“Horrible and disgusting place!!Do Not Stay Here!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

I went on a holiday with my sister and wanted to book some affordable accommodation as we both are students. It was a huge mistake to book this place!! When we arrived we were greeted by this young girl at the reception, who was more than bored and not a word of english!! somehow we managed to explain that we have a room booked here and eventually got the keys. When we opened the door(well, we nearly didn't have to use the key as the door was hanging anyway!!) it was nightmare! The sheets were dirty and the room was stinking of cigarettes and whatnot... I went to complain but the girl couldn't(or wouldn't) understand. so we stayed..The bathroom was so old that every time we flushed there was stream of toilet water coming from the bottom of the toilet seat!!!and every morning the toilet over flooded!! They never changed our sheets or towels during the week we spend there. And on the last day the cleaner broke my sisters souvenir cup,it wasn't expensive but we didn't have time to go and buy new one as she broke it while we were having breakfast and we then had to leave. I was furious at this point and went downstairs to this receptionist and cleaning lady(yes she was doing everything there)! All we got for response was hand gesture which showed that she didn't care and laugh. At that point my sister pulled me away and we left the place.
Only good thing about that was that now we can laugh how horrible it was and in a future we make sure that we change the place if its not good!(at that time we were still quite young, not too much older now but i know now better)

Friendly hostel. Microwave and fridge for common use. Most advantage is that it is no more 100 meter to the sea, which is also seen from windows of some room in a hostel. The bigest problem was with temparature. In the night it was very cold in room and we dont get any blanket. Staff was helpful. Give us information what we should sea and have We can get there. It was surprise, couse reception guy remamber my friends which was at the same hostel 3 months before me ! worth to Recomend

I have mixed feelings about this one. The place is very cheap, but has some disadventages... The floor in the rooms is made from marble, or other stone. I was there during the winter, and it was, to be honest - rather cold because of this. In addition, there were no wall heater, just an electric one (not really efficient). Possibly in the summer it's much more comfortable. The rooms are big, and the beds were comfy. Staff was ok. The location is also ok... It's not in Palma in fact, but in S'Arenal (kind of a suburb) - it's a short ride from Palma de Mallorca. Hotel has very good connection with the airport.
