I couldn't sleep because it felt like flees were biting me for whole night. I wonder whether the sheets were washed after every guest. And possibly the dust was not removed ever. But it does feel like a return to Middle Ages!


Room certainly wouldn´t have passed a health inspection


the home-made bread for breakfast is a nice touch but it was out almost every day, suspecting the staff were there first :-) overall the facilities were too hippy for a central Granada place


Friendly small hostel in a great location. Breakfast was a nice touch, as were heaters and blankets in the rooms. The showers were cold (might have been our bad luck/timing) and it could do with another bathroom but definitely recommend staying here.

I will come back because I heard that if you stay one week they give you a free paragliding flight. Super cheap and the bread was awsome. A bit cold but the sun on the terrace warm us in the morning. See ya


This hostel was neither good nor bad, it was a noisy, grubby backpacker's hostel right in the thick of Granada's downtown nightlife. It's location was great but the staff seemed to be a bit grumpy and the atmosphere wasn't friendly or fun.


Typical hostel with soul. Not very clean, not very organised but GREAT because of the atmosphere and people!! Location is very good in the very centre. And the best thing is the tarrace where you can chill out all night long:) Me gusta mucho!
