Reviewed 29 May 2009

Cant be beaten for location. Small but adequate room, next to office and made it noisy at times.Said they had wifi but we couldnt get it to work. Language problems made assistance difficult. Tiny bathroom. No breakfast. For the price and location, close to the centre, was acceptable. No english TV.

Right on the Plaza Bib Rambla and in the middle of the Alcaiceria (market) it's centrally located so you can already tick these sights off the list! Easy walking distance to the main street Gran Via Colon for taking the bus to the station/Alhambra etc, and to the Albayzin it's not too much of a hike either. Rooms are small and clean, just look a little dowdy. But for €45 for a double with private bath in high season, and to be in the middle of town it's great, can't really ask for more.

The best thing about the hostal is the entrance. Right in the middle of Morrocan markets. Loved it. Stayed here with 2 children for 4 nights. Room was big and ensuite large. Beds etc were okay for the price. Street was noisy at night, but when the shops closed it was very quiet until at least 8:00am. The owners were so lovely to the children. The place was immaculate. Please remember though this is a hostal, so not very elegant. Walking distance to everywhere, main plaza, Alhambra, shopping, restaurants, laundry, internet. Children ran around the plaza at night. Even close to a local restaurant flamenco show Taxi let us out right at the market entrance. Use the map given and you will find it easily. if you are on a budget and you want safe, clean and friendly you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a 3 star hotel, not for you.

I found this hostal to be a good value. It was in a convenient location to get to many of the tourist destinations in Granada. It is located on a pedestrian street, and it was a few turns to get here from my taxi - I would recommend knowing how to get there since you can't be left off close by. The street it is on sells things from Morocco, which was pretty fun since I didn't get to visit there. I stayed in a room with a shared bath (they also have rooms with their own bath) and I was always able to use one of the 2 shared baths. I had a room with an interior courtyard, and there was surprisingly little noise even with the windows open considering it is located near a busy town plaza. Overall, it was nothing special, but it was adequate and reasonably priced.

Hostal Zacatin was a really lovely place to stay. The staff were really friendly when we arrived and as it was not busy at the time, we were given our choice of rooms. The room we had was clean with comfy beds and a sink (there were 2 shared bathroms which were clean and a decent size). The staff gave us a map of Granada and were happy to give us advice on transport, dining and the Alhambra. There was a plaza at the end of the lane where the hostal is located with flower markets, restaurants and shops - there is a great atmosphere about the place. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

Once we found the entrance to the hotel which is within the Arab Quarter in central Granada, we were delighted with the reception (in Arabic of course!). The Zacatin was quite and friendly, with good & clean facilites for the short stay traveller. All towels ad soaps were provided with en-suite facilites. Room was cleaned daily. We stayed 3 nights and found all facilites in Granada close to hand. Loved the Shwarma shops nearby. Alhambra close to hand. Will return there without a doubt when we return to Granada.
