It's a basic, quiet place with a pleasant rooftop terace. The centre is close about 15 min walk. A bit hard to find the place as the instructions are not given correctly. Enjoyed staying.


This hostel is charming and calm, even if it's a bit old. I had my own tiny room and i loved it! The kitchen and the terrasse are great, The breakfast is very basic, coffee, toasts with butter and jam. It's good for the price anyway! I recommend it.


this lovely and so sympathetic hostal is wonderful! the atmosphere is unique, the self-service kitchen facilities are a great service and it's close to the city centre. What's more, the view from the roof-deck is just fantastic!!! we had a very good stay! Thanks a lot!


Wonderful hostel. Clean rooms, friendly staff, great terrace with incredible view of Granada.


The office hours are weird and the desk attendant was not there by 9 am like he was supposed to be. The roof is nice and the kitchen is big, but this place is really hard to find.


I took this trip with my husband and we really enjoyed the stay. There are not many hostels with private double rooms for such a great price. The staff are helpful, the atmosphere is calm many even slightly romantic considering the beautiful terrace and view over the city. The walk to the center isn´t so long and we appreciated going back to a quiet place after a busy day out. Recommendation: Bring shower shoes! Overall, great experience and we would definitely stay here again!


Nice quiet place, if you wanted to be in a busy social place this is not for you, but perfect for what we wanted. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only problems were very small: distance to walk everywhere, old town, supermarkets made it a walking kind of experience.. Sometimes staff are not around, so keep the phone number with you for checking in just in case. There is no sign in the front of the hostel , follow the instructions, ring the bell, you'll be fine. Thanks


So charming! Great kitchen and terrace to hang out on.


Stayed in double room en-suite. Fantastic VFM, great kitchen/roof-top terrace - the kitchen is never locked up and breakfast is self-service at any time. Location is a bit out of the way but worth it if you want the terrace views across the city to the mountains. 15 minute walk to the top of the town centre, 30 minute power-walk to Alhambra, 30 mins to bus station. Stay here!


A little difficult to find, but worth the search. The roof terrase is great. Well equipped kitchen. A simple hostel with good basic services. Room and bathroom were clean a pleasant. Close to the center, but far enough so it's quiet. I definitely recommend it!


Excellent hostel, cheap, very friendly staff. In Granada is hard to go up with your baggage


Very nice place to stay. Staff is very helpful. The only problem is: Because the rooms are straight below the terraces it is very noisy.


The staff was cool, we received nice tips on local places to go out and the views from the terrace are nice. Though we think the place could be better taken care of, a basic fresh new painting and some minutes in daily cleaning would make a nice difference. You can see they tried to have it nice, but it seemed lately the hostel was not treated with much care. The breakfast was great. Ask locals when you are close to how to arrive, there are no indications on the street of building.
