  • Maybe I feel a bit foolish that I did not know this but do not visit this hostel in the summer if you cannot handle heat well, there is no air conditioning in any part of the hostel due to neighborhood noise restrictions and the heat made my traveling companion very sick. The room I was in had only one small, half broken fan to cool the entire room and it was miserable if you had a top bunk as the air never reached you. The mattresses were the most uncomfortable of all my hostel experience.

  • The best hostel ever! We met new friends there and the staff is super friendly. Their walking tour is probably the best in the city. The hostel itself is mainly consisted of a big interior courtyard, with tables, a bar, a patio, and whatnot. The dorm we slept in was nice, the bathroom clean and the kitchen too. Because of how the hostel is made, everybody is always chilling in the courtyard, so it is perfect to make friends, relax, play a game of chess... Great place.

  • By far the best hostel I've ever stayed at, and I've had my fair share of excellent hostel experiences. Absolutely excellent staff, also met a ton of incredibly friendly fellow backpackers. Great location, even better community. So sad I had to leave!

  • Had such a great time at Makuto! I can't imagine that there are many better Hostels out there. It was clean and comfortable with a very social atmosphere. I will absolutely stay there again the next time I am in Granada.

  • Great staff. The walking tour was excellent. We went up into the caves and got to meet the cave dwellers. The inside of the caves was fascinating. They have a bar and hammocks! Overall a very clean and friendly place. Highly recommended!

  • 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!!!!
