    This is not a hostel, it's the experience. This place is an absolute black hole sucking you in and not letting you go. The most adorable staff ever. The feeling of being a part of the place from the moment you arrive. The reasonable owners keeping everything in a good shape. I spent two nights in their tent, absolutely great. Dorm room for my third night brought me three heavy snorers but well, hostel's life :D Guys you are great, I'll see you soon for more cabbage stew :D

    I woul definitely recommend the hostel to travellers who want to share their time with others, have fun and enjoy lovely evenings under the stars in Tenerife. I spent lovely 4 days in the hostel during which I met great people, we had dinners together (organised by the hostel); the staff was amazing, always super helpful and ready to give suggestions where to go and what to do :))) thank you, guys! I loved it and I will be back there when in Tenerife.

    This is not a hostel, this is pura vida y buena onda. Stay away from here if you don’t wanna know lovely people, eat delicious home cooked meals, have deep conversations whilst sharing music or beer, simply if you don’t wanna make the most out of your time in the north. Amazing place. Seriously. It felt like home since the first 2 minutes. Convenient location close to both seaside and anaga mountains, but whatever you go here for the great positive energy not for the rational stuff! Grazie!!!

    I love Lagarto! Atmosphere-wise it was one of my best hostel experiences. The location has it pros and cons: it’s totally non-touristic (pro) but takes a while to reach if you depend on public transportation (con). I really enjoyed my stay, meeting other travellers, having amazing dinners, taking yoga classes in the morning and exploring the area with other guests. All the staff members were great. The small number of bathrooms caused some queues, but otherwise the facilities were good. Superb!

    The place is beautiful, both the building and the surroundings, perhaps a bit far if you are not driving. We slept at the tent and it was amazing, so comfortable and silent. The crew was very concerned about our confort. I wish I had more time to spend there.

    The first worker we encountered, a guy with longer hair, was incredibly helpful. We didn't even ask for recommendations, and he recommended what turned out to be our favourite restaurant on the island: Altagay! Other than that, the place is alright. The crepes are good. I saw the staff cleaning every day, but the showers and bathrooms just didn't look clean. The location calls for a car.

    Staff is lovely. The ratings for this are NOT accurate. OK for a backpacker who need a bed.nothing more. It’s in the middle of no where, at least a 20 min drive from anything so u need car. U have to spend €€€ on taxis. Rooms and sheets are old. Felt very unsafe in the area. Front door is left open all night with no1 at desk. They make you dinner if you pay which is nice to hang w different people. Hostel for ALL AGES. There were elderly and babies around too. Spend more € and stay elsewhere.
