Property Description

Why Columbus?

We have the best location in the city! Tucked right in the centre of the old town in the capital of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The coolest rooftop hangout in town where you can sit back, relax and socialise with like minded travellers.

Columbus was the brainchild of 2 best mates from the UK.

Fresh out of University with heads full of fresh air, a trip to ‘The islands’ sparked an idea.

Like any good business plan, the idea was dreamed up on an island in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sun, friends and a few beers. (You get the picture.)

Having travelled around South East Asia, the Americas and multiple trips throughout Europe, it became clear that the key component for having fun when backpacking was the people that you met. The most unforgettable memories and adventures were made and shared with others.

Our concept is simple;

* Family, fun and good times.

We have been doing what we do now, for 3 years. If you want to become a part of our small island family, book below and we’ll see you there!

The other stuff;

We offer a unique experience to the modern day backpacker. Spaced over three floors our design conscious hostel allows you kick back, relax and enjoy the space with your new international buddies.

Industrial materials palate, creative vibe and functional installations make Columbus the place to be for many world wanderers.

Including an open plan kitchen and living/dining room and a rooftop terrace complete with cathedral views, BBQ and bar. We open ourselves up for you to have the most funfilled and comfortable time during your stay. All rooms are equipped with huge rucksack sized lockers and adequate space to organise and store all your belongings to create your own home from home.

    Everything you want in a hostel! Clean, spacious rooms and roof terrace. Friendly, helpful staff with chilled atmosphere. Perfect location for seeing the beautiful old city of Vegueta where you can explore the tapas bars, museums and feel transported back into history by colonial architecture. The hostel itself is in a stunning building, completely renovated but with its charming features still preserved. Great access to beaches and rest of the island with San Telmo bus station just 2 mins away

    What an amazing place to stay in Las Palmas - located in a quieter part of the old town, but only a few minutes walk from major publc transportation. The staff were incredibly friendly, outgoing, personable, and helpful. I traveled alone to Las Palmas over the holidays and left Gran Canaria with at least twenty new contacts and friends - all met through or at the hostel. This hostel made my trip an absolute highlight of 2020. Thanks gang!

    The place was undergoing some renovations, which kind of spoil the experience. If you have rooftop room, bring earplugs. Otherwise it's a charming colonial house.

    The hostel is in a charming building in the middle of the old town Vegueta. The rooftop is beautiful, really great spot to chill and make new friends. Unfortunately due to the current situation there are more staff members than guest in the building and they didn’t make any effort to make us feel welcomed. It was more like a ‘why are you guys here disturbing our usual life’ kinda vibe. Really sad as the hostel has all the potential.

    For that amount of money you wouldn't expect the Grand Hotel, for sure. Yet, the sheets are not even adult size... With few exceptions, staff is disrespectful and seems unaware of the place they are living in
