30 May 2012

Liked: It was clean and in a nice location. Pretty decoration.

Disliked: Definitely a style over substance place. The staff were terrible. Check-in took about 30 mins and about 3 stages. They never seemed to give me the correct answer to my questions. Never even told me what facilities the hostel had or how to get to my room. One girl did tell me about Granada but in a very opinionated way putting you down if you liked the idea of visiting something. Room had no air-con and was torturously hot. The shower head permanently pointed at the taps so made showering very tricky. It was noisy with the tiles. Seats in common area while look cool are very uncomfortable. Kitchen tiny. No breakfast. Not great value for money. Tapas tour was only ok. The guides are often late.

Liked: The whole property was amazing. The courtyard with fountain was the centerpiece to an amazing facility. The hostel itself is worth a few pictures to take home.

Disliked: Only 2 public computers and you had to pay.

Liked: Everyone was really nice, and the building was perfect. It had a view of the Alhambra from the top floor, and the ambience was great. Free coffee, tea, rice, and pasta noodles, along with a full kitchen and COMPOST!

Disliked: I really can't think of anything to dislike about it. My best hostel stay so far.

Liked: Lovely staff, secure with someone always on reception. Free pasta & rice, that was the best.

Disliked: It was really dark in the rooms, as the lighting was poor and there were no external windows. Also, the bunks were pretty wobbly, so if you don't like the challenge of a shaky ladder, get the bottom bunk! Also internet was paying but really slow, if you need to do anything important go elsewhere.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful, they had lots of information about catching buses and trains to other cities which made it much easier to arrange. Our room was really nice and we had a little private patio which would have been great if it was sunny.

Disliked: The kitchen was really small, there's not enough room for 2 people to cook at once. The common area isn't very comfortable or welcoming and the wifi only works intermittently but you have to pay to use the computers.

Liked: I have stayed at many hostels and this was by far the nicest one I've ever seen! The rooms and common areas were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Great location, adjacent to street with many restaurants and shops and with a beautiful view of the Alhambra. The staff was excellent - very friendly with great recommendations. Highly recommended!

Disliked: No elevator- but they aren't allowed to install one, so it's understandable.

Liked: The staff were really wonderful. They gave us a lot of recommendations on what to see and the best places to go (based on local experience rather than generic tourist venues). We were always greeted with a smile no matter how many questions we asked or how many times during the day we would bug them. One of our favourite recommendation was the Flaminco dancing, we had a wonderful night. One of the staff even helped us book great seats for the football, as the websites that we were recommended in the Lonely Planet guide were overpriced with poor seating options (definitely aimed at tourists). Location was great, situated in the old town but close enough to the new part of town that walking was no problem. The hostel was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast (paid) was filling. I would definitely recommend this hostel and I look forward to staying there again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The entire hostel is decorated in a retro, funky atmosphere. The staff is SO helpful. It's also super clean- the bathroom literally is cleaned at least every three hours.

Disliked: It doesn't offer free breakfast, but you can purchase it for 3 euro. Also, the lighting in our room wasn't very good, but it's easily something I was willing to look past.

Liked: The staff was so helpful and friendly, even when they were telling us we were being too loud. The location was perfect, although a little difficult to find the first day because no cars can go to the door of the hostel. However, White Nest is in walking distance to everything and really close to many bars, a great discoteca and a lot of stores.

Disliked: It was a great experience
