After spending some time researching possible places to stay in Granada, I hit upon this one, and initially chose it because the response was quick and friendly, and the price very attractive. Booking was easy from England as well.
The location is excellent, in an area which offers very well priced restaurants and bars as well as two or three supermarkets, bookshops, general stores, cake shops, phone and computer shops, and so the list goes on. Chemists' too. It s also within a quite short walking distance of the cathedral, Elvira, the Albaicin and the Alhambra, and numerous other must sees. You will not need to take any transport other than possibly the odd bus to get around the city from here. Should you arrive by car, there is friendly parking nearby (which can be arranged though the hostel), open from 7 am until 1 am.
The owners, originally from the Netherlands, are most welcoming and friendly, and go well above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to taking care of their guests. You will be able to get access to a wealth of local information and advice on most topics Grenadian, including best restaurants, do's and don’ts, local events and tourism (including flamenco and sightseeing opportunities), excursions, indeed you will not get better information even from the local tourist offices.
The accommodation itself is very comfortable and kept scrupulously clean. Everything works (unless you break it - e.g. throw paper in the toilet - don't do this in Spain in general!!!). If you're cold, you can heat it up. Otherwise, cool it down. Overall, the place has a very warm and friendly feel, and a sense of trust prevails. You can even have your laundry done for a very modest fee, or with permission use the owners' kitchen if you need. You really would be very hard pressed to find somewhere as good as this in the city itself, on any count. I rate this place very highly, and will most definitely stay here again next time I visit Granada.
