Barrio Alto 18 QuentarOutstanding 96%
My friends and me stayed 4 nights in this lovely hostel and enjoyed our time in Quentar and the fun-da-lucia Hostel very much. The inhabitants of the small village were all kind and hostpitable, espacially Axel, the owner of the fun-da-lucia and the people from the corner-shop (which is by the way not too expensive). If you feel comfortable in a peaceful and calm neighbourhood, this is the right place for you.
Run by Victor, a great guy who provides an awesome map of the town, with tips about all his favourite local places. Rooms are spacious and bright, location is good (just across the road from the bus stop that leads up to Alhambra). Breakfast was basic but sufficient. We would definitely return!
This was like being in a family home - amazing place! No parking in the Albayzin (Old Town) but there is limited parking at the top of the hill. Follow 'Parking Albayzin' signs. Almost certainly better to arrive by public transport but either way you'll have to be fairly fit to manage the uphill walking. Definitely worth it though!
A lovely brand new hostel, combining the charm of a beautifully restored old building done in the Spanish/Arabic style with a little bit of Swedish modern practicality thrown in! The owners (a young Spanish/Swedish couple) run the hostel very well, keeping it all very clean and are also very friendly and offer lots of useful advice about what to see and do in the area. There is a communal dining/kitchen/lounge area for everyone to meet up in and relax. The facilities are good and there is a very comfortable homely atmosphere there. The location is central and everything you need or would want to visit is nearby. My only complaint is that sometimes you could not have breakfast till 9am, as they wanted to clean the kitchen first!
The owner is a young guy, extremely friendly, you will love him. We really felt at home (and had the place all for ourselves). There is a very charming old style terrace on top that gives you view over the town and the mountains and also a very nice common living room. The town is quiet and offers great walks to the mountains or the villages around. Great price/value.
Very small, but with friendly atmosphere and kind people. Not suitable for long period, but perfect for a short stay.
Located right in the heart of the Albayzin (quaint old muslim quarter), the spot couldn't have been more central for exploring Granada. The hostel offers plenty of opportunities for exploring and meeting new people. Rooms are rather small and packed with beds.
We just stayed there for one night, but it was really nice. The hostel is located in the city centre. There is a garage nearby where you only pay 10 euros for 24 hours if you stay at Hostal Nuevas Naciones. The staff was friendly and told us everything we wanted to know, the room was clean with comfortable beds. The ensuite bathroom was also very clean and nice. I can really recommend you to stay there!
