Tillett Gardens features a restaurant, salon, theater, glass art, pottery, leather shop, beads and jewelry, drum museum, a medium, bakery, accounting office, chiropractor, music lessons, candle maker, vintage shop, and a beagle that hunts iguanas, to name a few.

    Had a really great time, and meet some interesting and like minded travelers. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes hostels and wants to see St Thomas without breaking the bank.

    What a place! Rhoda's/Tillett Gardens is a unique and totally cool place to stay in the USVI! When I arrived, the manager spotted me (she emailed me to make sure I had landed safely) and got me set up with my space quickly. I felt at home right away, and met really nice girls I was able to befriend and hang out with for days. Was able to get around the island for a dollar or 2 using the safari buses. day-tripped to St. John easily, and would highly recommend. Cant wait to go back someday!

    Staff was very absent, but there was a helpful guide book. Location is tricky on this island b/c everything is sprawled. Really loved the art community though and nice kitchen/common room. I saw other travelers cleaning this place more than actual staff. I think it's a little pricey for what's really given, perhaps they tack advantage of being the only hostel on the island.

    Men's bunkrooms has only one door.....entry/exit/fire escape in a concrete block room! Overall vibe was: getting noisily ready until 9:00pm for another night of barhopping, then sleep all day. Clean enough though. Laurie was very helpful and cheerful! Did NOT want to give out my credit card info to the "new" staff as they seemed out of the loop of info.

    This is place itself is not bad if you are on a budget. The only main complaint I have is that they did not clean the bathroom or kitchen during our whole stay, not acceptable.

    The owner is friendly but was pretty much absent throughout my stay.The room I got was unprepared and dirty(trash on the floor and dirty,unwashed sheets)as if it hadn''t been cleaned or inspected before I arrived..and the room just smelled awful.I understand that they're trying to rebuild from the aftermaths of the hurricane but thats no excuse for the room to be unprepared before arrival.I should've spent more money&stayed at a hotel instead of this hostel for a better experience in the island.

    I cancelled my stay at Rhoda's guest house but did not get a refund of my deposit. I requested online and spoke with Rhoda's guest house over the phone but have not seen the refund to my credit card yet. Please check that out.
