As in the title, Hostal Derby offers great value basic accommodation in the centre of Malaga. Often, you get great views of the port and the goings on on the Alameda Principal. Located very near great bars and restaurants as well as the Cathedral and Alcazaba and Plaza de Toros (Bull Ring). At good value prices, what's not to like....

Showed up in Malaga and went directly to the hostal, where we got a room with no problem at all. The hostal itself is easy to miss since it's on the 4th floor of a commercial building, and the sign isn't very large. The staff is very friendly, but it can be hard to communicate if you don't speak Spanish.... More

Three of us spent several days at the Derby in early March. We got very good value for the price we paid (64 E). The staff was patient as we worked on Spanish with them (no choice, since they are not comfortable in English) both in person and when I called to make the reservation. The Derby is easy to... More

At 40 euros for a double room I have to say it's definitely the best value hostal in Malaga (and it's clean!). We were disturbed by the noise of the lift, so checked out... More

Hostal Derby is an ok choice for a night, but it has suffered a lot in the last couple of years (I have stayed there a couple of times). It is VERY loud due to its location and to be honest the price for the rooms keeps going up while loosing any contact with reality, that is clean but shabby... More

We window shopped for hostels for a full afternoon. This was by far the best hostel we found, and are planning to retun soon, particularly for the price we paid.

I have stayed at the Hostal Derby on two occasions-once when I was travelling alone and the other when I was with a companion. On both occasions I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - my room was basic but clean and the staff were really friendly even though I speak limited Spanish and they spoke no English.I would recommend this Hostal...
