    Love this place. The staff are SO nice. The two ladies that work at reception are super nice and super helpful and even gave me somewhere to get my hair done before a wedding, changed our room super quick when we had a little issue with it. Rooms are cool and location is awesome. also it would be a crime not to have a fresh juice or food from the vegan cafe on the rooftop it was delish!!

    Wir hatten zwar nur zwei Tage im Reggae Hostel, aber wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen. Es war 24/7 jemand ansprechbar und alle hatten ein offenes Ohr für Fragen und Empfehlungen. Sowohl Strand als auch die Innenstadt sind fußläufig in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Einkaufen und Essen gehen kann man schon wenige Meter entfernt.

    Great location right next to the beach! Very helpful staff. Amazing chef on rooftop bar. Air con was excellent! The only drawback was the next door bar played loud music every night until 4AM.

    A place that attracts nice people, staff was very helpful, cleanliness issues are mostly bc of the residents - leave the areas as you want to find them!!

    Really great location for a hostel in Ocho! Staff were super helpful but unfortunately not much of a backpacker atmosphere and no air con in our room meant a sweaty nights sleep!

    Decent hostel for sleeping and meeting people. Rooms were not clean and not in good shape (dirt all over the bathroom floor, broken lockers, etc), although having a full size bunk was nice. AC only available 9pm-9am, and no hot water for showering. Staff were nice and helpful, but the nightclub/party that the hostel brought us to two nights in a row was not as promised by staff - no one was dancing and we were told there was no cover only to show up and have to pay a non-trivial entry fee.

    I really wanted to love this hostel, it is in the perfect location and the staff are really friendly. But it just really didn't feel like a hostel. There is no atmosphere, no events are arranged and they don't clean your private room until the 4th day. Without AC the sheets were sweaty and the rooms covered in sand. It got to the 4th day and no one cleaned the room. I had to tell them to clean it and all they did was change the towels and sweep. No change on the sheets. Would not stay here again
