Despite having some issues, this hostel would be acceptable if it wasn't because you have to fight to enter in the bathrooms. We stayed there for three days, and we were always surprised by the big amount of people that you could see everywhere. Observing that many of them where entering a door behind the terrace, I was wondering if... More

I liked staying here,but....very tatty around the edges,all furnishings look VERY tired and worn,falling apart mostly.Takes shabby chique to a whole new level! The rear outdoors patio resembles a refugee camp,with fifteen (15) one person tents (see photograph) side by side,front to rear,absolutely not what camping is about. Because of this it puts a massive strain on the washing/showering/toilet and... More

Really nice people, loved the fact that if you put your name down the hostel would cook dinner for you! We were literally there only to sleep so didn't really get the full vibe.....however it looked like a good place to base yourself, even an outdoor gym! For those who give this hostel a low review for noise - it... More

My trip to Tenerife was only a 1 week-timeout on my own, but as soon as I checked in at Los Amigos, I made amazing friends and was not alone for a single second during my stay. There is a huge sense of community, which made the whole stay just perfect. It's closest to the Southern airport (they offer transfers... More

It was perfect for me. Met some nice people there. Never before been in hostels, but in future going to always use only them. Free buffet breakfast every morning and tasty meals at good price in evenings. When travelling solo could not think any better place to go. Good location for water sports or discovering the island. Also good for... More

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights and had a fantastic time. The hostel is always tidy and staff are always there to help. Great value accommodation with yummy meals cooked every night at a good price. Love the outdoor area and the background music. Would definitely stay again :)
