Map & Directions
How to get to White Nest hostel?..
White Nest Hostel is centrally located on Calle Santisimo number 4, ask for Paseo de los Tristes - we are close by. In the historic Albayzin area, a privileged location in Granada, Spain.
(Watch out because there is another street called Nuevo de Santisimo and it is not the right one)
From the bus/train station (bus ticket �1.20):
Take bus no 3 or 33 form the bus station and get off at the 'Gran Via 1' stop (right in front of the cathedral), the ride should take approx. 20 min.
As you leave the train station head straight towards Av. Constitucion, once there, you'll find a bus stop on your right. Take bus no 3, 4, 33, 6 or 9. Get off at 'Gran V�a 1' stop in front of the cathedral (approx.10 minutes).
From this point follow the walking directions below.
Walking from 'Gran V�a 1' bus stop to White Nest hostel, Calle Santisimo 4:
Cross the street (Gran V�a de Colon) and go right until you get to the corner where Gran V�a meets Reyes Cat�licos street facing Plaza Isabel la Cat�lica square. Turn left and after about 50 metres you�ll reach Plaza Nueva. Once there, head straight (passing by the round fountain on your left hand side). From the end of the square take Carrera del Darro street. Follow it until you see San Pedro y San Pablo church on your right. You�ll find Calle Sant�simo about 20 metres further up the road, on your left. (Note that there is another street called Nuevo de Santisimo and it is not the right one).
If you prefer to take a taxi from the train or the bus station to our Hostel on Calle Santisimo numero 4, in both cases it will take you about 10 minutes and it will cost you around 8 euros. (Likewise, please note that there is another street called Nuevo de Santisimo and it is not the right one).
The hostel is situated in the old town which makes parking quite a difficult task (narrow streets, little parking space etc.) Consider leaving your vehicle at Plaza de Campos car park (16-19� /24 h) in the city centre and walking to the hostel from (about 15 min). However, if you prefer to access the hostel by car, the best option would be taking Calle San Juan de los Reyes (only small cars due to the street's width) via Plaza Nueva-C/Carcel Alta (please note that you cannot take Carrera del Darro street since it's for pedestrians/residents only). You follow the Calle San Juan de los Reyes to the point where it meets C/Sant�simo (the street name plaque isn�t easily legible). You�ll have to walk down Calle Sant�simo, which begins with steep stairs, and within couple of minutes you�re in the White Nest.
