    Great stay, very helpful staff. They even helped me get a ticket to Reggae Sumfest! They also arranged my taxi to Knutsford Bus.

    The best part about Reggae Hostel is the staff and the people it attracts. It's conviently located near Half Way Tree. The accomodations aren't fancy but it's cheap and a great place to meet people. The staff is incredibly warm and helpful. I will definitely be coming back when I'm in Kingston next (though I might splurge and book the Culture Room, which is a single room with its own bathroom).

    Location seemed a bit sketchy, but I had no issues walking alone at any hour. A/C in my room was solid, backyard is a nice spot to chill. Main issue was no running water at times, so I could not shower.

    Nice place, friendly staff. Cool chill-out area in the back to meet people. Only suggestion is they have key access to the rooms for any extra layer of security.

    This is my second time staying at this hostel, like it was two years ago when I first visited, it is still my favourite spot to hang out in Kingston. You will certainly meet some interesting people, explore the city, and have a fun time here. Highly recommend.

    Despite being a part of the Reggae brand, you get a much different experience as compared to the one in Ocho. Free breakfast is great but they never had coffee (which is ok to run out! But after 3 days of just not getting some? Also the on-site bar was barely stocked too. I don’t understand that mentality it’s lost revenue for the hostel!) staff is super friendly but mostly kept to themselves. The location is pretty good too, not far from the main sights. Solid but not amazing.

    Definitely does not live up to the hype. In a really rough area. Girl on reception was beyond useless and made the signing in process to be extremely tedious with her bad attitude. Lockers in room is good but have to have them when the room can’t be locked. Nice big backyard.
