Excellent location, good breakfast, the rooms are ok. The staff are friendly and helpful and let us leave a bag while we took a trip for a couple of days. Although there's not a lot in terms of sound insulation in these old buildings, the hostal was quiet at night. Given the prices in Granada, if you don't have the...

I stayed there for one night in March and really enjoyed the place. The courtyard is very pretty and relaxing with hammocks. I stayed in the cheap room next to the kitchen and it wasn't noisy at all. The water pressure in the shower is pretty weak though. Staff is helpful and friendly. Location is perfect, close to everthing!

The Hostel El Momento is perfect! Its located near the Central Plaza. The Staff is more than friendly and very helpful. The 12 Beddorm is very huge and and the beds are comfortable. Hammocks and the green garden area makes your stay unforgetable. The atmosphere is very relaxed. I stayed there two times because i really liked it.

I picked this hostel based on internet and trip advisor reviews and I really enjoyed my stay here. It has a comfortable relaxed atmosphere but well organised. All the staff work as a team and are very helpful. As an older traveller, I was not looking for a party hostel, I had a private room and slept well here. It's...

Nice hostel, the staff go above & beyond to help out with anything you need. We had a private room with a bath, excellent value, clean & breakfast was always delicious. We had lunch there a couple of times too, the dishes had great flavour & were so reasonably priced. Lots of comfortable seating areas. Some things are getting a...

Unsure how this place reviews so well. I spent a night here a week ago and it was absolutely filthy. The dorms and lockers were gross, the bathroom and especially the shower wasn't serviced at all the two days I was there and the wifi was patchy at best. There is no real comfy place to hang out on a...

we stayed in one of the private rooms for a couple nights, and found the hostel to be clean and welcoming. A breakfast for $1 is offered which is great. The one thing we must say, we were surprised to see that there was no glass on the window in room 2. Not that's a big deal weather wise, but...

Thank you for your review and your comments on the cleanliness and the breakfasts. As this room does only have 1 large window,putting glass in it would also mean the room would need AC, the mosquito netting helps in the evening and at the same time allowing a breeze to enter the room.

We stayed at this Hostel for 3 nights and felt very comfortable thanks to the casual but still organized atmosphere. The location in granada is perfect, the staff was always there to answer questions, breakfast for 1$ had common size and you could refill your bottle with water for a fair price. You can also book tours there, the staff...

We can't really fault this hostel. It was clean, tidy, secure, central, easy to find... all over really awesome! Slept really well here in the biggest dorm. Security had a presence in the evenings when we came home late which was nice. There were enough showers and they were tidy. Obviously no hot water but we didn't find any hot...
