Residencia Malaga Backpackers
Ranked #30 of 36 Malaga B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Friendly staff, very well equipped communal room with free use of PC's. Free Wifi and a very cheap shop nearby for drinks etc.
Again, not central (3km from centre) but is a nice walk there or you can get a bus if you wish (very easy to find).
For 7 euros a night you can't compain! If you want to spend an extra 4-5 euros per night you can probably get a centrally located hostel which is preferable but with you being out of the centre you see a lot more and get the cheaper places which are a lot more friendly.

Not the best hostel I have visitied. If possible avoid it. Book another one with the same or more money.
The location is far from centre and not the best to walk alone. The room was not clean and the room door could be opened with any actually.

I'll say this: go too this hostel only if you can't find any other place. there's nothing very much wrong with it besides it's far (3 km from the center) and mosquitoes would eat you alive during the night. it's simply the fact that you can stay for the same money in cleaner hostel with better service.

Room Tip: for the same money you can stay nearer the center in better hostel

This hostel is really cheap. There is a nice really big common area, it was a good area to hang out in, easy to meet lots of travelers there and share stories. The kitchen is well equipped. They usually organize parties in the evening, the hostel staff manage the bar, and they are all fun and friendly. It’s close to the beach, the train and the bus. The free internet is nice! There was a really good vibe here, a good atmoshphere.

I stayed here with a large group on a warm november evening.
We were greeted as we walked in by a smell of Urine and Damp. After sitting down and looking at a bra hanging from a wall and some assorted Che Guevra posters i noticed some computers tucked away in a corner and a large self service kitchen.
There was a large public TV and a nice number of tables.
The worst part of the Hostel after the smell and cleanliess was the trek up to the rooms.
If you are on the top floor, it takes a good few minutes of hard clibing to reach your room.
The rooms were assorted sizes and were not the cleanest i have seen.
A reosanable stay, but i am happy it was only for one night!
