“Cheap and well serviced!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We stayed only one night at this hostal, but I can tell you that this is a very good value in Menorca. Even in high season middle of July, in the centre of Mahon, we payed only euro for a double including breakfast, which is unbeatable in this season on the island... The rooms were basic, but very clean, fresh, and quite spacious. The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast was a nice extra included in the price.
Definetely a recommendation if you need a cheap place to stay in Mahon center!

Difficult to understand how this is a one star hostal. Far closer to a 3 and far better than a lot of hotels I've stayed in. Clean, comfortable en-suite rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. Few minutes walk from the centre of Mahon.

Ideal, and at about 22 euros per night far far too cheap for what you get :-)

Room Tip: Stayed in several rooms here, all equally as good.

Very clean, very well looked after and comfortable rooms and communal areas. Independent hotel owned by 3rd generation son of a son of a son! Don't be misled by the fact it's a 2 star 'hostal'. If you're travelling as a single or a couple this place is perfect.

3 mins walk from the town centre, owner and staff always smiling, always welcoming, always helpful. Also has one of those showers you won't want to get out of and one of those bars you find it difficult to leave...

It's relatively inexpensive for Mahon which might make you think it's a cheapy. It ain't.

This place is not 4-star, but it is centrally-located, clean and adequate. Maybe a bit noisy from time to time - they need to fix the bedheads to the wall so that they do not bang against it every time you move in the bed, etc. It is not expensive - EUR27 per night - and that includes a passable breakfast, pleasantly served by Paco (who seems to be doing everything there).
There is a bar downstairs - so you can get a coffee, a glass of wine or a beer at any time. And they serve a 3-course meal in the evening - cost :EUR10. It is not gourmet, but it is quite substantial, and "homemade" - i.e. with a Menorcan influence.
And the wifi works!

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.
