Hostal El Momento is in an excellent location, the dorms are spacious and relatively cool considering how hot Granada can get, and if you're lucky you'll get a regular double bed! The atmosphere was however lacking and I found it difficult to meet people - an issue when you're a solo traveler! However of course I may just have been unlucky with the guests who were there at the time.

A good hostel that has everything you would expect of a good hostel. It was clean and well staffed. We were in the big dorm room which was spacious. Only negative was how hot the room became during the night because of the meagre fans. A no thrills hostel but it does what it says on the tin

Nice place very 200 metres from the main area of Granada. Friendly staff and comfortable beds. Has a bar and offers breakfast at an extra cost. Good spot

One of the best all around hostels i've stayed at. Great location, great staff and decent food. My only complaint is that they shut the water off during the day.

I really liked this hostel. I had dinner there too on a few occasions. Really good thai chicken curry.

Great hostel with a good staff--knowledgable about Granadian tourism, also very down to Earth. Great food served almost all day: try the thai curry. Judge a hostel by its cleaning staff. El momento staff is exemplary.

Great staff, clean dorm, lots of comfy communal sofas and lounge space. About $8 a night which was a snip. Right near a good hotel with a pool which was $6 a day. Lots of good tours which the hostel can organise for you. Serves food good value and v tasty. "Not a party hostel" which is everything we wanted and more after a tiring (!) weekend in San Juan.

great location, nice atmosphere

Good location and nice chill out area around garden but our room was right next to the kitchen with no windows so it was extremely hot at night- couldn't sleep all night because it was so humid in room. Bathrooms were pretty old. Our room had cable TV which was the only positive. Worst room we have stayed in due to heat- other rooms may be better but don't stay next to kitchen! Wouldn't return here in a hurry sorry.

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us, Granada is a very hot and humid city all year round and your location of room does not make much difference to the temperature,very strange for you to say there was no window when there is a very large window, to take a review serious it is best to write the truth. The bathrooms were built in the last 3 years and are painted and maintained on a constant basis.

Ideal place for staying in the heart of Granada's central area. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hostel is clean and dorm room is creatively organized and spacious enough. Would definitely book here again on my next trip back to Granada. An extra shower/washroom for the dorm would be amazing!

Perfect hostel. Staff were all friendly and helpful, facilities were well maintained. I appreciated that there were smoking and non-smoking sections outside, location is perfect - less than 5 minute walk from the town center

Great hotel in Granada, a liked the layout of the dorms and they provided fans for most beds for the hot nights of Granada. Nice courtyard to chill and an ok kitchen to make a simple dish or two. Location is fantastic and very close to main square.


86%

The place is one block from the main square and two blocks from the main road. Dorm is clean and spacious with a special rack just for your luggage. The lockers in and outside the room are huge. The bath-rooms are clean and cleaned daily. You can buy food and drinks at the bar for a reasonable price. It does have a tour-desk but I didn't us it. Info from the staff as accurate. There's no key to the hostel or the dorm but staff is on duty 24/7. Wifi is stable an super fast. A good place to stay.

This is a beautiful hostel. The dorm is great. There's a fan for every bed, it's clean, and the lockers are huge. My only complaint is that the kitchen is tiny.
