Property Description

Gram's Place Bed and Hostel is Tampa, Florida's only Hostel / Le Gite!

Gram's Place Bed and Hostel features completely private rooms with en suite baths, traditional hostel shared dorm rooms with shared baths, and "Semi-Private” Rooms which are still private, but without an en suite bath.

Check in times are typically between 2PM and 10PM.

All rooms are air conditioned. Our “Fast and Free” Wi-Fi covers the whole of the Gram’s Place property.

Enjoy good music, good people, good vibes, and good fun at Gram's Place. We are a musically themed hostel and it is not uncommon for there to be music playing somewhere on property, whether it be recorded music, live entertainment, or simply a spontaneous gathering of musicians.

One can pair one’s own playlist via Bluetooth to our outdoor sound system on the heated Jacuzzi / Spa patio deck while enjoying one’s favorite beverages beneath the tree canopy, watching the stars or hiding from the mid-day sun.

Two full kitchens are available to all of our guests to prepare one’s own or communal meals. Gram’s supplies the cookware, plates, and silverware, and you bring your own food!

Guest have long enjoyed our “Stairway to Heaven” pathways that ascend up and through the tree canopy, featuring platforms at varied levels through the tree canopies. The pathway eventually terminates at the rooftop platform in the trees that guests have affectionately named “The Crow’s Nest”. From The Crow’s Nest, one enjoys a 360 degree panoramic vista of our immediate Tampa Heights neighborhood including the nearby “Plymouth Playground” neighborhood park across the street. The Plymouth Playground features basketball courts, a picnic-ready green lawn, a baseball park, and a children’s playground for everyone’s use and enjoyment.

Arriving at the entrance gate you will see a sign that reads 'Mitakuye Oyasin', a Native American phrase which means 'We are all Related'. This spiritual consciousness recognizes and practices that everyone of our guests, friends, and acquaintances are interrelated and not just another traveling guest.

Our family-run Bed and Hostel, in continuous operation since Mark Holland founded Gram’s Place in 1991, has been a long-time destination for world travelers, business people, and folks from every walk of life. Gram’s Place welcomes folks from every spectrum, of every nation, of every culture, throughout the world who are like-minded in their being Respectful, Peaceful, and Tolerant of other’s cultures, lifestyles, and beliefs. Families, children, and often-times well-behaved pets are all welcome here at Gram’s Place. We cater to Business Professionals, Couples, LGBTQ, and Families with children, Artists, Musicians, Singers, Songwriters, Actors, Painters, and Poets, etc. from all corners of the world.

Gram’s Place Bed and Hostel is named in honor of Singer/Songwriter Gram Parsons (1946-1973).

Check in times are typically between 2PM and 10PM.

Great Find! Super cute hostel. Has great near by parking options for those who are driving in. Staff was great about setting up late check in for my private room. Was easy to follow the directions and made for a seamless stay. My spouse forgot her wedding band by the sink and the staff set it aside for us and we were able to return later and pick it up. Would definetly recommend and will stay again my next trip trough Tampa.

I booked an individual room for $100 a night. When I arrived, it turned to be a detached room built of some plywood, no heating, a toilet with a barn door right across the room for everyone to use, bar is also right there. Supposedly there was a shower and a restroom inside the house you can use until 10PM. I did not check. I left. Awful experience. Owner was nice, but what they are renting to people is below minimum sanitary requirements.
