This is a great hostal with a lot of great hang out areas. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food is pretty good, just the coffee could be improved. I would definitely stay here again. My only complaint were that the pillows were incredibly thin.

The hostel is centrally located, very close to La Calzada (the main street in Granada). Overall the hostel in nice, the common parts are very well done and bathrooms are clean. What we really didn't like was our room that was very hot, pratically inside the kitchen and very basic (without any hangers or chairs). The best thing of this...

We were sad to hear that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us especially after we helped you with a service that we do not provide and something guests always do themselves but we wanted to help you in this instance.

Hostal El Momento is nice place to stay with very friendly staff and a nice chill-out place. Although the upper room, where we stayed, was very hot, it is a quiet place to sleep well. The staff helps you with everything, even if you're not staying in the hostal anymore

The hotel was very nice and clean. Loved the small patio foe relaxation. The dorms were also well equipped and clean. Only thing is that kitchen could have more equipment it only has the basic so we had to do workarounds for our meals. Other than that everything was great. Quite and a good service.

Quiet Hostel with great, hard working staff. Zack greeted us when we first arrived (originally only booking 2 nights) and showed us our dorm, little kitchenette, fridge for the dorm residence and 2 relatively clean bathrooms. Chris, the owner from Liverpool, introduced himself as well. Everyone was so nice and helpful, their breakfast was delicious and they offered to fill...

After spending my first night in Granada in a party hostel where the mattress was basically non-existant and I could literally feel every slat on the bed I was SO glad to find El Momento.

“We loved room #4 because of it's view of the bathroom, so you could see whether or not it was being used. It's on the opposite side of the hostel where the smoking common area is located, so you're away from the smoky smell when people are hanging out there.”
