“Great place, Great management”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Hi All,
Just wanted to make clear that this is the best hostel I have ever been. It is not only about the hostel atmosphere and the staff, this is a place in which you will find much more, something that I can't really explain by words. Thank you again to all the guys involved in this hostel and I see you soon.

Great staff, nice place, great location (away from all the busy tourist locations). Definitely a good place to stay for those on a budget. Just make sure you rent a car to get around! It is close to mount roja which was a really cool mountain to hike up. El Medana was also a really nice city to visit and have dinner at. All in all a really pleasant stay. Would recommend this hostel to anyone coming to the island and wants an authentic experience.

Nice that you had a pleasant stay with our group :)

We really planned our location to be away from the mass
tourism area, so it really would make a difference in the
atmosphere also.

Do come and visit us again :)

This hostel is amazing! I was meant to stay here for 4 nights, but missed my flight and had to delay my stay by 3 days - they were so helpful in changing my reservation free of charge. When I got there everyone was so helpful and friendly, all the staff introduced themselves and became good friends instantly. Free wifi, free all you can eat breakfast, clean rooms, close to the beach. It is the perfect hostel and a great place to meet lifelong friends. :)

I was only here a few hours but they dealt with this really well. First I arrived really late, maybe 10pm. Next I had to leave for an early flight at 03:30. They did a really good transfer for me - with tea and biscuits in the car on the way in the middle of the night. Helped me with my bags. Faultless.
It seemed like an extremely clean place when I was there. Very well organised and beautiful. Well laid out. Internet worked fine for me. If the bed sheet doesn't fit try another.

Very calm and patient owner. I hope to go back purely just to be around such a calming person.
If you don't have a car then you could cycle to Medano for the water sports as that route is fairly flat. Other than that a car can be as little as £14/day.

Definately a favourite here, you won't go wrong here.

Room Tip: Maybe a tent is better!

Clean, nice, friendly, owners are very nice and environment is cosy. Its is very close to great beaches and water sports. You have a kitchen to cook your own food and a nice outdoor area to hangout. The staff is very helpful and interested in getting to know you and have you familiarized with the island.

Room Tip: Should rent a car to get off an around though.

Difficult to reach when you don't have a car, but the hostel has a really nice atmosphere at all. I spent a perfect week there getting to know the island!! (Tip: rent a car and you will enjoy your time in Tenerife better). Staff was very helpful!! Thank you a lot!

Room Tip: Private room is 100% better (even more if you are 2) but you have the option of the outside tents!

The crew in the Los Amigos Hostel is super friendly and they do everything to help you enjoying your time there and on Tenerife. The whole accomodation is great - the bathrooms and dorms are always clean and the free breakfast offers unequaled opportunities. You can meet a lot of fantastic and lovely people there which is important when you're travelling alone. You'll always find someone who'll give you a lift or join your trips. You have your own locker in the dorm as well as a separate light and plug next to your bed.The hostel is close to the airport and the beach is only 200m away.
Me and my friend spent our first 5 days on Tenerife there and when we came back after 6 more days it really felt like coming home for us.
