we had great time at this hostel! rooms are nice and clean, with nice garden and comfy hammocks. We were lucky to meet very nice people here and have fun times just drinking at the bar with owners and other travelers exchanging travel stories. Arnold and Donnaly were very helpful and really tried to make our stay great experience. If you don't know what to do around Granada just ask them to arrange you a day trip with Phillipe, very fun guy who will take you to a great tour around Granada.
