Property Description

Gram's Place Bed and Hostel is Tampa, Florida's only Hostel / Le Gite!

Gram's Place Bed and Hostel features completely private rooms with en suite baths, traditional hostel shared dorm rooms with shared baths, and "Semi-Private” Rooms which are still private, but without an en suite bath.

Check in times are typically between 2PM and 9PM.

All rooms feature Air Conditioning, Heat, Cable, and HDMI-ready Flat Screen Televisions. Our “Fast and Free” Wi-Fi covers the whole of the Gram’s Place property.

Enjoy good music, good people, good vibes, and good fun at Gram's Place. We are a musically themed hostel and it is not uncommon for there to be music playing somewhere on property, whether it be recorded music, live entertainment, or simply a spontaneous gathering of musicians.

One can pair one’s own playlist via Bluetooth to our outdoor sound system on the heated Jacuzzi / Spa patio deck while enjoying one’s favorite beverages beneath the tree canopy, watching the stars or hiding from the mid-day sun.

Two full kitchens are available to all of our guests to prepare one’s own or communal meals. Gram’s supplies the cookware, plates, and silverware, and you bring your own food!

Guest have long enjoyed our “Stairway to Heaven” pathways that ascend up and through the tree canopy, featuring platforms at varied levels through the tree canopies. The pathway eventually terminates at the rooftop platform in the trees that guests have affectionately named “The Crow’s Nest”. From The Crow’s Nest, one enjoys a 360 degree panoramic vista of our immediate Tampa Heights neighborhood including the nearby “Plymouth Playground” neighborhood park across the street. The Plymouth Playground features basketball courts, a picnic-ready green lawn, a baseball park, and a children’s playground for everyone’s use and enjoyment.

Arriving at the entrance gate you will see a sign that reads 'Mitakuye Oyasin', a Native American phrase which means 'We are all Related'. This spiritual consciousness recognizes and practices that everyone of our guests, friends, and acquaintances are interrelated and not just another traveling guest.

    We had a great stay at Gram's. It was a perfect base for us to explore Tampa. Very close to Armature Works and the river front.

    Richard is super friendly. My room was a semi-private room which means my shower and toilet was not attached to my room. I enjoyed it for a place to rest overnight and meet new people. Overall, you get what you pay for.

    I usually stay at hotels when I come to Florida but I decided to try a hostel route on my latest visit. On the outside, Grams Place may appear strange, but once inside you felt like you were at home. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. I booked a private room which was clean and refreshed. The community kitchen was appreciated and I definitely helped myself to breakfast on the house. Looking forward to staying again in the future!

    I enjoyed the atmosphere and everyone was pretty friwndly. Not as accommodating as hoped. We travel with our dog cause it stresses her out when we do leave home with family. The breakfast was good everyone cooked for themselves, and are responsible for their lunch and dinner. It was set up cute and funny but I will never forget. They also advertise that their centered on music which rings people together from all cultures. About the only music playing was when my other half and his friend played

    The owner was extremely polite and friendly, the hostel itself was full of personality and life. But a motion activated light in my room kept turning itself on at random, and my roommates complained of bed bugs, my legs are covered in bug bites from the place, but I think one of my bunkmates had fleas.
