Noisy and dirty pension which I choose to visit with my parents based on the good score they have on booking.com. I am not sure how they get this score but it seems people set their standards low. The beds filled up all of the room. The bathroom is very small. By all modern and even Spanish standards this place... More

Compared to other cheaper Hostals we stayed in in Spain this was the worst. The room was meant for three but would be a small room even for two. There was barely enough room to take a shower and the bathroom stank. The bed sheets and furniture were old. The worst part was the noise coming from outside on the... More

This is a small, very cosy, "Granada-style" hostel. The staff is very friendly. They don't speak English, but that is none a big deal. Cleanliness is OK. Location is great 1 minute walk away from Puerta Real.

This pension is quite central in Granada. It's close to very nice place where you can eat great food for cheap. The pension is in an old building, rooms are small but with everything. The owners are super friendly and kind, it has been a pleasant stay

I stayed in this small hostel for two nights during my visit to Granada in September, it was really a nice surprise, a worm welcoming and helpful owner (although speaking only Spanish), the room was on the small scale but very clean and comfortable with a private tiny bathroom, but it was very clean and comfortable for me as a...

I really recommend this hostel if you're looking for a cheap, clean and quiet place close to the city centre. When I was there (in August), the surroundings of the hostel were not very popular, but I was told that during the academic year it is full of university students. I was definitely satisfied by the staying, nothing to criticize!... More

The hostel is conveniently located at the center (you have to make a few turns into some quieter alleys but not a safety concern!). It is around 15 mins away from the Cathedral and 25 mins away from the Alhambra. The hosts are friendly even though they don't speak English. I know some basic Spanish phrases so I was about...

15 euros for a single room with bath! (of course, low season price). Conveniently located at the center. A tiny but clean room with air-con heating. It does not have a kitchen but a microwave oven on the second floor. The only minus is the internet. I could not hardly connect for 3 days.

We stayed here for one week and although the owner and his wife don't speak English they really make an effort to help and advice you on your stay. The owner and his wife even managed to tell us of his love for granada football team. The rooms are cleaned everyday and the cleaning staff were always so friendly. Highly... More

We stayed in this hostel for a week and had a great time! The owners don't speak English, but with some basic Spanish and pointing at maps we got there anyway and they had some good tips about where to eat and what to see. The city centre is a few minutes walk away and there are many restaurants and... More
