Signs such as the one above are everywhere in the hostel, keeping in with their eco approach. It makes you really think how much water we're using! This hostel is in a very nice location, an old part of Las Palmas - Vegueta. It's full of old squares, small streets and museums. It's also close to the city center with its busy shopping streets. The staff was also always very nice and helpful. The mattress were super comfortable and good size. Everything in the hostel is new, clean and nicely decorated.
On a down side, the common areas are quite small. The kitchen is tiny, it's more like a kitchenette, with no kettle or oven only 3 cooking hobs.The dining/communal area contains only 5 tables and one sofa which simply wasn't enough for the amount of people staying. Also the space between the bunk bed was rather small and could get crowded. There are only ceiling lights in each room, no reading light. Which means if you came in late you either had to switch on the main light and risk waking up others or try to find your way around in dark. It's true that the beds have curtains you can close but that's the case only for the lower bunks.
Also, during our visit the hostel wasn't exactly quiet. The walls are rather thin and you can hear people from next room as if there were in yours. There are no signs anywhere about keeping quiet after certain hours and no rules regarding alcohol consumption. People were coming back after night out at 2am-3am and disturbing others. This is not great especially considering the fact that there were families with small children staying there as well. The hostel should decide who is their target group and apply rules accordingly.
