meet our team



hostel star & cat

Selma is our princess of the house. Thats the official story. But insiders know that she is the real boss of the hostel. In the morning you will find her doing her crazy dances, during the day she does her siesta and in the night she will watch you and listen secretly to the crazy stories you tell to other guests. If you want a discount, also ask her ๐Ÿ™‚

spoken languages: Miau!




Thomas is living on Gran Canaria since 2006. Normally you will see him attending his plants silently on the rooftop or checking out for Selma. He likes to be in the background but if you are not shy ask him for some info about the island and he will be your best source ๐Ÿ™‚ He spends his time surfing, climbing, biking or hiking around in the wonderful nature of Gran Canaria.

Spoken languages: german, spanish, english

Paul Ventana Azul Team



Paul is a dedicated surfer and very patient and good hearted manager of Ventana Azul. He is a very good source for surf forecasts! He originally comes from an island in the north of France and at the moment together with his young family he is living in a campervan on the northshore of Gran Canaria. Living the dream of a respectful beach bum ๐Ÿ™‚

Spoken languages: french, spanish, oxford-english




Raffaela is a true multitalent. Apart from helping us with the hostel she is a great photographer, artist and carpenter. She arrived on the island as a guest and personal friend of Thomas and it looks like she wont leave the island voluntarily anymore (like all of us). She loves to go snorkeling on Las Canteras Beach and if she is not busy with one of her projects she might take you for a dive.

spoken languages: german, spanish, english
