Judy House Backpacker Hostel is located just a 10 minute walk from the sea up Westland Mountain Road in Negril, Jamaica. It’s a great location, set in a friendly local community which gives you a very special taste of real Jamaica.

The space

Nestling at the back of the stunning Judy House property are 5 simple but cozy rooms with 8 beds, designed specifically for backpackers - travellers with limited luggage that are often travelling the world, the Caribbean or just Jamaica. Rooms, Mango, Papaya, Banana are small single rooms outfitted with beds, standing fan, storage space, bed linens and dishware.

Singles $25US per night per person.

Local, friendly, no harassment, very pretty and overlooking the sea. Neighbours are wonderful. Close to all tourist and local amenities.

Yes cheap local route taxis, $130JMD per journey, you can even get to/Kingston for $10US.

I am always happy to help guests plan their stay and point them in the direction of the type of places they are looking for, but may not always find in the guidebooks.

Access the all property facilities, including 2 kitchens and 2 bathrooms, plus a tropical garden, hammocks, outdoor baths, dining areas, wifi.

I do not live on property anymore but and interact with guests whenever I can assisting them with advice on where to go, what to eat and organizing tours.

Westland Mountain Neighbour is local, friendly, helpful and sensitized to people wanting to stay in the 'real Jamaica' for years.

Within walking distance of lots of Negril or a cheap local taxi ride starting at $130JMD. Personal drivers are also available for tours and nights out.

I offer an experience of the 'real' Jamaica, away from the tourist zones, but close enough to access them when needed. I have a great knowledge of what is going on where and always happy to take time to share that with you.

Please read my reviews, I am always striving for 100% customer service.

Guest access

No curfew and guests have a key to get in and out of property. Everywhere accessible to hostel guests except for the cottages and double private room areas.

Includes access the all property facilities, including 2 kitchens and 2 bathrooms, plus a tropical garden, hammocks, outdoor shower, dining areas, wifi and my One 4 the Road Honesty Bar.

Interaction with guests

Our aim is to assist Judy House guests in having a very positive Jamaican experience from the moment we receive your booking. We can help you with an affordable airport shuttle, right to my gate, or assist you with information on other cheaper modes of transport.

We can arrange drivers and tours; give you information on places to go and things to do; we know the best places to eat, from breakfast to dinner or even late night snacks; best beaches and cliff experiences; beach parties and other evening entertainment.

Martel, our night security guard is also great chef available to cook for you with notice.

Me and all the Judy House staff are committed to making your stay in Jamaica the best we can. A guest book is available with our recommendations and tips, plus we are always happy to answer questions and I am willing to help you plan what to do, during your stay.

Other things to note

The Judy House is about experiencing the 'real' Jamaica. We provide 24 hour security with myself and Martel who are government trained and registered security guards.

Set in a very friendly, local, safe community only minutes from our local Mary's Bay Beach with the wonderful 'Canoe Beach Bar' on one side and Negril's only 'German Bar' on the other side. Most things are walkable from the Judy House, from cliffs to main beach. Not a walker? Easy to take a local, cheap, route taxi ride instead. Most supermarkets, banks, Cambios, restaurants are within walking distance too.

The 'One 4 the Road Honesty Bar' is provided for guests to purchase drinks and snacks 24 hours a day with a 'check the price', 'write what you take down' and 'pay later' honor system.

Sue was very accommodating and friendly. She gave me a ride into town on the first day and brought me to a nice beach. She is very knowledgeable about the area and people in the neighborhood spoke highly of her. The accommodations themselves were very simple/basic but are also very inexpensive. The neighbors along the street are also very nice. Many have small stores/bars, offering cheap fruit, snacks, and red stripe. There is a little church along the street as well that welcomed me and a few other travelers in and had some very beautiful singing during their service. It is a friendly neighborhood. There is a small beach very close by and the 7 mile beach can be reached by taxi or by a 25 minute walk. Sue has a small supply of beer, water, coffee and snacks that you can buy from her which was her convenient. You can simply write down what you are taking and then pay when it is convenient, which was very helpful for me. I ran up quite a tab until my last day there. Sue and her staff were also very helpful about arranging transportation for me to and from the airport.

Thanks for taking the time to review me Caroline. Hostel has communal charging area with 8 stations. The Judy House needs to keep prices down and internet speed up.
