We had a room here for 10 days. It was surprising that they had so many stairs. And to get to our room a lot, lot stairs. The room is ok, place to sleep in and shower to wash on. Mattress was really bad to our backs. It needs another mattress so the spring from the mattress doesn't feel on... More

Very good hostal for good value, it is clean and very good situated. There is a swimming pool and some options of breakfast... Just wifi is on the reception. It is enough for a couple of nights. A little bit bad acces if you have very heavy luggages. There are a lot of stairs.

This hostel was located 500m from Cala Major. The beach was pretty busy but was clean has a little wave to body surf and was relatively clean. We stayed in a private room which has it's own bathroom but the bathroom was relatively small and hard to move around. Wifi only worked in the common room but also did work... More

Hostal San Telmo is a nice place in a good location, with swimming pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beach, bars and restaurants are just a very short walk away. I noticed a previous guest complaining about the dogs. The dogs are lovely, friendly labradors, and no they don't smell. Having them around gives the place more of a feel... More

We were literally kicked off, intimidated, bullied and ridiculed just because of our complaints. Hostal San Telmo is not, I repeat NOT a place to stay. I didn't have this kind of terrible experience in any of the hostels or hotels I stayed. I read the review of others that they say its a clean place. not at all!!! place... More

Stayed here alone in April, not the best time to visit Mallorca anyway but the hostel didn't make it any easier. The common room was shabby and not very inviting so no one was ever in there which made it extremely hard to get chatting to other guests. There are 2 dogs roaming around which made the reception and common... More

It's a nice place to stay an begin visit Palma, from there you can take any bus to visit the beaches. The owners are kind and can help you to organize your trip. Clean rooms but without air conditioning, nice swimming pool, definitely a small and simple place to sleep, don't look at it as a classic hotel, it's not.... More

The room we stayed in didn't have anything to do with the pictures you see when making a reservation - small, dark, old, smelly, small bed with a terrible old mattress, noisy - we could hear the neighbors and everything what was happening close to the pool. No fan, no bed lights for reading, to use the safe box you... More

All the previous reviewers were right : when you go to Hostal San Telmo, don't expect luxury, but basic rooms with basic facilities. It's just a place to sleep during the night and spend the day elsewhere, on the beach etc. Yes, it's true it smells the dogs, but not so much- it remains acceptable and the dogs are nice.... More
