Malka is a fab retreat from the travelling world where you can enjoy amazing scenery, yoga, meditiation, great breakfast, good wifi in a clean environment. Highly recommend it and special thanks to the owner who dropped me to the centre of town to get a taxi when the one I booked didn't show up. A lovely place to enjoy Tilcara... More

I would totally recommend this hostel ! It's located on a hill and it's a very cosy and quiet place. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is really good. The owners are really nice and can give you information and advice about touristic places.

This place was indeed very relaxed and comfortable. We mainly stayed in the hotel and the nice garden. We don't understand why everybody writes about the long way to get to the place, we found it was very close and easy to find. Once you are there, feel happy to relax. Nice rooms and nice kitchen.

This is definitely a special place. There are several options going from cabanas to hostel dorms. In comparison to the usual breakfast around the area this really has a much higher standard, good bread, fresh orange juice and as much as you want. The kitchen is well equipped. The hostel is placed by the hills offering a good view of... More

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
