Pension San Joaquin
Ranked #110 of 139 Specialty Lodging in Granada
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

This hostel is centrally located and excellent value for money at 20 euro per person per night. The rooms are large and clean- bathroom was a little cramped though. The staff don't speak much English but are helpful despite this, free wi-fi is available in the lobby but not in the rooms. Overall I felt the hostel was good, but not great. Next time I might try something a little pricier that wasn't lacking that "je ne sais quois".

Very nice pension, super and very helpful staff (shame that their English is not slightly better). Location spot on, in the middle of the city, very close to main tourist attractions and quiet at night which is great when you want to rest after intensive day. Rooms very basic but clean and spacious. Great value for money.

Stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was a great little place to base yourself in Granada, with a twin room costing €20 you do not expect much. But the building is simply wonderful with superb mosaics on the wall. The room was clean, with a nice hot powerful shower and bed was comfortable. Yes it is a little bit tired but nothing wrong and at the price an absolute bargain. Location is great just away from a main street but in the middle of the city. Wouldn't hesitate recommending this to anyone. I will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back on the second floor

From the outside the place looks very ordinary, but don't be put off - step through the doorway and you're in the courtyard of a lovely 16th century building with very helpful staff.

The rooms are basic but clean and the position is good - within walking distance of the town centre. Our double room was a good size though the bathroom was on the small side. If you're planning to spend a lot of time in your room then don't stay here - but in that case why are you coming to Granada anyway?

We will definitely be staying here in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can be noisy.

The fact that the pension was not right in the center of the tourist area (but ca 10 min walk away) turned out a real asset. Situated in a narrow 19th century street, the place + the people are extremely welcoming. A wonderful several hundred year-old house, originally in the country, now the city has grown (tight) around it. Marvelous tile work + patios lead to simple rooms with french windows + an admittedly very simple but ok bath with hot water all the time. I have stayed in budget accommodations before, but never with such style. An added benefit: you live right where Granadians live & don't pay tourist proces, get a tostada + coffee for 2 Euro at the corner diner & generous tapas at night.

Room Tip: A room away from the street will get you better sleep. Late night + AM tourists in the street can be...

The hostel in a very good position, centric, not too noisy, well connected by bus and train. The building is a very nice tipical house with internal courtyard and a small terrace.
The room quality was quite poor, lots of damp patches on the walls, broken furniture and a really small toilet. Anyway beds were quite comfortable and the shower was very good.

In the end, I spent approx 30eu per night so I expected something like this but I wouldn't go back there if the price is higher.
