A little bit expensive considering the quality of facilities, but otherwise wonderful! You're paying for a great atmosphere mostly.
The beds aren't made which sucks :-( but the treehouse hammocks and common areas are amazing... Great place to chill. A bit of a walk to town. And, you can't take in ur own alcohol!
Absolutely amazing hostel and one of the best experiences travelling I've had. The facilities are all top notch and the staff are all wonderful in helping you to get the best out of Granada.

Great chill out areas where everyone gets together. Friendly staff who know the area well. Dorm room was tiny but you only use it for sleeping, everyone is on one of the chill out areas.
Really cool vibes the treehouse is pretty sick and the staff that work there are incredibly nice and helpful especially when we needed to go the hospital in Granada
You never need leave this hostel, the staff are awesome and really helpful, everyone who stays gets into the really chilled laid back atmosphere. It is such an awesome place that even on a Saturday night everyone stayed in for paella & drinks at the bar. Beds are comfy, tho pillows are a bit small, and everywhere is clean. Easily my favourite hostel ever, and I can't wait to go back and visit again someday.
Fantastic hostel. Very easy to meet people, good common areas. Was only planning on two nights but ended up staying for four. Definitely recommend. If I ever return to Granada I'll be staying here!
Makuto was a great place to stay, everyone was super friendly and helpful. Travelling alone, don't worry because they'll help you out and it's a great atmosphere to make some new friends.
Great place to chill out and meet travellers. Good kitchen and bar. Amazing hammock set up! Could do with some more showers
Was so devastated to leave Makuto, honestly best hostel I've stayed in all trip- if your down to chill and meet lovely people this is the place to do it. The staff are so helpful but layed back and helped me enjoy my short amount of time in Granada !! Can't wait to go back!
One of, if not the best hostel I've ever stayed in. A great choice.
Had an awesome stay at MAKUTO.The staff are the friendliest i have come across in my travels,and they really go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great experience while staying in Granada.The whole vibe of the place is second to none and I made some great friends while staying there.I got sick on my last 2 days and all of the staff (especially Syrmo) made sure i was comfortable and well taken care of.You don't fell like a guest here..you feel like part of the family. Thanks guys.!!
Had a great stay here a few weeks back. It is a really cool chill hostel with an awesome common area and is very social. One night we were there people were playing violin, guitar and singing. Almost melted my heart. Met some really great people here. The staff are excellent, Richard and Syrmo (sp?) were excellent hosts. Thanks! The showers are not great and rooms a bit small, but the overall experience was great. Have been recommending to people.
As a whole Makuto is quite a good Hostel. Only big complaint would be the temperature of the rooms. The is one small portable fan per dorm, if that, and it gets unbearably hot in the rooms!! The dorms are also tiny with no space for even a bag. On saying that the hostel is in a Rey good location and has a nice chill out area outside with hammocks
Great staff and great atmosphere!

great hostel, great atmospher, staff were fantastic and always remembered your name! Dinner was provived everynight for cheap which was always a great meal and a great way to get to know everyone. breakfast was basic but free! i was on crutches and had a moon boot on when i was staying here and everyone that worked here was such a great help to me when i needed it! they also offer a walking tour (free but tips) which was basic but good to see more of the town! THANKS FOR A GREAT STAY!
Favourite hostel ever. Amazing atmosphere, great for meeting people, fabulously friendly staff, great location near everything. Hammocks and treehouse for siesta are perfect. Best Mojitos in Spain, great family dinners, free walking tour. Win win win.
Definitely the BEST hostel I've ever stayed at ! Good location in the Albaicin, super nice patio to chill out (I misse the hammocks !). Don't miss the walking tour ! This is the perfect place to meet people and the staff is really nice -> I would recommend it to all backpackers ! Great meals and mojitos ;)
Makuto Backpackers has a special place in my heart. It has been by far one of the most friendly and welcoming hostels I have stayed at over the past 3 months. It's a small enough hostel for the staff to know you by name & the outdoor common area is a great way to meet other travellers. Makuto has a real relaxed and laid back vibe with a tree house, zen area and hammocks. Definitely worth checking out if you're ever in Granada!
