I spend two nights in the Blues Room and enjoyed it very much. It is a quiet and peaceful place there you can relaxe and calm down. I had an amazing breakfast after a long night with other guys I never met before. We had fun while cooking in one of the kitchens. Also I came in contact with other... More

This Place is a Must for Budget travellers and Fans of international ambience. The owner is a good storyteller and built the whole building with lots of Sense for Details. There is even a jacouzzi :) A Great Hostel with a warm and Adventurous atmosphere!

I just stayed there for one night 5/18, and was very pleased with my stay. The owners and other guests were friendly, there is a BYOB cozy outdoor bar and a nice kitchen. My room was nice and comfortable. I really liked the fact that you can make your own breakfast, and they provide the food and coffee! I will... More

I stayed at Gram's Place for 6 nights for Big Guava Fest and it was incredible! The owner Bruce and manager Christine are wonderful people - so accommodating and friendly, their hospitality made our stay wonderful! Some of the locals that would also come and hang out at the place were also really friendly. It's a great spot to meet... More

I had the most amazing time here. Everything from the decor (eccentric and cozy) to the vibe (chill and laid-back) and the people (friendly, fun, and super interesting) are so my cup of tea! That said, not unlike anything else, it isn't for everybody. If you're laid-back, like to socialize with people from all walks of live, and love music,... More

I have often stayed at Gram's Place, spent time at the frequent barbecues and played loads of music there. It is an all around safe haven for travel in the heart of Tampa. There are several private rooms for the crowd like me that enjoys privacy. If you want to Hostel it, that possibility exists although I have never stayed... More

I am a University student and I have never stayed in a Hostel before, so upon arriving at Gram's Place I had extremely low expectations and an enormous amount of anxiety about my stay. However, I was severely mistaken! Gram's Place is eclectic (with brightly colored rooms and collected decor) and it reminds me of Key West. Despite its uniqueness,... More

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

I searched for backpacker hostels in Tampa area and read the great reviews of this place so thought we'd check it out, am traveling with my dad. The only room available was a mixed dorm room so we took that. Having stayed in many backpacker hostels across the world, some great, some not so this definitely falls into the not... More
