    What a nice place to stay! In town, close to grocery stores and restaurants. The local bus station is 5 minutes away and the knutsford express 10 minutes. Vanessa is charming, friendly and very knowledgeable of her town. Well stay there again.

    Definitely stay here when visiting MoBay. This was the nicest hostel I'd ever stayed at. The bathrooms were very clean and spacious with a really great shower. The house itself is a beautiful colonial mansion. The courtyard is super chill and comfy.

    Perfect place to stay while in Montego Bay! The facilities are beautiful and clean with gorgeous huge windows, the staff is extremely friendly and you feel safe around them and the property. The dog is harmless - so nice and cute (a little slobbery)!! :) Everything you need within walking distance including groceries, restaurants, shopping, beaches,etc. No hidden fees. Staying at this hostel and exploring the area will allow you to gain an authentic Jamaican experience. 110% recommend.

    Liked the location was right downtown, so lots of restaurants nearby. Not in the tourist area, so get a feel of the real city. The owners cousin was running the facility while she was gone and she was excellent! Her family lives right across the hostel and they were all very nice and helpful as well. There's no air conditioning and fans are in the room that you can feel if your in certain top bunks. Loved they provided free filtered water. Doctors cove beach about a 30 min walk.

    A Beautiful 350 year old Historic House !!!! The Staff is Great...very Friendly and helpful in many ways. The only down points for me was the closeness to the Busy center of town...and my upstairs room was very warm, which made sleep for me difficult. But overall I rate this Guest House Very high !!! ✌️🙂🇺🇸

    Domenic and his family are super friendly and it’s great to spend time with them when you’re done exploring for the day. Hostel is located right in the middle of the action which is fun. I’d recommend vibing up the common area a bit with a speaker, music goes a long way at a hostel! Also would be helpful to get more insights and recommendations of what to do/where to go in Mobay, organized events etc. All in all great spot

    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.

    Staff here were friendly and it was a great building and super clean. The only thing is that we still saw cockroaches, a mouse and my friend had ants in her bed. I know they kept the place super clean so I'm not sure what else can be done to stop them but maybe a stricter rule on letting people in the rooms with food? Other than that we had a great experience here and would stay again.
