El Granado Hostel

Our top-rated hostel is a social place to meet people from all over the world, get in contact with different cultures and practice languages. Take a look at the reviews left by past volunteers here on Worldpackers, check out our website and Instagram/Facebook profiles!
Granada is an old university town of great cultural importance with easy access to open-air activities and thriving student nightlife. Overlooking the town and at the feet of snow-capped mountains lies the Alhambra, an old morish fortress categorized as a world heritage site by the UNESCO. We are located in the centre of the city.

I'm Marco, an Italian guy who loves travelling, languages, hostels and Granada. Our wonderful team will make you feel welcome and at home from the moment you step in the hostel! We want our volunteers to feel comfortable and have fun. And to have an amazing work-exchange experience. There's room for everyone's ideas and we try to make a motivated, integrated team where everyone is equal.

My experience at El Granado was absolutely amazing. From the staff to the other volunteers were the best companions I could have asked for. They definitely became my family away from home. If you are thinking about volunteering this is definitely a great option. You will have the chance to learn new skills, meet people all over the world and also you’ll be living in the amazing city that is Granada.

My experience at El Granado was just great!
As bartender i had 3 days of in a row and this gave me chance to move and visit other cities on my days off, the hostel is however very nice and located in the center of Granada.
The job was pretty easy and enjoyable, Marco and Roberto are willing to listen and always open to consider different solutions so you have chance to express yourself.
The best part was definitely people: each member of the staff is incredibly nice and helpful and also the other volunteers were so.
I will definitely come back to visit el Granado family, thanks to all <3
