It's a very funky place with an amazing layout, not too far from the city centre and walking distance from the Alhambra.
Wonderful atmosphere, staffed by very friendly people. Nel (good luck in public health, you'll be great!) gave an awesome walking tour taking us around places near the hostel and up into the caves for some amazing views and meeting some very cool people. Location is a little hard to find, directions are good if you follow them EXACTLY, pay very close attention to the buildings you're walking by. WiFi is good in common area, beds were clean, free toast and coffee in the morning was awesome.

Push showers that last 30 seconds, the lights also cut out. The lockers are outside the rooms and if you leave your luggage after checking out it's just in the locker room so no security. Only certain beds have power outlets and they can be bunks four high. The rooms are clean and spacious though. The staff were helpful but kept saying they were taking people out each night and never did. Can't bring your own alcohol and meals were expensive there. Rooms have codes rather than keys.
Absolutely the best hostel ever! We booked for three nights and stayed 6, couldn't leave. The staff are so great, best atmosphere, met heaps of cool people, its in the best area in granada too! I can't wait to come back and visit!
One of the best vibes of any hostel I have been to. Love the tree house with the hammock setup below the treehouse. WiFi wasn't great but who needs it in a city like Grenada. Great location, definitely walkable to Alhambra. Huge shout out to the staff especially Alejandra, Kevin and Nell for making this such a great experience. Also, very unorthodox but extremely enjoyable walking tour done by the hostel...highly recommend
Great location in the middle of the Albaycin yet still easy to find. Staff was fantastic, offering a free tour and helping in a crisis (no way to charge camera before going to the Alhambra!!!!) It was a great place to meet other travelers and the dinner was yummy. Only downside: staff appeared at 8am so if you needed to check out before then or have breakfast before then you couldn't. Also the bathroom light was motion censored so if you showered early you'd end up in the dark
