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!

    Tropical house is an incredible building with many places to chill, relax, socialise & cook! I love the Belize project where they support a children’s playground (check out their top floor). Big 10/10 to their sister hostel La Ventana too, never felt more at home xxx thanks so much for everything!!

    The Tropical House is a really cool place. It is very well kept, the staff is super friendly and make you feel at home. I have been to many places before and I have to say that the atmosphere there makes you bond easily with the staff and the other guests more than any other place I have been.

    What a great hostel! The volunteers do everything to make you feel welcome and part of the Tropical family. They arrange hikes or dinners or other things to do together. The beds are huge and come with a little compartment at the head that you can lock, and there is a night lamp and electric outlet for charging phone.

    The staff really makes you feel welcome and takes you in like a family. A really cool detail was that they add you to a whatsapp group and send you messages. They even planned a full day hiking trip that you could join for no cost. The place is perfectly located right next to old town. The only thing I didn’t like was that the windows from the double room couldn’t be closed so you could hear every sound from the hall and everyone in the hall could hear you =no privacy if you travel as a couple!

    Don't let the location put you off i.e. not near beach...once inside this hostel it is a spacious, relaxed atmosphere. The staff are lovely and there are fun day trips planned. The beach is in walking distance (45 min) but if you want to explore island this is good choice as next to bus station.

    Everything was good in tropical house, specially the staff who made my trip even more awesome, I stayed there for 5 nights and the place was sparkling clean, the facility is old, but well taken care of. Vencient was the coolest among the staff, with allot of advices and sharing experiences. I felt like home 🙂 thanks all for everything and see you next trip 😉

    Very nice place and nice people overall. Don't forget to bring your earplugs though as you'll easily hear everything going on around you.

    Given the hostel is branding itself to be calm and serene with meditation opportunities etc, I think it’s very noisy and not really calm or restful at all. The sound travels and noise reaches dorms late as well as early. Also most showers were cold. It would be nice if owners would install proper water heaters for all those beds. It’s definitely under dimensioned at the moment and saying it’s becauae the house is full is a bad excuse. Fix the problem! However, beautiful house and lots of space.
