    Zach is the Man. The owner went out of his way to provide everything I needed before I knew I needed it. Great location. Had a live on property staff 24 hours. The location was great @ Manor Park (w/ food, bistro's, groceries, & warm neighborhood.) With the 2 greatest attributes were the location (near taxis & buses) and the Vibe of the property was so amazing & relaxed. Clean, friendly, & comfortable. If your in Kingston, and your a backpacker (retired, student, or group) you have to stay here.

    The hostel is a bit outside of the city but the bus stops right in front of the hostel (100 dollars from downtown, which is like 0.85 USD). There are a lot of stores and restaurants nearby. The place has a nice garden, hammock, bar with drinks and snacks. Lockers are free of charge. Room and restroom is clean, well maintained, no broken stuff. WiFi works fine and fast. Staff is really cool and friendly. Would be nice to have a small kitchen or at least some cups, plates and cutlery.

    Great location, close to supermarkets, restaurants and Halfway tree station, so its easy to get to and from the airport and other atractions by public transport, bedrooms and beds are clean and comfortable, the garden and common are nice to relax and take a drink. The owner is kind and helpful, but there's at night, and the front gate remains opened.

    Very Good

    Good value overall but the manager runs another business and was often not available to maintain the property. Guests have access to the kitchen but only when the manager is on site. Dorms have fans and way too many beds to be confortable. Spacious lawn area and eating area. It's a quiet area and I slept well. Despite his long absences, the manager is very friendly and helpful. Supermarkets and public transport nearby.

    I didn't actually get the chance to stay here because of a situation that popped up but the staff was so helpful about canceling and so understanding. I can only imagine how good they must have been had I actually been able to fully stay there

    The staff was not really available so we could go to them with the issues. For two nights, there was no running water and we could hardly brush our teeth. I understand that there was a drought in Kingston but the staff didnt try to accomodate us. Also, the common areas could be more confortable considering its where people hang out every evening (as its not safe to walk around at night). And the kitchen was not available. Sorry to say I wont go back there.
