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.

    Really good location and lively atmosphere with the rooftop bar. Kitchen was well equipped and rooms had lockers to safely store items. Close to bus stations so easy to get around only 15 mins from the beach! Only downside was there was very limited toilets and showers so could end up waiting a while to use.

    This central is perfectly located in the historic Vegueta area of Las Palmas, you're near to all of the historic sights. The hostel is exceptional! The decor, rooftop terrace, lounge are all expertly laid out so that you can relax/chill out. Everything was super clean, the reception staff all very friendly and the bar on the rooftop was a nice addition!

    My first solo-trip and it was amazing. Great hostel if you want to meet friends. My initial plan was to stay there for a few nights but ended up staying for two weeks (miss it already though). I have had such a good time at Columbus and can recommend the hostel to everyone

    Lovely staff that showed me around and made me feel welcome. 20 min bus ride from the airport then a walk. Nice church nearby. Bar upstairs for drinkers , people were respectful coming in the room when I got an early night. Recommend for a cheap stop on your way round the island.

    Decent hostel for long and short term stays. Good kitchen facilities and plenty of hangout areas. Volunteers were friendly, shout out to Brendan who was super helpful. Bathrooms leave much to be desired for - eg sink in the one by reception doesn't have hot water pipes and tap has been faulty for a while. Location is mediocre - in the old town but requires commuting to Las Palmas to get anywhere and no beach nearby. However, there are a few nice places around (rec La Vegueta de Colón)

    Nice location and very helpful staff! Great rooftop! But the bathroom situation is very bad. For all gustes there are only 4 showers and only two bathrooms that have to be shared. Maybe I was just unlucky but all the bathrooms and showers were not clean. And no hot water was left when I took a shower. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the great people but the room I have stayed in was too small for six people.
