Reviewed 29 April 2013

I found La Isla Hostal to be a very friendly place run by a lovely family. It's in a convenient spot for shopping etc. Can walk to most places, but is very close to buses as well. The rooms are above a cafe/bar that's very welcoming to travelers. The owner is a sweetheart and will do anything to make your stay perfect. A good breakfast with great coffee! Can also order a very inexpensive, but tasty dinner as well. Not everyone on the staff speaks English, but always were accommodating.

Nice atmosphere of family run hotel; perfect location for exploring the city and surroundings. Very friendly staff give you value tips, how to explore the capital. You can start day there with typical Spanish breakfast: tasty coffee and famous ensaimada and also taste daily 3-courses menu for reasonable price. We really enjoyed our stay there.

staying here felt like being part of the family with friendly owner. great value great homecooking with dinner and lovely bottle of wine 10 euros each. walking distance to harbour to go on boat trips or dining. Possible to walk to bus station for day trips to other areas. Comfortable bed. Airconditioning quiet and worked well during hot weather.nice sized bathroom with shower over full size bath. Great coffee with breakfast made by owner, not from self service machine as is sadly so common these days.

Room Tip: bring shampoo as often in Spain toiletries if provided at all are only for first day or so.

We spent 3 nights at la isla and used it as a base to explore Mahon and surrounding beaches.
The rooms were air-conditioned and clean. The breakfast was adequate and the coffee was good. For 60 euros a night inkling breakfast you could not ask for more in peak season.
Lunch and dinner were available at a cost of 10 euros. We had a nice home cooked lunch of 3 courses and a bottle of wine to share for 20 euros which is great value.
The host and his family and all the staff were very friendly.
Would recommend for a short stay or for those on a budget.

If you want to find a base while in Maon, that is good value, clean and with friendly service, this is a good place to go. The accommodation is basic, but the rooms are clean, they come with air conditioning, although the batteries in our remote had stopped working. It's not picturesque, however the white washed walls and well kept accommodation make it a good place to go if you are traveling on a budget. The owners son, who runs the breakfast room and cafe that adjoin onto the hostel deserves a mention as he clearly takes pride in his work, was extremely helpful in giving us directions and was quick and efficient as well as very friendly. These little gestures help make for a memorable holiday stay. The address given above, shouldn't include ciutadella as this hostel is actually in Maon and it could be a little misleading.

Confusingly TripAdvisor implies that this hostal is in Ciutadella, when in fact in is in Mahon (Mao).

We stayed here for one night after a late flight before going on to an apartment in the south west.. The taxi dropped us off about 10.00 pm,. Although the hostal is quite central I think it might have been hard to find if we hadn't come by taxi. By the time we arrived the bar - where a notice on the hotel entrance told us to report - was closed. After some banging we did alert a member of night staff, and from then on our stay was trouble-free.

Our room was small, but very clean. The hotel is near the centre, but on a quiet side street, so there was no night time noise. We had breakfast in the bar the following morning - it included juice, cake, and toast.. With the toast you could have either cheese, ham or jam. Although we had been told that breakfast was not included in the - very reasonable - room rate, we were not charged for it. Most staff did not speak much English (and we speak little Spanish) but all were friendly and helpful.

The hostal is too basic for a lengthy stay, but it is well-located and well-priced for one or two nights in the city.
