I stayed in Palm Tree last month. This hostel is a quiet hostel located in a nice clean area. Close to supermarket, restaurants, and metro. The staff are very polite and attentive. the rooms are very comfortable though basic.

Room was a good size and clean. Location to restaurants and metro station ideal. Only downside was the room at the front was noisy from early morning street traffic. The staff were awesome ... helpful, friendly, informative and there was someone on the front desk 24 hours. Would stay there again.
