3 Best Hostels in Mallorca, Spain – Stay in Palma City, by the Beach or in an Authentic Majorcan Village
A little birdie told us that you’re in search of the best hostels in Mallorca. Welcome to the only guide you will need to get the best experience of this Balearic Island!
Did you know…? The island is called Mallorca (Majorca) and the main city with the airport is called “Palma de Mallorca“, or simply Palma. Palma is the capital city of Mallorca island. And we also have a dedicated guide on the best hostels in Palma de Mallorca!
The hostels in this collection are located in Palma de Mallorca, Sóller and Esporles – so basically in the main city and over the island in beautiful villages, near beaches. We’ve made it clear where each hostel is located to avoid confusion.
Make sure you are clear where the hostel is located by checking the map before booking.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Hostel Albergue Juvenil: Aka Mallorca youth hostel. You will notice that nearly all of the Balearic Islands hostels include this in their hostel name. That’s because most of them are designed for people aged 30 and under. However! That doesn’t mean if you are older you are not welcome to stay (unless stated). If you are over 30 you will need to provide an International Hostelling Association membership card. Some hostels can sort this for you at reception, otherwise you can buy one online.
El Casco Antiguo: This is the Old Town of Palma de Mallorca and where most of the must-see tourist attractions can be found. It is the best area to stay in Majorca if you want to be central.
Car Rental: For the overall best experience, I highly recommend renting a car in Mallorca. It is the easiest way to get around and explore villages and beaches.
These are our favorite hostels in Mallorca. We want to make your life even easier, so we put all accommodations on a map for you. We even added our own tips for favorite restaurants, things to see, and more.

Flights to Mallorca?
Mallorca’s main airport is in Palma de Mallorca. You can take a taxi to the city center or the public bus, it is very well connected. Please bare in mind, August is absolute high-season and flights can be more pricey.
If your time allows, I recommend travelling in June or September/ October. Weather is wonderful, prices are way cheaper and beaches more empty. For me, this is the perfect time.
Mallorca is very well connected with many major destinations. You can even score super cheap flights from Barcelona to Mallorca for 15€ if you are lucky. I recommend setting a price alert on your preferred flight tracker. My favourite is Flights.Google.
We use Skyscanner and Omio.com to find cheap flights and good connections all over the globe.
Skyscanner has a bunch of cool features like Multi-City Trip. Instead of doing this research step-by-step, Skyscanner offers this flight planning tool.
Not all hostels in Mallorca are necessarily safe, especially the one that offers the cheapest price in sketchy areas. It might be an illegal hostel, without proper license to run and safety measures.
So in all fairness, it is best to check out Hostelgeeks.com because we feature safe hostels in Mallorca. You can find backpacker hostel with top ratings! Keep a close eye on the overall ratings on booking platforms!
If you are not secure, you can also send us an email and ask us!
