Wonderful accommodation in the city centre with a great story about the house as well. We had the room at the top floor, which is an idyllic room a nice view of the rooftops of the city centre. Although the house was built in the 1830s you don't really realise it and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Big... More

Very simple, clean and quaint hostel ideally located in centre of city. We stayed in the very top double room in the hostel (#11). The only downside of the hostel is the narrow/steep stairs to get to our room and you have to come back down each time you need to use the shared bathroom. This is the only minor... More

The best about this hostel is its location: just a few minutes from the city center but on a small quiet street. The hostel doesn't offer any food except tea and coffee, but there is a restaurant in the neighbouring building and Dia supermarket in 5 minutes walking, and the hostel has a kitchen. Anyway, it's not a problem to... More

We stayed here for a week. Me and my boyfriend. Room was damp and smelled of cigarettes it took 4 days to air it out. Noise. All the time if not from the street so from someone banging the door or chatting in reception. Shower so small impossible to fit, everything needs upgrading: pipes old and stinks, walls going black... More

Nice staff, lovely rooms, great location and good views from the big rooms. A little difficult to find if you have no map 😉 however the good people of malaga were more than happy to help us out with directions. Maybe give the downstairs area a miss if you aren't a fan of passive smoking

I was very impressed how nice this place was! The staff members were incredibly friendly and helpful. We have got some great tips for our dinner--doing tapas-hopping bars. We've received a city center map straight after we checked in and the guys explained very nice and careful what/where could be visited for the time we had (less then 24 hours).... More

The building and rooms are very cosy. It is a basic hostel, with a good price/quality. The location is excellent and we were lucky to park nearby.
