  • Makuto is a hidden gem in Granada (seriously, good luck finding it on the first try). From the moment you arrive, you feel welcome, relaxed, and inspired to meet other people. The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms are clean but basic, and the central courtyard is an incredible Swiss Family Robinson-style escape! As a solo traveler, it was super easy to meet other people and go out for sightseeing, dinner, or drinks. Makuto is so amazing, many guests extend their stay (some indefinitely)!

  • This is definitely a backpackers hostel so don't expect luxuries here. Do expect some great staff and a very unique walking tour with interesting people that you will have fun with. Thanks for a great time!!!!

  • loved the fact that they had the free tour. Breakfast was fine. nothing special though. They had friendly air throughout the hostel. The room seemed clean. But the bed was too high up. 5 stories of bed? I used the top bunk. sort of scared to use the bed. Not only that the location was bad... to high up. and the direction shown in the page was too difficult to find. Not bad place to stay. but I wouldn't stay one more time if I had the chance.

  • The hostel is hard to find - make sure you read the directions before arrival. The staff offered a worthwile evening hike, with a great view over Granada and the Alhambra. The offered dinner (pasta) was really tasty. Great atmosphere in the backyard. We had the double room, which was really worth the money. We would definitely stay at Makuto again!

  • Such a hippie hostel--with a tree house and hammocks--but it was great. There is a lot of communal space, the staff is friendly, and you can walk everywhere in the city. The bathrooms are communal, but clean. Rooms are simple, but they have lockers which was awesome!

  • Such a great hostel. Located in Albayzin, it's a wonderful place to meet chill people and explore Granada. I WILL RETURN.

  • Very nice and welcoming staff. I really enjoyed the guided tour which allowed me to have greats views over Granada, and to see more than a simple tourist. Moreover, they told me which are the best monuments/places to visit. I've only stayed there for one night, so I didn't had the time to take advantage of all facilities, but I've seen them, and you really have all you need, even though, as often you can't get wifi in every room. The only bad point is that it's not that easy to find the hostel.
