As in the title, Hostal Derby offers great value basic accommodation in the centre of Malaga. Often, you get great views of the port and the goings on on the Alameda Principal. Located very near great bars and restaurants as well as the Cathedral and Alcazaba and Plaza de Toros (Bull Ring). At good value prices, what's not to like....

Showed up in Malaga and went directly to the hostal, where we got a room with no problem at all. The hostal itself is easy to miss since it's on the 4th floor of a commercial building, and the sign isn't very large. The staff is very friendly, but it can be hard to communicate if you don't speak Spanish....

I have stayed at the Hostal Derby on two occasions-once when I was travelling alone and the other when I was with a companion. On both occasions I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - my room was basic but clean and the staff were really friendly even though I speak limited Spanish and they spoke no English.I would recommend this Hostal...
