Absolutely what I was looking and hoping for. I had the best time because it was tucked away in a quaint community, away from hustle and bustle, and was so peaceful. The staff were more than friendly and helpful, and were fun to talk with. Very spacious with a beautiful sitting area out front with a great view. Awesome walks close by all around the area. I am planning to come back!

Of all the five hostels I stayed during my time in Spain this is the one worth mentioning for all the right reasons. A beautiful, clean, homely and welcoming guest house. What a joy to stay there. Axel, the manager was so helpful on our arrival and spent all the time with us we needed to settle in and ask questions. The place is spotless and has all amenities you need. There are beautiful hikes around and the city of Granada is a bus ride away. I will return here! thank you.

Was great, terrific location up in the mountains, was really relaxing and I was able to do a bit of hiking whilst I was there. Great break from staying in cities!

Great place to stay, walking tracks, small village & relaxing atmosphere
The town has narrow streets so beware if your car is very wide. The owner seemed awesome and could speak at least Spanish, German and English. Awesome facilities: nice kitchen, patio, etc. Maybe could do with another bathroom. He sells food cheaply in the hostel. You can enjoy nice drives round there.
The host is great and super helpful. The place is super clean and it has the most amazing view of the mountains. The hostel is located in a little village called Quentar, super cute and cozy! We had a great and relaxing time away from touristing :)
The minute I walked into this hostel I immediately fell in love! it was a true pleasure staying at Fundalucia. The atmosphere was very friendly and warm. Staff and guests cooked together and hung out by the pool. I immediately got to know the people sating at the hostel and we spent every night drinking tea and laughing until late. The bed were very comfortable, the pool was nice and the garden + sun deck just perfect. The scenery with the mountains was breathtaking. I will definitely come back!
Perfect place if you want to chill out, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. The place is fully equipped with a kitchen and items you can buy but I would recommend grocery shop in Granada before you go! If you do the lake hike when you start out on the road don't turn right before the bend onto a tiny dirt track! You will get lost! Wait till you see a red dot and then 'veer' right onto a medium sized dirt track :)
Stayed there twice now, it's still a great place to relax and converse with the hosts. They hold great chats and are always up for a hike. We also rented the kayaks while we were there and it was one of the nicest expierences i've had.
Like all comments, it's hard to find, our taxi didn't even have a clue. They really need to at least put a sign on the door. Is more of an apartment block, times when there are no staff in the building, but we loved it. Hang out on the terrace, no party atmosphere, really chilled. Paid for a private with ensuit, gave us no ensuit, but after a bit of convincing they gave us the appropriate refund. Would stay again.
best hostel i've been, they made the place feel so warn i didn't want to leave, the mountain view is spectacular If you want to rest from your travels this is the place for you but if you want to hike it's also the place, the lake is gorgeous.
Loved our stay here axel is a legend. Highly recommended checking it out
Do NOT book this hostel if you only have a few days to see Granada. Fundalucia is located in the village of Quentar which is 30 minutes from the city. The bus runs every hour and ends around 10pm, which is not ideal. That being said, the hostel is tucked in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in a quaint village.
Everything's just perfect from the location to the staff !
If you are looking to be relatively close to Granada, but not in the actual city, this place is for you. There is a regular bus service once an hour to Quentar but that stops running at 10:30, so no partying for you. The pool is open in the summer and is a nice area to hang out in, and the supermarkets in the village mainly stock juice which isn't ideal, but hey ho, it is a tiny town. The hostel kitchen is well stocked, and the staff are friendly! If you wanna relax in the mountains, go there!!!
Loved the location. The manager was rude about late arrivals, even when they were notified and unavoidable. No one was present to check me in until my second day of my stay. The pool was closed even though advertised as open. Kitchen facilities were good. Beds comfortable. Atmosphere was quiet and uninspiring beside the gorgeous view. I'm on the fence about this place. Good escape from the city but a lot of downfalls. The two female staff were super lovely.
Very hard to find, a lot further out of town then we expected. Thought it was near a lake but the lake was a 4km hike away. Room stayed in was 300m away from hostel so wifi didn't work in our rooms.
Amazing place. Great time in the village and Granada. Thanks Axel, thanks crew.
Great place for an escape but not ideal for travelers who want to explore the city of Granada.
