We at Funky have but one aim and that is to make your stay in Granada as enjoyable and satisfying as possible. As extensive globetrotters, we understand the needs of modern travelers, whether you are a backpacker in need of a comfortable bed and a hot shower after a long time on the road, or are just taking a short break and need to get away from it all for the weekend. Whatever type of traveler you are, we will try our hardest to make your stay with us a memorable as possible.
We have a location that just can't be beat. We're just a ten-minute walk from the Alhambra. You have the best of Granada nightlife and tourism at your feet. We're easily accessible from the bus or train stations and a bus from the airport leaves you practically at our doorstep.
Our staff is committed to giving you the experience you are looking for! We speak your language, we resolve your problems, we wash your clothes, we give you breakfast, we provide you with a kitchen and fridge, you have lots of bathrooms, you can keep your valuable in our free safes, you have free Internet access at any time of the day,? So that you feel secure, we even have staff on hand at the reception desk throughout the night.
Beds: just like yours at home. You'll be sleeping on good firm mattresses and, in contrast to other hostels, you can choose between dorm, twin or double. In the summertime, you can stretch out and rest while the cool air from our air conditioning units provides a pleasant relief from the intense 40ºC temperatures outside. In the wintertime, you can snuggle up with your feather down comforters in a room that has been heated throughout the day in preparation for a cold Granada night. Whatever the time of year, we can promise you will be comfortable.
We run an extensive programme of activities including adventure sports and just plain recreation. Trips to the mountains, to the beaches, skiing, horse riding and hot springs are regularly arranged. Paella is prepared every Saturday night for the less adrenaline fueled guests. Something is always going on. We can also inform you about any special events occuring in the city.
On the top floor we have a rooftop terrace. This is where most of the action takes place in the hostel, whether you are meeting up with other guests before a night out or just want to relax in the sun on a lazy afternoon. This is where everyone ends up. Starting with our breakfast in the morning and ending with our evening activities, you won't want to miss anything. You can lounge on our sofa, chat with other guests, watch our plasma TV, listen to music or have coffee and tea at any time of the day. This is the social hub of Funky backpackers. We have a bar that opens up every evening, an appetizer for what the night is certain to bring. This all boils down to a perfect ambience for getting to know our other Funky guests, an adventure whose outcome is anyone's guess.
Last but not least, the view has to be mentioned. Our rooftop terrace has a near panoramic view of the city and backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, especially beautiful during the winter. Any photographers among you certainly have a pleasant surprise in store. As one of our guests put it when he finally reached the top of the stairs and stepped out onto the terrace, 'Now I know what they were talking about'.
BREAKFAST INCLUDED, FREE INTERNET ACCESS 24/7, FREE SAFES, 24-HOUR RECEPTION, CABLE TV AND DVD MOVIES, FREE COFFEE/TEA, HEATING AND HOT WATER 24 HOURS, AIR CONDITIONING AND ROOFTOP TERRACE WITH EXCELLENT VIEWS.
