“One of our best stays in hostels...”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We couldn't find a cheap hotel in Cordoba since there was a "patio" fiesta at the time we were traveling there, but we really had a very pleasant stay here - the hostel was very nice with a small patio of its own, the kitchen, the room we shared with 4 others was very nice and clean and had lockers, the location is great - very close to the Mezquita. The best part of our stay was Marta - the owner, she was incredibly nice, she showed us where to go and what to see, where to go for some nice food and even what to choose (really great tips), we were really impressed with this place. She was also serving continental breakfast - which was also very nice and we didn't get that in any of the other hotels we were staying at during our Andalusia trip.

I couldn't have been happier with Backpacker Al-Katre. The location is ideal, the price is completely reasonable and Marta was an absolute life saver. She was friendly and accommodating, and went the extra mile to help us in Cordoba.

This hostel is located very near (100m oder so) to the Mezquita, so this is a perfect location to stay for every tourist. It has two really nice courtyards and the rooms are nice and clean.

It could have been a nice experience here, but it was very arduous to communicate with the staff, as they hardly speak any English. I also had the feeling that they didn't really want to help. The WiFi there is also very bad, I only got a very unstable connection with long ping times. Skyping was not fun under those conditions.

Got a little lost finding this place. Could elaborate on directions to the front door (not well explained on their instructions). Chose a 6-bed mixed room, though wasn't too keen on it being right beside the reception area, so with open windows you will hear loud guests. Came at a quieter season though and my room mates were inviting. Because of a less busy season, you'd have more luck socializing with who you stay in the room with. Was pleasant to have had the older hostess from Valencia on my last night (energetic woman!), who allowed us to leave our bags after checkout while we went for a little breakfast before we left. Nonetheless a block away from the cathedral-mosque, and walkable distance to surrounding tourist areas.

Me and my partner stayed in this hostel for the weekend. We had a sweet little "VIP" room.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, we asked for a map and got complete explanations of must do's in Cordoba.
I would have put the best grade, but I cannot omit to mention about the location of the "VIP" room which is literally adjacent to the bathroom area. Therefore it is really noisy and loud. There was a note on the bathroom door sharing the wall with our room, for people not to use it from 10pm to 11am, but unfortunately some sleepy people did not see the note and went to have a shower at 8:30 am on a sunday morning …. and woke us up…
However, I would still recommend this hostel for groups or anyone, because of the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the great location in the center of Cordoba.

One of the bests hostel I ever met and probably best of Cordoba. Breakfast is good enough for a hostel and receptionists are all awasome. Because of all other good rewiews about the the hostel, best backpackers(also nice for familys) visits there, so you can create good friendships...

I stayed three nights at Al Katre and was sorry to leave . I really nice atmosphere and friendly staff. It was more like staying in a Spanish style house than a hostel. Well worth paying 18 euros a night.
