This place was great! It's close to the beach and it's easy to plan tours with your new friends. Most nights we cooked food and drank rum together then went out on the town. They even have a puppy that is a total sweetheart.
I've stayed at other hostels on the island and nothing compares to this one. The others don't have the same family style attitude.I loved the free breakfast and memory foam mattresses. The managers, Shannon and Chris, and the other staff keep the place really clean and know everything to see and do in PR. I booked a different hostel and it wasn't what I was looking for. Then I showed up to the Palace and they took me in without a reservation.
I'll definitlely be back. Puerto Rico is like Hawaii but cheaper and in spanish.
