    I had an unscrupulous Judy employee who was extremely rude to me. She kept bumb-rushing me to check out. By this I mean that she followed me around while repeatedly demanding are you going to check out. She was very impolite. Then lied to the owner who in-turn became extreemely rude to me and my guest. Upon returning to the compound on the last day of my stay the owner barked at me - with an unprofessional demeanor- demanding 'why are you still here?'

    Not sure what I expected from hostels in Jamaica. While Judy’s is super affordable, the facilities need upgrading. The staff were very friendly though.
