The view from the terrace was amazing. There was also a decent sized kitchen and living room, though we didn't spend any time in the hostel, other than to sleep. Breakfast was only slices of white bread.
El Clandestino is a good choice for people who like a quiet space and are travelling with others. If I was traveling solo, I would probably look for a hostel more geared towards backpackers. Though not located right in the middle of the old city, the walk is only about 15-20 minutes. There are also bus stops in the neighborhood if you're taking a trip further away. The atmosphere is nice, with a great rooftop terrace and good kitchen. The staff were nice, though not outgoing.
Very affordable room, although basic and perhaps a little worn-out. Clean facilities, incl. kitchen, lovely outdoor terrace and indoor sitting area. Difficult at time to locate staff (no info as to how to get in touch with them, when no one's there). WiFi very slow in the evening till about 10 pm, thereafter it was fine. Nice location although wouldn't necessarily feel safe walking some of the nearby streets late in the evening but that's a problem in more parts of Granada. Overall a good stay.
Good: Lovely room with balcony and mini living room. Excellent location in Albaizin, friendly and knowledgable staff. Beaituful common area with terrace. Only bad thing: bath door broken.
