This is a nice hostel. You get free and different breakfast every day, rooms are clean, beds are comfty and staff is friendly. Even though the hostel is situated right at the highway I would say that the location is excellent. You get free bikes so you reach the beach in 5-6 minutes, the town in 7-8 and the ruins in 3 minutes. If you stay in the town, you Will have a long way to the beach. What this place lacks is atmosphear, but I would stay here again.
This hostel has a great atmosphear! You get free basic breakfast, free tasty rumpunsch every night and you always meet people to talk with. Beds are comfortable and the staff in the reception is very friendly. Although the kitchen staff is awefully rude, the outside area is hidious and the prices are high I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again.
Nice but pretty boring hostel if you want to meet people. Kitchen and terass is very good. Beds are really uncomfortable though. Good hostel. Would stay here again.
Super great hostel! Nice pool to cool off in (Granada is really swetty), amazing pancake breakfast, descent wifi, good and plenty computers. Only small down sides are the kitchen and the fact that the rooms can get pretty hot at nights, but it depends from bed to bed. I have been to Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Nicaragua and this is so far my favorite hostel!!!
Really great hostel!!! Only bad thing is you dont get any breakfast, except for that tjis hostel is really nice and the surroundings are amazing. Stay here!
This is an okey hostel which lacks in atmosphear. Kitchen is really good, common areas as well, but we didnt have a good time at this hostel. Breakfast is poor, staff are a bit strange and there is à taxi driver who sits in the reception all day and tries to get costumers. Strange but rather good hostel.
Okey hostel. Breakfast is really poor and the beds are not comfortable and to short. Pretty good common areas and the hostel is well located.
Nice hostel located in a good neighborhood, close to supermarkets, restaurants and cinemas. Breakfast is ok, beds are really comfty and the bar is nice. Lots of bathrooms and nice common area. Kitchen is small and pretty bad.
Very good party hostel. The rooms are spacious, but smell à bit funny. The beds are really nice and breakfast is okay. Not much to complain about.
Very nice hostel. Only bad thing os the pool table, but I can live with that. Great location, okay atmosphear.
PARTY PARTY PARTY! This is definetly a party hostel, so if you dont like to party - do not stay here. The bar plays really loud music til 1 am every day, which got kind of annoying the days you just wanted to sleep. The hostel is huge, with 180 beds and 3/4 of the people are guys. Breakfast is good and the restaurant cook good food all day. Wifi is poor, but location is excelent. Even though this is a really good hostel, I didnt have a good time here. I do like to party but not EVERY single day!
Not much to complain about, except for the noise from the construction work from the neighbours. They started at 7 am and woke up the whole hostel. The hostel manager told us that it would last for 2 more months so if you book à room here you should check out when the renovation stops. Otherwise, great hostel!
Good breakfast and nice common areas. The wifi works fine and the rooms are pretty good, even though the beds are a bit small. Its not a party hostel, more of a family hostel with lots of children swimming in the pool. Only downside is the kitchen which is really poor. Nice hostel!
Good breakfast, good wifi, nice common area and kitchen and nice people. The rooms without ac were really swetty at night and the ac-rooms were a bit expensive. Otherwise good hostel!
When we stayed here there were a lot of south americans here and since we dont speak any spanish we had a hard time finding someone to hang out with. The hostel is great otherwise, the common areas the best I have ever seen and the kitchen is really nice. Breakfast also very very good. Still I didnt have the best time here, but I guess that its because the lack of good athmosphere.
Staying at Banyan View Lodge was an over all very bad experience. The staff wasn't at all nice and helpful, the entire place smelled bad and it looks depressing. It actually looks like a bunker and the rooms were very small, there's nowhere to put your bags. We left two days earlier than planned. The kitchen and the pool were the only good things. Sorry
This is a very good hostel, altought everything is not great. We stayed at a 5 bed dorms which was pretty dirty, mostly because of our room mates who spread their things all over the room. There are three kitchens but none of them are very good. Good thing is they never got crowded. Pool area and TV-room is fantastic. The staff were very nice and helped us book tours. Good breakfast - cereals and cappuccino. Last two nights we stayed in a double room which was very nice. Would recommend!

We had a nice stay at Civic Guest House. The hostel was overall very good and had no major flaws. There is free wifi but they had some problems with it when we were there so it didn't work all the time.
Very nice hostel in a perfect location. Only downsides were the security (we couldn't even lock our door) and the incredibly loud music in the kitchen which was a bit dirty but spacious.
Definitely the best hostel we have stayed in so far. Everything was perfect except for the location, but the hostels shuttle bus made up for that. It takes you (almost) wherever you want to go every hour. Loved it!
Good: Friendly staff, the rooms were clean, the location was perfect, pretty small hostel (which we think is better). Not so good: People ditn't do their dishes, the common room was a bit dirty and often crowded in the evening, the door to our room was open all the time and there were people in our room who didn't sleep there. All in all, an okay hostel if you don't stay to long. Good value for money - our room only cost us $24 a night.
To much partying
