Literally one of the coolest hostels I´ve ever stayed at. Hammocks, a tree house, need I say more? Only down fall was the middle bunk on the triple bunk bed. No bueno. Also the room I was in didn´t have windows so it was HOT at night. But overall, I would say the experience was pretty great.

I spent 8 days at this wonderful hostal, with my 13 year old daughter. The atmosphere is really nice and cozy, often with life guitar music and singing. Kitchen is exceptional clean, spacious and well equiped. The staff at the reception, Alberto, Joanna and Zirmo (sorry don't know how to spell your name) is unheard off...so extremely helpfull, fun and knowledgable.! I loved them all,and give some extra points to Zirmo, what a wonderful woman you are! And Joanna for your language skills etc.

This is the place you should stay in Granada. It was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. The location (although you need to walk up a hill) is in a beautiful area right on the street with all the bodegas, all of the staff is so friendly and knowledgable, the atmostphere is amazing (three hamocks and three hours of laying in the sunshine/breeze), and they have plenty of other spaces to hangout and relax (did I mention the tree fort?). Great value for money!

Makuto backpackers is a great place to stay when in Granada, probably the best. The garden is lovely; shaded, verdant and with hammocks. Staff is super friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable and cool, temperature wise. The location is amazing, right in the heart of old Albaicin but very quiet and peaceful. Keep up the good work Makuto!

Wow, this place was incredible. The minute you walk into this hostel you get a feeling that you are in a family atmosphere. All facilities are great including the very comfortable beds and clean showers. Met some amazing people here who all seemed to play guitar which let us have a few jams. Recommend this hostel to people who want to feel very comfortable in a convenient location in Granada.

I loved the friend staff! They were always available and very helpful. They gave me a tour of the hostel, walked me to my room, gave me suggestions on what to do, told me how to get to the bus station, and were always there to answer questions (or offer tea and water).

This hostel is perfect. Granada is an amazing city and Makuto is the best way to experience it. Staff are super friendly, atmosphere chilled out much like the city itself. Great location in the heart of the Albazin. Loved it so much I will be back at the end of June! Lots of love from Tim from Aus!

Ah Makuto... a long time ago most hostels were like this - providing the venue for amazing people to stay and share experiences. When I was looking for a hostel in Granada, there were loads offering pub crawls and wild nights out. I can manage that myself thanks! Makuto is all about communal experience - as soon as you get there you have a whole new group of friends in the staff and the other guests. Only complaint is letting guests into the dorm to ditch their bags when people are still asleep!

This was my favorite hostel that I visited in Spain! The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and gave excellent recommendations, the hostel was comfortable, clean, relaxing and friendly. My only complaints are the lukewarm showers and the very weak wifi that went in and out in my room. Still worth visiting! And I wouldn't generally recommend a hostel with a poor shower so it says a lot.

If its your first trip to Granada, then youre in for a treat for it is a magical place and the area you want to stay in is the Albaicin..The hostel location is perfect, far enough up the hill you are away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but not so far up it kills your legs! Great staff, great facilities comfy beds and lovely ambience . A really nice place to hang out, it has a lovely relaxing social enviroment to meet other travellers. Gorgeous and homely! top marks!! thankyou!!

Loved the hostel. Laidback people and good vibes. The Argentinian girl that worked there was beautiful and friendly. They cook meals every night which you can purchase and offer a bar in the outside area. They have a cool tree house and hammocks as well. Great location in the albayzin but a long walk! Its an adventure finding the place after a long night of drinking!

Room was nice and clean, the communal areas were small but nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and the breakfast (toast, orange juice and hot drinks) was sufficient. My only problem was that the toilets and showers were all in one small room so it wasn't the nicest of bathrooms!

Makuto was great! The hostel had a very fun atmosphere, great for young travelers. The staff was so helpful, and definitely went above and beyond to make sure our stay in Granada was great! They offer a lot to do through the hostel and will give you good deals on different activities. The location was pretty central, and the hostel was clean! I would definitely recommend staying at Makuto!

The hostel has a great atmosphere, definitely a little hippy which was cool. We only stayed for one night, but the walking tour was great (although not sure if the guy leading the tour will be working there as he mentioned he may be moving on). Good location, we walked to all the main sights. Wout, you will be missed!

I like everything in this hostel, staffs are super friendly and very helpful. They have got such a good atmosphere and common area to meet people, it's excellent for solo traveller. I like the free walking tour they offer to their customer as well. A bit of walking is necessary, but I think it's totally worth it. :)
