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.

    These guys are amazing. Unfortunatly we couldn’t stay more than one night, but if that had been an option, we definitely would have stayed longer! The staff were the most helpful already from the moment we booked, and we give the highest of recommendations! As full time travelers, this felt like a home away from home, despite our short stay at Columbus. Lots and hugs and kisses from us

    After spending a bit over a week in Columbus hostel, it was difficult to leave. Everybody there is so friendly and makes you feel at home immediately. The facilities are great value for money and the hostel is kept exceptionally clean. The location of the hostel is great as it is situated in the beautiful old town of Las Palmas. I highly recommend tapas night on Thursdays which is only a couple of minutes walk from the hostel and has a really vibrant atmosphere. 10/10 exceeded all expectations

    Excellent hostel with a great location in the heart of Las Palmas old city. The rooftop terrace is super cozy with a great social atmosphere in the evenings. The rooms are well cleaned and the hostel offer most facilities needed for a backpacker.

    My third time at Columbus. Very good and price worthy hostel in the old town of Las Palmas. Near the San Telmo bus terminal. Friendly volunteer staff with a nice bar on the roof terrace. Weekends can be a bit noisy if you're staying at the rooms on the second floor. Otherwise very good. Always clean and good kitchen if you would like to cook.

    In the north of the island, right in the centre of the old town. The hostel was in a nice old building, and the staff were lovely. Some things to be aware of: there are three-bed high bunks in some rooms and anytime someone moves the whole three beds move; some rooms are right near the bar so you won't be sleeping early; there are only 2 toilets in the hostel, so be prepared to walk up and down flights of stairs to use them. The staff cook dinner on some nights which is nice.

    This hostel has a really great atmosphere and the volunteers and managers were really friendly. Had a great night at the tapas night on a Thursday! However, the beds were pretty uncomfortable, and the pillows were lumpy. There were no privacy curtains for the beds which would have been a pretty easy fix and I'd say aircon desperately needed in the bottom rooms.
