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

Dark Cave with no windows, wi-fi did not work, walls were like paper, could hear other people chatting next room. Helpful staff, would not use this place again, even thought location was good, and parking very reasonable close by ( 19€ for two nights).

Great experience of this hostel. Homely decor - great power shower in the shared bathroom and free tea and coffee in the shared kitchen. Very friendly, helpful staff. I can't fault it for the reasonable price I paid. Convenient location for Malaga centre; all sites of interest in walking distant, yet not in an overly touristy area.

Although Malaga is not the tidiest town and one would expect a hostel there to be something of the same kind, La Casa Mata is a pleasant surprise. Guys who run it really care about the place and its visitors. The hostel is comfortably located on the quiet strreet 10 minutes walk from the historical centre, nicely designed (modern optimistic...
