    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 :)

    Beautiful guest house set in beautiful grounds. The rooms are clean, quirky and cool and have everything you need power point, mosquito net and fan. Kitchen is handy if you feel to cook and at the lookout point guests often sit and chat the evenings away. I met some great people on my stay at Judy House, staff and owner included. As a lone female traveller I highly recommend Judy House it is safe and welcoming

    Judy’s Place is really nice, a bit of Shangri La slightly off the beaten path of the Negril oasis. Here you can kickback, take an outdoor (or hot indoor) shower and then tug on a beer or G&T with friends and feel at home. And you’ll meet a lot of them, from the staff to the guests. When I was up for it, I’d have 1-2 girls one-third my age to go out with at night or to the beach.

    I loved this place for a few reasons. As a lone traveller I met many great people here. It has beautiful surroundings and a lovely dog. It’s a bit far from the beach if that bothers you but it’s possible to get a taxi

    Judy House was exactly what my friend and I needed for an easy hostel in Negril. We felt safe and were within walking distance of many great spots. We were told Negril is not very safe, but we felt fine in this location. Route taxis are needed to get to most tourist spots. Bring your own towel.

    I was pleased with my stay. Staff was kind and atmosphere of garden was peaceful and pretty. Room were very clean yet small. However, I agree that there should have been a better price( cost was too high for the value & atmosphere) and there was no staff to clean bathroom after shower which should have been included in price as well as food service, free continental breakfast. Security was excellent. I loved the pet dog. He was the most loving staff of all and beautiful eyes and spirit.

    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.
