A beautiful place, very nice patio, the design of the rooms- very interesting. Everything one needs- provided. But what is the best about this place is the company- people who work at Makuto are extremely friendly and fun. It's them who create this fantastic atmosphere.

We had booked the double room, which is very spacious and has a private bathroom. Windows on three sites so very light (wooden shutters so you can sleep late if you like). Everything is accessible on foot. Staff are very friendly and give lots of advice what to see and do. We came by car and parked it 10-15 min... More

Makuto is my favourite hostel in Granada! Every time I go to Granada, this is where I stay. Centrally-located, amazing people, great food and hangout area. Took the FREE walking tour last time and loved it. I wish I could live at Makuto.

Really great experience! I stayed at Makuto during the summer 2013 and if I ever go back to Granada (which I'm sure I will do because its one of my favorite spots on earth!) I will definitely try to get a room at Makuto again before trying something else. Great location, great employees, great hostel environment. You will never regret... More

Such a friendly place - great if travelling solo or in a group. Relaxed vibe with lots of free space out the back for chilling with a beer or a book. The staff organise tours every night and there's usually a sing song out back. Nice location so you can walk around old town or over to Alhambra.

I had a great time in Granada during December 2013. I went there on my own and two nights finally ended up in 5 nights ;-) Its really like a small family there. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. I definitely like the great location and the tree-house. Will go there definitely again. Try it out!
