Property Description

Welcome to our new friendly laid-back hostel in Plaza del Duque. If you're looking for something a little more comfortable and relaxed than a party hostel, then we're the place for you!

La Tortuga Hostel opened in 2015 and is in a prime location not far from El Duque beach (which boasts some of the best sunsets of the whole island) and close to the pretty village of La Caleta and Playa de Los Hippies. The famous tourist areas of Tenerife, Las Americas and Costa Adeje, are easily accessible by bus, bike or even walking. There is a large Hiperdino supermarket just around the corner and there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby if you wish to go out in the evening. If you want to buy some typical product or some souvenir, the market of Costa Adeje is 3 minutes walk from the hostel and runs every Thursday and Saturday.

We are a legal hostel, proudly part of Hostelling International and Red Canarias de Albergues de Juventud. We offer shared and private accommodation, which includes an “all you can eat” generous and varied breakfast.

The house has a communal kitchen with a separate dining area and a bright, spacious lounge with tv at your disposal.
Our peaceful outdoor space has a garden with sun loungers, a small pool, a lovely covered terrace and a bbq area which hosts our famous Wednesday barbecue nights.

Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the excursions offered – surfing, snorkelling, diving, paragliding, canyoning, climbing, hiking, whale watching- and nightlife lovers will welcome the bars, restaurants and nightclubs, all within walking distance.

Our international staff will do everything to welcome you in Tenerife in the best way possible and make you well looked after, advising on things to do according to your tastes. We are waiting for you!

    Staff were always really helpful and offered advice on where to go & they allowed me to borrow their snorkel for a day. Free brekkie was great, poached eggs, toast, cereals & coffee. Wifi was great too as I was doing some work on and off and it never played up. Great stay, would return!

    The hostel is placed in an elegant residential area close to Las Americas, which is very touristic, but around the area there are a lot of wild and authenthic spots ( I particularly loved La Caleta and Hippie’s beach!). The lovely receptionst gave me a lot of excellent tips and helped me to plan my days in the island, plus all the information that I needed at the check in. Abundant breakfast, comfy beds, nice atmosphere… I loved this hostel and´ will come back, thanks a lot for the great stay!

    I stayed here for 5 days. In the dorm next to reception/dinning areas which where everybody gathers during the day. This is not a party hostel but it definitely has a vibrant atmosphere and staff ensures the hostel is dead quiet after 11pm. Also, staff are very helpful in recommending places to visit on your own or as part of an excursion. Breakfast was good and the fresh pancakes were a bonus! I will definitely be coming back here again!

    Well run hostel with helpful staff and a chilled out vibe and nice rooms. Mix of cool people from all over the world. Two nice pools and free Yoga classes. Although not in the centre of a town the guests do go into Costa Adeje 2/3 nights a week which is easily accessible by foot or taxi. Really nice neighbourhood and great views down to the sea. When approaching the hostel best to walk through the nice residential area- avoid the area near the motorway for safety as that felt a bit isolated.

    Very nice hostel, good value for money. The swimming pool is great and they have very good breakfast (pancakes, meat & cheese, different kinds of juice). They also offer nice bikes and tours from the hostel. The volunteers are also very nice, I did a hike together with one of them. Hostel is also clean and safe. The only improvement could be the beds, to put curtains for a bit more privacy.

    Very Good

    I didn't really feel the vibe of this hostel too much. I guess facilities are good, but didn't make up for the stressful atmosphere. It is impossible to find a quiet place there, especially in the evenings, but nobody really seems to care as staff and guests are a very homogeneous group of young people wanting activities and socializing all the time. Also WiFi didn't work in the rooms. Plus, Costa Adeje is tourist hell, which isn't the hostel's fault, but might attract a certain crowd.
