The cleaningness of the bedrooms and bedding. The staff was ever so friendly. It's so quiet there in low season. I fall asleep listening to the waves every night. The swimming pool is amazing. Kitchen facilities that you can't fault.

Good place with windsurfing shops nearby
The common areas are extremely spacious and sparkling. The rooms can be a bit tight because of the number of beds they try to fit in there (5 bunks). I received great service, although the ladies at the desk did not really have any suggestions on food for the nearby area. However, my only roommate who was a Hungarian lady complained to me about their service (she had a last minute dilemma), so I'm not sure whether to trust her stories. The 4 euros for linens is ok; they are clean and so is the room. All the facilities are pretty much in excellent shape, but just don't expect to book windsurfing here despite the name; they don't do that here, or at least not anymore. The location is somewhat remote; it's in a town off the highway but getting to the hostel will take some work or walk if you did not rent a car (if you did, plenty of parking space no worries--I even practiced/learned how to drive manual here! on my own) but you trade that for the peace, quiet, and seaside. Wifi is pretty good! All in all, even though you can surely find hostels cheaper in the main city Las Palmas, I think this is a recommendable place for travelers like me who enjoy the countryside and tranquility.

very good but hard to get around without car
Very satisfied. Only bad thing I can think of is that there were too few outlets in the dorm bedrooms.

great for windsurfers and lovers of surf
I loved it because the Price Is Right I had the use of a kitchen and I could listen to the surf all night long. Almost all the other guests were hardcore windsurfers. Good people
