    Absolutely loved staying here. It felt like a home away from home. We felt very safe and well taken care of! Loved the honesty station at the front, and the beautiful garden that surrounded the cabins. Rooms and washrooms were clean, and there were many spaces to sit and relax among the grounds. 10/10 would stay again. Thank you Sue!!!

    Great place, exactly what you'd expect/look for in a hostel in a place like Jamaica. Nice staff, beautiful location surrounded by nature, just down the road from the beach. Honesty bar with drinks, food stuff and knick knacks you might need during your stay at reasonable prices and the rooms have a nice touch. No complaints whatsoever :)

    I was supposed to stay at Judy's house for a week and ended up extending for two weeks because of how amazing it was. You won't find a friendlier staff elsewhere (thank you Sanique, Martel, Elissa and Frankie!!). The place is great, you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle with plenty of hammocks and common areas to hang out. Many cool solo travellers drop by which makes it the perfect place to meet new people. Will definitely be back!!

    Great location to access the Cliff side and beaches of Negril. Staff where extremely friendly and Montel went out of his way to share stories, show us and let us try several Jamaican edible plants/nuts/fruits and get us to where we needed to go. Location is on a quiet street we walked often to get to Canoe Beach and Restaurant which has good food.

    The hostel is like being a jungle and all the dorms are individual which is perfect for privacy! However, it is a bit far from town and local taxis charge a hefty extra fee to go up the mountain. The staff is lovely and, while being far, you have everything you need in the hostel.

    The house is stunning and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. We liked the security and loved waking up to the sound of nature as the sun rose through the trees and flowers. Slightly let down when we found it's very near to a loud local bar that kept us up at night and also the shower wasn't great - cold and low pressure. The location is pretty good - a safe neighbourhood, not too far from both Beach and Cliffs. Overall we loved it but in future we'd probably stay a little closer to the beach

    It's a nice enough place, a bit pricy for what it is and at the top of a hill kind of outside the city center. The facilities are nice, but the staff on site always seem to be a bit grumpy about something, lol.
