I loved Backpacker Al-Katre! The accommodations was great, the staff were amazing (very friendly and welcoming), they were great in providing suggestions and information for exploring Cordoba. It was clean and well maintained (shared space, room, kitchen, main area, etc). The location is perfect, super close to La Mezquita, Calle de las Flores, Puente Romano, Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos...

Al Katre is a very pretty hostel. The attention paid to design and decoration gives the place a much more sophisticated feel than average. I stayed in a two-bed dorm and had the place to myself so it was a very good deal. The room was a bit chilly, even with the heater on, but it was far colder than...

The hostel is centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the Mezquita. The place is clean and has a certain charm to it with the courtyard and rooftop. However, the attitude of the staff make me give an average review to the place. We arrived early and just wanted to drop our bags, but the receptionist was not happy...

Backpacker Al-Katre was great! It is a small, quaint hostel with a cute terrace. It is a bit on the old side but didn't make a difference to us. Overall a clean hostel, sheets are provided and you can rent towels at a cost. We enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go back.

I stayed here for one night while traveling through Spain. The location could not be beat and I found it to be very clean. I ended up being in a room by myself. It was very quiet and quite a bit of interesting people. I did not have a problem with the wifi. One night cost 16 euros, which was...

Really liked this place, location can't be beaten. Nice rooms, common areas and rooftop bar. It's got a great boho vibe and the manager is a nice lady. A couple of little maintenance issues like a wobbly toilet seat and shower heads that shoot out in funny directions. Not the cheapest hotel either. Overall an excellent place in one of...

This is a pretty beautiful hostel near the mosque. If you wanna have a good accessibility and low price, this will be a proper choice. Location: 2-3 min walk to the east side of the mezquita. There are mini mart and hammam nearby. The only major dissatisfaction here was a weak wi-fi. You have to get out of the room...

This hostel is literally located next to the Mezquita, the famous mosque-cathedral of Cordoba. It's a nice place with a patio and nice decor. I was in a six-bed dorm, where each bed had its own wall-plug. The internet in my room was quite poor though. The washrooms are impeccably clean, large and spacious (unlike most hostel washrooms), although there...
