    Airport transfer was nice ($), cheaper than a taxi. Location is great, in the heart of MoBay right among tons of food options. Decently equipped kitchen. Clean rooms, comfy bed. Very friendly staff. Makes you feel like you’re a part of the real Jamaica. I’d recommend & stay again.

    I had a great time at Mobay Kotch. Vanessa is a great host and is knowledgeable about Montego Bay. The people who stayed the hostel were super cool. I miss it already!

    I had a great time! 2 things I was mildly worried about before staying here: 1) the dog and the cat are sweeties and I would have stolen the cat if I could smuggle her back to the US. (Yes, the dog barks, but shes lovely really) 2) the location is in an area with locals, food stalls, noise. Its brilliant, I am stupidly pale and blonde, I stick out, I have also never been anywhere like Jamaica and after one trip out with a male friend to show me around I felt totally safe walking around alone.

    I had a wonderful couple days at Mobay Kotch. I loved the location as it was right in the city centre of Montego Bay. The locals were super nice and willing to give my aunt and I a couple of history lessons about the centre. The owners are extremely nice and welcoming. I will definitely be back at Mobay Kotch in the near future!

    This is definitely the place to stay in Mobay. The location is right in the middle of town and the building itself is beautiful. The manager Vanesa is lovely and the rest of the staff are very fine too. Everything is very clean and the common area is swell. It was slow season so things were indeed a bit slow, but even still I met some nice people and had a fun time. Highly recommended,

    I just stayed for one night when the day I arrive at Montego Bay. The hostel is right in downtown, within walking distance of the hip stripe, restaurants, beaches; closes groceries stores. The room was clean and spacious, nice kitchen and bathrooms. I would definitelly come back to stay.
