we just checked out of Pension Castil after a 4 night stay. It is very centrally located and easy to get to from the main bus station (take the S1 or S2 bus and transfer to LAC-bus. Get off at Peurta Real). The Realejo, Albaicin, Alhambra are all easily walkable and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping just around... More

We stayed for a week and a half and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Not only were the owners super helpful in anything we could need, but the location is perfect for sightseeing all of Granada. This is certainly a place I would recommend to anyone that is traveling to Granada.

For me had all the things that I look for in a hotel of this grading – friendly and helpful staff, good location, comfort & cleanliness and value for money. The owner Eva (as other reviews have stated) is quite a character, she is very eager to help and has an infectious smile. We stayed during Semana Santa and we... More

I have come to stay at the Pension Castil through a workaway program for 1 and a half weeks. I get to work with Eva (the landlord) every day (painting and refreshing other apartments.) I have to say that this has been one of the greatest experiences I've had. I spend a lot of time in the Hostel. My bed... More

I stayed in a shared bed room and it was so enjoyable. the owner is very nice and funny. She is a memorable lively person. The hostel is small, quiet, and clean and just about as central as can be. Sometimes in the afternoon an accordion player would play beneath us. I made quick friends with my roommates and had... More

This hostel is a great choice. In the heart of the historical Granada, I could visit the most important places of Granada only by walking. Besides, the owner, Eva is a great persone and she does her best to satisfy her guests.

I stayed at Pensión Castil for two nights in mid-April while visiting Granada, and I would happily stay there again! The lady who owns the pensión was warm, friendly and informative. When I arrived she gave me a map and showed me everything I needed to see during my stay in Granada. The pensión is also located right in the... More

The people who run the place are very nice and the price, 15 euro per bed, make this a great alternative to a hostel. The rooms, however, are below basic. The beds are little more than cots. There is no heat or AC, a problem when it's in the mid-30's (f) in mid-April (I don't normally expect AC in budget... More

Hostal castil is a One Star hotel. No more - no less. You get no breakfast, no flatscreen tv, no spacious private bathroom. But you get an easy, cosy, cheap and clean place to sleep.
