I want to start off by saying this hostel is different than most. It’s all about family. The host Eddie is wonderful and makes you feel like you’re part of his family! The rooms are extremely clean and tidy. The grounds are well kept and the host was amazing. Fans and AC included, laundry on site, and has a cleaning service. Centrally located to downtown Nassau makes adventures pretty easy. You can’t beat how organically friendships form at HumesHouse at Hillcrest.

Amazing place !!! Really family like backpacker place ! You feel at home as soon as you arrives ! Everyone is so friendly ! Beds are comfy ! Even if it’s has only a “complimentary” breakfast it’s more then enough ! Guests are all so cool, as chill as Ed the manager !

I stayed for two nights. And I absolutely loved it. Cheapest hostel in Nassau, with an extraordinary host Ed and his helping hand Tika. They welcome you like family and help you out with everything. There is always someone around. They help you out with very private things all the way to book the right tour. Beds are extremely comfy with ceiling fan and a/c if you want. They ask many times if we are comfortable with the temperature of the room or if we need anything. Very clean rooms, beds, bath and kitchen. No food allowed in the rooms, this brings you closer to the hostel family. All together on one big table. I loved it. We played cards, went shopping together and drunk as well. Ed the owner came often around in the evening with his girlfriend to play cards or to invite us to go to a local bar. To keep it simple: YOU ARE FAMILY HERE thank you for the wonderful time Jen

Do not go there The place is old and dirty no air conditioning breakfast is basic you cook yourself. Breakfast is usually toast or bagels once a week eggs. The rooms were extremely hot with dirty fan and you're in trouble if you turn on the fan, the beds have a plastic cover so you sweat. No screens on some windows and doors so you get bitten by mosquitoes. The bathtub is dirty sometimes people don't flush the toilet it's disgusting. The kitchen is very dirty and all dishes to cook with are old. The walk to downtown is about 25 minutes no sidewalks on Sears road and other streets not a very good area they call it the ghetto. They like to party loud musics till midnight or later.
