“Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Clean. Quiet. Safe. Cheap. Has pool and garden. Beds are comfy. Lockers for stuff. Bathrooms were clean. They have hammocks. This is not a party hostel. Recommend this for a cheap comfortable stay in Granada.

Located one block from the main plaza, and a couple of blocks from the market, this hostel offers a good place to chill.
There are nice hanging out areas around the hostel but could really do with more fans as it gets REALLY HOT during the day.

The rooms are pretty good with a reasonably modern design, comfortable beds, and we also had a private bathroom (shower head could be better though).

Their kitchen area is very good, with good space and useful utensils.

We paid $18 for the private room and overall had a good time.

I would come back here again.

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. We stayed here as our travelling partners had booked here. It is a great location, right next to the Central Park and eating areas. We had a private room near the Jacuzzi and it was simple and what we needed. The only thing that was a little frustrating was it was so hot in Granada and our little fan did not keep us cool. It would have been great to have a larger fan. I would stay here if we came back. If you like to cook there is a good sized kitchen too.

When we switched hostels during the festival, we found this one readily available. it does what it says as advertised, nothing more nothing less.

Hostel itself is ok. We had a private room which was ok, No window, but there was a fan and we had à private bathroom. There was a common kitchen, and a fridge with cold drinks. The staff did what needed to be done. The garden had a hammock, and more seats to chill and a pc with free (slow) internet and free wifi which turned out to be pretty good.

Have not had any reservations when arrived in Granada, so I've ended up in this hostel, which was nice overall. Granada is a really hot place so a fan sometimes is not enough, yet if you want A/C, stay in a hotel. Service and staff were good. located about 2 blocks away in parallel from Calle La Calzada, it is easy to find if you can read a map. Granada is not so big, you will find it.

Hostel itself is ok. We had a private room which was ok, but nothing more than that. No window, but there was a fan and we had à private bathroom. There was a kitchen, and a fridge with cold drinks. The personel was not really motivated, they did what they have to but no extra friendly words or happiness. The garden had a hammock, and more seats and a pc with free (slow) internet.
