Tucked away in a medieval building in the centre of Granada, El Granado is a friendly hostel that's all about good conversation, new friends and a great night's sleep. We love to make you feel welcome, so we organise regular sangria nights and tapas tours, free flamenco shows and family dinners. There's a rooftop sun terrace for sitting back and swapping travel tips, and we have two patios where you can light up the barbecue, or (literally) hang out in a hammock!


You'll find us in the heart of historic Granada, an 8-minute walk from the cathedral and 20 minutes from the medieval Moorish district of Albaicín. To reach us from Granada Airport, jump on the Aero-Grana bus for 30 minutes to Granada.Av Constitución Ii, then walk 8 minutes to our door. You can also walk to us from the main train station in 20 minutes. You won't have to roam far to get a real taste of the city – there are tapas restaurants and plenty of bars in the jumble of streets surrounding the hostel.

Rooms and Dorms

Soak up the friendly hostel atmosphere in a mixed or female-only dorm, safely stowing your backpack in a roomy locker. Private doubles have a boutique-hotel vibe and come with a TV. Rooms have either a shared or en-suite bathroom. Every room has free sheets and air con, and you can hire a towel. For more space, spread out in one of our apartments. They have kitchens and TVs and the penthouse has a private rooftop terrace.

Extras and activities

You'll have no problem unwinding in our laid-back communal areas. Get competitive over board games or pick up one of our guitars and get the crowd singing. You can link up to our free Wi-Fi or hop on the shared computer to update your social. Hungry? Get busy in the kitchen or ask our multi-lingual staff where's good to eat – we have insider info on all the best spots.

    Hi! I will definitely get back to this place. The room was clean and you could feel like at home. My friends and I rented 4 beds for two nights. It’s located in the heart of Granda! We got recommendations for the places to see and where we could eat from the host. Don’t hesitate to book it and check it on your own ;) Thank you! Angelika

    This place is magic! The staff are DREAMY, super friendly, helpful and chill. The building itself is gorgeous, tall and airy but kept super cosy in the winter. The rooms are a good size, the bathrooms spotless and the shared space is ideal - I stayed just 3 nights and saw communal dinners, jam sessions, stone painting, calligraphy, board games, card games and big group chats, as well as guests working remotely and doing their own individual thing.

    Doesn’t get much better than this in world of hostels. Sad during pandemic more travelers can't enjoy incredible hospitality of this property. Owner invested heavily to build top-notch facility with great beds, light/electric outlet right where you expect, curtains for privacy, multiple kitchens, multiple restrooms & showers (with great hot water pressure!). Internet stable averaging 48 Mbps. The owner sets chill vibe and keeps the place immaculate. I can’t recommend this hostel highly enough.

    I was positively surprised about everything in El Granado! The rooftop areas are so comfy and great to enjoy Granada's sun even in November. My stay was short and sweet. The staff is friendly and despite the current situation they have a few long term guests who help keep a good vibe in the place. Tried a few different hostels in Granada and this is top.
