    This place is a wonderful escape from the noise of life for people with an adventurous free bohemian spirit. An old rugged yet clean and well cared for charm exists here that is unreplicatable. This is a bed and breakfast kind of hostel more commonly found abroad that will feel more like a home when you leave. A nice mixture... More

    I went to Tampa for a conference, and Gram's was suggested by some fellow attendees who also prefer real people and something creative, instead of big hotels. It fit the descriptions from the moment I walked in, and the real people were a good find. Now, it's a counterculture hostel, and for the cruise-taking big beige hotel tourist it would... More

    Gram's Place is an awesome experience by itself. Bruce and his staff were super friendly and went way beyond any normal hostel service. Bruce gave lots of great travel tips for seeing the city and avoiding traffic problems for the Buccaneers/Ravens game. He also loaned out his bicycles for a bike ride around the Riverwalk. The hostel was very laid... More

    My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights while we were in town for the Sunset Music festival. To be honest we were almost put off by the neighborhood it was located in at first but were more than happy with our lodging decision once we got inside. This place is a very chill, very cool, very hip... More

    Our Requirements: Budget friendly, private bath, clean & bug free room. Requirements were all met. This place is a flashback to the late 60's. Lived through it once and wasn't prepared for what we found. Yes, Gram's Place is like visit to Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love. It is a friendly, somewhat cluttered place and makes you feel a... More

    Great people friendly place!! I've stayed her a few times over the years, while attending local shows. The vibe is both energetic and relaxing. The owner and his staff have always been attentive to my needs. The other guests have always enriched my life with their worldly travel stories and perspectives. For a hostel that can have many people in... More

    I stayed there a few years ago in the shared room as a student and I will never forget it how dirty, unfriendly and noisy it was. I do like music but having it on all night? The owner was rude, unhelpful and just mean. I would not recommend it to anyone. Stay clear.

    It's a hostel...so be familiar with hostel lodging or you might be disappointed. This said, Gram's place is the ONLY reasonable, safe housing choice if you are flying into Tampa on a budget. It is a 70's throwback and you will meet a lot of really nice people. Bruce, the owner is a warm- hearted sweet man who will chill... More
