Its a basic hostel, friendly and clean, but what really marks the hostel as special is the location - slap bang in the middle of Malaga old town. Rooms are basic but clean, the fittings a little dated, but if you are just looking for somewhere to good value to sleep and have as a base for exploring the city,...

Simple but comfortable accommodations with very good rates. For two travelers my room would have been a great bargain, but just for one person it was still pretty reasonable. Be prepared for many flights of stairs, or you can take the tiny elevator. Great location close to the wonderful local market and very near shopping and restaurants. Easy walk to...

A wonderful place to stay in Malaga. Located directly in the heart of the city, and the personnel are very friendly, especially the owner Caroline, a lovely lady, she made me feeling really home, and she was always there for help. The place is very clean and have every thing you need, and the location is just perfect, directly in...

It can be difficult to locate, but once you notice the sign, then ring the bell just labelled "Hostel" in the middle of the bank of buttons. You'll be directed up to the third floor. Ring again, and the lady who owns/runs the Hostel is really lovely and friendly. In fact, I wish we had had a little more time...

This isn't the smartest place to stay but the room we had was big enough, hanging space, en suite, large double bed and a small balcony. Plenty of hot water, clean towels every day. There's also a roof top space to enjoy the sun and meet other travellers. No breakfast but kitchen spaces. Just off Marques de Larios and lots...

I really loved to stay in this very central hostal, the owner Carolina is a very kind, helpful and lovely lady. This is close to everything, all the touristic places and nice restaurants and shops. The accommodation is simple but very good money for value. The only problem I had is to try to sleep in a little as they...

I had a really great stay. Room was simple, but beautiful light in the mornings. Incredible outdoor patio on 4th floor by kitchen for amazing twilight with a glass of wine. Location couldn't be better. The women who runs the place (I didn't get her name) was very nice and very welcoming. Nice art on the walls. Cool older building....

It is a very nice place, in the city center of Malaga, very quiet, tidy and colorful( it had some interesting decorations, mostly works by Picasso or local stuff). The price was ok, bathroom was clean and big enough. They have a nice terrace with beautiful flowers. Unfortunately in August it is way too hot, event in the room where...

In essence I would stay here again.... BUT it would have to be in a quiet room at the back f the building. It gets very noisy during the night. apart from that it offers great value, cleanliness, facilities and proprietor. Gorgeous ancient building; full of history and original architectural features. Location-wise for the attractions of Malaga - unbeatable. Its...
