I loved this hostel! The staff was super nice and helpful. They remembered my name all weekend! The only downside is its up a giant hill and kind of hard to find but other than that, great location.

Loooooved Makuto! The staff was really nice, it had great directions to get there, the bar area was really nice and the outdoor patio was great. Was glad I got the room with our own shower and also had a very nice kitchen (though I didn't use it)

If you want a backpackers hostel - free-spirited, buzzing, welcoming, party vibe - then this is THE perfect hostel for you. The staff were beyond lovely (most especially Kru) and will take care of your every need - they really do go out of their way. I loved the location...hidden away in el Albaicín. I stayed in the mixed 6-bed dorm, and my only recommendations are: a bit more in-room storage, possibly meaning less beds; perhaps a rethink of the bathroom/shower facilities in terms of privacy.

Nice Hostel with a very chill relaxed vibe. The staff were really friendly and loved to take the guests on walking tours even when not on duty. I would highly recommend staying at this hostel.

The thing I hate the most are the 'bombs' along the way to the hostel i.e: dog poo. Otherwise, great location!

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm until I requested a move. There was not enough air circulation and the only window opened into an outdoor closet where they stored cleaning supplies and various chemicals--not a sign of being attentive to the health of guests. With the window closed, the only other air came from a crack under the door. Breakfast consisted of white bread with so many preservatives that they keep many days supplies worth in the closet. Makuto hostel wants a high rating; healthy

Unfortunatly I stayed just for 1 night but it was a really good hostel ! Very good location and atmosphere! Thanks Ana, Giulia (see you in Sirmione), Lorenzo (for the True Italian Pasta) and Greg (for the "unusual walking tour")

Makuto Hostel is fantastic. It really felt like a home from home thanks to all the amazing staff. We stayed in the Private en suite room which was very clean and cosy and we felt free to come and go as we wanted with out being disturbed. Makuto has a very welcoming feel and all the staff are so friendly, informative and helpful. Great value for money and the location is both stunningly beautiful and convenient. I would certainly recommend Makuto and would love to visit again.

Excellent hostel, with a friendly, inviting atmosphere. The staff are helpful and willing to make recommendations/take you out, I stayed here based on a recommendation from a friend, and will continue to recommend Makuto to other friends who visit Granada!

This is a great hostel. i was a solo traveler and found it easy to meet people. TV was great, good veggie food made by Sergio. Eve and Sergio gave a chilled out walking tour of the neighborhood and caves. Reception booked me Arab baths and gave great advice for the Alhambra. The breakfast is good and basic. I would definitely stay here again. The Bar is good and are two kitchens. There are some great restaurants,Tea houses close by on Arab Shopping Street. I stayed in 4 bed dorm, it was great.

By far the friendliest and most helpful staff I met. They go out of there way to help you out. The houspitality is what sets this hostel apart from the rest. Unfortunately the whole hippie atmosphere made this place feel grimy. The place is overpriced for what it offers as a facility. Small cramped rooms, small separated lockers, not so clean. I felt safe and slept well, but place needs alot remodeling but than again they are going for that hippie, weed smoking atmosphere , its granada

Lovely staff, great, kind of hippie atmosphere, good location. But facilities are below average for Spain, so not nice to have 3 beds in a bunk bed and be squeezed on the middle, smelly mix bathroom, no lockers or even enough room for luggage (that ends up taking all the room at the floor), not enough outlets and wifi didn't work decently during a 3-NIGHTS stay.

Makuto is a fun hostel. The staff host good tours to the caves of Granada. The food is great for vegetarian, it is a very hippy/earthy hostel that fits into Granada perfectly. They could do with outdoor heating, but it was the start of winter so no biggie.
