good location, value for money, nice view from room
My friend suggested me to stay at this hotel because it's in the centre of the city and easy to reach by airport bus. I arrived in Granada very late and was afraid that I would get difficulties to find this hotel. But everything went well...it's on the Gran Via main street....so easy to spot it from the bus and some cafe/shops are open till late. For a traveller who never been to Granada before, this hotel is a best choice. Close to historical sites, traditional markets to high end shops, airport bus stop and Alhamra bus stop.
Location is good”
Overall convinent as there are a few buses seriving the area
We have to pay lockers for storing our luggage; which we felt that if it is a 2 star hotel; they should offer a room for free luggage storing
nice price with nice location”

inexpensive and well located, acceptable serrvice”
inexpensive and well located
it's hard to imagine this cheapest hostal on agoda.com is located on gran via, the main street of granada, and very close to a bus-stop. they have 4 floors and a lot of rooms. for this reason the hotel staff are busy all the time. they don't have much time to say hello to you.
they don't try hard to help you neither. and they are a bit rude by insisting me paying - i said i pre-paid it, but apparently they don't believe. they apologized ten minutes later realizing the mistake. i believe being the cheapest they handle many rude / less educated people so they become like them.
anyway, this hostel offered as much value as i paid. all facility are in the working condition, all regulations are followed to the line, can't complain much. you will find the hostal favorable when you don't want to spend much yet get a tight sleep.

Only the location is bearable
The only good thing about the hotel is that it's in a nice location.
My sister and I, we checked in well after the stated check in time, however when we got in our room, nothing was cleaned. Beds were tuned over and not made, garbage bin wasn't taken out, floors were filthy, etc. We needed to take off to Alhambra immediately so on our way out we informed the front desk. They weren't sorry or surprised that that had happened. They acted as if it happened all the time.
That evening we went to a flamenco show that we booked through the hotel. We went down to the lobby at 5 to 10 as told and the bus had already gone. The receptionist hadn't kept a track of how many tickets she sold to whom and so the bus just went without us. She called the driver and so 8 other passengers had to come back for us 2. That wasn't the worst part. Believe it or not, the flamenco itself was the worst part. My sister and I are complete amateurs when it comes to flamenco. We've never even seen it on TV so we really know nothing. So us two newbies go watch our first flamenco show and we can tell straight away that it's awful. The dancers were so unskilled. The guitarist was OK. So if ever invited to go see a show in "Tant..." (well, we didn't even bother to remember the name) don't ever go.
This is the last problem we had with this hotel. Next day we needed to get to the Granada train station at 9:10. We ask the front desk how to get there. Receptionist informs us that we can either take a taxi (10 min) or a bus (15 min). Naturally we want to take the bus at a lower fare and we ask about it. Receptionist tells us to take the #3 or 6 or 11 or 33 bus from the station right outside. We get in the bus and half an hour goes by and still no train station. It's not like there was traffic. Long story short, it took an hour to get to the station and we missed the train. Probably about 100 euros wasted.
Just about the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
Convienient but small”
small but clean enough. the location is very good, 10 mins walk to the train station. got the map from reception, and the staff would tell you the route.
Very cosy hostal and beautiful View!”
Located in the centre of the town, close to Alhambra and Albaizyn.
i got a room with clean pillow. the personal was very friendly, there was a computer in the hall, so i could get the information from the internet. also there was a cafeteria, prices was quite good. i had a wonderfull time in granada - all the sightseens were close to the hostal. it´s a good plase to stop if you are going to stay in granada on business or sport or travelling!
Awesome location for a few days in Granada”
Very easy to get to, rooms have a great view
upon arriving form the central bus station, we took the number 33 bus and got off at the stop directly opposite hostel atenas. the hostel is on a main road with many other bus routes available at your doorstep including the one that takes you to the alhambra.
we arrived a few hours before check in, but as the people in the room that we were due to receive had already left, the woman at the desk allowed us to take our luggage up to our room and leave it there as it was being cleaned.
our room had a balcony with a fantastic view. the sunsets from there were beautiful.
Good location but tiny rooms”
Walking distance to most things and tourist bus just down the street
Room was small and quite noisey. Location was good though and could walk to most places with 5-10 minutes .
You could also say its a hotel!”
clean, modern, helpful staff, great location
from the outside the hostel looks like a grand hotel and on the inside it is super clean and modern. it has to be the most value for money hostel i've stayed in for years.
Great location, good price and very clean room.”
It is located in the city center, making it easy to go anywhere.
Me and 3 friends just stayed one night in Granada. It's very easy to find restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The next morning we went to the Alhambra Palace. Stay at this hotel is very practical because it is close to shuttle bus stops and granada cathedral.
Economical Hotel in good downtown location”
economical no frills hotel
Overall a very good hotel for those on a budget. I was pleased with the quality given the low cost. Room and bathroomm were clean and functional. Rooms are typical European size, not large; however, the rooms were bigger than some other more expensive hotels within Europe.
