    Great location right on the beach, if it’s your first time the hostel is on the right from the stage. Great food next door. Live music almost every night. Can’t beat this place for the money in negril.

    Drifters was cool. Affordable. Stage on location and Wow! While I was there, I heard excellent performances by local roots reggae bands. They have significant talent over there! This was awesome. The WiFi password is not something easily acquired. I recommend you get that sorted ASAP. I spent a few days looking for someone who worked there and also knew the WiFi code... Haha. Helps to be laid back on that front. It is hard to know who to trust when you are traveling solo. You can trust B*da.

    I had a great time, the staff and people were real nice. Plenty of things to do right at the hostel. Entertainment, store, beach, food and relaxation. The conditions were not bad. I would definitely stay there again

    Place is great! Right next to the beach and the main road. The bar is right outside with live entertainment every now and then. Only downside is the internet bandwidth is short, and you can't get on during the day, only before and after the bar's business hours; also there's no hot water.

    great spot if you're travelling alone and want to meet people! exactly what you imagine a backpacker hostel to be- clean but not sanitary. limited kitchen but theres a convenience store with cheap beers and snacks right outside, coffee across the road, and a cook shop with 500JMD meals beside it. comfy beds, live music and lots of people around. Only thing is they seem disorganized w/ bookings - i was told there were no rooms despite having at least 1 empty bed per night in my room

    Very bad hostel. Everything is dirty and very badly arranged. Toilets and fans are broken. Wi-Fi not working. I have not received my $20 to return the keys.
