“Marbella short break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We chose this Hostal because of it's location and it certainly didn't disappoint, it was so convenient for all the lovely shops and cafe's and bars.
We stayed for 4 nights. The Hostal Paco is nice clean friendly acommodation and is ideal for a short break. My wife and I had a lovely time there and we will definately be going back in the very near future. I would not hesitate to recommend a visit to Marbella and to stay at the Hostal Paco.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 it looks out over a lovely little flower filled street that has a variety of Bar...

Really lovely location in the old town. Near lots of lovely bars and restaurants. We had out 3 of the rooms. The benefit of the nice sunny rooms is that they open out onto the streets so it's quite noisy. Everything was clean - very simple basic rooms but if you want this place as a cheap and central base then it really is ideal

I have stayed with my friends on July and I have to say that my experience was amazing! It has the best location, a beautiful street just at the city center, near to all the attractions so is very easy to go to every place walking and enjoying the old city of Marbella. Also the staff was very attentive all the time, providing us all the cool "tips" of the best places to visit, and the price was very convinience for high seasson. I will definitely come back and I would really recommend to anybody that is looking to feel at home at the charm, cozy and centric hostal in Marbella.

Its basic, but clean and staff friendly - take your phrase book because youll need it. The best location ever- 5 mins from the the beach and the old town - loads of authentic tapas and bars nearby. A fab bakery a stones throw away for pastries and take away sandwiches- yumm. This is our second trip here and will continue to stay . We love the tapas bar next door for a chilled glass of cava and tapas.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Just back from a three night stay in Marbella where we stayed at Hostal Paco. It more than exceeded our expectations considering the price! We had a clean functional room with en-suite, air-conditioning and a t.v. We were located at the very rear of the hotel, making it a little dark (view onto a wall) but it was very quiet so sleeping was no problem. I believe a room at the front would be noisy as the place is surrounded by bars etc being in the old town. It is very well located for all the highlights of the main town such as Orange Square and it's only five to ten minutes walk to the beach.

There are lovely bars on either side and across the road from the hostal making it very convenient for a late night drink. Arca next door serves fab cocktails for five euros and offers limitless popcorn to have with your drinks!

I would most definitely recommend this hostel for anyone who is looking for a cheap but clean place to stay in Marbella. Would definitely return. Oh and we found the staff extremely helpful too.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are quieter but without a view. Probably better to do without the view for better...

The hostal has a great location but you can get better for the price even though its cheap. The first room we were put in smelt horrible ,at first we thought it was the floor cleaner but when it hadnt gone by the second day we asked to be moved as it smelt like sewage.At first they gave us an air freshener but when the caretaker came up to the room it was obvious there was an issue with the sewage pipe in the bathroom and we were moved to another room. This room was at the front and it was so noisy at night the patio doors didnt close properly so it sounded as though peole on the street were in the room with you! The beds were so uncomfortable in both rooms i woke up with a really painful back as we were only there for a log weekend we put up with it any longer we would of changed hotel.The staff were friendly and helpful and the hostal is. A few mins from the beach and surrounded by bars and nice restaurants,however i wouldnt stat here again personally!

Just got back from a 4 night stay at Hostal Paco.
It is basic but that is all we wanted, I much prefer this to the typical multi storey hotels with a pool etc.
Very clean, with clean towels and the room cleaned daily.
Fantastic location in the old town and fantastic value.
Would certainly stay again.
