A couple of minutes' walk from the main square, home to several terrace cafes and the hostel’s sister hotel, Juma. Other than that, not a great deal going on here, so worth hiring bikes or a car if you want to get out and about. Both of which can be done through the hostel.
Bright, airy and spotlessly clean, these hostel rooms have come a long way since my backpacking days. All six of them (a mix of doubles and twins) have soft, white bed linens, bags of storage space, ensuite bathrooms – loved the hot pink sink in my room - and cheery touches like fresh flowers by the bed, candy-coloured throw cushions and rugs, and free Internet access.
For a hostel, impressive. No gloomy, moth-bitten furniture here. Instead tastefully tiled floors, leather sofas and armchairs jazzed up with brights and works of art by the owner’s daughter. It’s a great place to hang out and make friends with other like-minded travellers. Outside there’s a small walled courtyard, which makes a pleasant afternoon retreat with a cup of coffee.
Eating and drinking
In high season breakfast is served in the informal dining room. Out of season, breakfast is served around the corner at the hostals sister Juma. Evening meals and lunch need to be taken outside of the hotel, but Pollensa has lots of good options.
In-room massage can be arranged if you so desire.
Super friendly, very knowledgeable about the island, and totally unobtrusive. Just as a hostel should be.
Who stays there
Young, fun-loving, yet grown up types. It's sociable, but don’t come expecting wild, all-night parties.
Not really hostel prices, but worth the extra expense for the added comforts.
