A fantastic vibe in a charming hostel. Lovely people work there, all very happy to help. Would definitely recommend this to anybody interested in meeting new people and exploring the many natural wonders that Tenerife has to offer. Muy Buema Onda en este hostel!


Nice Finca with pool, very friendly personal, Hammok, Couches, Lockers, and lot more. Breakfast is good and much. Location is not central. Bus Station aprox 15 Minutes to go. Supermarket is 10 minutes away.


If you don't have a car expect to walk quite a bit. Not much in the area to see in my opinion, though the ocean is impressive. Young staff very helpful and pleasant, but I had to leave early to get a bus (before 8.30am), and although I appreciated breakfast was not until 8.30am, I was perplexed when the owner (Spanish speaking only), wouldn't allow me into the locked kitchen just to check whether I had left my bag of food in there.

Good morning! We really can't understand your commentary, the owners and all the staff speak English, and particulary the owner has a perfect English. As you could see breakfast is free so if you can not have it we always suggest to go and have something in the bar near here or to ask us and we can prepare something for you the night before (we always are available for suggestions and to solve little problems like this, I hope next time you can speak more with us and communicate your needs).


Well maintained Owners receptive to comments and very helpful.


The shared rooms are kept open. But you have a medium locker for your things. The staff gives great tips! Very good

hello there! Nice to see that you've liked our hostel and staff! Shared rooms are open as in every hostel as it's to many people to give a key to everyone and it would be really noisy and confusing. With the locker you can stay sure that nobody touches your stuff. We hope to have you back here soon! A big hug from all Lagarto staff!!!!


The hostel is great, everything is good, but it is too far from civilization... Breakfast and other facilities are very good, but it is better to rent a car to explore Tenerife. Dominique is very attentive and friendly)


Very nice Hostel with Swimmingpool, not far from the sea and the northern mountains. Maybe the breakfast could include more different things than just bread and jam.

Thanks for your commentary, really nice to see that you passed a nice time here! Our breakfast includes bread, jams, eggs, cereals, milk, coffee, infusions and above all it's totally included in the price. I hope next time you can enjoy breakfast too! Thanks and see you soon!


Awesome hostel! The staff was fantastic and they put together a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner.


Waouw, just unbelievable place!!! Probably the best in Tenerife (I've made a lot so far)!!! Super staff (friendly & helpful)! They have a nice place with some canarian crafts... Just the way I love to spend my vacations!!! Thank you to the Lagarto!!!

Can be a bit tricky to find the hostel, but staff is so friendly and amazing that you won't be lost for sure! :) Staff knows a lot about all the island, so they can give you tips where to go, what to see and what is must-visit :)
