Altavista del Teide Refuge consists of two buildings and is equipped with a first-aid room, dining room and kitchen. It has three dormitories with a total capacity for 54 people. The rooms are heated and beds are fully equipped with sheets and warm quilts, so you don't have to bring a sleeping bag. It has toilets and washbasins, without showers.

The original refuge was built in 1892 and Tenerife Island Council took over its running in 1950. It was completely renovated in 2007.
