The Palace Hostel staff was super friendly and helpful. Right when we arrived one of the workers offered to show us to various restaurants/delis/liquor stores in the area. He provided clear directions to the closest beach (Condado) and gave several recommendations for things to do and places to see. We shared the double room with A/C- it was clean and...

Had my best experience and memory of PR at the hostel. Super friendly and crazy staff, had dinner with them, went out with the guys and we ended up chilling at the beach and swimming at night in the sea of San Juan. The hostel is very clean and well located. Value for money. Good vibes! Keep up the good...

The Palace Hostel staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the surrounding areas as well as the entirety of the island. The hostel is a place where one could show up with very little idea of an itinerary, and find the destinations that they are hoping to discover with assistance from Matt, Victor, and the rest of the staff.
