My husband and I spent 4 nights in this nice place and that is why I would like to give my review, in order to see it improving!
The rooms were really nice and big enough for us, with two good fans and wifi. The staff was really friendly and gave us many tips to visit Granada and the surroundings.There was free water too, many flyers with tips, books and a couch with a TV, DVD and many movies to watch.
There were only two problems. We love to cook and the kitchen was really dirty unfortunately. And there was not enough utensils to cook properly. There was no fork and knife to eat and some more things were missing. We could solve this problem with our stuff but its not right if the hostel offers a kitchen. We've been to many hostels with really good kitchens, so we know that even with the bad travelers it is possible to keep rules and a clean place. Another unpleasant thing was that someone, probably another traveler, just changed our food, which was in the fridge, form one closed recipient to another. We think he/she wanted to use the recipient we were using. The problem was that our food was left on the fridge without any cover. Maybe there should be written on the walls that people can not touch what do not belong to them. This is definitely not cool!
The other problem was that there was almost no water in the sink, which was hard to do the toiletry. If there is a bathroom it mus have enough water for everybody.
We would come back but it would be perfect cook with more pleasure next time!
