Hostal Costa Azul
Family run Hostal, Good central location.
I found this on the internet. Good location, within walking distance of most of the cities attractions - Less than 5 minutes walk to the Cathedral. Also very reasonable single room, 4 nights = total price GBP 52 !!
(Breakfast was 3 euros I think, but I ate at the nearby cafes on Navas)
Open all year round
C/Rosario leads on from Navas, which is lined with pleasant bars, cafes etc. Which leads off Plz de Carmen. A popular area for trying tapas.
Friendly staff, some with limited english, but no problems. Felt like a family run place.
Free to use the internet - 30 minutes .
Attractive decorated entrance and lounge area , Moorish style fountain, tiled walls etc.
Clean room, with bed, wardrobe, bookshelves, dressing table, bedside table. Bathroom with small bath, overbath shower, WC, basin.
My only gripe was that my room (101) was right next to the main door, with the window opening onto street level.
Although it was pedestrianised, I was disturbed by the noise of people walking past chatting, and people waiting to be let into the hostal after midnight. Also opposite my room was a greengrocer, who opened up early in the morning, although he was quiet, I could still hear as he rolled up the shutters etc.
Directly next to my room was a bar, so there was some general noise - It's not a rowdy area, just that sounds carried easily. (plus I've discovered I'm a light sleeper!)
The hostal was full, so I couldn't move to another room.
I'd stay here again, but I'd request not to be in Room 101 ! or if I was, I'd remember my ear plugs! To be honest, I'd rather stay in a place like this where there's a cosy family run atmosphere, that's clean and with a good location, even if it's not sound proofed, than a bland, corporate overpriced soundproofed hotel.
I've rated my stay as satisfied, it would have been graded higher if I'd been in a different room.
Unique Quality: Great location, less than 5 mins walk to Cathedral/ Plaza Nuevo etc. just off Navas, so handy for bars/cafes etc
Family run hostal- friendly/helpful staff ( limited English, but this added to the charm of the hostal - not an 'international/corporate/bland place)
Moorish decor - fountain in reception, tiled walls etc.
Free use of internet (30 minutes)
Directions: At the Cathedral, face Christopher Columbas statue, turn right into Calle Reyes Catolicos. At Plaza del Carmen on the left , cross the square, walk along Navas, then at the small intersection you'll see the hostal in front on the left
5 mins walk
A good budget hostel
The hostal Costa Azul is located near the city hall of Granada in a very peaceful area.
Not in the touristic part (Albaizin) but believe me when you come to visit this part of the city, you feel happy not to have an hostel there as Albaizin is in a hill.
The costa azul was very clean (as all the hotels in Spain I guess) and the staff was very helpful.
The price were really good (45€ a night for a twin bed room) for granada where the average is much more higher.
Maybe not the more modern hostel but a very good choice when you look for a good location and a good price.
Unique Quality: Good location
Directions: Near the city hall of granada

Very friendly, family run hostal on a quiet pedestrian street close to the centre. Rooms clean and comfortable and not too noisy. Simple buffet breakfast is tasty too.
Easy to find and several great bars nearby a bargain at 45 Euros a night.
