This review is based on expectations for a value hotel. Safe, clean, good location, friendly staff, workable internet at a very inexpensive rate. The room was pretty small but workable. Would stay there again.

I agree with the comments mentioning that its location is very good. It is really close to the center where you need to take the bus to Alhambra which is generally the reason of your visit to the area. But I was so unhappy about the staff and the pension, I arrived in the mittle of the night in the... More

We spent few nights in this pension last September in this very centric pension in Granada. The rooms was sufficiently spacious, we had a shared bathroom but it was very clean. The owners were very helpful and kind (I am not sure do they speak English since we were speaking Spanish). There is also a microwave to use. The bad... More

Noisy and dirty pension which I choose to visit with my parents based on the good score they have on booking.com. I am not sure how they get this score but it seems people set their standards low. The beds filled up all of the room. The bathroom is very small. By all modern and even Spanish standards this place... More

Compared to other cheaper Hostals we stayed in in Spain this was the worst. The room was meant for three but would be a small room even for two. There was barely enough room to take a shower and the bathroom stank. The bed sheets and furniture were old. The worst part was the noise coming from outside on the... More

This is a small, very cosy, "Granada-style" hostel. The staff is very friendly. They don't speak English, but that is none a big deal. Cleanliness is OK. Location is great 1 minute walk away from Puerta Real.

This pension is quite central in Granada. It's close to very nice place where you can eat great food for cheap. The pension is in an old building, rooms are small but with everything. The owners are super friendly and kind, it has been a pleasant stay

I stayed in this small hostel for two nights during my visit to Granada in September, it was really a nice surprise, a worm welcoming and helpful owner (although speaking only Spanish), the room was on the small scale but very clean and comfortable with a private tiny bathroom, but it was very clean and comfortable for me as a...

I really recommend this hostel if you're looking for a cheap, clean and quiet place close to the city centre. When I was there (in August), the surroundings of the hostel were not very popular, but I was told that during the academic year it is full of university students. I was definitely satisfied by the staying, nothing to criticize!... More
