Sweet albyazin canceled my reservation 4 days before my check in date without explanation and have been uncooperative in refunding my deposit.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Im sorry for the inconvenience caused by the works in the hostel those days. For the return of the deposit I asked you the data necessary to do , but you do not even have provided me.


- In the access description you should indicate that parking may be a problem and that one should drop off the bags, before parking. Thanks for the tip of parking on the Ctra de Murcia - We were disappointed with the room, as it did not resemble any of the pictures you have on your site. - The Internet access worked only on the arrival day. I sent SMS to 0034 610271272 to mention the problem, but there was no response. The WiFi worked, but there was no Internet.

More of a B&B then a hostel, it was quite, comfortable, clean and in an amazing location. The €2 breakfast is simple but sufficient, the kitchen was well equipped and the various sitting areas were comfortable and homely, and everything was very clean. Only notable aspect is that if arrive before 8.30am you may have to wait outside for Lydia to start her day, but I'm sure with notice something cold be arranged.


Had a wonderful stay at Sweet Albayzin, and loved Granada. The hostel itself is wonderful, as is the owner Lydia, who went out of her way to help us whenever she could. The rooms had character, the directions were easy to follow and only a short stroll into the city. You can also get glimpses of the Alhambra from the terraces. Loved it and would stay again!


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed !! Staff very nice and helpful!


The perfect place to spend your visit in Granada. It is a nice, quiet and small house, very genuine and special. The bedroom is convenient and comfortable. The staff is helpful and the breakfast light, but quite enough. The best of all is its location: it is placed in el Albayzin, one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of the city and it is very close to the center, just a short walk away.


Amazing staff, very clean space and good breakfast. My only concern is if you have a large luggage, there is no lift and the staircase is very tilted.


Hand towels in the bathroom would be nice. Also, I thought breakfast was included and I believe there was a 2 euro charge.


Great hostel in a great city. Very friendly owner!
