My best friend and myself had traveled through about 5 cities in Spain during our holiday and none of the other hostels could compare to El Granado. The location was central and our room for two was clean and spacious. Only complaint was the sketchy wifi as we were up on the third floor but the connection was great in the common room/kitchen.
Although the place is great, it is the people there that make El Granado that much better than the other hostels. Freddy checked us in and took a good fifteen minutes to explain the area to us, point out food options and places to explore. Unfortunately for us, it rained the second day we were there and left with nothing to do we were hanging out at the hostel. Freddy entertained us with stories and caught us up to date on the economy while we waited. Of course, Deborah is not to be forgotten-the lovely lady who did our laundry (only 8 euros for a hugeee basket) whom we are eternally grateful to.
I would recommend this hostel, especially because of the super helpful and friendly staff. :)
