“Good Location, Good Service, Okay Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The owners/managers of the hotel were very nice and helpful.

The location was okay. It was about a 15-20 minute walk down to the boardwalk, but a little bit of time is shaved off if you find a shortcut. Theres a very cheap grocery store very close by, and a couple of good restaurants on the way down to the boardwalk.

The rooms were very small, as was the bathroom.

The hotel was pretty expensive for what it was.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We stayed here for four nights to see Palma at the beginning of our mallorcan holiday. It's the perfect base to sight see.
First things first though: don't be brave thinking you'll find it with no bother. Yes, it's practically on a bus route , sooooo close, but get your bearings first and get a taxi from airport or city centre to the hostal. We got quite lost. Unless of course you have a good deal with your phone company and can drop a pin cheaply ;) one you see where it is in relation to everything else , including the tourist bus- dead easy!
Next, get the tourist bus, the stop is around the corner and it's good value , although nothing like as good as the bus in Barcelona or Valencia , it feels like the commenters is a bit lazy , lots of musical interludes....
The castle is closed on Monday's and no one tells you til you get there by the way.

Anyway back to the hostal; it is a hostel, not a hotel , dont expect luxury. The pool is adequate and clean. The coffee from the vending machine is sweet and strong . They don't do breakfast. The air conditioning is fast and quiet. The beds are very comfy. The shower is great- which will be a surprise as while it is clean, it looks rather pathetic.
They give you extra soap and a hair dryer when you ask. Your bed is made for you and your towels changed.
There is a tiny cafe ten meters away which is not glam but they do great simple food and great wine at ludicrously cheap prices- try it. Lovely staff too, good fun:)

All in all I happily recommend this place!

Just returned and enjoyed our stay at this budget hotel. Large room with Spanish TV, and clean ensuite, and balcony over looking pool. Good having fridge in room. In good location and 15 minute walking distance to Palma and bus at the end of the road. Staff friendly and helpful. Would defiantly return.

Stayed for a week just visiting friends. It was good as a quick stop of place. Abit noisy at might and the twin beds pushed together were very annoying although we requested a double. Staff were friendly, rooms cleaned everyday. Can't complain for the price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

We stayed here for one night in a small private room located in the front building. The check-in process was easy and the staff was really helpful and kind. The room was very simple, but included a refrigerator, TV and a decent shower. No Internet or wifi access. The beds were a little uncomfortable, but we weren't expecting luxury at this price. The room was quiet and clean and we got a good night's rest. There is a common area on the main floor with couches, a book exchange, and a flat screen television. The pool deck is spacious and the rooms in the back building had really nice outdoor spaces overlooking the pool. If I stay again I'll ask about the availability of these rooms, as they seem much nicer. The location of the hotel is very central- five minutes walk from the busy waterfront, but located far enough outside the tourist buzz. We found quite a few restaurants around the hostel that were decently priced and felt more like local establishments than tourist businesses. Great stay for the price.

On a short weekend break for a friend's wedding we decided upon Pinar principally because of it's central location and price.
It is a 15 minute walk into town and located right next to bus routes round to Illetas and Cala Mayor etc. There is also a handy taxi rank across the road.
The rooms were clean and basic. Air conditioned and with a bath/shower.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. They forgave our terrible Spanish and were keen to make sure that we were happy with our stay.
We didn't use the pool out back, but it looked very good and I can imagine it being good for a cooling dunk in the heat.
The main beach in Palma is along the seafront past the town centre and just over half an hour walk away, where I'm sure you can ride the bus around to the beach towns (and the superb Miro Museum and studios) in the other direction even quicker.
A great and cheap solution for beautiful Palma!

This little place is great for a quick getaway. Ideal for couples, single travellers or families with children. There is also a well kept pool for the summer months.

One of the main attractions in Mallorca, the Bellver Castle, is only 2 minutes away by car, and the Paseo Maritimo and the city centre are within walking distance (15-20 mins).

If you want a value for money hostal, with friendly staff and clean rooms... choose this place!
