Property Description

El Granado, your hostel in Granada :)

We are located right in the centre of Granada and a short walk from the Cathedral, the historic neighbourhood of the Albaizin, the Alhambra and the best tapas bars of the city. We are the perfect choice for solo travellers, backpackers and groups of friends who are looking for relaxed social vibes and an authentic Andalusian experience. We have 10 dorm rooms and 1 private double room, as well as lots of common areas including two spacious rooftop terraces!

At El Granado we value community and sustainability. We work with our local community as much as possible and we do our best to limit our impact on the environment. We are proud to be a sustainable tourism destination for conscious travellers.

We are a social hostel and we were nominated in 2021 and 2022 for the Hostelworld 'HOSCAR' in the 'SOCIABLE EXPERIENCE / PEOPLE PERSON' category (1 of 5 hostels in the world). Get ready to meet your soon-to-be friends and travel buddies.
Amongst other activities, we organize:
- Family dinners at the hostel
- Flamenco shows
- City walking tours and urban hikes
- Hikes in Sierra Nevada (wonderful views, hanging bridges, waterfalls...)
- Yoga on the rooftop
- Rooftop bar nights from May to October/November

If you think you'll arrive after 9pm, please contact us by whatsapp or email so that at 8pm of your arrival day we can send you the self check-in instructions.

We organize many activities at the hostel and in the city, such as family dinners, hikes, walking tours, Flamenco shows and yoga on the rooftop. Join our WhatsApp group to see details and sign up.
