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

Had my best experience and memory of PR at the hostel. Super friendly and crazy staff, had dinner with them, went out with the guys and we ended up chilling at the beach and swimming at night in the sea of San Juan. The hostel is very clean and well located. Value for money. Good vibes! Keep up the good... More

The Palace Hostel staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the surrounding areas as well as the entirety of the island. The hostel is a place where one could show up with very little idea of an itinerary, and find the destinations that they are hoping to discover with assistance from Matt, Victor, and the rest of the staff.

I spent 4 nights at the Hostel and it was just great. All the guys working at the hostel are awesome dudes. I was first given a room where the air-conditioning was not working properly. The staff quickly moved me to another room and everything was great. Wifi also worked at every area in the hotel, and it was very... More

The Palace Hostel as recently gotten really impressive due to the current staff of intelligent handsome men. Not only did Matt, Josh, Victor and <3 Byron <3 (a hot nurse with a MUN) cater to our every need, but they kept the house sparkling clean in the process. We loved waking up in the morning to shirtless guys scrubbing the... More

We only spent one night here but I wish we could have stayed longer, our experience was that good. Wonderful staff, all the amenities we needed, and just fun times. After we had already checked out, they let us keep our bags there in the staff area while we wandered around the city waiting on our flight. Everyone working there... More

It's like a big family here. Everyone is very helpful, nice, and social. I recommend anyone to stay here if in the area. It's a laid back place where you can be yourself around anyone here. The vibes are great and there is plenty to do in the area. Beaches near also a down town area with plenty of bars... More

The sad thing is, is that this could be and I believe has been a really great hostel. However the first thing I noticed when I walked in was the smell of mold and mildew emanating from the bathroom in the main lobby. The whole room was covered in it, as was the shower curtain. Not going to get into... More
