I felt pitty for vanessa, the girl on charge of breakfast. it went pretty slow as, aparently, the information of breakfast guests didnt flow properly and she was alone serving, cleaning.... anyway, she is adorable, and will try to help. breakfast good for the money, coffee/tea, juice, corn flakes and toasts with butter/mermelade. also, just a fan in the room, which i dont know how helpful would be in summertime.
we booked the private double room, and we were asigned the one with views to the Alhambra. thats priceless to sleep with the windows open (it was quite warm) and the views in front. we went by car (and following other comments here), we called, and got info how to park for free in the surroundings (up in albaycin, but good location). also, although it is "residential-private" area, you may help yourself with the car all the way to the hostel, as they enrol you for the "stay days" as a residence not to get any fine.
