Reviewed 7 July 2016

This Hostel was Amazing from the minute you arrive you know this place is special, Femma and Rick are a lovely couple and owners of the Lorca they will help with anything however big or small giving you advice on the area and Nerja giving you all the best eatery's beaches and places to visit, The rooms are modern and tastefully decorated with comfy beds, the bathroom in nice with a great power shower, there is a kitchen are were all guests can use its a lovely touch with storage for food and drink and you can buy drinks all for 1 euro, the pool area is lovely a very chilled area tranquil and relaxing and a sun trap even though there was lovely beaches near by we did spend time here as it was such a lovely area to relax, the hostel is quite central and you have everything on your doorstep beaches are a ten min walk and you are spoilt for choice for which one to go two there are around 4 in this area Burriana was our choice with lovely place to eat here as well, The Balcon area is again a five to ten minute walk from the Lorca. if you love you Tapas there are tapas runs all over Nerja and some of the best tapas bars are right by the Lorca so a great place to be for this, i can not recommend this place highly enough i am not a person who will give bad reviews due to poor tea bags or found a bit of dust and gives the places a terrible review mine are truthful as all my reviews are so as i have said this place is well worth staying at you will love it

We had a superbly comfortable stay at Hostal Lorca situated centrally in Nerja old town. Our room (Seville), a balcony room overlooked the street. We were not troubled by noise at all. The facilities in the room were very good with adequate storage. The owners Femma and Rick were charming and very welcoming advising places of interest, Tapas bars and restaurants. The icing on the cake was the delightful quiet garden oasis with a small swimming pool, Overall we rate this hostal very highly and would stay again.

I stayed at Hostal Lorca for 6 nights during mid-February. While the temperatures in Nerja that week were cooler than normal, a space heater was/is provided in the room, which helped to heat up the room rather quickly. I found this hostal impeccable in as far as cleanliness (have stayed in a few in different countries) and the hosts extremely helpful. I stayed in the top room facing the back, which helped to make the room quiet for sleeping. Granted the room was/is small with limited storage space and seemingly hard towels, but these were all minor things in my opinion. Did not use the balcony or pool due to winter, but enjoyed having the kitchen and supplies at my disposal to make or simply to eat food that I brought in. Loved the central location and proximity to both the bus stop, the famous Balcon, and nearby restaurants and Mercado supermarket. Highly recommend this hostal.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Very noisy road, small room, no cooling and no where to put your things...our case lay on the floor which meant there was no room to move
The towels were as everyone warned - hard and horrible.
The sheets and pillows were very cheap.
We weren't able to sleep due to the heat, thin and cheap curtains and the very noisy street with bread deliveries starting very early in the morning.
Advice would be to look around - the owners need to spend a bit of money on hospitality...

Room Tip: Not on the road side for definite

Located in a very central location. Very clean.Beds extremely comfortable which made a huge difference as we stayed 14 nights.My only downside is that the storage space in the room is not really suitable for the longer stay.The garden and outside area was very nice with a lovely little pool and really well kept.
The owners, Rick and Femma were very welcoming and helpful.
