Liked: Well, long established house. Friendly and most helpful staff. A clean, Spotless house with a good, sound client base. Beside everything, beaches for swimming, sunbathing and surfing - cafe/bars, shops transport and so-on and just a ten minute taxi ride from Tenerife, South Airport. This was my second time to stay at Casa Grande and I loves every minute of my stay So, I will be back there again very soon.

Disliked: There Is Nothing I Dislike About This House.

Liked: It was very close to the beach and was in a safe location. It was nice to have access to free wifi, even though it didn't reach the upper rooms.

Disliked: The free breakfast was essentially just bread with some butter or jam, nothing too special. One of the girls who worked there was very friendly and helpful but the guy who worked there did not seem to care about my questions or bother to answer them.

23 January 2013 Marcus would recommend this property

Liked: All of the staff are really great, and the place has a good vibe with backpackers, surfers and kitesurfers of all ages from all over the world. The Casa is kept very clean and the front door to the small walking street in front of the reception is locked with a keycode. There are lockers in the rooms too. Upstairs has a patio for suntanning or drinks from the small bar on some weekend days. There is a cafe/bar right across the street where both staff and hostel guests can mingle. The hostel is not right on the beach but only a few steps away from it as well as from the restaurants lining the beachwalk. Bus stop is nearby for trips to other parts of the island. El Medano is a pretty quiant little town with fishingboats floating in the bay with a lot of wind- and kite-surfing action in the bay on windy days (which is almost always). This hostel is in a great location to all the action in El Medano but for pumping nightlife you will need to get out to explore the bigger tourist towns. For beachlife it is great for watersports as well as suntanning and swimming at the nearby Playa Tejita which is easily walkable but is a bit of a hike across the lower areas of the Montana Roja.

Disliked: The street outside can be a bit noisy at night for light sleepers, but you came here to (kite-/wind-)surf, not sleep, right?

Liked: Nice hostel with an excellent location right in the town center with lots of facilities nearby, bus stops, supermarkets, restaurants as well as beaches. Also close to the airport. Plenty shower/bathroom so one never had to wait too long.

Disliked: Some of the showers either didn't have curtains or they were too short so there always seemed to be water on the bathroom floor.

Liked: good area near clean, safe beaches. Laid back interesting mix of ages and nationalities. I felt myself and my property were safe at all times even when I wasn't watching it.

Disliked: Not enough toilets for fully booked hostel in the morning. Lack of hot water in the morning. Noisy from Spanish late nighters in bars below. Not a big enough kitchen area could do with swapping for the larger unused common room. Not big enough cofee maker for everybody in the morning.

Liked: I've seldomly been in such a clean and nice hostel! It's so close to nice beaches and has even a sunbathing terrace and free breakfast in the nice, tiny kitchen. I really recommend it!

Disliked: The shower basin is a bit tiny, so it was nearly unpossible to not flood the bathroom while taking a shower, but this is nothing to worry about :)

Liked: Equally the best hostel Atmosphere I have experienced, Friendly staff, Great location, Everything clean, Comfy beds, Once a month there is an al fresco disco in a quarry 30 mins walk away with light shows, camp fire and a relaxed hippy psychedelic atmosphere. The Internet PCs are super fast and so is the available WiFi. Cheap local buses are available to most popular places on the island. there are some great activites to enjoy nearby but I will let you discover them for yourselves.

Disliked: Showers not hot 24hrs(this is not such an issue in tenerife where climate is hot all year round) and shower rooms tend to flood. WiFi does not reach all floors and corners of the building. I am being picky because this hostel is near to perfection.

Liked: Most things are new, so beds etc are OK.

Disliked: Location is perfect in center of El Médano, but forget about sleeping because all the bars are located in the small streets around the hostel. Don't bother to book 4 bed dorm - you will be suggested to move to the 8 bed dorm because "there are not so many people so it gives you more space". Common rooms maybe cleaned once in a while, but are never tidy. For a pretty new hostel, roof terrace are dilapidated.

Liked: This place is fantastic! Gloria and Rodrigo are some of the most genuine people you will ever meet. They will go out of their way to help you with anything. The hostel itself is very nice. It has everything you need and is very clean. The location is great, right in the center of town, close to supermarkets and the bus stop and a walk away from awesome windsurfing, the beautiful Playa La Tejita and landmark Montaña Roja. You can catch the buses relatively easily to other parts of the island.

Disliked: Visnupriya left no negative feedback.
