11 April 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to Alhambra. You can get there by foot.

Disliked: We had room for 4 person but in my opinion it was a room where should be max 3 beds. It was good room for sleeping (convenient beds) but you couln't do anything else becouse of lack of space (no chair). We were in Granada only 1 day so it wasn't a problem for us but if we had stayed more days it could be little inconvenient.

Liked: The only positive was the closeness to the Alhambra, and the price.

Disliked: The rooms feel like prison cells and the bathrooms were tiny and disgusting - every toilet there the night we were there was either dirty or broken and the showers are so small!

Liked: It´s a good place to sleep. Comfy beds and hot showers! The location is great. Just a little walk to the city center and there are some great restaurants and cafeterias near. But the place is also in a safe and quiet neighbourhood.

Disliked: The staff was never there. We arrived at 9pm and we had to wait outside for about 5 minutes before someone answered the door bell. The girl didn´t speak English that much.. :D There was a resepction desk but there was no-one there ever, not even during the daytime. So bring your own maps and figure out Granada on your own, the staff isn´t gonna help you. :D

Liked: It's in a nice neighborhood and it`s fairly easy to get to, make sure to grab a tourist map if you pass through the bus station, train station, airport, etc...Victoria is friendly. The showers and toilets were tiny, but clean.

Disliked: Definitely let them know your arrival time as there is not always someone around to let you in and give you your keys. The kitchen wasn't so clean, but that was probably because of the other guests not cleaning up after themselves.

Liked: It was so cheap to stay here and actually quite nice. The neighbourhood is quiet and it is still walkable to town and very close to a supermarket and bus stop. The guy on reception was really friendly and helpful and even did our laundry for us. There was free wifi which had reallly good reception in the rooms. There was a kitchen for use.

Disliked: The room was pretty hot and a fan could have been good. Also the toilets and showers are tiny - but there are lots of them so no lining up to use the bathroom.

Liked: Jacob, the guy who works there, was really friendly and welcoming. We got a room to ourselves with a private bathroom for 11 euros each (2 of us) which i thought was really good value. Relatively close to the centre/Corte Ingles.

Disliked: Really quiet but perfect for us because we weren't looking to meet hundreds of people and party! Not for you if you want a traditional backpackers hostel!

Liked: Really cheap! I red very bad feedbacks about this "hostel" but it's not bad. If you want to meet a lot of people this is not your place, but for this price you have a very good option for to spend the time in the city and in the hostel just to sleeping or cooking.

Disliked: - No WI-FI. - You must call by PHONE to the staff! - They charged me a fee for the LINEN (1,5€) when I was my own sheets! - Small space in showers and WCs.

Liked: location-10 min walk to center! got a free upgrade to private rm w/ shower. Great deal for your money.

Disliked: There is no front desk/reception area so there's never anyone there. You have to call the person on your mobile. The atmosphere/ambiance creepy. It's not your usual hostal w/ lots of young people. I think most days I was there I was the only person in the building. You can easily get murdered there and no one would be the wiser.

Liked: Location

Disliked: You couldn't use the washing machine or use the kitchen. The room was dirty (dirty walls,sheets) and a smelly bathroom! The receptionist could not understand no English and was never there, if you had questions. No air condition.
