Directions to The Palace Hostel
Map & Directions
By taxi from the Airport:
There are plenty of taxis outside of the baggage claim at the airport. When you leave the airport tell them you need a ride to this address:
666 Calle Suau, Santurce, San Juan, PR
*The best thing to tell the taxi driver:
- We are located in Miramar
- We are located across the street from the Metro Taxi stop in Miramar.
*If they still do not know the location, then say:
- It is located after Calle Cerra on Ponce de Leon. (Mention the ‘Colegio de Abogados’)
In a nutshell, we are located between Calle Hoare and Calle Cerra and Calle Fernandez Juncos and Ponce de Leon. Those four streets make a box around Calle Suau which is where we are located.
**Note: Taxis in San Juan typically charge a flat rate for all distances. For example, to go five minutes down the road can cost the same as thirty minutes across town. (We know, it doesn’t make sense…) From the airport, you should expect to pay $15-18. Most guests give the driver a $20 bill to include a tip, but that is entirely up to you. You should not pay more than $20 to arrive at our hostel. Occasionally, drivers will try and charge $1 for excess luggage.**
By bus from the airport:
On the upper level of the Luis Munoz Marin International airport look for the nearest bus stop to your right of the exit. Take bus #40 to Isla Verde. You will get off at the very first bus stop about 3 min away from the airport in front of the Denny’s
From ‘Isla Verde’, take bus T5 to Ponce de Leon in Miramar. (Always confirm with the driver where they’re going.) Tell the driver you are going to Miramar and you will exit at the intersection of Ponce de Leon and Hoare. You will see a bakery/sandwich shop (Al Gusto) on your left hand side. You will go left on Hoare until you reach the next intersection, Jose Marti. Go Left. The street only goes right into Suau. Walk down the street and you will see an empty lot on your right hand side. The Palace Hostel is adjacent to the left side of the empty lot on right hand side of the street.
The bus fare is $0.75 for each route/bus for a total of $1.50 and exact change is needed. We are a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.
