Hostal Rural Atalaya
Ranked #3 of 11 Capileira B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 December 2013

The hostal is a lovely place located just in front of the bus stop. It is conveniently near many eateries and shops (given that the town is pretty small!)

The room is just like the photos, clean and big. I stayed alone in a twin bed room and found it very comfortable. The heater was working and the bathroom was clean. Hot water was aplenty (extremely important in winter weather!)

WIFI was working and the staff was helpful in sharing information about walking in the town. However, the map given was very basic, though there was one with more details pinned on the notice board.

Overall pretty lovely place and very affordable. Do spend a little more to get a room with view. It will be more worth it!

(Do note that the rooms are not very sound proof and I could hear people walking pass my door every time they did. Could hear people walking up and down the stairs as well.)

Lovely stay in Capileira. Decent, clean hostel at a good price. Easy to walk straight from the hostel into town or down the hill to neighbouring villages. Not lots of walking information available from the hostel so worth taking your own maps if interested in walking. No breakfast available.

Very kind folks, with a very tidy hostal. The room was spotless and comfortable. We even ran into some car trouble and without asking, the owners jumped in and helped us out. I would DEFINITELY recommend staying here.

Very nice hostel by the road at the entrance to the village. Spacious and very clean rooms. We took three rooms with balconies overlooking the valley, well worth it. Comfortable beds, good showers. The owner was very nice and helpful, and gave us very good advice for dinner. A bit of noise from the street, but nothing like what I've read from other reviews; had no trouble sleeping. All in all, a bargain.

I spent 2 nights here and the owners kindly allowed me to leave my bags there while I hiked to the refuge in the Sierra Nevada. Spotless and central. Great deal.

I was looking forward to my stay in Capileira and at first everything looked good. The hostal is in a good location, the rooms are an ok size and impeccably clean, with a compact bathroom.
We stayed in a room with a tiny balcony (ok to stand on but no room to sit down) overlooking the main street.

BUT the downside was the noise. You can hear absolutely everything from every room - from the front door, echoey corridors, doors opening and closing, showers and WC and people speaking in the rooms. (think of the opening titles to the comedy 'Porridge' and you won't be too far away)

If you can cope with the lack of sleep, then this is the place for you - otherwise be warned!

Room Tip: If you opt for the budget rooms, be aware that you'll have one very small window (and i mean sma...

Located right in the centre of Capileira near where the bus drops people off. Basic place but the rooms were big, and we had a good view over the village and gorge from the window. Only saw the owner for about 5 minutes the whole time we were there but they can provide advice/ leaflets about walking in the area. From Capileira it is easy to walk up and down the gorge so this was a good base.
