Nerja was recommended as a less developed coastal town (compared to Torremolinos or Malaga), and the Hostal Marissal as a good central hotel. It certainly is, with a prime location right by the Balcony of Europe. The hotel itself actually looks out onto the large square, which is vehicle free (we parked our car in the underground parade nearby for... More

Best time ever in Nerja. Hostal Mariska is right in the main town square, room was spacious, bathroom spacious, very clean, reasonable price, staff great. Right next to the beach and out the door to shopping and restaurants. Just loved it.

We got married in Nerja in July and stayed in hostal Marissal for six nights. This hostal is lovely and just what we needed for the week of the wedding. The location is just perfect, the room rates are very reasonably priced and the staff are fantastic. They were so helpful with anything that we needed. We love Nerja and... More

I Travel to Nerja every year and i must admit that location wise you cannot get any better than this. This is right in the center of the Nerja Hotspot and 50 Meters from the beach. The rooms are surprisingly quiet and clean and tidy. They are not the biggest of rooms but what else can you expect from a... More

Excellent little hotel rather than a hostel so please do not be put off by the title. Had an overnight stay here recently and found the staff to be polite and very helpful. We had a sea view from our room which was just perfect! I would recommend this little gem. The surrounding area was beautiful with some excellent little... More

Was unsure with the title of Hostel and it not having parking, but I'd only gone for a night to see friends who were holidaying at the Hotel next door. I needn't have worried it was a great little Hotel rather than Hostal. Friendly staff, lovely clean comfortable rooms which overlooked the sea. I followed signs for Balcon parking and... More

Great location, hotel was basic standard but had everything we needed. Attended a wedding at the Balcon so it was a perfect base for a few days. No pool but it is right beside the beach so was not an issue. The front of the hotel opens onto the main square so really great place to sit and a have... More
