This was my first time staying in a hostel and my second time travelling alone. I must say this hostel surpassed my expectations BY FAR! It took a while to find the place in the dark, and there was a bit of mix up with my reservation (not the fault of the hostel) but I was quickly accomodated. I got settled in quickly and Zana showed me around and told me where everything was. The hostel was very homely and comfortable and I immediately felt like I was at home. That night I was a bit cold and the sheet I had wasn't quite enough to keep me warm so I just threw on a sweater. The next morning there was coffee, toast and cereal which was enough to hold me down for a few hours. Half way tree is a very close distance to walk and it was very safe (especially when walking with others). It is not recommended to walk alone at night and don't carry too much money on you. Many restaurants nearby and cabs were always available. The washrooms, kitchen, and common area were very clean. I met a lot of interesting and cool people on my trip. Scotty, Zana, and Ramone made my stay very enjoyable and comfortable and there was a sense of belonging. I did not want to leave!! Lots to do, and if you want to do nothing, (which was what I did) it was very comfortable sit around idle and listen to music. Having WIFI was a major bonus as I was able to keep in touch with my family and friends back home who were worrying about me! All in all, I had an amazing time, met some wonderful people, and definitely plan on going back soon! Thank you Reggae Hostel!
