Excellent value accomodation in the charming old town. In a quiet street, easy wallking distance to the seafront or the coach station. Warm welcome, very helpful with information too. Spotlessly clean, friendly, safe. Pleasant neighbourhood. There is also a very good, typical restaurant attached to the Hostal; delicious food and a good wine list. Both thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here for 7 nights and can not fault the place. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the owners are welcoming. We even received some complimentary fruit and a bottle of wine which is rather great for a budget hostal. Wi-fi connection was speedy and free. Hostal is located in a quite residential street in the old quarter of... More

This was one of the best budget places i've stayed in. The room was big and clean and there was free wifi. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The waiter even walked with me to the nearby taxi square carrying my bag. The location was perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good... More

We stayed just one night. The hotel is situated in a beautiful and quiet street in the old town centre. Our room was spacious and clean, but did not have that local or personal touch we found in other hostals along the coast. The staff is very kind.

I stayed in Hostal El Gallo for the first time on a solo trip to Marbella in order to try and gain some experience in speaking the language. Initially when I booked to stay in El Gallo I wanted a cheap and cheerful accommodation just to put my head down in at night but I was thrilled when I arrived... More

Excellent location (in the centre of Marbella), 8 min waliking from the sea side and very friendly personal. We had a double room at the last floor (2rd), with a nice balcony and an air conditioning. In other words, great service and for convenient prices :)

I have stayed at El Gallo many times and every time I find some very simple improvements made to make my visit more comfortable. This time dispensers for soap and separate shampoo had been added in the showers= additional lighting in the room and a really good breakfast menu ranging from the famous English bacon /egg/toast / coffee/orange juice to...

The hostal is really nice! The location is great - in a quiet street in the old town of the city - close to the restaurants, but quiet small street near the old castle. The rooms are comfortable, ours even had a nice terrace (but be careful, as the low door gave us head bumps). The owner is also very... More

Located very near the old town centre, very quiet road, very comfortable room and clean. Was a birthday and anniversary and we were surprised to receive a bottle of cava. Certainly recommend this hostal and would definitely return.
