Kinda new to the travelpunk boards, but want to highly recommend The Rambutan in granada. It's really hard to find and up a high hill - which is hell if it's summer - and you won't find it in any guidebooks or at the local tourist office. This place seriously rocks though, without a doubt the best and most chilled out place I've ever stayed at. Definitely stay there if you're planning on visiting Granada - awesome city too by the way!!!

Cheers! James

Welcome! I wish I had known about the hostel when I was in Granada a few months ago; sounds like a great place. My hostel was just ok, but the city was amazing so the experience was still great!

Id like to second that recommendation, I just stayed there a few nights ago, Rambutan is such a great place. Itś so worth the hike, with such a great view, relaxed atmosphere, good food and cheap drinks. Very different from regular hostels, and one of the best on this trip.
