Stayed here with my friends in June. Location is perfect, 15 min walk from the train station or to the bus terminal. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are tidy and neat, though some of them do not have direct access to Windows, but they have mobile condition blowers. Wi-fi is OK. You have 5 minutes walk to the... More

The building and rooms are very cosy. It is a basic hostel, with a good price/quality. The location is excellent and we were lucky to park nearby. The staff is very friendly and she helped us with many things. This was absolutely superb! The bathroom was shared, which was in our case no problem, since we stayed for just 1... More

It's a place to spend a night cheaply and in the morning eat a breakfast in a common kitchen and run around the city or stay on a beach. No luxuries, no breathtaking views, but clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. We had a room with a bathroom, which you might consider a good idea especially during... More

I stayed in this place twice - located in a lovely little alleyway in Malaga city center. During my first stay, even though I showed up at the hotel outside the official hours, the gentleman at the reception showed up within 20 minutes of calling him up. The location is fantastic, wifi was very good. They also have a kitchen... More

This place is located down a small alleyway. The room I stayed in was very small with a single bed, almost like a prison cell. The shower and bathroom was right opposite my room and there was a small kitchen down the hall with a few amenities. The guy working here was very friendly and he drew on a map... More

Perfectly good for a central base , especially if you are on a tight budget. There is cheap secure parking nearby , and the bars around were more local and authentic. There's a kitchen with facilities and a fridge so you can buy provisions and make a snack or breakfast and meet other guests informally. Staff are very friendly ,... More

If you want cheap clean accommodation then this is the place. I went there with three buddies and checked into a room with three single beds. You can tell that they must have refurbished the place recently as all the walls were recently painted with the beds being new and furnishings looking sparkly, exactly as the pictures portray. Great hotel... More

It is hidden in a little alley, but it is very close to all the things you will want to see. The rooms are very cool with Ikea-like furniture and colorful ambiance. It is cheap to stay. The rooms are big! And staff was very,very nice.

We arrived on friday morning at the airport - we rented a car (don't do that - very difficult parking and in the historic center you are not allowed to drive so we didn't really use it - there are several trains and busses which drive to the center) You found the hostel very easy and at the reception there...

Down a quiet street close to the centre of Malaga La casa Mata Central feels more like a hostel than a hotel but that’s certainly no bad thing. The rooms are light and airy with brightly coloured feature walls making the whole place feel rather fun. There’s a small kitchen facility where you can use the hotels teas and coffee’s... More
