Hiking

Welcome to hikers paradise! The area around Granada is blessed with plenty of wonderful hikes from easy afternoon walks, starting in front of the hostel, to high alpine hikes in the Sierra Nevada. 

Sierra Nevada 

The Sierra Nevada is the highest mountain range on Spain mainland with up to 3.482 m (Mulhacén). Besides amazing views it offers a lot of possibilities, like summer and winter hiking, mountainbiking, skiing and mountaineering, even some ice climbing.

More information coming soon…

Canyoning

There are amazing canyoning opportunities in the barrancos around Granada. You can find everything from easy and short routes to advanced trails that will test your limits.

Beaches

The Costa Tropical on the Mediterranean is about one hour drive away from the hostel. It`s a nice opportunity to relax in the sun and, even on some winter days, take a dip in the sea. Or, have a beer in one of the chiringuitos (beach bars).

More information coming soon…

Water sports

Although Granada itself is known for mountains and rocks, there are also many options to enjoy water sport activities. Like surfing, scuba diving, windsurfing and kiting, at the Mediterranean and lakes nearby.

More information coming soon…

Location

The climbing hostel is located at the entrance of the Sierra de Huetor, in Cogollos Vega, a small village about 20 Minutes north of Granada. 

Outdoor activities start directly at our hostel – for example, the “Peñon de la Mata” hike leading to Cogollos` highest mountain. From the terrace you can see many mountain bikers passing by everyday on their way to the natural park. Not to mention, the huge climbing sector around the corner 😉

Hostel

What to say about the hostel? It`s just the perfect place for outdoor lovers and climbers like us! And, for everybody who is not a fan of normal touristy places and 5 star hotels, but who likes to share nice times with nice people.

We have a pretty, Andalusian style main house, with a huge garden full of trees and plants, as well as a nice terrace with a view over Cogollos and Alfacar mountains.  One of Granadas best climbing areas is right outside of our house and we have the still to-be-bolted rock wall in our garden. You can enjoy your morning coffee with a rock view, how amazing is that!?

We are looking forward to having you here and sharing a Cerveza, or two 🙂

Accommodation

At the moment we have two bunk bed dorms, for six people each. We provide bedding and sheets, as well as a towel. Later we are also planning on double bed rooms, camping tents, maybe cave camping, etc.

Facilities

We have a fully equipped community kitchen for use by our guests, as well as a large comfortable community room. And, of course, we have a lot of space for everybody in the garden, a nice terrace and patio, and a pool. Shared bathrooms can be found inside and out, as well as free WiFi.
