Liked: You get what you pay for with this hostal. The location is pretty good, considering that Granada is a very walkable city, and the hostal is very cheap. The front desk staff was friendly, professional, and spoke English well.

Disliked: However, our bathroom was in terrible condition, as someone ripped the shower head from the wall, there is only one bathroom for the entire floor, the rooms are barely large enough to move in, and there is no air conditioning, so it got stuffy on the hot summer nights. Fine for a cheap one or two night stay, but nothing more.

Liked: The location is ok, nice view from the roof

Disliked: noisy, awful rooms, feels like your sleeping WITH the person next to you, terrible kitchen and better off saying no to breakfast, it's not worth it. This is the same price as some wonderful hostels in Granada - don't bother taking this option unless they're all booked...

Liked: great character, good facilities, friendly staff, excellent central location - great value for money - we also stayed in same owners' Nuevo Suiza Hostal in Seville and the same comments apply

Disliked: Nothing to dislike about the hostal. However, the recommended parking at 12 euros a day in Parking La Paz was a really bad experience. We gave the attendant a 50 euro note and 4 euros in coins for a 24 euro bill and he denied that we had given him the 50 euro note - the cctv footage conveniently had a 3 minute blank at the crucial time and the attendant would not balance his till to confirm that he had 50 euros more than he should have done. We had to involve the police - BEWARE THIS CAR PARK!

Liked: relatively cheap, the staff are nice and they try to provide extras like breakfast and free tea and coffee throughout the day, and unusually free international calls.

Disliked: lack of atmosphere, it felt like staying in a cheap hotel if you are looking for the atmosphere of a hostel.

Liked: Clean rooms and bathrooms. Loved the rooftop terrace with great views of Granada. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Terrace needed more patio furniture. We were on the top floor which wasn't really a problem for us because we are in shape but wouldn't recommend the top floor for the elderly or out of shape as there isn't an elevator.

Liked: Hostel is in the centre of town, easy to find and has a computer for guests to use, breakfast included, a reasonably sized kitchen, free coffee machine and a cool roof terrace. We didn´t use the service but there are free international calls to many countries.

Disliked: Often had to wait to use the communal bathroom. There are communal areas but perhaps not the best place to meet and hang out with other travellers.

Liked: Location (right next to cathedral, just off a main square, streets around it busy all night so you feel safe at all times). Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast included and free internet and free international phone calls through Skype! Roof terrace. My room had a balcony so I could wash out and dry clothes (ideal if you're travelling light). You can get towels if you pay a 2 Euro deposit, which you get back when you return them, saves you having to bring towels in your luggage taking up valuable space.

Disliked: Noisy - you can't get much peace when you need it. Walls are paper thin, you can hear every single thing through them, also it's centred around a main staircase, and you can hear every single thing that's happening in the entrance echoing around the building, so if you want a good nights sleep it's practically impossible because of people coming in from nights out etc.
