Gram’s Place Hostel is located in the center of Historic Tampa Heights, which is a the city of Tampa’s oldest neighborhood.  We are located a little over two miles from downtown Tampa.  Our inn has often-times been referred to as a “Little bit of Amsterdam or Montreal” in a Key West setting, smack dab in the middle of an urban residential community.

You don’t need a car to get to Gram’s Place Hostel. We are just two blocks away from the City Bus Line #1 “Florida Ave” that takes you from/to downtown Tampa’s new Marion Transit City Bus Terminal.

This main bus station is only one mile away and from there you can get anywhere in the city or beyond: to Tampa’s Airport (city bus #30), The Greyhound Bus Station and our restored 1912 Union Train Station (Amtrak).
You can ride all day with the “One Day Unlimited HART-ride Pass” for only $3.75, on both the City Bus Line (HART-line) and the Historic Streetcar Line. Important: Have exact change ready! Bus operator does not carry change!

For online reservations and reservations over the phone, a valid Credit Card is required in the name of the person reserving the room or rooms, and the amount of the first night of the reservation must be deposited at time of booking. All remaining payments are to be made at the hostel on arrival (your credit card deposit guarantees your reservations).

Walk-ins are welcome although space is only guaranteed with a reservation.

We accept Master Card, Visa and Discover.

[box type=”info”] Cancellations are required to be accomplished no later than 7 Days prior to check-in, otherwise your first nights stay, or $50.00, whichever is greater, will be charged to the credit card that we have on file.[/box]

Check-in time for incoming guests is after 2:00 pm.

Incoming guests are welcome to show up at the inn a few hours earlier and hang out on our patio until check-in time.  We understand that sometimes the plane, bus or train arrives in Tampa a little earlier than our established check-in times.

Dormitory Room Guests – The latest that incoming guests, who are going into our dormitory rooms, can check-in is 11:00 pm, because it would be disruptive to the current guests in the dorm (those who may be sleeping). Please take this into consideration when booking your reservation with us.

Private Room Guests – The latest that incoming guests, who are going into our private rooms, can check-in is 11:00 pm (unless prearranged with our staff).

And, since we are a small family run business, we actually plan our day around arriving guests, so please give us a call approximately one hour before your arrival.  That way, we can ensure that someone will be at the gate to greet you!

Please contact the Innkeeper at (813) 221 – 0596 / to discuss late check-ins.

Check-out time for departing guests is not later than 11:00 am

There are no late check-outs permitted because our family of hosts has a job to do in preparing the newly vacated rooms for incoming guests.  Departing guests are welcome to hang out on our deck, after check-out time, because we understand that there may be a period of time until the bus, train or airplane departs.
