I loved this place! Nice staff, good hangout earia. I stayed an extra night because I loved it! You realy need to check out this place!


Very friendly place to enjoy Granada


Really good hostel for solo travellers. Makuto has an awesome atmosphere and a really cool court yard that promotes socialising with other guests. The hostel is located in the Albaicin district, the best part of Granada just minutes from several of the best miradors (view points) of the Alhambra. The staff are amazing and always happy to take the guests out for some fun after work. The free walking tours take you to parts of Granada you have never been.


Great hostel! Excellent staff, awesome people and the atmosphere makes you feel like you're in a forest with good friends!


This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in, the atmosphere is perfect, with the hamac, the treehouse, the bar and the chilling room! Perfect location also if you want to enjoy Granada. The staff members and the volonteers are doing a wonderfull job, especially Charles, Amy, Chiara, Edith, Kru and Lucas. Thanks a lot!


It's a really weird place. Hippie and not clean. The atmosphere is strange.


Stay at Makuto. Incredible staff, great location, amazing common area. Makuto will make Granada amazing.


This hostel is the best. The atmsphere here is ethereal. The staff is so much fun, they are actually part of the party. And don't forget those amazing Mojitos. The common garden is ideal for meeting new friends. The Treehouse is also great for exchanging deep words or just to lie in the hot sun. Thank you Makuto! Don't ever lose your Vibe.


What can i say? This was the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. I made friends there and it was great fun, amd very comfortable. If you're on a backpacker's budget it may seem a teeny bit pricey but everything they offer makes it totally worth it. Heaven! the guest computer could use an update but that is the only criticism, which i think most people can cope with! lovely lovely lovely :-):-):-)xx

Good place, but incredibly complicated to find. The bathrooms are shared between both males and females. The atmosphere is great but a lot of people smoke cigarettes and weed in the outdoor common area...


Great atmosphere, everyone was really helpful, placed was packed but it was fun... mmm on the downside no hot water in the morning


Wonderful place! Loved the hammocks, the bar and the common area, which makes it super easy to meet fellow travelers.


Awesome staff and atmosphere. Have been two more than 200 hostels in the world and this is def.one of the top 10.


Great for chilling out and exploring Granada!


Great hostel, nice chill out areas, EXTREMELY friendly staff. Location is a bit of a hike but its good exercise! Great community dinners and good value cocktails! Just don't expect anything but white bread and jam for brekky. Would stay here again!


second time, same great hostel. Thanks Ron for being such a nice host.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Very friendly atmosphere, helpfull staff. Absolutely amazing common space in the courtyard. Breakfast is not so good, only bread, and butter with jam but it's a hostel after all, so it's OK.


I had such an AMAZING time in this hostel. It gets a bit noisy at night, but everything else was fab. Really didn't want to leave and could have spent my whole holidays just relaxing in the tree house playing guitar with the lovely staff! :)


Very friendly and helpful staff! Love the tree house!

it was dirty even staffs are smoking in the hostel. the only thing i like is the appearance of hostel. it looks very special. but too dirty and my room was humid. and smelly. if you like to smoke, go there. my guide book recommended this hostel. and i was very frustrated that book and hostel. and bad location to me. staff was very kind.
