“Little Marvel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Stayed here with couple of friends in May, 2012.
Positives:
- Goodness in the cozy atmosphere that the place has, an antidote to big Corporate hotels.
- Beautifully decorated room with lovely arched wooden ceiling.
- Excellent staff, exceptionally helpful, very friendly. Made this place a home away from home.
- Good breakfast spread, its a help yourself and clean after you eat concept, we loved it.
- Located is in the middle of the city, so perfect.
- Perfectly in sync with the nature of the city.
- Free wifi which worked very well.
- At a very reasonable price, added to the charm

Negatives-
- None

Would definitely come back and stay again, but this time for more than a couple of nights.

Room Tip: No lift, so if you can't pick up your luggage, ask for a lower floor.

We stayed for only one nite but was blown away by the superb service and hospitality of the staff. They are efficient and able to provide good recommendations for restaurants. Try Los Diamantes for a finger licking seafood tapas meal and paella. Everybody at the hostel gives u a broad smile and your requests are looked into with lightning speed.

The room decor is lovely though our room was very small. I had to hop across the bed to get to the other side of the room.

unlike other B&Bs, you are expected to wash the dishes after your breakfast.

This hostel is great! We had had a stressful day and had and just walked in and asked for a room. They luckily had one and calmed us down a bit and were absolutely amazing! The facilities are amazing! It feels like a home. This is the standard of a hotel not a hostel. I would recommend it to anyone as the ONLY place to stay in Granada!

Great location and really good price for a quaint but efficient room. We had a double room w/t bath located in the front of the hotel and it was perfectly clean and quiet.

There is no curfew and everyone is laid back and helpful. Also, the shared breakfast facilities offer many options to fill up in the morning. Two minor down sides we found were the coffee machine and the WIFI.

The first is a household coffee machine that is filled by the hosts (clients) and unfortunately, they don't always know how to measure quantities...
As for the WIFI, it only worked in the kitchen.

We'd go back in a heartbeat, for the price, the cleanliness and the quiet street.

This friendly home-like hostel made our stay in Granada especially comfortable on this last leg of our tour of Spain. Freddie, our host, was very kind, giving us a very helpful orientation to the city. Our studio suite, decorated tastefully with Ikea furnishings, was spacious and very clean. We enjoyed the continental breakfast in the common room and the chance to mingle with guests from the world over.. The only negative issue was the noise of the neighbors across the narrow street, which on a Friday night, continued to past 3:00 am.

A very quiet hostel, just a perfect place for a good nightś sleep. Freddie and the staff (Lena & Virgil) are excellent hosts, they go out of their way to help you out. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms and toilets are way better than other hostels. Only negative was the triple bunk beds, but they changed me to an empty lower bunk bed on the second night. A nice common area to meet up with other travelers and a convenient kitchen. Free internet access with wifi as well as a computer is very convenient for guests with smart phones.

My family of 4 stayed here in March. The apartment was great, separate sleeping areas was very nice. The only problem we had was a heater issue in the bathroom and it was quickly resolved. The staff was extremely helpful and their fluent English made communication very easy. The laundry service was very inexpensive and convenient - not to mention timely. We would recommend this place to anyone with a family!
