“Homophobic and macho hostel.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011

I went to ask for avaibility on the Hostal Granada in Lima, with my partner, and since there were no rooms for 2 available, I told to the lady at reception that we would have been fine also with a double room (or matrimonial).
The lady said that the matrimonial rooms were (quote) :'only for couples, which means a man and a woman'.
Now, I am on a round the world trip, and travelling since 9 months and I have never heard such arbitrary and homophobic comments, in any othe Country visited in Asia,Australia New Zealand, and other South American Countries.
As long as I abide to the rule of the hostel, my sexual preferences should not be of any interest to the receptionist, and I should not be discriminated against it.
If this hostal wants to survive, the staff should get updated on human rights lessons and hospitality.
I would not reccomend anybody to get close to this backward hostal.

My partner and I stayed at the Hostal Granada in Lima Feb. 6,7,and 8.
> We were happy with how clean and organized the hostal was.
> It also has a very good location in Lima.
> However we were surprised by the attitude of the staff.
> We did not feel welcome because the employees at the front desk and elsewhere seem unhappy and uninterested in us.
> Nobody said “hello” or “good morning” or “welcome” during our stay.
> In fact no one even smiled all the time we were there.
> Everyone seemed uninterested in the guests and were bothered when we asked them simple questions.
> How can there be such unfriendly service in a hostel/hotel? We cannot understand it.
> We hope that the service and attitude at the Hostal Granada improves.
> It is a nice place, part of some kind of Peruvian cooperative,
> where the employees act bored and did not seem to care much about the guests. We hope it gets better.
