Situated right in the old town of Palma. Apart from that rather noisy (very thin walls, hostel bar/cafe downstairs) and expensive for the overall service and state of the facilities.


Such a bad idea was to stay at this hostel. It's like unfinished construction site that still smells like painting! The showers' room was a shame, there was only 2 toilets for kinda 30 persons. You'll certainly find yourself much better at some small hotel at "Arenal" area, avoid this hostel at all cost!


Very rude staff. Gave me the wrong room. I would recommend staying anywhere else possible. Atalanta at Arenal is MUCH better. Very dirty room and I've stayed at plenty of hostels. No lockers in the room and very small.


The bathrooms are very unclean which makes sense since I didn't see a single cleaner during my stay. There are no lockers and if you want to stall your baggage at the reception the charge you 3 euros for it (they have a small fee for everything). The hostel is also very noisy at night because of the cafe that has a terrace in the courtyard adjacent to all rooms. You'd better go for a different hostal, there are multiple in the center.


-no people on a weekend of summer? :( - good design, i liked the style - very central - some small details missing: nothing to hang your clothes during the shower! incredible. no stairs to get to the upper bed (you have to litterally CLIMB on it)

Central Palma Youth Hostel is perfectly located, opposite of a nice little plaza in the historic city centre. The rooms are clean and nice. Unfortunately the staff didnt care about us. If you could find someone to ask something it was always hard to get a proper answer.


Good place, near the center but calm. No locker with key in bedroom, showers nothing to say. I think they have done some change in that place. Maybe expensive for the room but i think we pay this price because it's Mallorca and to be in the center.

Walking distance from the Plaza Mayor and Placa d'Espanya. I was worried about cleanliness after reading reviews, but everything was typical for a hostel. Main complaint is that there are only 2 bathrooms/floor, and only 1 of them has a shower. Since there weren't any stalls, the entire bathroom would be occupied, and there was a decent line to use the shower in the mornings. Towels are 3 euros. If you need to be close to the historic center, avg place to stay. Glad I only was there 2 nights.


It is needed a room for keeping lugage.


Two Spanish men who work in the reception are rude, make drama about nearly everything and make guests feeling even guilty about their stay. The staff even promotes extremely loud sounds, shouting and door slamming until 2 or 3 am because receptionists take part in parties in the bar downstairs and does not ask the loud customers to respect the others. I was also disgusted by dirty and stained bed linen because other people’s public hairs were found on my sheet and pillowcase.
