    I had a great stay at Ratones de Biblioteca. Paula was very friendly and welcoming and even helped me get my rental car out of impoundment when it got towed for a parking violation. The space is warm and feels safe

    Wonderful oasis in the perfect part of La Laguna. Close to everything you need without being next to the busy shopping streets. Very accommodating host and great facilities. I did get a bit cold at night but as soon as I mentioned it, I had extra blankets and a heater! Wonderful place, would highly recommend.

    Paula is a friendly and helpful host. The hostel is so cosy with all the books and the decoration. We enjoyed our short stay here. Everything is clean and it is very peaceful and quiet in the room and the common rooms. The breakfast is super and you get fresh orange juice :) The terras on the roof is perfect to relax a bit.
