Im backpacking with a couple girlfriends all around Europe and we had the chance to stay in Casa Babylon. I was so impressed with the service, the nice hangout areas, and the people! I completely recommend it and even though we are just 3 girls, we felt completely safe!

This hostel is brilliant for meeting other people. It is the perfect size, with several really fantastic outdoor communal areas with sofas, hammocks, picnic benches, a perfect little roof terrace, where it is easy to meet people but also big enough to mind your own business if you want. There is also a very comfortable indoor living room with nice... More

I have just returned from a holiday in Malaga and cannot thank Casa Babylon enough for their amazing hospitality. I was travelling alone and thanks to the many communal chillout areas, I met so many other people that made my time in Malaga so enjoyable. This hostel is very social and has an entertainment/bar area where I spent alot of... More

I think this hostel has seen better days. It's not very clean. Empty bottles pile up next to the bar through out the week. Inside the hostel feels more run down than charismatic. None of the doors to the dorm rooms lock. The lockers are too small for a suitcase and could be easily broken into. The wifi is good,... More

This is probably a decent budget option for Malaga in the summer. However I stayed in January....I was looking forward to it having read good reviews but was very disappointed. The rooms were cold, the breakfast was quite small and everything looked like it needed a proper clean. The worst part was that I came away with five or six... More

This place is a good, clean and really well-located hostel for exploring Malaga. The staff were helpful and everyone there was friendly, plus they have a great outdoor bar area and roof terrace, great for sunbathing, even if, in our case it was late December!

This hostel is just like PERFECT. Perfectly located in the area of Plaza Merced (less than 10 minutes walking), and 15 minutes walking to the famous street of Larrios, this hostel got everything you may need. Breakfast included for a very attractive price, and what a breakfast : there is always some hot coffee, the, milk, bread, butter, marmelade and... More

A friend and I stayed at the Casa for a weekend after reading some reviews. It certainly lived up to them with friendly staff and a very chilled out atmosphere. Our room was pristine and the lounge area at the back was great for relaxing after a long day exploring the city. You can also get good beer for a... More

Stayed here for two nights. Staff were very friendly with a laid back attitude. Food was great and cheap beers. The courtyard and terrace a great places to chill out after a long day. This place certainly has character. Would stay there again if I was ever back.

It was the first time we went to Malaga for our annual school trip and we stayed at Casa Babylon. The staff there are really friendly and kind to the children. They are patient with them and they are cheerful. After a long day out it was a welcome back to the chilled out atmosphere that greeted us. We loved... More
