For this price don't expect decent accommodation. Generally, the place looks very messy. Filthy fridge and kitchen. There is much to be desired about the bathrooms too. If you plan budget one night stay this place is ok and, of course, if you are between 18 and 45 years old.

Let's get a few things out of the way first: -This is NOT a hotel -Breakfast is basic (toast, peanut butter, jams, coffee, juices) -It's in a questionable, thought not necessarily unsafe, part of town (I remember walking to the store two blocks away past half-naked hookers on street corners and homeless people squatting to take a dump in the...

1. There was no way to reach our room from the main entrance without going through an open-air area and it was raining heavily 2. The number of electrical sockets was not sufficient enough for everyone to charge their phones. This is pretty weird, in this age of smartphones.

As well as the staff has no problem going the extra mile to make sure you are settling in well. If there is any problem, the manager... More

Really enjoyable stay in The Palace Hostel. Matt, Josh and Victor helped me in everything I need. Also, something is difficult to find antwhere you go, good vibes and sharing atmosphere. That's all you need if you go to a hostel in the spiritual way...

The Palace Hostel staff was super friendly and helpful. Right when we arrived one of the workers offered to show us to various restaurants/delis/liquor stores in the area. He provided clear directions to the closest beach (Condado) and gave several recommendations for things to do and places to see. We shared the double room with A/C- it was clean and... More
