The staff weren't so friendly and didn't seem very keen to recommend things to do in the city. Like many past reviews, beware that this is a hotel - good for a couple like us to have some privacy, but wouldn't recommend solo travellers to stay here. Location was very central & right next to Calle Elvira - free tapas with the purchase of a beer at many restaurants along this street and small shops to browse during the day.


It is more like a hotel but in hostel price, actually no atmosphere. The bed is large and it is surpirse seeing a bath in my room, i only expect shower. But is is odd that the staff only clean the room around 3pm, or else it is 5 star for me!


The first impression you get of the hostel, is that the staff is not very friendly. During our stay the staff did not acknowledge us entering in the lobby even to say hello or ask how we were doing. They were not helpful with suggestions for sightseeing but they spoke English so check in was easy and the lobby was staffed at all hours. Location is great - bus stops are close and walkable. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Walls are very thin - you will hear your neighbors.

More a hotel than a hostel, otherwise it is just on the street where the bus to the airport stops so if you have to take a flight early morning its an advantage.


This is not a hostel but a part of hotel. The management did not bother about the hostel part i guess. The room was not clean on our arrival and air conditioning was not working. After lots of request and checking the management said it can not work more than that and we had to live there without AC. I will not recommend this hostel to anyone if they have some other option.


We had a great time at this hostel. We felt extremely safe as the front desk watched all exterior doors and interior hallways. This hostel definitely has more of a hotel feel but it was perfect for relaxing after a long day of walking.


very cheap and clean place in the city center. It's not an hostel though but more a hotel like place


The position is great, close to several bus stops, included the one to get to the Alhambra. rooms were very clean, with air-conditioners. there are no lockers in the rooms but you can find them in the lobby for 2euros. the atmosphere is nothing special since it's modern and not personalized but the staff was very available. recommended!


Located in a great part of Granada, right on the Main Street. Nice and clean, but it's more like a hotel instead of a hostel. There isn't a common area really or a kitchen of sorts to meet people. Besides that, our four person room was great with a little balcony and it's own bathroom!


Room very clean, nice location and staffs very helpful. I would stay again, surely.


The staffs are not as friendly as we thought. The location is near the cathedral but you need to walk to the Alhambra. It's easy to reach by bus from the bus terminal. The room is clean and big enough for two people.


Fantastic location - walking distance to majority of atractions. Staff very kind and helpful - also with advise on how to get tickets to Alhambra even when is too late;) Very clean and spacey, modern looking, nicely decorated.


More of a hotel but the location and price is perfect.
