Best hostel I've stayed in while traveling across Spain. If you're going to Granada this is definitely the place to be. Helpful staff, amazing location. Every hostel should be like this one.
Loved the atmosphere of the hostel - very relaxing and pleasant. I would definitely recommend Makutos to friends. Staff were very friendly and helpful!

one of the best hostels i have ever been. nice atomosphere, very nice staff and people. just a backpackers dream. thanks david
This hostel was fantastic! The atmosphere and staff were so great - they were like fellow travelers. There is a courtyard with hammocks and a bar were everyone hangs out. So easy to get a group together to go out for drinks and tapas! Rooms were great as well (I stayed in the 4 bedroom with a bath, which was like a little hotel room). This hostel is great for meeting others. If you are looking to be on your own, I would still recommend it for the atmosphere and location.
awesome place. only shit thing was our 4 bed room only had one window that opened to the cleaning closet, it stunk pretty bad. definitely recommend the walking tour.
Loved the staff, great facilities, great location. Absolutely loved Makuto, definitely the place to stay in Granada
It was awesome! Great people and atmosphere!!
All the staff are really nice young people, they'll think about lots of activities to keep you feel good at there!! And the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic!!
Makutos - we miss you already!! Amazing hostel, amazing staff, perfect location, everything was spot on and we cannot wait to return. Hammocks, tree house and a little bar - what more do you need? :)
Definitly the place to stay in Granada ! Thanks for all Hadrien !!!!
This place was great in almost all ways. I would consider staying again. HOWEVER, the bathroom is a bit of a problem. It's unisex and there is no real privacy between the shower and the toilets. There is no privacy at all really. Again other than that the place is great!
Pretty decent hostel overall, the tree house and hammocks are an awesome idea, and the vibe from the hostel reflects the culture you feel in the city of Grenada. The showers were too warm and can't be changed in temp, but they were clean. The only real thing that bugged me was the "no outside alcohol policy" which wasnt stated on their hostel world profile prior to booking. Other than that it was a great hostel, nice staff and a hard to beat location.
My best hostel experience till now!

Loved the vibes! It's all the little things that really make the difference. Great decorations everywhere, love the murals, the lighting, and the courtyard. Everyone on the staff was extremely friendly and really made us feel at home. The walking tour was really very cool! However, the pub crawl sucked. You guys should consider ending your affiliation with that program. The guy's intentions are good, but he just wasn't organized and really just went into each bar and begged for free shots. :/
A lovely place to stay, and worth the slightly more expensive fees.
Really friendly staff! So lovely and helpful! Great atmosphere and good party hostel
This was a good hostel to stay at. It was a little quieter than the other one we stayed at in Granada but had a great crowd staying there. The chill out room was a little gross and could use some cleaned up furniture etc. The free breakfast was basic but you could purchase more at a really cheap price.
Other than the common area this place is not what you would expect. Even the basics such as controlling the temperature of the shower is not available. No air circulation in any room, we had to sleep with the door open every night to be confortable. Bunks stacked three high can be daunting to enter and exit. It is not an easy place to locate and could benefit from signage assisting travellers if they are on the right path. The reception is not 24 hours.
