Great atmosphere – the small size means it’s easy to meet people. Helpful staff. (USA – 1/22/2014)

 

Great hostel, best value you will find in San Juan I think. The people are great and the hostel is really nice. I have no complaints. The location isn’t great but could be much worse. The beach is walking distance and some nightlife too. The vibe here is good and you are sure to meet people. (USA – 1/11/2014)

 

J’ai beaucoup apprécié séjourner au Palace Hostel! Malgré quelques péripéties en début de voyage j’ai pu me mettre à l’aise sans problème et le personnel est toujours là pour répondre à nos besoins que ce soit pour appeler un taxi, connaître des bonnes adresses à visiter/manger et pour se diriger dans la ville. l’ambiance est chaleureuse et j’ai pu y faire plusieurs belles rencontres aussi… :) L’endroit est très bien situé, sécuritaire et bon rapport qualité/prix. J’y retournerai sans problème. (Canada – 1/10/2014)

I stayed at The Palace Hostel my first two nights in Puerto Rico. It was a perfect transition to become accustomed to the region. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area. (USA – 1/2/2014)

Feliz año nuevo, me vine pa’ ca’ cpm $5 pesos en el bolesillo, con la aventurce en la cabeza, con las ganas de conocer Puerto Rico. Soy columbiana y PR me recuerda mi Cali querida, me encanta. (Columbia – 1/1/2014)

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms had air conditioning, which was great! since the temperature was around 30°C each day. They were even training new staff while I was there and this did not disrupt the quality of service. (Canada – 12/25/2013)

 

It was a steal when me and my Gf stayed there. A great time to San Juan, the taxi is just the opposite of the hostel and also the bus system take u to any where in the city. The staff are genuinely very helpful. We also met few like minded travelers in our stay there. We can cook our selves as long we clean things in the dishes. All in all I give it 9/10. (Bangladesh/Romania – 12/24/2013)

“This is one of my favourite hostels I’ve stayed at. The atmosphere is amazing. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I always have a good time at this hostel.”

 

“Great hostel! Multiple beaches are close! comfortable beds and great staff! For the $ it can’t be beat!
Def recommend!”

 

“Very nice and homely atmosphere. Highly recommended for anyone who’s looking for affordable, clean
and secure base in the heart of the capital. Offers great breakfast with fresh fruit. Popular with many
Europeans so nice to meet other young travellers too.”

 

“The staff was AWESOME! Josh and Steven were two cool guys that really helped us, and made sure we
had a great time. I really enjoyed my stay at The Palace, and if I’m going to San Juan again, I know where
I’m staying!”

 

“We loved staying here. Place was clean. Great big breakfast. Nice patio areas to hang. Great people.”

 

“Friendly place with informative hosts. The bed was comfortable, the room clean, the shared bathroom also clean. The outdoor spaces were beautiful and we enjoyed having breakfast on the sun-drenched upstairs patio. We walked into old San Juan from there a couple times, and caught a bus back which
went within a couple blocks — very convenient. A bargain! Thanks for the hospitality!”

 

“I would def come back. Josh makes you feel like you are at home & it was close to the beach, good
food, and some cool local bars. A/C is nice to have as well.”

 

“Very Clean for a Hostel. Great Balcony and outside breakfast areas, The Beds are Insanely comfortable
for any hostel or even Hotel. Great caretakers as well.”

 

“This is by far the best hostel experience I’ve ever had. The staff becomes like your family and the time
you spend with them will comprise some of your best Puerto Rico memories. The Palace Hostel is an
absolute MUST.”

 

“Don’t bother looking for any other place to stay in San Juan. DON’T! You want a hostel? Your search
ends here. If you cannot have fun at the Palace – then you must be a corpse. Even if you are drenched
upstairs patio. We walked into old San Juan from there a couple times, and caught a bus back which
went within a couple blocks — very convenient. A bargain! Thanks for the hospitality!”

“Don’t bother looking for any other place to stay in San Juan. DON’T! You want a hostel? Your search
ends here. If you cannot have fun at the Palace – then you must be a corpse. Even if you are one, your
body will be adequately dressed in a toga and fed bananas.”

 

“A wonderful place to stay! A really fun location that’s centrally located to everything I wanted, and I
appreciated the free breakfast – it was great! I would definitely go back!”

 

“This Hostel is very close to the Ocean and all the glitz and glamour of the Miami beach style area of San
Juan. However it is nestled in a authentic neighborhood filled with real deal Puerto Ricans. I enjoyed
many late night walks home from the beach at 4am, plenty of 24 hour diners and late night Puerto Rican
food on the way home. Josh was a great host and everybody there was super friendly.”

 

“The hosts here were two of the most knowledgable people we met on our entire trip. A combination
of Puerto Rican tour guide and true American hospitality! The rooms were clean, the building well kept
and well decorated. I could easily run to the beach and found the location of the hostel conveniently adjacent to shopping center, restaurants, banks and public transportation. We hope to visit again and would recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Puerto Rico.”

 

“place was great! Hostel was one of the better ones i have stayed in. The bed was comfy. Met a bunch
of other travelers there. The staff there were very fun and to talk to and also very helpful. Learned a lot
about the area and island simply from staying here. Went on a couple tours through the hostel and went
to so many places in a couple days that it was like a marathon. Highly recommended for travelers and
anyone wanting to visit puerto rico. i throughly enjoyed it.”

 

“The room was always clean and the bed incredibly comfortable. The area is safe and close to
everything. The staff very nice, friendly, and always available. I would definitely recommend.”
