Thank you so much Makuto for the great stay!! This hostel has the best atmosphere and the friendliest staff, who are incredibly helpful. They have a tree house which is too perfect to nap out on! They also offer a super unique walking tour, as well as excursions to the near by mountains. To experience every bit of culture in Granada, you must stay at Makuto's!
I had a very nice time here, the hostel has a great atmosphere and a super cool and friendly staff. They have plenty of common areas including the garden which has hammocks and a tree house as well and everything looks very pretty. Even tho there are complaints here about the beds, they are actually comfortable and there is nothing wrong with them, you can have a good sleep too. The downsides are only the lack of heating and the poor wifi, but only the first one is something that's important.:)
Really cosy and place.too many stairs but it worth it
MOST AMAZING HOSTEL! The staff and volunteers do so much to make you feel welcome, and the bountiful communal areas make it really easy to meet other people staying there. Situated in a lovely part of the Albaycin with all sorts of fun activities and recommendations for tapas and drinks etc. I will definitely be back at Makuto very soon.
The staff was SO friendly and helpful! There is a true sense of community amongst everyone at the hostel, everyone is very social and friendly. It's great to have the hang out area in the garden, as well as the tree house, and lounge! An awesome energetic atmosphere.
Amazing :) thank you Makuto family for your vibes :)
Great atmosphere. Staff is super nice and helpful.
Makuto is a wonderful hostel! It is a great place to meet like minded travelers and it really makes you feel like you have a family while exploring the world. The set up of the open air courtyard in the middle makes for an easy place to get to know fellow travelers and the location is great to see the noteworthy sites of Granada. Thank you Makuto for the great stay!
Great community feel, perfect spot to chill. Lovely to be outdoors so much. Musical instruments available which inspired some really cool evenings. One of the best experiences I have had in Europe, I will be back. The tour to the caves and the hike were stellar.
Really great vibe, nice to chill out in the garden area, met some cool people. Was a bit noisy over night and no staff around to enforce the quiet hours.
Makuto has a great staff and one the best public spaces of any hostel I've ever visited. Unfortunately the sleeping facilities are substandard. The beds are uncomfortable, poor quality and the mattresses are wrapped in noisy plastic. In our 6 bed room we had 3 bunks to a bed so it was a tight squeeze just to get in and out of bed. There is a midnight quiet hours policy but there was no one there to enforce it so it was sometimes noisy overnight. Also, i wish there more electrical outlets.
Only negative would be the plastic mattress coverings and lack of fitted sheets, everything else was brilliant.
This hostel is beyond amazing. Every staff member was welcoming and willing to help in any way. Thank you so much for making my trip to Granada amazing. The location is amazing, the hammocks were suburb, and the hostel itself was excellent. Definitely coming back soon.
Lovely location and hostel set up within super helpful and enthusiastic staff.
Anyone going to Granada this hostel is a must visit . The atmosphere and the staff are impeccable. They instantly welcome you as part of the family even if you are there for a few short hours. I found it to leave. It felt like real community. a wonderful place. Ken (Australia)

The beds are a little cramped (low ceilings for the top bunks), but otherwise this place is GREAT! Very good atmosphere, super friendly and helpful staff, awesome location. Highly recommend!
Great stay here. Dorm a little cramped but the free walking tour made up for it!
