We had an amazing stay at Germaican hostel and even extended our stay. The view is beautiful, the breakfast delicious with fresh fruits and you can buy drinks like beer and coke for small money. The hostel is not directly in the center of Port Antonio but you can get there easy and cheap by local drivers. The area of Port Antonio has a lot to offer like waterfalls, the blue mountains and beaches. Thanks a lot Marian and Anna for being perfect hosts and showing us Jamaicas beautiful local spots!

It is a nice hostel with great hosts! The house is clean and the rooms are nice. They have a nice porch with hammocks! Also very very good breakfast! The view is beautiful! The only minor downside is how to get there. We had a rental car and almost did not make it up the hill.. the road is basically not a road. But we made it!! Also cute dogs :)

Charming hostel, even including the difficult road to reach it - which literally crosses through a stream. Breakfast was delightful, though at extra cost, as was other food and drink items found in our room. We had hoped for cooler temperatures or breezes and birds all around, but found neither. The lack of air conditioning and no respite from the heat, humidity, or biting bugs (fully netted bed, but no screens) would keep us from staying again, despite the views. We may be spoiled, but we do prefer more comfort than we found here. We were quite ready to leave and would not book again.

Rooms were really big, bathroom was clean and the staff was really friendly, but the best thing from this hostel is its view from the top of a mountain to the whole city. Its also good to inform that the road to get there is a little bit bad and is a bit far from the city centre (you should have a car or take a taxi).

Nice hostel with a beautiful view but far away from everything, owner drives you up snd down a couple of times a day when there are enough guests. Beautiful kitchen with good equipment. Big rooms but really terrible mattresses, we got out of bed and the shape of our bodies (3 cm down) stayed in the matress for 30 minutes. Always very load music even though people are still sleeping or went to bed earlier then the rest. Breakfast is very yummy but not enough even though we were almost only girls. 5 dogs which can walk anywhere they want, they even walk into the rooms to take a nap. We stayed over a weekend and there was noone cleaning, so the bathroom got disgusting and the dog hair which was a lot was everywhere visible. Bring your own food. Only the owner is working there and is a bit lazy.
