This has to be one of the best bargains around. The "superior" room at 45 euros with a private balcony, view of the sea, quiet, and only steps away from the Balcony of Europe. Hope to be able to return again. But shhhhh... Don't tell anyone and spoil the secret!!

Cannot fault anything with the accommodation. For a hostal its brilliant, my friend and I stayed in room 106 with a balcony, lovely room. Even though it is very close to everything, you are not disturbed by any noise from outside of the hostal.

This is a small hotel located near the Balcon de Europa - associated with the more upscale Mena Plaza nearby. Room had a great balcony with a view of the sea. Excellent location near the beach, the main plaza and lots of restaurants. Very inexpensive. Downside was small room size, but worth the trade off. Limited hours but you can... More

The location is tops. Just 1-2min walking to the main town square of Nerja and Balcon de Europa. The hotel is cozy, small, and has the feeling of a home run business. My room was great. It faced the walking street and had it had two balcony doors giving good light. Clean, tidy and rather large. Price was low, we... More

Friendly hotel staff and great value. The room we stayed in had a small private balcony overlooking the ocean. The room did not have AC but the ceiling fan did the trick in early June. We enjoyed Nerja so much that we stayed here an extra night upon arrival.

Right in the middle of Nerja, sixty seconds from the Balcon de Europa. Really friendly staff and a nice building. It's pretty basic however it has all you need and is very safe. En-suite was good and clean, bed was comfy.

We lived there 2 weeks with my daughter and it was nice. But you should discuss the rooms in advance because they are really very different. Some look in the little garden inside and have large terrace but others can be good but looks to the noisy street. The location is really in the hart o Nerja - just behind... More

There were some good points: 1. The position is fairly central and this hostal is well placed for nearby beaches which were probably the best in Nerja. It can be a good base. 2. We had air conditioning for most of our stay. 3. You can get a good sea view from balcony rooms with good sunlight - but we... More

This hostal is located in a perfect position in the centre of Nerja on a quiet, traffic free street. The rooms are spotlessly clean, are a good size and the balcony rooms over look the sea and a lovely garden area - perfect.
