I stayed here for 2 nights just recently. I felt extremely safe when I was here. They have a well-equipped kitchen and lots of tours on offer. Both the receptionists were really helpful and entertained all of my questions with a smile in their face. They also have a lovely dog named Maya that you can pet. The only gripe I had was that the hot shower didn't work, but all is good. Would've stayed more days, but I had to leave Tegucigalpa due to the protests and rallies in the city.

Well-located hotel in a safe neighbourhood of Tegucigalpa. They have two different buildings close to each other, but both are fine, including kitchen and fridge. The TV room is also great for watching football or Netflix. The rooms are really nice and some of them have a great view of the city and the hills surrounding it. The only downside seams to be the female receptionist who doesn't really show great hospitality and is not very friendly. This is contrasted by the owner who is great and very welcoming.

Hotels in Tegucigalpa are relatively expensive and hostels are limited. I booked a one-night stay in a standard double bed private room at Palmira Hostel Tegucigalpa based on the hostel’s good reviews. Centrally located, the hostel is close to all of the city’s main attractions. From the time of booking, I received nothing but excellent customer service from the hostel’s owner, Hernan. Before I could even reach out and inquire about the property's airport transportation and free walking tour, Hernan emailed me about my arrival information and provided information about the tour. Upon arrival, I was privileged to have Hernan himself as my guide for the tour. He was super friendly and informative—and, most importantly, he went out of his way to make sure I was satisfied. The property itself was great. The room was very large and clean. The bed and room temperature were comfortable. The views from the rooftop terrace (and the rooftop terrace itself) were wonderful—especially during sunset. Overall, great experience. Would recommend.

After 4 months in Central America, this hostel proved to be one of the best that I've been to. The kitchen is well equipped and clean, making it a pleasant experience to cook while traveling. There is a lovely garden with patios and tables to sit under the shade of the trees. The rooftop might be the highlight, you have a wonderful view over Tegucigalpa, including the Picacho statue. Overall, the hostel offers you many facilities (including tours, both paid and free), just be sure to ask about them and make the best of your stay! Enjoy!

I am a seasoned world traveler. During the past thirty years I have circumvented the globe a couple dozen times. I have been to metropolis and off the beaten path villages, the night life in Prague and the sleepy heat drenched noon where sheep gather near the pond in Ithaca. I can attest without a shadow of a doubt that Palmira Hostel, ranks among the highest levels of quality hospitality I have ever encountered. Bar none. Palmira Hostel is located in Colonia Palmira, one of the safest neighborhoods in Tegucigalpa. Just a couple of blocks from the US embassy, you can find a variety of restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets and bars within walking distance. It is safe to walk in this area of town. Day or night. You have freshly brewed coffee right across the street, opening around six in the morning and closing around midnight. The hostel itself is a multi level three story building with a large rooftop terrace, furnished with lounge sofas, chairs and tables, a bar and a barbeque grill. All open to the guest. Hostel Palmira has a large dormitory with sixteen or so bunk beds and two common bathrooms, where travelers and backpackers from the world over continuously come in and out. For around eight US Dollars a day, you can always find a clean bed and a warm welcoming smile. The hostel also offers private rooms with private bathrooms for about thirty US Dollars a day. Whether in the dorm or in a private room, you will find your bedding changed daily or upon request, and a friendly staff who keeps the place immaculately clean. For about the same price you would pay for a Motel 6 in Miami, you have the luxury of a terrace, a garden, two barbeque stations and… A FULLY STOCKED KITCHEN. Yes my friend. Palmira Hostel has one of the best equipped kitchens I have ever seen in a hostel, hotel, apart-hotel or residence lodge. A fully stocked spice pantry with everything from local cumin to imported curry powder, cutlery, china and plenty of pots and pans to please the most discriminating cook. Including a wok and a Chinese hot pot I bought locally and donated to the kitchen during my three month stay. Palmira Hostel’s hospitality cicerone is Maya, a young and feisty white Labrador. She will make sure you feel right at home, and try to bribe you into giving her some of your deliciously cooked meal with heartful tail wags and licks. Keep in mind that Hostel policies request you do not feed her human food. Good luck resisting the charm of those drooly eyes! My gratitude is extended to the management and staff of Palmira Hostel who went out of their way to make me feel right at home with their warmth and friendliness. It went way above and beyond normal hospitality standards. To Hernan Segurado, the owner, who will cook for you upon request. It is a very good idea to have him do this since he is an excellent cook. In fact I insist in telling him he should open a restaurant. to Gaby, Aroni, Marta, Isis, Lucy, Henrique and Fonseca, go my friendship and thankfulness. To Gaby for her patience and understanding. I know I am a difficult guest at times. To Aroni for letting me bend the rules now and then, to Henrique for his generosity. To Fonseca for teaching me the colorful side of “Honduran” Spanish Todo cheque bo! To Marta for her warmth, to Isis for her disposition and to Lucy for her charm. Whenever I am in town, I know where the place for me is. From the many choices for lodging in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, there is no other place I would rather stay or recommend than Palmira Hostel. BELIEVE ME you will not be disappointed.
