“great memories!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

The place is good located, very close to the main avenida, supermarket and has an amazing terrace and view. The staff is very helpful, even with unusual situation ;) in the hostel there is a kitchen with self-service during breakfast, the place is always clean and nice, there is a living room with a computer and tv, wifi everywhere. Definately reccomendable, great place, love to be here!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was a great hostel!! But be aware that the actual building is somewhat hidden and not in the best area. If you are looking for a great deal and do not mind walking about 20 minutes to the city center...or a very cheap cab ride then this place is great. Right when we arrived the receptionist mapped out where to go for good shopping and good food, it was very helpful. The staff speaks some english but if you stay here you should be able to communicate at least a little bit spanish. All in all it was a great weekend and the hostel was perfect for our time in Granada! Buenos viajes!

Room Tip: there's no air conditioning so make sure to ask for a fan. also we had a private room with four...

I arrived unannounced and they bent over backwards to accommodate me even though they were really busy. Great staff! Lovely terrace and free internet and a great little place to stay in Granada. I would totally stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

Albeit difficult to find, once you get there it is certainly worth it. Friendly and uber helpful staff welcome you by introducing you to all the other guests on the roof top terrace that has panoramic views across the city and offer you a mojito to help get settled. They also point you in the right direction for the tapas trails (which is a brilliant experience). Rooms are basic but furnished in a tasteful modern style.

The atmosphere is really nice.
People are nice.
Large kitchen, nice common places. The terrace is wonderful to get the sun and relax ! with a wonderful view on Grenade.
The room are really nice, but you hear quite a lot the floor: it is an old building (that's why I loved it).

  • Liked — The terrace and view over the town
  • Disliked — Doors are quite thin
