Program Details

ATLAS is an Alternative Travel Local Association on the island of Gran Canaria. Our mission is to create an alternative to the unfair mass tourism industry, which brought little benefits for local people. We see travel as a way to promote cultural exchange, environmental awareness and a fair economy.
ATLAS is an important space and a reference for alternative culture in Las Palmas, as we provide a space for artists, associations, activists,and everybody wanting to share art, culture or knowledge. (Facebook: Asociación Atlas Gran Canaria)
All this is possible thanks to the arrival of travelers, whose contributions make it possible to maintain our space.
If you love the beach and outdoor sports this is the right spot for you! We are located just 5 minutes from 2 beaches, Las Canterras and el Confital. There are several surf spots for all levels. People also practice kayaking, snorkelling,

Activities & Shift

Maintainance work will be done mostly during the mornings. The schedule is flexible due to the nature of the work but it will never be more than 20 hours


NOTE THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOSTEL! As we are a cultural association respecting our neighbours is very important to us! We strictly respect quiet hours from 22:00 to 7:00. However, if you want to go out there are many bars, restaurants and clubs nearby.
