Property Description

Why Columbus?

We have the best location in the city! Tucked right in the centre of the old town in the capital of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The coolest rooftop hangout in town where you can sit back, relax and socialise with like minded travellers.

Columbus was the brainchild of 2 best mates from the UK.

Fresh out of University with heads full of fresh air, a trip to ‘The islands’ sparked an idea.

Like any good business plan, the idea was dreamed up on an island in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sun, friends and a few beers. (You get the picture.)

Having travelled around South East Asia, the Americas and multiple trips throughout Europe, it became clear that the key component for having fun when backpacking was the people that you met. The most unforgettable memories and adventures were made and shared with others.

Our concept is simple;

* Family, fun and good times.

We have been doing what we do now, for 3 years. If you want to become a part of our small island family, book below and we’ll see you there!



The other stuff;


We offer a unique experience to the modern day backpacker. Spaced over three floors our design conscious hostel allows you kick back, relax and enjoy the space with your new international buddies.


Industrial materials palate, creative vibe and functional installations make Columbus the place to be for many world wanderers.


Including an open plan kitchen and living/dining room and a rooftop terrace complete with cathedral views, BBQ and bar. We open ourselves up for you to have the most funfilled and comfortable time during your stay. All rooms are equipped with huge rucksack sized lockers and adequate space to organise and store all your belongings to create your own home from home.

Overall a really bad stay. Manager Ramón is a star, but its too big hostel with too many beds to otherwise be run by seemingly overworked volunteers. Its dirty and chaotic. Two of the dorms face the rooftop bar that is supposed to be open until 23, but was quite around midnight. Too many beds for facilities. Would Do well with a renovation. But i guess if you are only there for the party its alright. Good location.

Not recommended to stay. It’s very dirty, especially the bath facilities which are too small, have a mold and are definitely not enough for this amount of guests. The rooms are very small and get really stinky and warm. The kitchen area is not good cleaned either. The common areas are fine and the rooftop is very cool. The staff was friendly but is not well managed in general, so a lot is missing or not fixed. The Wi-Fi is good in general, but depends in what bed you’re sleeping in.
