When we arrived early in the morning, Ana opened the door for us, let us put our bags in our room and eat breakfast. She was such a wonderful host. The hostel was close to quite a few attractions so it was good walking distance to things around the city. Had to take a cab to the hostel and free public bus back, but Ana was a huge help. Rooms were cute and small and shared a bathroom with others, but never got too busy. Would recommend!

Private but welcoming atmosphere. It is homie because of the family living there, which makes it really clean and quiet, resulting in a great night sleep. They have a comfy lounging area with a nice big flat screen tv, which was great. Breakfast is good, and the owner is super friendly. People looking for a party place should look elsewhere, and those looking for a comfy stay should stay here.


There is a bit of a language barrier if you do not speak Spanish with some of the workers, but overall this hostel was great. Highly recommend... and Granada is beautiful.


It is pretty far from train station, but this hostel is good in clean, facility, service(every room has an air conditioner!!)


The staff is great! The rooms are very clean!


I will go back ! Ana awesome host, she was very courteous & respectful to everybody. She was very clear on directions & easy to follow. this made for a great experience & makes you to want to come back ! Keep up the excellent service going & I will see you in the future !


The price for a private twin room is good. But the wifi does not work up to the top floor so we had to go downstairs to use it


I met a lot of great people in this hostel. There's a kitchen and a nice common room. They don't have lockers for you to store your stuff.


I've expected more from this hostel. the location is good, but the bathroom was small and didn't look like it was well cleaned. Also I didn't expect to have to make my bed as I arrived, I mean to deliver the sheets at the end is ok, but to make your own bed when you arrive, I don't think it's nice.

The cleaning staff works from 11:00 to 14:00 everyday, to keep the hostel clean and to make the beds of the private rooms. The sheets are delivered only to the guests who stay in shared rooms just to make sure that they will be the ones who will use these sheets. It is just a hygiene measure.


Good location, staff were friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. Wifi wasn't strong in the rooms but it worked enough for our needs. There was almost no atmosphere in the hostel but we spent most of our time out in the town anyway.


Super helpful/accommodating staff, basic but really clean, more like a hotel than hostel but this was ok for us. 20 min walk to Alhambra and 5mins to arab quarter, located in a lively area.


Very nice staff and one of them was speaking french. The staff was really helpfull. Nice place to stay.


Nice place to stay


Good location, pretty noisy with kids screaming during the day (when we tried having a siesta) and is situated above a restaurant so noisy until 2am. Nice rooms and facilities


Very good. Thanks to all the staff of this very good house.

The staff was really nice, the location is very near and perfect, and it was really feels like home! Highly reccomended!


Very friendly and helpful staff (especially the blond one). Perfect location to explore Granada. Small rooms, but you get what you pay.


An exceptional rating for an exceptional hostel. Everynow and then you stumble over a hostel that ´has got it right´ and the the Barbieri Granada certainly has that: incomparable location a short walk from most of the majors, excellent attentive staff, good on-board facilities and clean clean clean. An excellent stay in a magical city. Can´t recommend the Barbieri (or Granada come to that) too highly . . . .


Overpriced. Location is ok, a bit commercial. Staff are unfriendly. Theycharge 2€ to keep your luggage for the day, and another 5€ if you don'tcheck out sharply at 10am. Not welcoming feeling.


Nothing special about the place. Adequate for a night or two. Not bad just not memorable.
