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.


Activities Enthusiast
Gran Canaria is the island of activity. Things that you can get involved in include hiking, surfing, rock climbing, mountain biking, diving, paragliding and much more. Whatever you are looking for, we will help you find it.

    Second time here, great staff, great vibe, a few different staff from last time but all good. 1 staff member needs to learn how to acknowledge guests and smile or say hello... But otherwise perfect.

    My first time staying in this type of accomodation and I will be returning. The staff are super kind I asked to move beds during my stay and I was accommodated no problems. Great reccomendations of places to go in the local historic area. The nights spent on the terrace with everybody completed my stay. Special thanks to Gail.

    I'm a 25 yr old from Australia. I had an incredible time here and this hostel is class. The founders, Ben and Seb, have an infectious energy and commitment to make your stay memorable. Not only is the hostel located perfectly in the historic centre, it is very clean, spacious and has a stunning rooftop.

    Great place. Bunk beds and materials inside built by hand from the two founders, and the rest of the place has this authenticity. Very friendly staff. Bunk beds have a lot of head space above (even on the bottom bunk). Good lighting. Clean. Bathrooms and showers were spacious, functional and clean. Great place, very much worth the money!

    The hostel is hard to find as it is very poorly marked. There is no greater inscription anywhere. When you first arrive at a hostel, it is difficult to enter, as there is no bell and you do not know the code. Besides, I was not satisfied with the cleanliness. Especially in the morning, everything was very dirty. Considering how big the hostel is, it would be good to have more bathrooms.
