Youth and ecofriendly hostel in downtown Las Palmas, in the neighbourhood of Vegueta. Vegueta is at the southern end of the modern city, but is the site of the original Spanish settlement - beautiful architecture, cobbled streets, the Catedral, and two outstanding museums, the Casa Colon (where Columbus may have stayed before crossing to America) and the Museo Canario for anthropologists.
The area is buzzing with bars and restaurants, and separated by a main road from the Triana quarter, pedestrianised and full of Art Nouveau. Las Canteras Beach (best urban beach of Europe) is 5.5 km away. There is a bus stop 3 minutes' walk away and main bus station (San Telmo) a walking distance.
