Welcome to our new friendly laid-back hostel in Plaza del Duque. If you're looking for something a little more comfortable and relaxed than a party hostel, then we're the place for you!

La Tortuga Hostel opened in 2015 and is in a prime location not far from El Duque beach (which boasts some of the best sunsets of the whole island) and close to the pretty village of La Caleta and Playa de Los Hippies. The famous tourist areas of Tenerife, Las Americas, and Costa Adeje, are easily accessible by bus, bike, or even walking. There is a large Hiperdino supermarket just around the corner and there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby if you wish to go out in the evening. If you want to buy some typical product or some souvenir, the market of Costa Adeje is 3 minutes walk from the hostel and runs every Thursday and Saturday.

We are a legal hostel, proudly part of Hostelling International and Red Canarias de Albergues de Juventud. We offer shared and private accommodation. The house has a communal kitchen with a separate dining area and a bright, spacious lounge with tv at your disposal. Our peaceful outdoor space has a garden with sun loungers, a small pool, a lovely covered terrace, and a bbq area.

Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the excursions offered surfing, snorkeling, diving, paragliding, canyoning, climbing, hiking, whale watching- and nightlife lovers will welcome the bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, all within walking distance.

Our international staff will do everything to welcome you in Tenerife in the best way possible and make you well looked after, advising on things to do according to your tastes. We are waiting for you!
