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.

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.

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!

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

The dishes were dirty. The location is far away from any town centers. You need a car if you stay there.

Laid back hostel in good location close to windsurfing beach. Staff was great and very helpful and the private room was OK. Cute size of the outdoors pool and a lovely cat socialised with guests.. Free ear plugs for guests bothered by noise at night. Broken shower upstairs could need a fix. This place has charm.

The atmosphere in this hostel was really good, we liked to stay there! It`s a bit far away from everything, but still a nice area...But please put a new showercurtain in the bathroom downstairs and repair the cran of the shower upstairs. That`s why the cleanness is not that good in my comment. The rest was clean! The breakfast was good and the personal very friendly!

I liked it. I have already booked there for some friends. They will like it as well. Perfect location close to the airport, just few bus stops (change, 2 bus). The staff was very friendly. I recomend it.

Pretty nice hostel/villa,well organized,courteous staff,relaxed atmosphere,also festive in the evening,everything fine,maybe location could be better,but it depends on what you prefer to do,relax/chill out at the hostel in the evening or be in public in town,surfing or just lie on the beach at tourists spots..,its personal choice.. I would recommend for surfers(as there is good wind for that on wild beaches),nature lovers or any active people!

Our room was on the first floor and was very noisy, guests in the garden chatting and laughing loudly even after 11:00pm. The staff was very nice and offered good and cheap food every evening. The room was clean and comfortable, the door lock was a joke (not working at all). There was no hairdryer available. Location was between two little towns with no services around, just a life-saving bus stop. Very good value for money, recommended.

Had a room in the ground just beside the kitchen busy until 2am in the morning and very noisy. The window could not be locked possible for everybody to come in - not really safe.

The location was terrible but the atmosphere is great and the garden terrace is nice, it was very noisy though, I recommend getting earplugs if you want to get some sleep. Very cosy and very nice staff.

a really cool hostel. it was easy to conenct to others, people were always sitting together outside in the "living room". my dorm was next to it. so of course it was noisy from time to time, but i didn't mind. It wasn`t really loud like in a "party" hostel, just people sitting together talkin, laughing, playing guitar... and it has a nice shower and great breakfast.

Very nice hostel. The atmosphere was lovely, the volunteers where great, the cooking was good and very cheap. The place itself on the island isn’t the best but because of the hostel is great staying in is just as good and if you rent a car your on the highway in no time and you can see it all.

Awesome hostel, feels like home, extremely friendly atmosphere, welcoming staff, possibility to cook your own food or have dinner with everyone at a very low price, nice beaches nearby... The common spaces make it very easy to make new friends and share moments with other travellers. Everything you need for a perfectly relaxing holiday... :)

This was my first stay at a hostel, and it coulden't have been much better! The atmosphere was so nice and we actualy ended up spending most of the time at the hostel or with peoples from the hostel. I would definetly recommend it!! Nothing bad to say.
