    MoBay Kotch was beyond amazing. I felt like I was part of the family when I was there. Staff made the experience incredible. It was centrally located with everything nearby. They adhered to the COVID-19 restrictions and made everyone felt safe. I highly recommend it and would 100% stay again.

    My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and loved it! In downtown, so it was a little noisy through the windows at night however, the location is perfect to the experience Jamaican culture. Felt super safe with the locked gates and tranquil area around back for relaxing and chatting. Vanessa was awesome, as was her family!

    Mobay Kotch is a great hostel. Safe, clean and good facilities. It’s also very close to the Knutsford Station so you can actually just walk, even if with a check in bag. I really liked the building, it was pretty and made the stay all the more enjoyable. Definitely where I will always stay when I visit Mobay!

    Comfortable well run hostel. Very secure and close to supermarket and town centre. Good common areas for people of all ages to mingle easily. It is a bit more of a young peoples party hostel where a good nights sleep is not guaranteed. Average beds and cold showers.

    Way too expensive for what you get.the owner is super lovely and an amazing host. But, $22 for a dorm room here is too much. The room was very hot (even in Dec) the fans are not enough. Nothing on the windows to block the sun so the morning is even hotter. No outlet by the bed. Shower is only very cold. No WiFi in rooms. No credit card accepted at the time. Atmosphere is good to meet people but I wouldn’t stay here again.
