“Affordable, comfortable and friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The hostel is clean and the staff were helpful.

Drinks were available all day and there were free guided tours. The kitchen was well equipped and there was even a computer room where you could lounge and chit chat.

The patio was pretty, albeit cold in winter. It should be really lovely if the weather was warmer!

The rooms were clean and well maintained. Even though it says 12 beds, because there were smaller rooms in each room, it worked out to be about 6 beds in each room, which was comfortable. There is plenty of room to put your luggage and the entire place felt safe and lovely.

Information given by the staff was really useful and they were helpful all the time.

Lovely hostel! Recommended if you are looking for an affordable and comfortable stay!

This backpacker hostel is definitely a good stay! The hostel is well equipped with a good kitchen, common room , free computer and very friendly staff! Their hostel room is rather clean and comfortable as the staff will clean the room everyday. Just a reminder, if you go during winter, remember to plug our card into the card holder machine right down below the switch next to the door in order to activate the heating system!

The place feels more like a hotel than a hostel. It's modern, clean, comfortable and spacious. We were assisted with our luggage upon arrival, given tea and immediately were taken care of by staff. All staff were helpful. They provided excellent tapas and drink recommendations, which we followed and didn't regret. The rooms are incredibly clean and nice. They have the most comfortable beds for a hostel.
For the traveler that is complaining about a this hostel - my advice is DONT STAY IN A HOSTEL. That is why there are stuffy sterile boring secluded HOTELS- for people that don't want to bothered. Hostels simply don't get any better than this.

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are incredibly comfortable so I don't think it matters wh...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

On the surface this hostel looked perfect. It's fairly new but fell short on comfort. Based on an Ottoman style of building it was very noisy. From music blaring in the courtyard all day and until 11:45, even our room wasn't a place to escape. Bar crawls meant it was noisy in the courtyard so the hostel' sown rules on noise levels was absurd. The rooms were roomy but cold, the duvets too cold despite us being charged for bedding!! We requested the remote control to heat our room via our heatpump/air conditioner but it didn't work at all. We asked a staff member to look into it but they failed to. The shower in our room stunk so we thought perhaps they're not cleaned properly as it was dirty and stained.

Excellent service, huge rooms with lots of luggage space, very clean, good common areas, lockers (take your own lock), good showers, good breakfast, cheap price. It has everything you want in a hostel and it provides good activities for you to do too.

Room Tip: If your dorm is split then take a bed in the one that has the door to the bathroom, you then know wh...

We stayed for three nights at Granada Inn and it was such a memorable stay.. The hostel is spic and span.. And the location is fantastic..and Granada is unbelievably very beautiful... I loved the city..lived the city.
The walking tours are amazing:) and Mathew is great...my frenz enjoyed the tapas tour with him.. The walking tour to the Sacromonte caves was great...

The staff is very helpful and maybe they should stop serving stale bread for breakfast...but never mind..

I had a 3 night stay in Granada Inn Backpackers and loved every moment of it. Right from the moment I stepped in, the reception staff greeted me and made me welcome. Check-in was a great detailed run through of the hostel facilities and then one of the staff took me to my dorm room.

Dorm room was amazing, even though it was a 10 bed dorm the "room" was in fact a little apartment of its own and so the 10 beds were separated into rooms giving a little privacy. Beds were comfy to sleep in and I was lucky enough to score the only double bed available in the room all for myself ;) This hostel had won numerous awards for being one of the cleanest hostels around and it was well deserving of its award.

The winner for this hostel though was the variety of activities it ran - walking tours, pub crawls, and a great Tapas crawl which I went on twice for the fun of it. It made for a great social atmosphere and way to meet other travellers.

I will most certainly be back again when I return to Spain in the hopefully so too distant future!
