Checked in. Then read the reviews. Having spent 3 nights here then returned for another they seem harsh (unless it was a stuff stolen one then fair enough).
It's budget accommodation. No frills, no shiny stuff but ok. We had a private room which was clean and functional.
The kitchens ok as are the toilets and showers. Not sure what people are expecting for low price in expensive Granada. It's better than the noisy party hostel with bed bugs we were in before.
The rabbits are cute too
We stayed here for three nights and had a private room. Staff was in the process of re-painting two rooms while we were there and the manager was shy but helpful and kind. Linens are washed by hand in the back of the hostel and on our last night, my husband woke up with bites from bedbugs. We paid $15 a night and booked a tour to Apoyo through them, and it was a pretty quiet atmosphere with pet bunnies, a turtle and a cat. Many hotels and hostels were booked because of peak season, and we tried spending less time there and focused on site-seeing. The owners should invest in new beds, fixing up their kitchen, baths and bar. Some of what you see in the pictures no longer exists upon arrival.
The owner is really awesome.
The room is clean and everything is at good price.
Best place for granada.
The is few animals that are really cute that live in that hostel.
You may be woke up by a rabbit that is liking your finger if you left the door open !
We will come back for sure !
Don't stay here! The staff are rude and unhelpful when trying to book tours and transport the manager quoted us prices far higher than being offered by other hostels. The rooms are untidy, unclean and uncomfortable. Animals run around the rooms at night, I woke up to find a cat and a rabbit trying to eat items from my bag when I asked the staff for help to remove them from the room they laughed and said it wasn't a problem that they are there. From speaking to other travellers many said that the reviews in the lonely planet seem like they're talking about a completely different hostel! Don't stay here, stay at the treehouse or across the road.
We just checked out the bearded monkey and there must be thousands of bed bugs in dorm #2!!!! We found them in the morning walking around on our beds and backpacks! Although the receptionist was fair enough to give us our money for the night back, I'll never go back there!! He didn't take any actions for cleaning the room or doing something against the bugs while we have been there and it didn't look like he was going to do so later-.-
