Property Description

The new Palmira Hostel makes an extended stay in Tegucigalpa even more inviting – see why many travelers end up staying longer than they had planned!
The new Palmira hostel is still located in Colonia Palmira, the safest neighborhood in Tegucigalpa. This is the embassy district of the capital, with the United Nations building & American Embassy less than 2 blocks away – in fact, Palmira Hostel was actually the former Embassy of Ecuador. So if you’ve ever wanted to spend a night at an embassy, this is your chance.
You’ll also find supermarkets, restaurants & banks within walking distance of Palmira Hostel, along with pubs, bars & live music.
Palmira Hostel offers one large 16-bed dorm for budget travelers. It’s a long, large room with plenty of space, fans & locker storage (bring your own lock). Each bed also comes with 2 pillows each!
One advantage of a large dorm is that you have a great chance of getting a sought-after bottom bunk, especially if it’s not fully booked.
The dorm actually feels more like two 8-bed dorms, as there’s additional space in between & separate light switches.
There are also 2 full bathrooms, each with their own toilet & shower. Both the dorm & bathrooms will always be very clean during your stay. You’ll be surprised to find that your sheets will be changed every day too – not something you ever expect from a hostel!
Palmira Hostel offers a huge full kitchen for use. From an oven & microwave to a fridge & toaster, there’s really everything here you need to cook. All the crockery & cutlery are brand new too. You can enjoy your home-cooked meals in the patio area next to the kitchen. There are 2 large picnic tables, under the shade of umbrellas. There’s also a free barbeque for use as well as free purified drinking water.

The rooftop terrace at Palmira Hostel has the WOW factor! There are beautiful outdoor lounges & chairs to relax in, around wooden coffee tables with charming bonsai plants! It can get pretty hot up here, so put up the large sun umbrellas if you need some shade. Other seating areas include a table & chairs, a hammock & a cute wooden swing set – you can find more hammocks on the lower level. You can even watch TV & you’ll love the outdoor outlets!
There are free hand weights to use at any time of the day, if you can’t wait for the free yoga & workout sessions every evening! Or if you prefer watch the sun go down with a few beers
The rooftop terrace is a great social area to meet other travelers but it’s also large enough that you can have your own privacy if you prefer.
The property it’s surrounded by many trees around, facing a fantastic view of Tegucigalpa. You can even see the 32m tall Cristo del Picacho (statue of Christ) on the pine-studded slopes of the Parque Nacional El Picacho.

Nice place, just went there for an overnight stay. The staff is very nice and friendly, and the dorm has 2 bathrooms for around 8 people, which is great!

Great place to stay! Stayed only for one night but the private room was spacious, the fan worked great and the private balcony with the best views was amazing! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

I really didn't enjoy my stay here sadly. The staff weren't very helpful at checkin, didn't give details on any of the facilities(had to ask) and wasn't shown the room. The dorm is like a military room, so many bunk beds close together it was impossible to sleep. No hot water (there is a sign to explain) but is just an excuse - I left early and went to a home stay and they had hot water. overpriced and not a great stay
