 Get to know Granada (no more

Granada is known mainly for the massive Alhambra and the Moorish architectural influences throughout the city. The city has an excellent public transit system relying primarily on buses. Although the city can get quite hot during the summer months, the city attempts to alleviate the heat with hanging canvas over most pedestrian walkways to create plenty of shade.

If you are visiting for the Alhambra, it is required to book in advance. You can book the day before in most cases, although you may have to visit fairly early in the morning or in the middle of the day with the scorching heat as the 9am-1pm time slots sell out quickly. Make sure that you allow yourself plenty of time to actually get up to the Alhambra, as it is located on top of a very large hill and can be difficult to find the correct route up through the winding streets.

When looking for a Granada hostel, pay specific attention to the availability of air conditioning. You will see many other bleary eyed travelers who were put too many into a room with no cooling and as such suffered without sleep.

In general the best place for travelers is within the winding roads of the area due west of the Alhambra. The majority of hostels in Granada are located in this area, and although it may be hard to find initially you will find the atmosphere hard not to love. There is never an overwhelming number of tourists in the city and as such you will find hostels do not book full very often.
