Cedar Ridge Lodge in Montego Bay is on a beautiful hillside overlooking the Bogue Islands and the turquoise blues of the Caribbean Sea.

It's in the heart of a cul de sac, with lots of trees, a green roof, and peach walls.

A little to the west of the City of Montego Bay and just fifteen minutes from the Sangster International Airport, it is just a short taxi ride away from the main city Transportation centre with connecting routes to all the major towns in Jamaica.


Their mission is to assist you to have the most enjoyable and memorable stay on the island of Jamaica, and to provide you with a clean, safe, secure, comfortable, entertaining, educational and affordable home environment while you are here.


The business belongs Greg McKenzie who studied abroad, travelled the world, and returned home to realize what a "gem" he had right here.

He wanted to create affordable alternative accommodaion for the more intrepid traveler who wished to experience Jamaica from the inside out.

So he turned his home into a HOSTEL.

Greg, with the help of his mother Arlene, provides a warm welcome for all visitors.

Visitors could easily be tempted to spend their whole vacation in this one wonderful place.


The Hostel, offers accommodation for individuals, couples, or groups of up to 18 people.

Meals can be pre-arranged and booked in advance if required, as there is a really great cook at the hostel.

Visitors are allowed to cook, and often enjoy sharing their favourite or national dishes with everyone else in the hostel.


There are also a selection and variety of great and affordable restaurants in close proximity.


The great thing about Cedar Ridge is the way visitors are made to feel at home, informed about where, how and what to do ... and plenty of really great tips on getting the best experiences from your visit.


Greg says:

"Cedar Ridge usually has some great parties when the house is full.
Look out for our rocking, mountainside cul de sac, and cool vibes events ... from moonlight parties to pot luck jerk and beer nights and to offsite pub crawls.
Don?t just sit there make the fun, chill, lyme, hang ... just live life ... enjoy Jamaica."


It is advisable to make your bookings early, as beds are not always available.

It is also reccommended that you have our hostel driver collect you from, and take you back to the airport, as this works out much cheaper.

All other trips can be handled by local drivers.
