This place is really relaxed and chilled out. All the usual hostel facilities come as standard but the people are what make your stay enjoyable. Chatting, drinking, bike rides, swimming and sunbathing are how you'll spend most of your time here!

The Palace Hostel was a wonderful place. When I first flew in on my a st minute vacation, I had steeled myself for anything, having traveled and stayed in hostels before Thankfully, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The staff on duty, Josiah, was very kind and courteous, during check in (and during the rest of stay), and the room... More

I came to The Palace Hostel with a reservation for 1 night, but ended up staying in 2 month. It is a fantastic hostel in walking distance to Condado, 3 different beaches and 5 min. from the busstop to Old San Juan. There is good indoor and outdoor facilities, which makes it possible to always hang out with other travellers... More

The Hostel had a great atmosphere and there were a lot of people from all over to hang out with. It was clean and well taken care of and easy to get to restaurants and bars and such. The staff were friendly and very helpful as well. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

They've great balcony and outside spaces. The only thing is the room and common area at first floor are a bit dark and not super clean, but I... More

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights. The staffs in the hostel are very cool, helpful and friendly. They will try their best to help you even you show up without booking and they are full. The rooms and common areas are very clean. It's located in the middle of everything, shops, restaurants, supermarkets, cinemas are within couples of... More

I've stayed at many hostels in the US, South/Central America, and Europe. I enjoy shared living environments and appreciate the value they offer. I would say that, in terms of my travel profile, I'm somewhere beyond "shoestring hobo traveler" but I'm hardly Hilton material. I found the Palace Hostel disappointing. I'll list a few of the many reasons why: The... More
