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.

    I absolutely loved Columbus Roof Top Hostel. I booked a night but have been staying for a month.The staff is friendly and hosted fun events to get out and enjoy Gran Canaria together like volleyball tournaments, electronic afternoon, barbecues and karaoke night. There’s a kitchen, a common area with ping pong, Ukeleles and guitars to play. CRH also has a terrace and bar area open from time to time. It’s a great place to relax on a warm afternoon or have a beer. Great hostel to discover the city!

    One of my favorite hostels so far! I came as a guest and left as part of a big international family. Great location, situated right in the hearth of the old town, bus stops, grocery stores, bar and local restaurants are walking distance, 15 minutes to the beach by bus. My rooms was spacious and clean, the kitchen well stored and an open space rooftop with a BAR!!! The staff is just best: welcoming, friendly, attentive and funny, I felt home the moment I walked in. Will definitely be back!!!

    From the facilities and the rooftop bar, to the managers and the volunteers, my stay here was fantastic. The staff were welcoming from the first minute and the dorms and common areas were clean and tidy. There was a WhatsApp group chat including volunteers and guests where events were organised and everybody bonds together - a very creative and cool idea. The rooftop bar (friends, drinks, music) is awesome! If you’re thinking of going to Las Palmas, I definitely recommend this hostel! :)

    Amazing hostel with the best vibes you can find in Las Palmas! The staff and volunteers are amazing and they will go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and at home. They organize many activities and really create the best experience. The hostel has a big living room, equipped kitchen and a beautiful rooftop with a bar. The rooms are fair for the price. You will have an amazing stay, and the city is incredible, very lively with many young people.
