I may have only spent there 2 nights but what a place that was! Best for everything: location, staff&volunteers, food, drinks at the outdoor bar, relaxing, chill out areas, tree house, music and that awesome Vibe, which cannot be replicated! Very sociable place, with really quirky and cool people. Best new age hippie travel paradise ;-) Definitely coming back! "Makuto... More

Makuto is probably the best hostel in Granada. Stay here if you are looking for a great ambience in the narrow streets of medieval quarter Albaicin. This was already my second stay here, and I hope to come back soon! This time, with my girlfriend, we tried the beautiful, mediterranean-style double-bed suite (breakfast included). Walls are a bit thin, but... More

I have had such a great experience staying in this hostel. Location is perfect being in the Albaycin area which is the best area of Granada. The entire area feels like a small town and has a great ambience to it. All of the major spots are within walking distance and all things needed such as shops, bars and viewing... More

Ok so this is a bit of a mix. I first found this hostel by chance while staying in Granada in April 2014. Stayed for a week, left for Cordoba then missed it so much I came back for another week. After a few months I decided to return again in November. This hostel is, in my honest opinion, the... More

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at - no contest. My friend and I planned 1-2 nights in Granada but fell in love with Makuto, its staff and Granada and ended up adding multiple extra nights to our stay. The place is fantastic, the common area is great and has a really chill atmosphere, the daily dinners... More

I had such a great time here. The people were great, the kitchen was wonderful, the tree house and the room that everyone lounged in was so wonderful and relaxing. The tour that they give of the gypsy area is wonderful.

This is super chilled out hostel with lovely people and an awesome atmosphere! They make great sangria and delicious meals for dinner which you can buy for a cheap price! Jam sessions in the chil out room are the norm! I couldn't leave the place, I only intended on staying a couple of days and ended up there for almost... More

Before arriving to Granada, and after reading about Makuto I was guessing a very nice place to spend a couple on nights and to get to know a bit of Granada. As I am getting into to the place I had one of the most welcoming receptions that I ever experienced in a hostel! The staff is amazingly nice and... More

Lovely hostel, up the hill in Granada, near the Alhambra and the gypsy caves. Nicely decorated, comfy beds (Although some in the cheapest dorm were hard for me to get in and out of cos I am tall). Nice court yard and bar and free walking tour. The thing that really made this place though is just how lovely everyone... More

One of the best hostels I´ve been to, everything is cozy and welcoming, and then to top it off, you have what Granada has to offer. Recommend the guided tour to see the unique surroundings of the hostel. If you like jazz music, head to Bohemia bar at Plaza de Lomo, good tapas at Espejos, Europa, and many more I... More
