In a good location....but that's the best part... And if you want a good nights sleep make sure to ask for a room at the back as the rooms at the front overlook the road and the traffic noise is shocking...all night with no consideration given! Also there's no air conditioning so if blow drying & styling your hair to go out is your thing then don't stay here as there's only a ceiling fan in these rooms that isn't adequate to keep the room cool....the pool at the back is pleasant and a nice area to sit... I wouldn't return here due to the lack of aircon and the noise...( there's also no room/toilet to change in once checked out while waiting to leave )

Unless you get a room overlooking the pool at the back of the hotel (and there is no guarantee of getting this - you can't pay extra for these rooms and we asked and booked months in advance but were told that it will depend on arrival) then this hostel is a poor choice. The rooms are dark and feel more like a room in a developing country, The toilet did not flush for the first night (this was fixed after reporting it) and there was no hot water for the first night (again fixed after mentioning it) there is little sound proofing so you can hear people snoring from other rooms. The hosts are only there for a few hours each day so if you have a problem then it can take a while to get it sorted. At least one other person had a problem with their room and left the next day while we were staying there. I would NOT recommend this place

Have stayed here 5 nights.....its a nice little place and owners are friendly and has so many great points.
The pool area is small but very pretty and peaceful. There is an area to sit and eat and prepare foods you bring in and fridge is stocked with water and cold drinks all are a euro and you pay when you see owner or I paid on my day of departure. The rooms are small and compact and clean.
A few things what I found wrong. Only cheap and un-comfy chairs by pool no actual sunloungers even a couple would have been good. Our room was Granada this room was terrible for noise all night and early hours and right next to front door also no mirror at dressing table only in bathroom. Air con is a fan above bed and it's really not good enough in very hot months. I personally would not stay again because of the air con. But it is a nice place if you don't care about that.

Right in the heart of Nerja and excellent location for exploring the town, bars and restaurants and also the beaches.

Not what we expected especially for the money as it was very basic. Decor could be described as rustic but cracks in the plaster and iffy light switch does not fall into my definition of rustic. Bring your own towels as those supplied are very thin and well used.

Not my style but I'm sure others would find it satisfactory. We paid over 90 Euros per night when in other locations in Spain we had paid between 55 - 70 Euros in 4 star hotels with breakfast included. Therefore from my point of view not good value.
