Get to know Lanzarote (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is a small, volcanic island, in the Canary Islands, and is also apart of Spain. The island is most popular with British packaged holiday-goers, which means there is no shortage of holiday resorts and hotels, most which can be found along the beachfront.

There are, however, some budget options, including a few hostels in Lanzarote, which are quite modern and spacious. Lanzarote hostels provide all the usual hostel facilities, such as access to internet or Wi-Fi (not all hostels provide free Wi-Fi, so it may be worth checking at time of booking), a communal kitchen, book exchange, information and maps of the island (including the latest information about events and local attractions), and hot showers. Some Lanzarote hostels offer rooms with air conditioning, while others only have electric fans. If traveling on a tight budget, it is worth staying in a Lanzarote hostel with a communal kitchen, as restaurants can be quite expensive. Most Lanzarote hostels are within a few minutes' walk from a shop or supermarket, as well as restaurants, bars, clubs (most with nightly entertainment and drink specials), and of course the beachfront.

The native language of the island is Spanish, however English and German are widely spoken. Lanzarote hostel staff, and staff working in the tourist industry, generally speak a good level of English.

There are many good walks and hikes for all levels. Hiking and walking trails are well signposted and cover a range of different types of terrain, from beach and coastal walks to volcanic, hilly walks along lava fields. Local buses run regularly around the island, including to and from the Timanfaya National Park (the volcanic park where the lava fields can be found). Snorkeling, canoeing, windsurfing, surfing, diving, and sunbathing are also popular activities on the island.
