Liked: Nice view from the top floor.

Disliked: Impossible to find. (GET A SIGN) Sketchy cat sanctuary outside. Staff barely around. Shower head came off and sprayed water everywhere. Not very well maintained.

Liked: Location is quiet and we were happy to chill out away from the city centre, but at the same time, walking there was not too far. if you hate walking you would need to catch some buses though (1.20 each journey). Staff were very helpful. Beds very comfortable. Good shared areas and kitchen.

Disliked: Warning, there is no sign! If you are arriving before 9am or late at night DEFINITELY call ahead. If you want to meet people, only private rooms, so think about what kind of place you want. At one point no staff to check in, so I had to let some people in and then a staff member turned up in the afternoon with breakfast (about 3pm). No oven in Kitchen, otherwise kitchen is great

Liked: The woman who worked, Carolina, was absolutely phenomenal. She gave us a map, showed us all the places that we should visit, answered all of our questions, etc. The atmosphere of the hostel is very laid back. There is a great patio with an amazing view of Granada. Plus, toast and coffee before leaving the hostel was a plus!

Disliked: The property is actually on a smaller street off of the main street, and cannot be seen from the main street. We had to call to have someone walk us through how to get there. They should really just get a sign...

Liked: The staff were great and the views from the patio were stunning! It was a decent location; walkable distance from most touristy stuff but as mentioned, a little hard to find.

Disliked: The breakfast was just toast and milk, and it was a little pricy for the location and facilities.

Liked: Felt very at home on the terrace, kitchen and living areas. The receptionist was very friendly and attentive and made us feel relaxed and at home. The room was clean and spacious and so was the bathroom. The street is hidden but a beautiful area to walk around with lots of cute cats!

Disliked: I liked everything.

Liked: There was a nice terrace with tables and a couch for sitting outside. The rooms were reasonably clean for the price.

Disliked: It was impossible to sleep there because of very poor sound-proofing (the doors had very thin panelling in parts). The bathroom doors were of a kind that slammed whenever people went in there, so you could hear doors slamming all night long as people went in and out.

Liked: The location is absolutely brilliant - about a 10 minute walk into the main part of town but this means its really quiet at night and there are plenty of smaller bars and cafes within a couple of mins walk. The staff are excellent, friendly and were more than happy to help with anything we needed. The roof terrace is amazing and offers views over the whole city and the price is probably the cheapest anywhere in Granada. STAY HERE!!!

Disliked: Mark left no negative feedback.

Liked: the terrace and kitchen are very nice. great view from the terrace.

Disliked: our room was crap with a dirty carpet, dingy walls and no window (only a window into the hallway). it was very loud and every noise could be heard through the thin walls so we slept horribly on the very hard mattress. the electric lighting was dim and depressing. i think the other rooms are a lot nicer though.

Liked: The staff was friendly, but not always around. The terrace had an incredible view, the kitchen was large, but there were only 2 burners and no oven. The building had a lot of character. An average place, nothing spectacular, but it was certainly sufficient.

Disliked: The beds were pretty uncomfortable and super noisy. It's a bit difficult to find, as there is no sign outside the building at all.
