This hostel is a little tricky to find but worth it if you want to be in the heart of old Granada. The hostel is full of friendly travellers, nice staff and quirky rooms. I was in the room next to the terrace outside, noisy at night always so bring earplugs. Enjoy your stay.

A friend and I stayed here. Before booking, I emailed a question about where the wifi was available and staff actually went around the hostel checking connectivity for me. The 7-person dorm is a bit crowded (we'd never seen a 4-level bunk before!) and got a bit hot at night, but fans are provided for upper bunks.

This popular hostel attracts a tremendous mix of travelers. It is a great place to meet new people. The high bunk beds (think 4-5 levels of beds!) are surprisingly ideal for sleeping. It's very easy to get a full night's rest when you are high above it all. Staff was very gracious and kind, particularly the front desk staff. Some... More

I don't know if everyone would love a place like this but i thought it enveloped the essence of Granada. This is a beautiful quiet circular hostel which is also very social. They have a bunch of tables, chairs, hammocks and a little tree house in the centre of the hostel right next to the bar. The decor is hippy... More

Was a nice place. A bit hippy-ish. But a useful kitchen, sufficient space, nice staff and volunteers, and working facilities. For the price and location, I have no complaints. It is not fancy by most measures, but it has enough power plugs, clean facilities, and hangout spaces to cover your basics. There is midnight quiet down time which you need... More

An amazingly relaxed hostel, with great staff, affordable rooms and great vibes. Having dinner available every night is a nice touch for a small hostel, great little Bar with nice cheap drinks too. Cannot recommend enough as I had a truly fantastic time at makuto.

I came to Granada on a whim and on advice that it was a cool place. I was hungry tired and grumpy when I arrived and had a noisy family in my room the first night, I'm far from a hippy and generally dislike positive vibes I don't trust them. I was quite convinced I would leave the next day... More
