A good part of town and the property is safe. There is a safe place to park and the restaurant is a good place to get something to eat later in the day. The room were good and lockable
There was some sort of water access issue in that part of town during our stay . The water for showers was available about half of the time. Bucket showers were needed when the water was not available. To be fair , this was a city issue ... The property did not have any control of this water supply and pressure issue ... I think this was a temporary situation and would be remedied after water main work was done
Zach the owner of the property is very friendly and a nice person. One day he took me to like cay and he did not charge anything for travel.
Modern style hostel. Remote control fans. Space and Garden. Close to the malls of Manor Park.
No staff. No vibe. No cooking facilities (as the staff weren't there to unlock and siwtch on facilities) No water for a whole day. I suppose they cant be blamed if there there was a water shortage on the island. But..
The owner, Zach (sorry if I spelled that wrong), was friendly and helpful. The room and bathrooms were clean. The owner was great with directions. It was my first time in Kingston by myself and he was good about advising me where to find transportation for where I needed to go.
Water kept shutting off but that's understandable as there seemed to be some infrastructure work going on in the area. It happens often enough where I live in Montego Bay so I'm used to it.
The garden is beautiful, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and there’s hot water as well. Zac was very helpful and it was no problem to even check in late. Met so many nice people there and had a great time
Main road to the city was under construction so had to take a taxi not to get stuck in traffic all day long with the Bus
