Palace hostel had open commons areas making it very easy time meeting new people to explore the island with. Price was low and the location was fine for walking to where I needed to go on foot, including to the old town or beach. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Trip was February 2014.

It was a hostel, the ambiance and staff were nice. The amenities are basic, but you have what you need. In a city location, not the safest, but I felt fine staying there. What makes the hostel the best, are the people you meet.

shared room, but clean, the only thing the air conditioning was noisy. Large bathrooms and almost always available. Very central to walk to old san juan Easy parking if car has, but the neighborhood left something to be desired.

Fair rate. Street parking is very limited. Near park that is rather shady. You get what you pay for. Staff are friendly and helpful with directions and ideas for trips, though. I'd stay here again next time.

I've stayed in a lot of hostels in Europe and Puerto Rico and this may be the worst hostel I've ever been in. Hopefully the staff is not the same as as mid 2015. Far from airport in a very sketchy area. Pay a little more and stay somewhere else.

Rain came through the ceiling and soaked all my stuff, I had to argue to get a free wash and dry, they wanted to charge me $5 and my stuff reeked of mildew. then on the last day I needed an emergency bed and Diego charged $40 to my card and I didn't find out until I was back home.... More

I stayed there in April 2012 and it's one of the best hostels to visit. It's hidden on a very nondescript block and that's part of it's charm; at least it was to me. I never felt in danger, my belongings were safe and the staff was fantastic.

Great location and rooms were clean. Came for a quick stay with a friend and had a great time here. We did not spend a lot of time in the hostel, however employees were very nice and helpful. Would stay here again.
