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.

Family is what we're about, we hold a free family dinner every night on our rooftop. Everybody gathers together to enjoy our home cooked food under the stars.

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.

    I only stayed for 1 night, but it seemed like a great place to be! They do a free dinner in the evening that brings everyone together. And I also believe they do pancakes in the morning, but I had to catch a flight so I missed them. The location is awesome, right in the old town. The vibe there seemed great, would definitely stay longer if I'm back in Gran Canaria

    The staff are just lovely at Columbus, very friendly and helpful. The facilities are simple, organized and easy to use and are kept impeccably clean. The location is near to transportation, points of interest and smack dab in the middle of the city activities on the weekends and festivals.

    Good place overall. Staff need to do more to stop noise in the late evening - the common area is next to the bedrooms and this can be loud in the nights. Free food in evening is good and a nice touch. They have events each night which is nice and free pancakes in the morning (probably need to get a process on this - no time slot which sometimes unhelpful if you plan an early start). I think the drinks at the rooftop bar need to be cheaper (you're not allowed to bring own beer)

    Very social hostel. Richie is so attentive and helpful! Nice interior design and lovely terrace. I very much preferred staying here in old town rather then by the beach. Also close to a lot of bus stops. They should mention when you book that the private rooms are in another block about 7 min walking further away. The bed in the private room was not very comfortable, and made noises every time I moved. It’s also not very sound proof between the rooms.

    One of the noisest hostel I've been in... I could hear any single noise. If you want to rest properly is not the ideal place. I was in the 12 bed room in the basement which had to entrances. All the people passed through like in a living room therefore, privacy was zero... Only one vending macchine and, was out of work. WiFi terrible, strong signal but really really unstable. Loosed connection very often. Positive: friendly staff, good location, cleaness
