    I’ve been hosteling for over 25 years and this was by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Parking was convenient within a block or two. The staff was friendly. Guests were quiet at night. Kitchen and bathrooms were extremely clean. Also the private room was an amazing deal. My only complaint would be that there’s only 3 toilets. So… there’s often a line at prime times. Waking up early helped solve that. I’ll be back again for sure!

    Like many others are saying, the staff is super cool and the vibe from everyone is very friendly. They are under new ownership and are upgrading some rooms and revamping the place in general. They have event most nights of the week that repeat weekly and are constantly adding more as they hire more staff. They’re also getting another van for more trips around the island! Location is the only downside, in that it is far enough away from many of the better places to visit but buses are cheap 🤙🏼

    My stay started a little rocky due to some miscommunication prior to my booking. All in all, Terrance took really good care of me, he made my stay 10x better! The atmosphere is very relaxed at the hostel. Staff are friendly and they even pick you up from the airport!

    Very Good

    this place was a great place if you just needed somewhere to sleep and that's it. Didn't really have anything too special about it. Staff was great and it was very clean. I just wish there were more lights outside the door or walking to the door at night. It was a little shady at night with limited light. I really liked the cool temps, had a good deal of air flow in the room.

    The first night there was a big commotion and no security was present. It was a little stressful. When we booked, there was a misrepresentation of dorms. We were under the impression that girl and boy dorms were separate but not so. It’s very much co-ed. The atmosphere was super friendly. They made us pancakes for breakfast, which was a nice way to start the day.

    Location is very centrally located if you have a car, though parking could be a challenge in the neighborhood. The front doors are locked with a security code. Make sure you ask if they change it because sometimes they change it while you're out during the day. Needs more bathrooms...there are only 3 bathrooms for 30 people. Also, I'm glad to see that they clean the dorms every day, but the single room I stayed in was a little dusty and the aircon filter needed a good cleaning.

    We booked a private room with shared bath at North Shore Hostel through the website. At checkin we were given a room that was smelling terrible and had no ventilation. And there was some construction going on in the room right opposite. We couldn’t stay in that room and decided to sleep in our car instead, as we were told that they had no other options for us. I wish we could get a refund for this. I wish the website has mandatory cleanliness standards for businesses before they advertise.
