It is a nice hostel with great facilities like jitchen, tv, movies, books, common qreas. The room was fine and the staff were very kind and friendly. It is in the center but a bit far from the beach.. The hostel is very clean.

The staff at babia were very friendly and very helpful with anything you need. It was more like staying at someone's house than a hostel as they were very welcoming. I would definitely recommend babia to anyone travelling in malaga, the location is excellent and it is a very sociable and relaxed atmosphere.

The owners of the hostel are 2 great guys and they are organizing all the time something at their cafe downstairs, so can people from the... More
