“Good choice for people looking just to sleep.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The hostel is located conveniently within a walking distance from all the attractions while still on a quiet side street. The Cathedral and the shopping streets are about 10 mins away and although it's possible to take a bus to Alhambra the walk isn't too long either (and you get to see the city at the same time). The double room was moderate with a double bed, desk and a wardrobe (plus a tv that we couldn't get to work) and it had it's own bathroom. It was clean but there was no hand soap. The room was rather cold at night as we weren't aware of any heating system. Our room was facing a small courtyard so there was no noise at all. Actually, the hostel itself was really quiet. They have wifi, but for some reason it wasn't working well. There's no kitchen and no breakfast, but there are some cafes and a mini market (Opencor) closeby. There's also no common room so it's hard to get to know any other people who are staying there. Not too impressed by the staff, we were just handed the key and shown to the room, without much talking. There are no brochures about any attractions and no free maps. They did't ask if we needed any help, advice or tips about the city... which has been normal in other hostels. All in all the hostel is good value for your money if you're looking for a calm place just to sleep.

It was located on a quiet back street which was about 10 minutes walk from main centre.

There were quite a few stairs to climb to our room.Our double room and en suite were very spacious and clean. The air con would only work during set times, but generally this wasn't a problem.

The staff were polite. Very little English was spoken, but then our Spanish wasn't great either, and we got by.

Good value for money.

Arroyo is like a small hotel, simple but nice. There is 24 hours reception and it is located in the center, near the Cathedral. I did not see any common-social area. Double room was nice, and bathroom big. Everything was extremly clean. Our room had TV and air conditioning, though we did not use it. I would raccomend this Hostel, good quality at a cheap price!

We stayed four days in this pension and I would definitely go back there. The furniture is old but it's clean. They have a beautiful terrace with a great view on the top, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Plus, it has a very convenient situation in the city.

  • Liked — the view and the staff
  • Disliked — the furniture
