Location Information

You find our hostel in the middle of Granada’s most exciting quarter, the Albaizyn with its narrow streets, white-washed houses and its ancient spirit where you can wander around for hours finding small relict from the past like Moorish bathhouses, Plaza Larga (morning veg market) mosques or converted churches and some stunning views from San Nicolas (just 2 minutes walking distance from Makuto), Mirador de la Lona or San Cristobal overlooking the Alhambra and the city. Just 10 minutes walking from the Sacromonte one of the cradles of Flamenco and with its caves and the Sacromonte Abbey with catacombs. For the more Catholic part of the city, you should check out the Cathedral of Granada. Visit for free El Bañuelo (old arab baths) or enjoy the experience at the new ones "Hamman". Life concentrates around the main square, Plaza Nueva, where people have coffee in the morning and tapas during the night. Visit Calle Elvira where more great tapas bars, flamenco bars and night clubs are located or Navas Street (best locals tapas area)
