Absolutely loved my stay here and will definitely return. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming and the facilities were clean and cozy! It's located in a quiet little neighborhood with easy access to nearby beaches and bus stop. I would recommend Los Amigos to anyone!

Pros: very close to the Tenerife South airport, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, free breakfast and wifi, theme dinner nights, clean facilities, bikes/snorkels/etc to rent, great value. Cons: pretty far away from much of the cool stuff on the island (if I did the trip again, I'd definitely rent a car).

Owner Comment (Hide)
Our place is indeed in a more relaxed, chilled out area, away from the tourist masses :) But very good that you enjoyed our Hostel itself, if travelling and doing a lot of excursions on the island a car does come in handy, although with a bus you can get to main town centers easily. Do come and visit us again friend :)

I had a wonderful stay at Los Amigos. The staff was very friendly and provided a great island atmosphere. I would recommend renting a car if you planned on staying here, as it is a good walk (almost 2k) from the closest town.

Probably one of the most chilled hostels I´ve ever been to. Very friendly staff, nice clean rooms, rich breakfast buffet. Free internet is a big bonus in my eyes! lots of sofas in huge outside chill area. lots of stuff for rent: bikes, snorkel equipment, surf boards. A car is essential to get to the beach und to get around (but that counts for the whole island). One thing that could be improved are mosquito-nets in the windows. Would defintely come back!!

Hostel was fine and the people working there did try to help when they could but when I asked for directions to get to the other end of the island, they sent me to the wrong side of the road for the bus, wasting an awful lot of time. I had also took them up on their offer to pick me up at the airport (for a reasonable charge) but they didn't arrive, wasting another 45 minutes whilst I waited round for them before eventually getting a taxi. Would still go back though as they are nice lads.

We are very sorry about the mishaps with the pick up and the directions for the bus, deepest apologies for these. Glad you did enjoy your stay at the hostel itself and found us friendly :) We do hope that you come and visit us again and we are sure the next stay will be a lot better :)

Very friendly staff and climate in general. If you come for the first time to Tenerife, location is just fine, go to the beach (less than 1 km) or the nearest town Los Abrigos (1km). A tip: if you arrive closer to midnight the only way to get there from the airport is a taxi, about 16 Euros

“It's an excellent place to meet other travellers. The staff are mostly volunteers, who are there to have fun as well, and are very friendly. The problem is that if you're not going to Tenerife for surfing , you will basically find yourself in the wrong city as the beach was too windy (maybe not all year long). And by the way, the pool you see in the picture is something like 2 m2. haha! I travelled alone and met some very interesting people there.

We are so happy that our friendliness shined so much :D But yeah, it is not extremely windy all the time, some weeks are very windy and some are calmer. But, do come and visit is again, for sure you will notice next time that the wind is in your favor :)

An extremely well run hostel, right near the airport, good for starting and ending in Tenerife. The social spaces are as good as you can get and the breakfast makes a great start to the day.

Pros - Extremely chilled out, good family atmosphere, cooking facilities, cleanliness, friendliness of the volunteers, surprisingly fast wifi. Cons - Location is literally in the middle of nowhere. (Buses once or maybe twice per hour in each direction till 10pm). 3 bathrooms isn't enough (maybe ok if toilets and showers were separate). Background music is fine for the daytime, but a change in style and tempo is needed at around 6pm. Finally, cook some non veggie food!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Very good that you enjoyed the chilled atmosphere, the music is actually selected to be chilled all through out the day, even the evenings and nights, so that is why we do not turn up the tempo in the evening. And for the food part, we have to think of everyone, and there are always people who are vegetarians, so we design and select the meals so they can be enjoyed as many persons as possible. Nice that you stayed with us and do come and enjoy time with us again.

Good atmosphere, nice place. A bit far from town and restaurants, but the busconnection is reasonably good.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Excellent that you liked the atmosphere :) The buses are good enough to take one to the town centres for some local culinary tastes. Welcomed back anytime friend :)
