The only negative comment is that the closes bus stop is around 17 minutes by walking (including a steep hill). Other than that, everything is superb!

Had an amazing time there, great and helpful staff, good atmosphere. A bit off the track, so a car is necessary but there is plenty of parking space on the hostel property.

Excellent place to stay. You really need to have transport.

Best Hostel í´ve stayed in so far. Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere in good surroundings. Had a great stay and party during the new year celebrations (thank you for the great work on the new year dinner!! :-) ). Thinking it´s might going to be a tradition to go there. VERY MUCH RECOMMENDED!!


Cool, friendly and laid back atmosphere! Helpfull staff, a great place to meet up with other travellers! Highly recommended 😊


The place is absolutely amazing! Yes the hostel is a little out of the way, but it is quite is to reach by bus and an easy walk or by car if you have one. The atmosphere is fantastic and the place really feels like home. I met a lot of really cool people there and I can't wait to go back!


Had a great couple of days at Lagarto Hostel, really nice chilled place with beautiful gardens and wonderful staff. They were happy to give advice on places to visit, make a great breakfast and even better "family-style" evening meal. Felt more like a home than a hostel, would highly recommend staying and visiting the area (as it's awesome / so different from the South of Tenerife). Only downside is the limited number of toilets in the hostel! Although this didn't cause much delay tbh.


Hey Mattia, Hey Vito, Hey Stuff-Girls, It was again such a great stay again. All the details in the evaluation! Thank you for beeing welcomed in your circle of friends for some days. ;-) That's what it feels like staying in your hostel. Till next time! :-)

hello Tim! Many thanks for your commentary, it was a pleasure to have you with us another time! You know... it's this kind of commentary that gives us the energy and motivation to continue doing things as we do! Many many thanks!!! See you soon!


The hostel and the staff are great. The house is really cozy, accessorized and clean. The only problem is that this hostel is located in a small village (20 min from La Laguna). If you don't have a car it is quite hard to arrive to this hostel).
