It's a magic place which attracts interesting people all over the world, lots of people will go back again and again which illustrate its glamour.

I loved this hostel. I had a comfortable bunk cabin (to myself the second night). Vibrant decorations, hammocks, and people everywhere. The "chill-out room" was so comfortable and a wonderful place to meet people.

I had an awesome time at Makuto's. It is a beautiful and charming set up. It feels a lot like a camp, everyone socializing and going on adventures together. The food they serve there is delicious, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the kind of people staying there are very open and adventurous. The accommodations were minimal, but...

Super friendly staff, lovely artistic atmosphere within a unique setting in the heart of the moorish neighborhood. I enjoyed hanging out there just as much as walking around the city. Highly recommended!

A beautiful location in the heart of the Albaicin. Really friendly and helpful staff, super chilled out atmosphere with people hanging out in the garden playing music and enjoying a drink in the evening. We had the private suite for the two of us which was really cozy with nice decorations. Highly recommended!

The 8 bed rooms were cramped up but the hostel is the best, very nice garden where everyone of the hostel hangs out and chills, always a good atmosphere. The people working there make you feel at home and are extremely nice, recommend it to everyone!

We were a couple in our late 20s, we had the single room so it was very private - all of our interactions with the other hostel goers and the staff in the common areas was awesome. I recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a safe friendly environment where everyone becomes friends and chills together. Very trendy.
