We stayed in the cabana - it was great for 2 couples (we flipped a coin to see who would get the double bed). The kitchen was relatively well equipped - we were able to easily cook a meal while we were there. The breakfasts were adequate - It would have been good to have a bit more protein options.... More

First: the lady who runs this- so helpful. We couldn't get our cheap little rental car up the hill so she did it for us! And she recommended us a place for dinner which was superb (El Nuevo Progreso). Then: this place is really beautiful. The cabañas are cool, relaxing and tastefully decorated. Hammocks outside. Pretty gardens. Friendly golden Labradors... More

Well before Tilcara was named as a UNESCO world heritage site, the owners of Malka had built their dream into a reality in the form of this hostel, and as a guest I could tell. Juan and Teresa knew enough about restaurants, sites and activities in Tilcara and the Quebrada de Humahuaca to have kept us happily busy for much... More

We spent several days here and loved it. Teresa and Juan were very nice and the site is perfect. The view is spectacular while eating the simple yet elegant breakfast. Good value for money while visiting this area.

The service and the welcoming were amazing. The place where it was located was also incredible. We loved the little cabanas, we felt at home. Everything was very clean. It's one of the few hostel in my trip in the North West of Argenitina where i thought I would have liked to stay a bit longer to enjoy the place.... More

Malka is the best hostel we visited in north Argentina. The place itself is incredibly peaceful and comfortable with view on mountains and very nice little spots to sit down / lounge and chill. The quality of the service and the cleanness is remarkable not to mention that Teresa and Juan are the most lovely people, helpful and very calm.... More

We bicycled over the Andes and were in need of some down days, this was the perfect place. Tranquilo location above town nestled in a shady grove on the hilside. Owners were sweet, after 3 months biking South America I'd say it was my favorite place to stay. If it had been outside of Iruya instead of Tilcara I would... More

We were curious to see for ourselves how much of a 'special place' Malka is, as one of the guidebooks put it. And we confirm. The property is immaculately maintained by the helpful and sweet owners. The shared room we stayed was very clean and functional. It provides extra blanket and sheets for the colder nights in the mountains. The... More

This was the nicest place in Argentina I stayd for a modest prize. The rooms. specially the cabanas are big and beautifully decorated, but also the single room I got later was very homely. There are kettles and hairdryers in the room. And the owners are ever so friendly. I really felt so good there. There is a beautiful big... More

This hostel is beautifully located with stunning views over the mountains. The buildings are set in a well maintained large garden where you can sit and relax. I stayed in a cabin, which was a bit dark but well insulated against the heat of the day and the cold of the night. It was spotlessly clean and provided with everything... More
