The hostel itself really quaint and colorful. There are quite a few common areas and the staff is very welcoming. They do their best to make you feel home. The only downside was the lack of plugs in the dorm... but apart from that the hostel was fine. I really enjoyed my stay there!

I was pleasantly surprised to find these folks completely welcoming of a family with a small child- the folks at Babylon were just incredible, kind and friendly and always went out of their way to help. We felt very at home here, all the amenities were great, beds super comfortable and even with the room facing the terrace/bar, we slept... More

I've got to say I was impressed by the the hostels of Malaga being friendly & helpful. 'Oasis' sent me to 'Feel' when full, who sent me to 'Babylon' when they were full too. I was only here for one night, at very short notice desperate for a bed & shower. The staff were very helpful & the place is... More

This place has something that I've never found in any other hostels. It's like your home the minute after you come in. When I arrived, from the corridor I could smell the fresh cleanliness and the scent of summer. The decoration and design are amazing, everything was simple but beautifully conjugated. I was in a 6 bed bedroom and I... More

I spent in Casa Babylon 3 nights in October 2012 and must say that it's definitely not just a place to sleep. The design of the rooms and social area makes it very easy to spend time with other people in an easy and relaxing mood. There was just a bunch of people in the hostel at that time, but... More

Im backpacking with a couple girlfriends all around Europe and we had the chance to stay in Casa Babylon. I was so impressed with the service, the nice hangout areas, and the people! I completely recommend it and even though we are just 3 girls, we felt completely safe!

This hostel is brilliant for meeting other people. It is the perfect size, with several really fantastic outdoor communal areas with sofas, hammocks, picnic benches, a perfect little roof terrace, where it is easy to meet people but also big enough to mind your own business if you want. There is also a very comfortable indoor living room with nice... More

I have just returned from a holiday in Malaga and cannot thank Casa Babylon enough for their amazing hospitality. I was travelling alone and thanks to the many communal chillout areas, I met so many other people that made my time in Malaga so enjoyable. This hostel is very social and has an entertainment/bar area where I spent alot of... More

I think this hostel has seen better days. It's not very clean. Empty bottles pile up next to the bar through out the week. Inside the hostel feels more run down than charismatic. None of the doors to the dorm rooms lock. The lockers are too small for a suitcase and could be easily broken into. The wifi is good,... More
