“rooms were nice but...”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 via mobile

the rooms are definitely clean, spacious, and value for the money. the only thing is the location is up a horrific hill and stairs so bad if you have a suitcase. also probably wouldn't stay here again as my friends had a bad experience and think their room was haunted.

After reading some reviews I wasn't really sure whether choose Hostal Terramar or not, but we decided to give it a try because of great location. I must say that it was probably best hostel experience! Our room was clean, beds were OK (we are both quite tall-so just little bit short for us), we always had hot water and the owner was very nice and helpful.
We stayed in room no.22 and we couldn't reach internet access, so had to go to 'shared room'.
Location is totally great-just 3min walk to bus stop and you can take bus (no.1 = €2.50) straight to the airport or just walk for 20 minute to the center /15 to port where you can take ferry to Ibiza or Barcelona!
The only annoying thing was group of young guys who went to Mallorca just to get totally drunk and make mess all over the place, but it's probably usual in destination such as Palma :(
We recommend this place!

A nice, spacious, and clean apartment. It had a kitchen, which was very useful for making small meals. The one negative is that there was no air conditioning -- and it was so hot in August!
It's nothing fancy, but it's worth the money. The apartment was nice, there is a rooftop where some people hung out, and the location is great -- very close to the sea and other great spots. Also, within walking distance to many sites and has street parking if you're parking a rental car.

The hostel is situated on a bus route with easy access to palma, magaluf and a couple of nearby beaches. There are clubs, bars etc about 3 minutes walk from the hostel including el divino and titos. The area is good for going out, late drinks, choice of venues and a relaxed spanish atmosphere. The area benefits from not being over run by tourists like nearby magaluf and the place is better for it. As for the hostel it was fine for the money. We arrived late but could still get in the building. The rooms themselves were basic. A plasitic cup, sink, wardrobe, bed and fan. For the price its fine. Ignore what it says about the roof terrace as we went up there but were told it was for apartment residents only. It wasnt very nice up there anyway with one table and a couple of broken chairs. The hostel did smell of fish food on arrival but this smell didnt remain. The shared toilets are shared toilets so you get what you expect and the showers were adequate. The staff were very good and spoke various languages. The rooms were also expertly cleaned every day which was agood touch. For the money its fine, good location, clean rooms and efficient staff.

I was a little nervous when the taxi dropped us off for our four night stay at the Terramar. It was a little rough looking as well as the area around. The rooms are very basic, there's a shared kitchen available and the staff was wonderful. Although my first impression wasn't a great one, I really enjoyed my stay here. It's close to the city, Bellver, and close to many nice restaurants. You can also take the bus on the main street to avoid high taxi fare to the airport. Overall a nice stay and I would definitely go back if I returned and recommend to anyone traveling on a budget.

Terramar offers clean, simple rooms, most with shared bathrooms, and a shared kitchen in an old house with some remaining charm, not far from Palma's CBD. For walkers this is a fine location, in a close-in neighborhood with good bus lines, just off the city's landmark marina. Restaurants, internet cafes, car rental agencies galore. This is a limited service hostel, and the employees were helpful and spoke English.
