I've stayed here twice, once in the Jazz Room and and once in the Adventure Room. The jazz room is more like a typical hotel room with an private bath. The adventure room, is, well, more of an adventure with an outdoor shower and bathroom. The bunk and skylight are lovely. All rooms have A/C, which is important 9 months out of the year! :)
The owner, Bruce, is so friendly and helpful. This is the type of place where you sit out in the common outdoor areas and hang out with the staff and other guests over a beer (there's a byob fridge and they keep it stocked with bud lite too). It is a little rough around the edges, but typical of a hostel. My rooms have always been clean, I've never seen bugs, and they provide towels but no toiletries. I can't stand cookie cutter, impersonal hotel chains. This place is the exact opposite.
The neighborhood is working class. I've left fairly nice rental cars here twice and no problems whatsoever. It's close to Ybor and Downtown Tampa, which is nice.
Best of all, if you forget a belonging at this place, Bruce will send it back to you for free. I'm an awful scatterbrain and have forgotten items at hotel chains and been met with a brick wall when inquiring after them. The staff at Gram's Place really care and will make the extra effort.
