We are ideally located for guests who seek to know the less touristy side of Puerto Rico. We are within close proximity to many of the city’s greatest attributes such as Condado beach, Condado Laguna, Parque Central, Centro de Convenciones (Convention Center), train station, and the San Juan marina. Moreover, because of our location, we have the benefit of having delicious and affordable local Puerto Rican food within minutes of the hostel. For those who wish to see the sights, there is a bus stop just 5 minutes away to Old San Juan, Isla Verde, Piñones, and Río Piedras.

Our philosophy is simple: we want all of our guests to leave with great memories of Puerto Rico. That being said, we pride ourselves in offering the best customer service and providing a safe, fun, and friendly atmosphere for all of our guests. We regularly welcome guests from around the world, and enjoy catering to each guest’s unique cultural needs and languages.

By taxi from the Airport:
There are plenty of taxis outside of the baggage claim at the airport. When you leave the airport tell them you need a ride to this address:
666 Calle Suau, Santurce, San Juan, PR
*The best thing to tell the taxi driver:
- We are located in Miramar
- We are located across the street from the Metro Taxi stop in Miramar.
*If they still do not know the location, then say:
- It is located after Calle Cerra on Ponce de Leon. (Mention the ‘Colegio de Abogados’)
In a nutshell, we are located between Calle Hoare and Calle Cerra and Calle Fernandez Juncos and Ponce de Leon. Those four streets make a box around Calle Suau which is where we are located.
**Note: Taxis in San Juan typically charge a flat rate for all distances. For example, to go five minutes down the road can cost the same as thirty minutes across town. (We know, it doesn’t make sense…) From the airport, you should expect to pay $15-18. Most guests give the driver a $20 bill to include a tip, but that is entirely up to you. You should not pay more than $20 to arrive at our hostel. Occasionally, drivers will try and charge $1 for excess luggage.**

By bus from the airport:
On the upper level of the Luis Munoz Marin International airport look for the nearest bus stop to your right of the exit. Take bus #40 to Isla Verde. You will get off at the very first bus stop about 3 min away from the airport in front of the Denny’s
From ‘Isla Verde’, take bus T5 to Ponce de Leon in Miramar. (Always confirm with the driver where they’re going.) Tell the driver you are going to Miramar and you will exit at the intersection of Ponce de Leon and Hoare. You will see a bakery/sandwich shop (Al Gusto) on your left hand side. You will go left on Hoare until you reach the next intersection, Jose Marti. Go Left. The street only goes right into Suau. Walk down the street and you will see an empty lot on your right hand side. The Palace Hostel is adjacent to the left side of the empty lot on right hand side of the street.
The bus fare is $0.75 for each route/bus for a total of $1.50 and exact change is needed. We are a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.
Never hesitate to contact us if you have any issues!
