“Good hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Good hostel. Pretty loud and not a proper place for people who need total silence during night time, so bring ear plugs with you. Sometimes there is also no hot water and wifi might also not work. The breakfast consists of toasts and jam.
But hey, it is a hostel. You meet friendly people and have a good time. The price is appropriate for this place. There is not a big choice in Medano. In fact, its the only one in town.
The hostel is perfectly located in the centre.
Try to get a bed in the smaller rooms with 4 or maximum 6 beds.

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

Stayed here for 7 nights slept only on one or two of them. There is bar across the alley that plays loud music all night long so if you don't party all night and go to sleep when the bar closes you don't get any sleep. The kitchen is very dirty wasn't cleaned properly for a looong time. Otherwise the bathrooms are small but clean and the staff is very friendly. The Wi-Fi didn't work for the whole week. When i arrived they told me it just broke today an that it will be fixed by tomorrow. I would not stay here again.

It's a beautiful building next to the beach in the middle of a charming village. People are very kind. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They have free internet access, solarium, play room... but for me the best is the place and the people we meet there.

We're very lucky to have such a place. I live in the North of the island and have been coming down to El Medano for years for windsurfing, and have only had the option of staying in hotels, which are quite expensive, or camping which can be pretty tiring. So I'd like to say a big thank you to Gloria, Rodrigo and Cris for being so enterprising in opening Casa Grande.
The place is clean, functional, and a great base for meeting interesting people from all corners of the world. A friendly atmosphere here everytime I come. Of course I could make a list of petty items that could be improved, but these are greatly outweighed by the positive things.

Room Tip: if you have some late night people in your room, you could try swapping with someone else.
