“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I spent 2 nights at the hostel with two friends in a triple room. The room wasn't too big but it had its own bathroom. Room was equiped with AC which is very important during the summer in Marbella. The best thing of this hostel is the location in Marbella city center.

We stayed only one night in this hostel but I can say that it was very clean and comfortable. You don't expect much from hostel, but this was a pleasant surprise. We had private rooms with toilet and shower, there were even bath amenities. The beds were comfortable. In the morning we had a good continental breakfast for 5 EUR, which is a great price for the variety that we got. The owners very very helpful and advised us the places we can eat. Overall, it's a good hotel for short stay.

We stayed here as a couple for a week, and the best part of our holiday was this gem of Marbella. The hotel is located in the very stylish old town, 5 mins walk from the sea. The room we stayed in was nice and spotless. But the best thing was the staff. The hotel is a family run business and you can feel this atmosphere every time you enter the restaurant. We ended up having long conversations with the lovely receptionist girl and rather than going out we watched football match with the family. All I can say is to thank you very much, we will definitely go back again!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

This hostel is very good value for money. It's five minutes from the beach and a few minutes from old town Marbella. The place is spotlessly clean and the owners helpful and friendly. The hostel is situated in a pretty street adorned with lots of lovely flowers. Light sleepers beware because the walls are paper thin and you can be kept awake by others snoring, talking etc. My solution to the problem was to wear ear-plugs. I didn't hear a thing once they were in. My experience was positive and I would definitely recommend this hostel.

We had stayed here before but things change over time and you are not sure if going back is the right thing to do.
we took our son and daughter in law with us this time -their first visit.
A great success. Just as welcoming and lovely firm beds. tons of hot water too.
A great place to stay and it won't break the bank.

Room Tip: One room has small shower - not for the chunky!
