amazing stay here regardless
Everything was fantastic! Had a great time there, it was pretty quiet when I was there but that was due to the low season.
This travel vacation experience was unlike any other; my first stay at a hostel; Sue and the staff have put much love and effort into making The Judy House a tropical retreat; I loved the constant flow of new travelers coming and going and meeting new people from all over the world; not to forget Browning and kitty; Beautiful surroundings, peaceful, affordable and all that I needed. I felt very safe and cared for, miss it there already. Thank you Sue, Martell and Hyacinth. One Love, Blessings
