Palenque Hostel
Ranked #85 of 201 Specialty Lodging in Cordoba
Reviewed April 23, 2009

We stayed in a private room here in Feb 2009 and came away fairly satisfied. Our room was in the centre of the building (i.e. not on the main road) so it was quite quiet, apart from a little noise from other guests (not late). The room was comfortable and clean and quite nicely furnished (for a change!). It had free internet and reception staff were quite helpful.
The problem with this place is that there are only 2 shower rooms - 1 is over a bath and 1 is just a shower - plus one extra toilet (so 3 in total for the whole place). If someone has a bath then that leaves just one for everyone and it´s a real problem. If a (dorming) couple decides to have some "private time" in the bathroom for 30 minutes, followed by an inconsiderate man taking 25 minutes to have a shower in there, whilst the other one is occupied by an inconsiderate woman for 45 minutes, that leaves the rest of us with nothing. GRR! Don´t stay here and count on getting a shower AND catching a bus!

Stayed in Palenque for one dreadful night at the beginning of january 2009. after staying there i made a belated new year's resolution to remind myself that sometimes it's worth splashing out a bit! (and not to place so much trust in lonely planet anymore!).

First the good points- friendly English speaking staff and nice atmosphere.

Bad points:
- hostel sleeps about 20 people.There are 2 showers available. That's right, one between 10. Despite staff's best efforts the facilities cannot be kept adequately clean and there are constant queues.

- the private rooms are considerably more expensive than the dorm rooms and yet they are situated in the worst position of the property- right next to the reception desk, on the main road. the noise is horrendous from very early in the morning (think 5.30am) until very late at night (think 5.29 am). that combined with scatchy itchy sheets make for a very uncomfortable night's sleep.

would not stay here again, nor would i recommend it to friend or even foe!
