I stayed there in April 2012 and it's one of the best hostels to visit. It's hidden on a very nondescript block and that's part of it's charm; at least it was to me. I never felt in danger, my belongings were safe and the staff was fantastic.

Great location and rooms were clean. Came for a quick stay with a friend and had a great time here. We did not spend a lot of time in the hostel, however employees were very nice and helpful. Would stay here again.

Got a great deal on a 2 bedroom hotel and was really happy with it over all. Swimming pool and bar were definitely perks and met some nice people. Staff were helpful and the rooms were clean but could use some modernization.

Staying at the Palace hostel was great: cool people will tell you what to visit in the city and around the island and the atmosphere with all the guests is pretty nice. There is a bus next to the hostel to get downtown quite easily too.

Great place! There were smiles galore and they keep it tidy. It's walking distance to the beach and many shops and bars. There are plenty of lounge areas and I recall the mattresses being pretty plush--like a day at the spa! Good vibes and people mon! Salud!

Close to the beach night clubs and train station. Everything you need is close and everybody was great to deal with. You will have a great time if you stay at the Palace. Oh and the A/C work great. I've stayed there 3 times and I'll be back in November.

The Palace was nice although difficult to find and is situated somewhat out and away from the center of things. Kitchen was really small. Room was nice. Hosts were friendly. Overall facilities seemed nice. Not many people were there though.

The place was a little hard to find. It's in a room of a building. If you do a sand safari make sure you know where the pick up location is. The place is new so not a lot of people know of it, but its in a pretty good location.

Nice cheap place to stay. You can walk to the downtown tourist sites, and buses are close. The Palace is near where the cruise ships dock. The place is clean, and minor glitches like a broken coffee pot were worked around. Some guests do not clean up well in the kitchen, but that is not the hostel's fault. Showers had...
