“Amazing and very special hostel”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I love this little hostel, hidden in the fascinating historical neighborhood of Albayzin: little streets, stairs, old white houses and flowers. The house where is the hostel is old too, it has a spectacular front view of Alhambra Palace, a nice terrace with a swimming pool, there is also a little tower with a private terrace. Staff members are lovely, very kind and pleased to help you, whatever you may need, especially they gave me good advices about what is interesting to do and see in Granada. My room was great and very clean. I definitely recommend this hostel to everyone

Most amazing hostel I have every stayed in, definitely more like a small hotel/BnB.
Whilst it was a little tricky to find, the staff, atmosphere and view of the Alhambra more than made up for this.
2 friends and I stayed in a 4bd private with shared bathroom.
Room was big and clean, bathrooms had really good showers.
Small pool, perfect for sun baking during the hot afternoon.

This had to be the best value for money place to stay in Granada. We stayed 4 days and wish we had longer. La Bomba has the most spectacular view of the Alhambra especially at night. We were welcomed like family by .... who went out of his way to give us all the information on Granada that we'd need for our stay. The room was large with plenty of space and the windows opened right up letting through a nice breeze. The kitchen is great and we really loved the outdoor area and pool after a long day trekking around the area. Once you get your bearings in the windy streets you realize the location is ideal. It's peaceful with a great view and lots of sun.
The hosts were the best we've met in Spain, very cool guys and girls, always smiling and friendly. They even run regular evening walking tours to see the best Views of the town. It's clear from the guest book that this is a special place. Recommend!!

We ended up here by chance after there was a problem with the room we booked at another hostel. I was extremely worried about where they might have been able to find us another room at short notice during Semana Santa, but I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. The hostel was clean, friendly, full of character and had a view of the Alhambra from our bedroom window. I'd highly recommend this hostel. Thanks to the excellent staff for being so welcoming and helpful.

Absolutely awesome! I was very impressed with this hostel. The staff was nice and very welcoming. One of the staff members took the time to completely explain the city to us. Two of the other staff members took us on a tour of the city. This was really nice of them, but I don't think I would recommend that unless you are into a rough hike. The facilities are great for the value. I stayed in a 4 bed room and the door opened out to the patio. The patio itself includes a lot of seating, a bed, and a pool (even though its quite small). The only negative would be that it is quite high in the city and the walk up is a little rough but it's worth it!

Room Tip: Get a room that opens onto the patio!

My mom and I stayed at Casa Bombo while visiting my brother in Granada. People of all ages and locations were staying and traveling in Spain. My mom and I had a private room with our own bathroom and it was extremely clean. Our window view was of the Alhambra and it was beautiful to wake up to. Casa Bombo also offered dorm style rooms and has an outdoor deck with seating to relax, drink mojitos, and enjoy the view. The employees were also extremely welcoming and fun and prepared breakfast and dinner every night, included in the hostel price. We did not want to leave this amazing place, as by the end of our 3 day stay we felt like we had made a new family. Some of our most enjoyable and memorable moments were made hanging out at the Casa Bombo, it has my highest recommendation if you are traveling through Granada.

Great place, lovely location and friendly staff.

We had a great night here and thoroughly enjoyed the company and helpfulness of the staff.
Great views of the Alhambra during the day, but the view really comes into its own at night time!
They have a nice little bar available if your a bit to lazy to go out to a bar after a day wandering the streets of the Albaycin district and are tired after climbing the hill!

Room Tip: The main bedroom with its own bathroom has an awesome view and a hot tub!
