This hostel has one of the most beautiful views on the island. From here you can see all the important peaks on Gran Canaria, and Roque Nublo as well. There are many hiking routes available nearby. The hostel is clean and the staff was great, very kind and helpful. This makes for a perfect getaway from crowded tourist areas.

The facilities listed are wrong ie no cable tv. Its not 18c inside in winter. Probably about 14c.There is a fan heater in the larger dorm and that should be used in the living area as the bar heater being used in there was useless. Good duvets on the beds. Two rings on the cooker. Large fridge.Stunning location. From the church walk to the viewpoint then left along the road until it ends. Good hostel for chatting and as a base for walking.

Hi Vincent and thanks for your feedback. To be honest we never ever listed cable tv as a facility, we are totally against weapons of massive brain washing, instead we embrace an alternative lifestyle. Caves are isotherm, warm in winter, cool in summer but this winter Canary Islands registered lowest temperatures in 16 years. Anyway, thanks again and hope to see you again in any of our projects around the island.

Staying at this cave hostel was a wonderful experience. We had an amazing view on the mountain landscape (the sunrise was really beautiful) and the staff was very friendly. he atmosphere was very nice and laid back. There's no WIFI or other entertainment on a winter evening, so everybody just talked and shared meals together. If you're in Gran Canaria and you want to do more than beaches and surfing, then definitely book a bed here!

Nice Hostel, with basic equipment and charming character. You have an awesome view (if there are no clouds) and its a good starting point for any hiking trips. Stuff was very friendly and we met some very nice people.

Very nice experience in the cave hostel. We saw the amazing sunset just after our arriving. The host are nice and charming people who make good banana pancake for the guest for breakfast ;) I ate a lot. I really enjoyed my days in the mountain. Just a little bit cold to visit in January.

Might be the most beautifully located hostel I have stayed at, and also the one with the best atmosphere. A part of me would like to just stay there forever. Go if you like nature, relaxation and nice people. Bring warm clothes if you go in winter (I don't believe it's 18 degrees inside, but there is a heater in the common room). If you plan to stay only one night, think again - stay longer. Enjoy.

Fantastic views, very nice bed, warm atmosphere both because of people and of the heater. Thanks to Peter for a walk to another cave hostel, if you want more remote atmosphere go there, this one is quite modern, we even have washing machine. Anyway it was great experience!

nice view, two simple rooms with 2x2 bunk beds, basic standards. Situated on a hill slope, make clear, that you have the right directions to find the hostel, good hiking in the area.

I had a great time at the hostel. The location is excellent for walking in the surrounding mountains. The view from the terrace is one of the best I have ever seen it's worth making a visit just for that. The staff were excellent, particularly Chanti and Ali who were happy to help me with anything I needed. I even managed to get vegetarian meals in a local bar The Tamadado in the nearby village of Artenera.

Just spent Thanksgiving weekened at the cave hostel and had an incredible time! The island itself is beautiful as there are a mix of stunning landscapes and we were extremely happy that we chose to stay up in the mountains. It is important to note that it is about a 2 hour drive from the airport to the hostel. Overall, the hostel staff was extremely friendly and accomodating and we would like to return again soon. It was honestly the best hostel experience we´ve had yet!

I absolutely loved staying in this cave hostel. it was magical especially waking up to jaw dropping stupendous beauty of these exquisite mountains. We stayed in all weathers and each kind of weather offered wondeful delights of light play and atmosphere. Neill and PAtrick welcomed us with sincere love and great hospitality, coffee and scrumptious fruity pancakes for breakfast. ideal hostel for those wanting to explore deep into the mountains. a very relaxed and inspring atmosphere. thanks guys x

Excellent place to explore a beautiful part of Gran Canaria. Very nice, laid-back atmosphere and staff is great! I especially liked that they had two mountainbikes that you could just borrow for free (biking was hard but rewarding). I would definitely recommend this place to people who love to be in nature. One warning: google maps does not very accurately display the location of the hostel, ask a local to prevent searching! The village is small so almost everybody knows the hostel.
