Hostelworld says

Travellers looking to experience the unique atmosphere of Granada would do well to start at Makuto Backpackers Hostel. This friendly, laid-back hostel in the Albayzín features an outdoor terrace with a bar and a treehouse as well as comfy lounge areas with hammocks, cushions and guitars. One Hostelworld guest told us, 'after trying two other highly rated hostels in the city I much preferred sitting in the tree house in the sun'. They also serve budget-friendly home-cooked dinners. We like their free evening walking tours of the Albayzín and Sacromonte.

    The best hostel I've ever stayed in! It has perfect location and great social atmosphere in the common area so it's ideal spot for solo travelers. Stuff and volunteers are very kind and helpful with everything you need. Special thanks to Sebastian for cooking us tasty dinner and his always positive energy that made me feel like home.

    I loved this hostel! Super friendly staff, great atmosphere and perfect location. The staff are always happy to help with any questions and just to have a chat! Only negative was the showers don’t get super hot and it was a little awkward to get in my bed which was 3 beds high and only a small ladder to get to it. The free sunset walking tour led by the hostel is a must!

    Location is ideal to explore the many awesome viewpts that the Albayzin neighbourhood has to offer. The free walking tour that they offer is great and helps you to get to know ppl ard the place. Very sociable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only small complaint is that my locker keys are slightly harder to use.

    Great atmosphere, staff were always present to answer questions or help with information regarding the city of activities. Offering free breakfast everyday which consisted of toast, jam or nutella, and coffee/juice was a nice start. Staff were strict about the quit hour rules, which was very considerate and I am glad they imposed the rule so strictly. There were a couple of guitars for jamming, plenty of literature available about the city and activities, and always a minimum of one staff member

    We had a great stay at Makuto! The beds were a little hard to get into but we knew they were triple bunks when we booked. The walking tour is a must! You can get eggs cooked for you, for breakfast for an extra 1.50€ Love the hammocks and common areas and the staff were super lovely! Would recommend or stay again. Thank you!! Xx

Makuto Backpackers Hostel says

I think what makes us really special is that we pay a lot of attention to our common areas since we think this is what a hostel is all about. That's why we have three main outdoor areas - a patio and cosy bar to meet your fellow travellers in; Mexican hammocks for relaxing in; and a superb tree house for hanging out or catching a bit of sun. Plus we've got a chill-out area with a tree inside, a big BBQ close to the kitchen and tons more. We've really run away from the modern, impersonal set-up of some other hostels. For instance, it's free to use our shower, internet and kitchen after check-out if needed!
We're in a superb location in the Albaicin. It feels like a village in the middle of a city because 90% of the streets in our neighbourhood are cobblestone and pedestrian, with white facades, nice little squares, labyrinthine streets and cute houses. I always recommend that guests visit the Daral Horra Palace (where Boabdil's mother lived) and Bañuelo (Arab baths from XI century).
I think generally our hostel is suited for backpackers between 20 and 30 years old, but it really depends on guest's spirit, open mind and feeling. We have had older guests that loved Makuto because they said it has the essence of a hostel and loved common areas and younger ones whose parents have sent us presents after their stay as thanks for making them feel so comfortable.
