Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is a small hostel set over a number of floors with balcony, roof terrace and free WIFI. The staff are trustworthy and arranged hostel evening event during my four nights, meal and film evenings. The feel of the hostel is towards a younger set although I am in my late 40's and three other where of similar age. The negatives although minor should be dealt with:

1. the six bed dorm had been changed into seven which did not work given the small size of the room.
2. noise from the common room can be a problem after midnight this could be solved by keeping the common room door closed, a simple door closer would fix this.
3. paper towels in the kitchen to assist with hand washing before food preparation.
4. lack of fridge space, could be resolved by changing the current fridge freezer for a double fridge.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The Big Fish Hostel is a great place to stay!
Very well located, 20 metres from Las Canteras beach and a 15 min walk from downtown Las Palmas.
Dorms are big and spacious, so are the living room and kitchen facilities.
Staff are helpful and friendly.
The terrace at the top has great views of Tenerife and you can even see Mount Teide!

It is a great place to stay whether you are a surfer, diver, trekker or a sailor.
Here you have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world who come to Gran Canaria for many different reasons but people who mainly want to have a good time and enjoy life!
I felt at home from the moment I walked in the door and I had the chance of meeting many nice people.

I would definitively recommend you to stay here as a starting or ending point for your holiday

best regards
