We visited earlier this week with a group of friends. Lovely view of the nearby Alcazabilla and Malaga at sunset.
Bar men were attentive and drinks well priced. We had gin and tonics and a bottle of wine. There were other groups present.
Weather was windy and cold. We were given blankets to keep us warm as the wind was icy cold.

Brilliant place, centrally located. Very clean and spacious. Stayed here numerous times, always my default choice when in Malaga. Roof top bar is superb with magnificent views and ok prices on beer. €2.50 a bottle. Staff are super friendly and helpful. 5*****

Stayed in a 6 person dorm with private bathroom for 3 nights.

The room and bathroom were clean upon check-in and was cleaned everyday I was there. There was a small balcony that looked out into Calle Alcazabilla and it's many cafes and restaurants. No chairs, so the balcony wasn't that useful. Instead of curtains, the windows had shutters which did a great job of blocking out the light and noise from the streets below.

Each bed has a locker under the which is more than large enough to hold any backpack. The hostel provided smaller set of lockers (which a key) in the room, which is large enough for a small/medium sized rucksack. Each guest is assigned a bed for the dorm, so no trying to guess which bed to take.

Aside from the many places to eat and drink out in the main street, there's also a restaurant and bar in the same building as this hostel. The rooftop bar is amazing with views of the Alcazaba and Calle Alcazabilla. Both of which are beautifully it up at night.

I stayed in Room 15, on the first floor and the lounge/kitchen area was also nice and clean. The "kitchen" area had a microwave, a fridge, plates and cutlery. There wasn't any cooking facilities as such.

The Wifi worked perfectly, is fast and available throughout the hostel.

The staff were helpful and friendly throughout the stay.

Location wise. it's pretty much in the centre of Malaga and perfect. Minutes walk to the Roman theatre and museums of Malaga and pretty much at the foot of the Castle and Alcazaba (you'll have to do the climbing to the castle yourself!).

Overall, happy with the stay with nothing to complain about.

I stayed here in October / November and a group of us took three rooms. It was a great choice. Firstly I should mention that the title 'hostel' is doing the hotel a disservice. I appreciate that they do offer hostel type shared rooms but the rooms that we had were very much of a three star hotel quality. Modern, spacious, lovely bathrooms, good design with mid century modern touches. Mine also had a balcony.

The location is superb. You are next to the Picasso museum / cathedral. Head to Plaza de la Merced (5 mins) and you will find a lovely square with a wealth of restaurants. Or simply step out of the hotel and you will find a multitude of options in the lovely winding streets behind Calle Larios.

The hotel also benefits from an excellent roof top bar with stunning views of this lovely city.

I didn't try the restaurant although it looked great. It's a shame that they don't seem to offer a breakfast option given that they have the facilities. That said, it took us all of two minutes to find a local place.

In short, great location, lovely building, great roof top bar and very reasonable prices.

Muchísimas gracias, todo estaba muy bueno. Pero mereces el título hotel ni hostel!

Only went there for a drink.
They got a very nice terrace opened late at night with an amazing view on the city and the Alcazaba.
They propose very nice cocktails. Prices are pretty good. You can go for a beer if you don't want to spend to much.
