    Rooms and beds clean, Showers and bathrooms clean, No hot water but you don't need it really due to the heat. Laundry room , dry room, Lockers to store your stuff , laptops etc , ( You need your OWN padlock and Key). Towels , They do have a towel cupboard from towels left over from many guests so you could always ask to use. Very handy. Clean massive kitchen. Host will drop off and collect from Airport on request and for a fee anything from $10USD - $20USD be sure to ask. Great Location.

    Great staff, great vibe. The ceiling fan is good enough to keep the room cool. The staff is super chill and helpful with everything. I felt safe im the hostel. The location is in downtown Mobay which may not be for everybody, but a great way to be immersed, instead of being surrounded by tourists in the hip strip. Would not only stay again, but also recommend to others!

    Great hostel! Super clean, comfortable beds, really great place to meet people. My only complaint was that I was in one of the private rooms and there's an airway that connects it to a shared room, so there's basically no sound privacy. So if you're booking private, keep in mind that it might not feel so private. Other than that, great overall experience, and I would stay here again.

    the Host is very kind, chill, helpful and welcoming. The hostel is very clean and looked after. it is located right in the centre of Montego Bay. It's about a 20min walk to the tourist 'hip strip'. Be careful in the market streets near the hostel, because the locals can sometimes get very much in your personal space with not very good intentions. Specially if you're a woman, they will aggressively flirt. Overall, it was a really good experience and the hostel is worth visiting!

    No hot water for the showers so we only showered with cold water. Windows do not have netting so they are always open and mosquitos will fly into your room and bite you. If you leave the fan on, at almost maximum speed, this will ward off the mosquitos since they are not strong fliers. There was furry thick layers of dust on the window covers and on the headboard of bed. Overall, I wouldn't complain because the pricing is so low, but just FYI if any of these are dealbreakers for you
