Friendly staff, clean rooms/toilets/showers - under bed storage (useful to take a padlock with you, although you can but them there) Great atmosphere! Nice food, would have liked more variety in food for breakfast,but was still great with pastries,fruit,toast,muffins etc. Would stay there again, and recommend to anyone!!

My first time stay at Palmers Lodge
I had a good experience staying at Palmers Lodge. I was staying at females dormitory. Beds were comfortable, shared facilities were cleaned on a daily basis, the stuff was helpful, and I got everything that I needed. The girls I shared the room with were nice and calm. I will not hesitate to stay at Palmers Lodge again.

Good6.0
good, but with errors
Everything was ok with the check in. We went out in he afternoon and when we went back to the hostal there were some people in our beds. We thought there was a mistake with the people but there wasn't. The problem was that the hostal had an error and gave our beds to these people. The guy in the reception was very helpful and gave us new beds, but it took him 1.5 hours, which was awful.
