Walkers are loving the Albergue Montes de Anaga
The Montes de Anaga Hostel, managed by the Cabildo through the public company Ideco, last year housed a total of 3,060 people of about 20 nationalities that generat-ed 4,935 overnight stays in the period.
The Spanish lead the ranking of nationalities, with 1,452 clients, followed by French (356), Germans (291) and Ukrainians who, with 129 lodged, outnumber the Russians (92). The clients of the hostel come from the five continents and have come from countries as far away as Japan, the United States, Canada, Argentina, Australia and Belarus, among others.
Last December was the month that registered the highest number of nationalities among clients, including New Zealanders, Czechs, Bosnians, Israelites, Dutch and Poles.
“It is good news to be able to make these occupational data public, because it confirms that this type of accommodation has an interesting demand between alternative tourism with very diverse interests, among which are mountain athletes and hikers,” said Minister of Culture, Sports, Youth and Education Council, Concepción Rivero, who added that the “Anaga hostel is a proposal available to all people who want to know in depth about Biosphere Reserve or simply spend the night in an environment unique, close to nature. Walkers are loving the Albergue Montes de Anaga”.
The Montes de Anaga Hostel has a capacity for 40 people distributed in nine rooms for two, four or six people. Tourists, students, walkers or simply lovers of sports and nature are the main users of the facility, which is also open to organised groups.
The building is equipped with parking, bar-cafeteria, free Wi-Fi and an electric car recharge space. In addition, the installation is fully adapted for people with reduced mobility.
The Montes de Anaga Lodge, located in the village of El Bailadero, is in an ideal place to explore the trails of the Anaga Rural Park, declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 2015.
The hostel is the perfect starting point to know the spectacular landscapes and the corners that Anaga hides, spaces that go far beyond a beautiful postcard: they are the result of a perfect combination of geological formations, diversity of flora and fauna and the contact with the people of the hamlets.
