I was put in a room with 3 floor bunk beds on the 3 floor, to get there you need to be in a very good shape and a chance to break something is quite high, it was also very noisy, as the kitchen is close along with constantly working washing machine, there are no windows on the down floor so the air is stuffy. But when I said that im going to leave I was offered place in the upper room with private bathroom, great sea view and a discount. So better stay up, Internet works only on the down floor

Overall a great hostel - perfect location and the roof terrace is beautiful. Great atmosphere with staff and fellow travellers. Great way to meet new people. Downsides: the room I was in was too cramped and lacked ventilation.

Thanks for your positive commentary! All our rooms are certified by the Spanish Government and we invested a lot of money to assure a good ventilation of all rooms. We are a small hostel with a maximum of 24 persons with huge common areas. 18 people can easily sit on the sofas, hammocks of our roof top with sea view, another 8 in the kitchen. another 8 in the living room downstairs. The room you were staying in is quite small but we have curtains for privacy, a reading light ans shelf.

Good stuff: located on the ocean, friendly staff, nice rooftop bar, big comfortable beds. The not so good: room very small, located on the hallway so pretty noisy and no window, no lockable storage to put belongings in. Not even really reachable shelf to put bag on, just kept in on the floor of the room. Overall, I would recommend it and stay again because the goods make up for the bads!

Thanks for your feeback! We also offer dorms in the 1st and 2nd floor of the building with sea view and the sound of the ocean. We do have lockable storage. At 10 p.m. there is silence in the hostel so the noises can´t be that bad. Anyway its a hostel and not a "cementary" :-) We also do have reachable shelfs to put your stuff. You don´t have to put it on the floor. Allthough most of our guest prefer the floor (don´t ask me why). thanks again for your feedback and the chance to clarify this.

I only stayed for one night but I had a really good time. The people staying there were so friendly, and so was the staff. They have snorkelling equipment that you can grab for free, which is great. Also, the location is just perfect, right in front of the most popular beach in canarias.

Thanks so much for your positive feedback! Hope to see you longer next time! Its true the beach is literally IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE. Las Canteras Beach is perfect for surfing, diving, beach volleyball, bodyboard, Stand Up Paddle. Our staff or travelleres themselves and they are there for you to make the best of your stay and make you feel like home. Best wishes, Thomas (owner Ventana Azul)

Awesome hostel. Such a cool vibe. The rooftop is definitely the draw card, it's so cool. Awesome place to chill, watch people walk by, watch the surf. It's really like living at someone's gigantic house. There is a kitchen and a dining room, only a few bedrooms which are pretty squished in. The staff are awesome, just like your friends accept they have to work every now and then. Definitely recommend this place and would stay there again.
