“Perfect nest for our brief visit to Granada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

My partner and I spent a night in the wonderful orange double room upstairs at Makuto. We loved the space - romantic and great value. Best of all everyone was outstandingly friendly The meal we shared in the kitchen in the evening was delicious and the company very interesting.

If you're looking fr an authentic experience in Granada then makuto is the place. It's right in the heart of the albaicin so it's perfect for exploring the city. Super chill atmosphere in the common areas and very comfortable too. The staff were so friendly and they made great dinners too. I stayed longer than originally planned because I liked it so much and I was sad to leave.

Thanks a lot for rewieving our hostel! Makuto is nestled, as you said, in the most authentic Granada, in the Albaicin quarter. Glad you loved your time at the hostel and end up staying longer. Hope you come to visit again in the near future.

We had booked the double room, which is very spacious and has a private bathroom. Windows on three sites so very light (wooden shutters so you can sleep late if you like). Everything is accessible on foot. Staff are very friendly and give lots of advice what to see and do.
We came by car and parked it 10-15 min walk away at the carretera de Murcia near the camino de San Antonio (unofficial car park). Granada is also a great location to stay if you like to hike in the nearby Sierra Nevada, for info see: http://www.treksierranevada.com/

Room Tip: There is only 1 double room. It's above the door and you can hear people when they are in the ki...

Makuto is my favourite hostel in Granada! Every time I go to Granada, this is where I stay. Centrally-located, amazing people, great food and hangout area. Took the FREE walking tour last time and loved it. I wish I could live at Makuto.

Really great experience! I stayed at Makuto during the summer 2013 and if I ever go back to Granada (which I'm sure I will do because its one of my favorite spots on earth!) I will definitely try to get a room at Makuto again before trying something else. Great location, great employees, great hostel environment. You will never regret staying there. Thank you Makuto :)

Ps. I realize I was logged in with another persons account when writing the last review. This is my real account, so I guess there will be two identical reviews. But they are at least equally good :)

Such a friendly place - great if travelling solo or in a group. Relaxed vibe with lots of free space out the back for chilling with a beer or a book. The staff organise tours every night and there's usually a sing song out back. Nice location so you can walk around old town or over to Alhambra.

I had a great time in Granada during December 2013.
I went there on my own and two nights finally ended up in 5 nights ;-)

Its really like a small family there. Everyone was very friendly and courteous.
I definitely like the great location and the tree-house.

Will go there definitely again.

Try it out!
