Property Description

Tropical House is much more than a hostel!

This project was created by Vida Tropical Association and is meant to be a melting pot for international backpackers of all ages, artist & interesting local persons who offer their services like yoga, massages, workshops and exhibitions.

Our aim was not just to create another hostel but to offer something special & go the extra mile for our guests. Some of our special features are:

* Urban Garden (our star is our own banana tree)
* Co Working Space
* Yoga & Meditation Room
* Art Exhibitions & Live Concerts
* Movie Room

We are also proud to offer you our unique double-size bunk beds (check it out on the pics) with a locker, reading light and shelve for each of our guests.

Overmore you will enjoy a spacious & fully equipped kitchen, several chilly common areas in two different patios (total size 200m2) designed by a famous german grafitti artist.

We will try to offer our guests an experience out of the typical “hostel-bubble” by integrating locals into the project & organizing weekly free island trips with the public transport! We do have fun day & night but its important for us not to be a party hostel in order to guarantee respectful and loving family vibes.

Further social activities organized by the hostel:

* Pub Crawls
* City Walking Tour
* Cheap Meals & Dinners

We also care about our planet. So we tried to use as much second hand furniture or even recycle drift wood as possible to decorate the house & spread some good vibes & values to the folks. Soon we will welcome our first art exposition! The topic? Let yourself surprise J


Due to its location directly at the main bus station of the island and in the vibrating center of the oldtown Tropical House is the perfect starting point to discover the whole island. Don’t miss out on discovering the island – you won´t regret it! In less than 50 minutes bus drive you can either enjoy the Dunes of Maspalomas, the impressive “Roque Nublo” Rock, the pine wood forests of Tamadaba or the waterfalls of “El Risco” village (more info on reception).

In walking distance you can find the famous “Columbus House”, the Centre of Modern Art CAAM, the Cathedral of Santa Ana, the shopping mile “Calle Mayor de Triana”, the theatre “Pérez Galdos” and countless wonderful streets without cars and full of historic colonial buildings, bars, restaurants, shops & pubs. Also the famous Canteras Beach is only 15min bus drive away.

If you are thinking about renting a car (25€ per day): the parking situation around the Tropical House is much better than in the area around Canteras Beach.

Ask for special offers if you are an artist and you think you can contribute something to improve the good vibes of our house

Here are some tips how to get to Tropical House:

Public Transport from the airport: Bus 60 runs from 06.15 am till 23.15 pm once or twice per hour. After 23.15 pm take bus 1 or 5. Exit at San Telmo station (underground). From there cross the square and walk up to Calle Buenos Aires for about 5 minutes to Tropical House. You’ll find on the right side a wooden door with a big white 22 on it.

Taxi: A taxi from the airport to Calle Buenos Aires 22 will cost approximately 30 to 35 Euros.

Public transport from the harbour: Take bus 12 to San Telmo station, cross the square and walk up Calle Buenos Aires for about 5 minutes.

By car: Parking can be a bit difficult in the city, but just a couple of minutes from the hostel are 24h free parking areas (Paseo Chil and Paseo San Antonio). Check google maps. Parking in Las Palmas is generally free from 8pm to 9 am and Saturdays from 2 pm on.

For any late arrivals after 11:30pm there is an extra charge, €5,00. Please, inform us in advance otherwise the reception would be closed.
If you are in front of our hostel please, do not ring our doorbell after midnight and call our reception mobile +34 604 111 576 instead.
Someone will open the door for you.
Safe travels!
We are looking forward to hosting you!

    Lovely place to stay, I felt really comfortable and relaxed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They gave me plenty of advice about where to visit around the Island and I even got to go climbing through meeting other guest's who were keen to share their adventures. The beds are also huge! By far the best hostel bed I've ever stayed in. Nice big kitchen and plenty of space to prepare/cook your meals. There are also many areas in the hostel to find some quiet time.

    I just had an amazing journey in Tropical. The staff is so friendly and always ready to help you out with everything. They organize activities for guests like Salsa and Yoga lessons in the meditation room. You can chill in the big and quiet garden outside, in the living room or in the rooftop. You have 6 big toilets with one shower each and all the beds are bigger then the usuals. Location is great, just a 3 min walk from San Telmo bus station, so you can take buses to anywhere in the island !✌🏻

    I instantly fell in love with this wonderful place! The staff is super nice, the whole hostel is super cozy and made with love. A big plus are the queen sized bunk beds! The kitchen is huge and always clean, but my favourite place to hang out was the urban garden full of plants and a big banana tree . I would always come back, my stay was just perfect.

    The atmosphere in the hostel was great, all the guests are in touch all the time and you're always in company if you feel so :) Rooms are spacious and well-equipped. There aren't many bathrooms but I never had problems at all with the accomodation in general. Very quiet the environment, 100% recommended
