“Wonderful week at the Volver Hostel Holiday House”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The location, staff, fellow guests, accommodation, views, decor - just about everything was just wonderful .... spent most of the week on the terrace. Our room was just off this terrace with views across the port and ocean. Everyday someone came over from the main hostel to do some chores and a chat ..... simply the best hostel I have ever stayed in.... I understand that the holiday house will soon be available on a whole house basis - which is even better, as we plan to take our friends back with us next time ... and there will DEF be a next time.... will go back..... Mogan is great too and very friendly people .... laid back. The only problem was the 'rather lacking in various tune" caged bird next door which sang deadbeat ditty's all day.... but hey, no cack karaoke or drunk English yobs - so bird was a blessing......

Room Tip: Room 3 was great!!!!!! Its a triple sleeper.... Room 1 has a double and a loo ensuite but only doors...

Volver is centrally located in Puerto de Mogan, Gran Canaria. The lovely harbor, restaurants, grocery store, the bus station and the beach is within minutes walk. To get to the hostel there are several steps, so be aware if you are traveling with a heavy suitcase instead of a backpack.

The Volver Hostel is clean and very artistically inspired. The hostel has nice tile decorations and a unique interior. The beds are okay and you have your own locker. You pay a 10 € key deposit. Linen is included in the price. Towels are for rent together with some other useful items. The hostel also have some leisure equipment which you can borrow and/ or rent. They also provide information of things to do while you are in Mogan area.

In the six bed female dorm there is a window which was open all night long so we could have fresh air. There are storage for food a kitchenette. The Volver hostel has a beautiful roof terrace with a spectacular view of Mogan.

The staff is very friendly and I felt very welcome. The other guests were also great.

I found the Volver Hostel as a unique and nice place. I can truly recommend this hostel. If you are traveling on a low budget this is the place to stay in Puerto de Mogan.

Room Tip: I can recommend a female dorm if you are female. This room has window so you can get some fresh air.

My husband and I recently spent one week at the Volver hostel, and were really happy about our stay. We stayed at the second house, which offers at bit more privacy than staying at the main hostel. Our double room was big and clean - and since the two other couples that stayed in the other two rooms at the same time were so nice, it was no problem that we had to share shower and kitchen. Every night we had interesting conversations and good laughs along with our housemates, up on the roof terrace. The wiev is fantastic, both night and day.

If you want, you can always go over to the main house to socialize with the people staying there. Everyone is so friendly and relaxed.

This is a hostel, not a hotel, and you need to climb quite a lot of steps to get up here, but it's good exercise and well worth the effort. You get clean sheets, and you can rent towels if you'd like to.

(Warning: Puerto the Mogan is really peaceful and charming, not at all like some of the other tourist spots at Gran Canary. if you'd like to party all night long - go elsewhere!)

loved our stay here. the guys working here are really friendly and great to hang out with. The hostel doesn't feel like a hostel, it feels like you're staying at a friend's house. The rooms are super clean, the beds are really comfy and the bathrooms are decorated really nicely. The kitchen has everything you need to make food and has the most amazing view of the bay. But the best thing has to be the terrace - it's the most amazing, laid back space where you can just chill and just take it easy. The hostel also rents snorkel gear, towels and you can do your washing as well. There are small lockers in the rooms for any valuable stuff. Loved our stay!

Stayed there twice within three weeks and just adore the place. The people are friendly, the bathrooms are artistic and clean and the staff is brilliant. Puerto de Mogan is a haven and an escape from the hustle and bustle in Puerto Rico, or other touristic places for that matter!
The beach is great. ps: theres a lot of stairs to get there, but well worth is for the reward of a magnificent view!
