We stayed here for 2 nights a few days ago and on the first night my friend got mugged close by. When we asked for help at the hostel they were very unhelpful and I'm pretty the man was drunk. The second day it became apparent they had bed bugs in one of our beds so when we approached them... More

We stepped into the Bearded Monkey not really knowing what to expect. It was recommended by other backpackers we met in Isla Ometepe. We were pleasantly surprised. Just a couple of blocks from the main Square so shopping and the sites are close. The courtyard and Hammocks were awesome along with Fransisco the Bartender . We hung out and they... More

Great hostal. Laid back, clean, friendly people and beautiful common area with plants and rabbits. Free wifi and great water pressure for shower. If u want to do a tour ask for mauricio he is the best. Very professional, entertaining, and knowledgeable about the area.

This is the highest rated hostel in Granada and is recommended in all the guide books. The courtyard has a relaxed, Spanish feel about it, as does the rest of Granada which is very similar to Seville, Spain. It nice enough as a place to put your bags down, relax in the hammocks and explore Granada on foot. But it... More

We stayed in one of the spacious doubles that left a bit to be desired however for the price was adequate .Theres a lovely courtyard through the reception with interesting hammocks . the staff were real friendly too. Probably not for everyone but a hostel with character.

Stayed here for a couple nights with friends I met traveling. The bunk area was HOT. Extremely hot. The showers and sinks were located in the back. They were moderately clean. My mattress (top bunk) started to slip down and I started to fall into the bunk below in the middle of the night. It was slightly absurd, I had... More

Budget hostel with a lot of flaws. Hot rooms, broken facilities everywhere, poor internet, staff is loud in the early morning and evening with bar music, light from the common space lit up the dorm making it hard to sleep. Overall it does not deserve to be in a guidebook, there are better places to stay in Granada that also... More

Ye the rooms are cheap, it's very chilled out and it has an alright courtyard, but as far as I can tell so do most places in Grenada. We did the island tour, as recommended by other travellers and it was a total rip off! $20 for a glorified boat journey, the owners son was our your guide. While he... More
