Always the best place to relax and enjoy the wonderful sun of Gran Canaria. Close to the lively Yumbo Centrum. Not so far from the dunas and playas of Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. Very friendly staff!

This was my first time visiting Gran Canaria and after narrowing down my choice of places to stay to about 5, I decided to give Basement Studios a shot based on the reviews and the "freedom" concept. I loved it! True - this isn't the Riu Palace, but it doesn't pretend to be and the concept is amazing and you...

First of all: If you´re below 40 yrs, you should not go here. It´s like being an exotic animal in a zoo-cage if you´re young. It actually feels a bit like being in a retirement home, except from the constant house-music for 12-18 hours a day, starting at 9 in the morning. The rooms are worn down, moldy and when...

A very friendly welcome on my arrival. I was shown around and everything was explained to me. Free safe and free heating/aircon was a bonus. The staff are very friendly but also very discreet. The included breakfasts were served on my terrace and were very nice. The room, although basic, was comfortable. The whole idea and ethos of The Basement...

When we arrived our room was rented out to the other side - we were given another which was spent. Agreed with Basement that first night (due to circumstances) were free of charge. But we never got the money

My second stay was even better than the first! You cannot fault the location just across the road from the Yumbo's bars and a minutes walk from others at Barbados complex. Facilities at the studios include UK tv for that one night when u are too exhausted to venture out! Oh fab breakfast too.

I stayed in the Basement Studios end January 2017 The staff is very good, looking after every little detail. The place is kept spotless. Every morning our breakfast was served on our own terrace. The place is completely geared up for a "sleazier" gay clientele,but it is very easy to ignore that and just use it as a very comfortable...

Our bungalow was old. They have recently painted it and have installed some IKEA furniture but the bedroom door could not be closed, the shower holder was constantly falling down and the screen filtered water into the bathroom so it was quickly soaked. The waiters are friendly in general, but for a couple of days the breakfast dishes stayed all...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Basement Studios is run by gay men for gay men and has multi-ligual staff which offers a relaxed yet stimulating holiday experience. We are located in Playa del Ingles and are directly opposite the world famous Yumbo Centre – you just can’t get closer to the gay nightlife, sex bars and restaurants.We aim to be different to other gay holiday resorts. At Basement Studios you have the opportunity to be naked and have fun wherever and whenever you want. We have carefully created an environment to maximise your cruising and sexual experience. We also pride ourselves on having no-attitude here – all gay guys are welcomed regardless of age, body size, fitness and background. Our only rule is that during the day you observe the dresscode of naked, jockstrap and swimwear only (no Burmuda shorts).The Complex has been recently renovated to a high standard ... more   less

“For direct access to the cruising area choose a room on the far side of the pool. For an elevated view of the pool and sun loungers choose a room on the bar side. ”
