“Very nice start of Nica trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

We stayed the first 2 nights of our trip in 'entre amigos'. we found it because the hostals of our guide were full. But we are very happy luck brought us there.

The owner and staff are very kind and relaxt and there english was perfect which helped us by planning our further trip. Rooms were decent and clean. With a nice kitchen to use to make our own dinner. Hostal is relatively small so its easy to make some new friends. Good Price!

Thanks for getting our traveling started!

We stayed a few days in this hostal, and we will certainly recommend it to people who want to stay in a quiet and relax place. There are a lot of amenities offered in the price you do not find in the other hostal: water refill (avoid buying too many plastic bottles), free coffee, good kitchen and well equipped, and the hostal is really well located. on top of that, Cesar is a really nice person, and if visiting Granada, one has to stop by just to chat with him and visit his shop at the entrance of the hostal. really inspiring.

Me and my boyfriend loved this hostal. It's really quiet and peaceful, the owner is lovely and the jewellery he makes is beautiful. We had a private room with a bathroom, it was clean and comfortable and never really got too hot. I really recommend this place. It's so cheap too!

Cesar is a down-to-earth, hard-working, awesome dude who gets it. His English is great, he knows what it's like to travel, he's an admirable business owner and generally super interesting and knowledgeable. My boyfriend and I didn't actually stay at his hostel, but went in the "gift shop" in the front of it on a whim during our trip to Granada in May 2013. The shop is an artist's cooperative with real stuff made by real people from the community, at decent prices. Cesar didn't harass us about buying anything in the shop, but was attentive when we had questions, and we ended up chatting for upwards of an hour near the end. If we would have known about him before, we would have stayed at his place no matter what. Dude's legit.

Entre Amigos is a great value for Granada. Everything that has been said about the owner, Cesar, is absolutely true and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

I stayed at Entre Amigos with my two young sons for 3 nights at the end of May 2013. The courtyard is small but just the right size for the number of rooms, and they have a lot of movies to choose from to watch on their tv/vcr. There is no ac, but our room had both a standing fan and a ceiling fan which was enough to keep us comfortable at night. The beds are firm, the shared kitchen is clean and well stocked. The wifi is consistent and available in the rooms.

Cesar was great with my kids and also helped us find a place to stay long-term and schools (art and language) for my boys. My son had an infection and he helped us find a (free) doctor next to the pharmacy. They have plenty of books to read - some travel books too - and Cesar always seems to have discount flyers to popular places.

A very quiet and nice hostel well situated. It is not very big but this guarantees a very calm stay in Granada. The hostel has ALL the services you need: lots of books and guides left behind by travellers, a nice patio, TV with movies to watch, clean shared areas: kitchen, toilettes and showers. And lockers for the personal belongings.

The dorm can be a bit crowded though, since it has 4 single beds and 4 double beds! However, it going in low season, it is nice to have a nice sleep and rest in a double bed, probably the best beds-matresses I have been in hostels. It is also situated in the back of the hostel, so it is quite and one can sleep with the door open to get some fresh air, otherwise, turn up the funs!!!

The staff is great and helpful, always handy and ready to help and to give you hints on Granada. They also have a shop with locally made crafts by an association, nice but a bit expensive though... but I guess it goes with the association behind them

Thumbs up to Cesar! On my second stay at the hostel, after coming back from Ometepe and having made a reservation before leaving, I just found that no bed was available :( You can always find any other hostel in the same street (there are quite a few), but I just felt dissapointed after 5 hours of trip from the island and just wanted to leave my bag and relax, not wanting to go under the heat around looking for accommodation. After some talks with Cesar, we ended up agreeing to occupy a small single room (nothing special, a bit hotter, closer to the street, so a bit noisier and next to the kitchen) for a night before moving to the dorm, and at the price of a dorm. Fair solution, but dont know whether originally proposed by them or just after telling them of my intention of a bad evaluation in tripadvisor.

At the end the solution was good for both, since the hostel was not full, but just ensure when you made a reservation they take it! Otherwise, the hostel shall not take any reservation, in particular for dorms and in pick season

However, overall and excellent and pleasant stay! If I go back will definitely return to Entre Amigos, perhaps without a reservation :P

Thumbs up for Cesar and the crew! Very helpful and always giving you the right information

Nos vemos por el mundo CEsar! Un fuerte abrazo de Sebastian!

My stay in Entre Amigos was great! They where very friendly and i made some really nice friends over there. Ceasar is a great guy and helps you with everything! The hostel is very clean and the beds are very comfortable! I stayed there for 5 nights because of an ingury and everybody in the hostal helped me with that! It feld a little bit like home! The giftshop at the front is very lovely and they make beautifull things!!
