We went to Granada on our last part of our trip, and we were so happy to find such a nice hostel. The room was extremely clean, and was cleaned every day. We got a private room for 2, and it included a private bathroom with shower. The shower was just as good as a shower back home and the... More

When I went to Granada I didn't have a place to stay but from word of mouth I heard about this hostel, I got there and the staff was really helpful and gave me a bed. The place is really organised and clean and it has all the facilities needed to cook. Although there were not many people staying I... More

The hostel has a great location, only 2 min walk away from the main (shopping) street that leads you to all the touristic attractions of the city. Alhambra is only a 10 min bus drive away. We were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist who immediately surprised us by taking a polaroid (what's in a name, right;)). We stayed in... More

We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom. The room was clean with a simple but functional furnishing, the bathroom was a bit worn-out but clean as well. We were not looking for a "hostel experience," but the hostel looked quite busy during our stay, with many common areas. The staff was helpful, and the hostel is very... More

I stayed in two hostels during my stay in granada. This one was more modern and had a great roof terrace. However there was never anyone to be seen so very difficult to meet people. I wasn't told about the common room downstairs until my checkout. Perhaps I would have met more travelers if so! However the other hostel was... More

We have been there just for one night but that was long enough to find out that it's probably best hostel in town. Nice, clean and 'traditional andalusian ' Ikea style;) would definitely recommend. Good value for money. Ps. We left our car few streets away free of charge

“We were on the top floor (3rd) which I think is the most modern looking. No lift (which is pretty normal in Spain) so if you have really heavy luggage maybe request a lower level.”
