Hostelworld says

Travellers looking to experience the unique atmosphere of Granada would do well to start at Makuto Backpackers Hostel. This friendly, laid-back hostel in the Albayzín features an outdoor terrace with a bar and a treehouse as well as comfy lounge areas with hammocks, cushions and guitars. One Hostelworld guest told us, 'after trying two other highly rated hostels in the city I much preferred sitting in the tree house in the sun'. They also serve budget-friendly home-cooked dinners. We like their free evening walking tours of the Albayzín and Sacromonte.

Property Description

Tired of crappy accommodations and impersonal hotels? Come stay in our backpacker ´s hostel and enjoy a new concept of lodging. This charming historic mansion is located in the most magic neighborhood of Granada, the ALBAICIN. Housed in an eighteenth century building completely renovated, between cobble stone alleys and old streets. Everything worth seeing is walking distance.

A unique small hostel with lots of character, cosy atmosphere and great common areas perfect for independent travelers: Hammocks, Chill Out (with DVD player and musical instruments), Patio, Bar, BBQ and even a Tree House! Where you have the space to do your own thing and meet other travelers but where there is always someone at hand to offer best tips for you to experience the life of Granada outside of the typical 'tourist attractions'.

Notice free breakfast is included in our price, free coffee and tea all day and well as free fast adsl internet and wifi connection throughout the hostel.

Enjoy our amazing Barbecues and big Paellas, cheap dinners, best mojitos, games, book Exchange, laundry service and Makuto´s well equipped kitchen where guests can cook, socialize and share their meals. Do not forget to join us for our sunset free daily walking tour through the Albaicin and Sacromonte neighborhoods and check our board of activities: Arab Baths, Diving, Paragliding, Flamenco, Trekking, Cycling, Horse riding ...

Through we have activities every night, we are not a party Hostel, and after 00.00h you can always continue the party in the local pubs nearby :)

Feel free to leave your bags with us for the day once you checked out and keep on using all Makuto facilities when your transport leaves later in the afternoon.

You can also join us in our Volunteer Exchange program - collaborate with us in exchange for free accommodation! (minimum 1 month. Basic Spanish required)

Makuto Backpackers Hostel says

I think what makes us really special is that we pay a lot of attention to our common areas since we think this is what a hostel is all about. That's why we have three main outdoor areas - a patio and cosy bar to meet your fellow travellers in; Mexican hammocks for relaxing in; and a superb tree house for hanging out or catching a bit of sun. Plus we've got a chill-out area with a tree inside, a big BBQ close to the kitchen and tons more. We've really run away from the modern, impersonal set-up of some other hostels. For instance, it's free to use our shower, internet and kitchen after check-out if needed!
We're in a superb location in the Albaicin. It feels like a village in the middle of a city because 90% of the streets in our neighbourhood are cobblestone and pedestrian, with white facades, nice little squares, labyrinthine streets and cute houses. I always recommend that guests visit the Daral Horra Palace (where Boabdil's mother lived) and Bañuelo (Arab baths from XI century).
I think generally our hostel is suited for backpackers between 20 and 30 years old, but it really depends on guest's spirit, open mind and feeling. We have had older guests that loved Makuto because they said it has the essence of a hostel and loved common areas and younger ones whose parents have sent us presents after their stay as thanks for making them feel so comfortable.
