Backyard Hostel
Ranked #17 of 74 Specialty Lodging in Granada
Reviewed July 5, 2013

the staff is really nice and caring we felt comfortable staying here and actually stayed longer than planned
the garden is cool for relaxing and they have a bar where you can meet cool people and have funny conversations or whatch tv
but its not really a party hostel so you dont have to be afraid of lying awake allnight because of loud music
in the evening they light up some tiki torches (?) in the garden and than it looks even more cosy
so if you are in town check it out

I stumbled upon this hostel in walking around town and for $6 a night in the dorm decided to stay. The owners and staff are so nice and accommodating and even took us out on the town for live music one night. The pool was great and the BBQ we had one night was delicious. The staff also cleans deep cleans the hostel each morning and keeps it clean all day. Unfortunately I thought the beds in the dorm were really uncomfortable (thinnest mattress I've ever slept on) and the open kitchen was missing some basic supplies. However, if you are looking for an affordable option close to the center of town with a good vibe, this is a nice choice with great people.

I spent 4 nights at this Hostel and I had a great experience, first is near the Parque central and all activities in Granada, you can find every tours and activities in the area, Owners are very cool and helpful they hang out with travelers with cerveza. Good vibe with a pool, good music, BBQ,and tropical animal !! TV, free coffee, the place is clean, and much more. You couldn't find a better price at 6 $ for comfortable dorm. Now it's your turn having such a good time in Granada !!!

If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay in the center of Granada, this is a good option. at a great price. comfortable bed, and a backyard with cool people, swimming pool, bar,... and a tuned guitar.

This hostel is great. At $5 a night for a dormitory bed I couldn't find a better price in Granada. There are also some private rooms but I stayed in the dorm. There are large lockboxes for securing anything you want to lock up.

There are two owners who both speak English, Spanish and French. The place is incredibly clean with a full time cleaning woman who does a great job of keeping the place clean.

There's a bar, music, and a pool that was being redone when I was there but is apparently going to be filled and opened soon.

A nighttime security guard is there all night although the location itself seemed safe, just a few blocks from the central square and La Calzada, the center of nighttime bars and restaurants.

Definitely worth checking out if you're going to spend some time in Granada.

Cheap, nice, just 2 blocks from the Parque Central. Free coffee in the morning and a great garden (with rabbits, parrots and a monkey!) are a bonus, and the swimming pool is still in construction. It's clean and there is a good equiped kitchen.
