Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We've spent 3 nights in this hostel.
Well located, friendly staff.
First 2 nights we were on the 4th floor. Old room, not very good smelling, but it was clean. Then we came back one week later and we had a room on the 1st floor. Well... The street is noisy so it's not the best floor. But the worst was that the bathroom had been used before our arrival, towels also. The really nice man at the desk gave us new towel. However when my friend took a shower, an awful smell came out of the waterworks.
So what to say... Location is perfect, staff is really friendly. But the place would need an urgent renovation!!!

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

We have been here twice before, in the last 9 months. For its location is perfect. For 1 or 2 nights. At the most. Palma old is lovely place. A must to see. Had no problem before. . Except for meeting the lady on the front desk. The manager/owner I am sure. . . . What a attitude she has for her guest. Who pay her bills. . We were taken by surprise, one morning. When we ask for a mug of hot water.( soup. cambridge diet ) . She shouted at my wife, telling her we do not give out hot water. Or the use of microwave for her guest. Health & safety ?? We are here to make money ?? Had no problem to pay for it.. But She went crazy. A complete head case , And talks down to her guest. She really needs to re-trained in hospitality trade. As i know she will read this review, and make some kind of rude comment, as she has done with other customers. Who written about her. .. . Be warned !! You will never experience warm welcomed she will give you !! so helpful and willing !! MAD > . .

Great Hotel, right in the centre of Palma. Friendly English speaking staff and very good value given the location. Recommend it! Staff on call 24 hours and helped with where to find things and spare chargers etc.

Room Tip: Go for the room with a bathroom, worth the extra.

Hostel Apuntadores can be a great place, or a really bad place - but you really need to know what you want! The upside is; It really is fantastically central. It is twominutes from the harbour and the Cathedral, in a very nice part of town, 20 seconds to nearest bar. Oh, but the rooms... It was clean, I'll give them that, but the rooms are really claustrophobic, you can hear EVERYTHING the neighbour is saying (or doing in the bathroom), the bed was probably the worst place I've slept since the army, the noice from the street is loud enough and the window.. well, we learned that only a few rooms have window with any kind of view, most windows turn to a narrow air shaft. No light! For this quality, I would not say that the price is low!! On the plus side, it is true what people say,though, the roof terrace is really tiny, but has an unbeateble view.

So - what are you searching for? This might be exactly the right place for you, or a place you really want to stay away from, I know that we appreciated the location, but oh, do my back hurt after three nights on this bed..

Stein, this review was posted on Tripadvisor on the second day of your three day stay. You were still with us. Why on earth didn´t you mention your dissatisfaction to someone in reception? We could have changed your room or refunded the unused nights. I don´t understand why you would complain online where nothing can be done whilst saying nothing to us. I am sorry you have a sore back. We would have been happy to help you avoid it if you´d given us the chance.
You booked a room with a double bed and these rooms are in the rear of the hostal. This is clear on the online description.There were twin rooms with views available and we would have switched you had we known you were unhappy. What a pity you preferred to voice your views online instead of taking the lift down to reception and finding a solution.
As you say "you have to know what you want" but you also have to be proactive to get it!

Simply, very good quality accomodation. Perhaps sacrificing the higher quality of some places in central palma for a really good location in the middle of the old town, close to restaurants and bars..

Room Tip: Pick one with an on suite shower

The location is excellent - five minutes from the Cathedral, with plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity, but not too noisy. Our room was spartan but clean and tidy, with comfy beds and a view of the cathedral from our balcony (a better view can be had from the lovely 7th floor terrace -with a lift to get you there!). 24 hour reception with friendly service. Breakfasts available at a reasonable price, but loads of cafes near by, so we didn't actually need to eat there at all. Would consider staying there again.

Thanks for the comments. You were so lucky with the weather weren´t you?. Glorious sun the whole day and the Christmas lights in the evening, December can be such a good month here.

We stayed at this hostel and found the location to be extremely convenient and walkable to almost everywhere we wanted to go. The place is fairly clean. The rooftop terrace of the hostel is amazing with some of the best views of the city and water! it's an excellent spot to hang out in the evenings.
