“Just don't go there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The hostel was dirty and the staff very rude. Expecially the coordinator seems not to have idea of what she is doing. The room they gave us was very noisy, ground floor with a 3 metrs high window with no tent that lets the light come in from 7 in the morning. And they knew we where travelling with a baby.
The hostel is self flagged child friendly and don't even have a high chair.
The kitchen is a Picasso painting, with the fridge and the only two drawers for hosts completly packed and no room for your stuff. The common table for eating is 1 square meter, supposed to be enough for 22 hosts.
There are only 3 restroom and you have to ambush the shower in order to get in.
And is the most expensive hostel in town. Plenty of other accomodations in that area. Just don't go there.

This hostel has an excellent location right by the Ocean in Las Palmas. Its a small hostel with a welcoming staff and neat artwork on the walls. They have a free computer to use and a group dinner. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The only thing lacking is a small common area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

One of the best hostels i have stayed in.
All the staff are friendly and willing to help.
There is a lot of information on local activities and things like car hire. Not to mention the day trips that are organized by management from time to time.
I would definitely stay again!
