“The perfect place to enjoy Malaga ! Highly recommend it !!”
Reviewed June 1, 2011

Everything is great about this place :
- the location (30 sec to main street, 1 min from buses and taxis station, 2 min to the supermarket and 10 min to the beach -- although it's a nice and quiet street)
- the rooms that are spacious and super clean
- very good value for the price
- and the owner is so nice and helpful.
It's the second time we come to this place and will certainly come again !

I absolutely recommend this place. Prices are low and rooms are very clean and nice. Clima at night. :D
Great location! (Watch out for adresses when looking for accomodation in Malaga, cause it's a BIG City!)
It was always FULL while our staying, so book it much earlier :)
Thank You Caroline for being so helpful! You're the best!

Stayed here for one night 1st June. Lovely old appartment block with character in the centre. Rooms are basic but clean. The lady who owns the place is very hospitable - she even showed me to the bus stop!

Stayed there for 4 nights and can recommend it if you are looking for a central and clean budget hostal in Malaga. Close to public transport to all destinations, quiet but in the city center, relatively close to the beach. Very clean. Very friendly and helpful owner who give great advice where to go and where not. Cafes and Bars are just in front of the door for breakfast and lunch.

This place was fine, no frills but nothing wrong. There is not too much atmosphere, they had a school staying the day before and it is just such a place that caters to school classes (super basic, but rooms spacey enough, beds a little prickly and not too comfy but fine). The owner is very friendly and communication was fine (she says most in Spanish, but that was no big problem). It has one shared balcony with views over the city, and was good for our overnight stay in Malaga.
Location wise it is perfect, you are right in the old centre, shops, market, cafes and ruins all around the corner. Would recommend the stay if you just need a place to crash after walking around all day.

We chose this hostel because it is right in the center of the old city, in easy walking distance of the all the things we wanted to see (Cathedral, Picasso Museum, Alcazaba). It is in a side street off Calle Larios which is the main artery of the area, pedestrianized with all the cafes, restaurants and designer shops. It is quite near Malagueta, the town beach, which is about a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride away.
It is in a traditional tall building but does have a small lift, which is a reason we chose it over a slightly cheaper hostel nearby as we had heavy bags. The room was very clean and light with a balcony overlooking the street, also an ensuite bathroom which was not the case in the slightly cheaper rooms in this area, so we felt it was good value.
The owner speaks English - again unusual in the cheaper hostels- and is very helpful as we found after checking out. We had been stupid (or tired) enough to leave one suitcase in the car, parked in the nearby Plaza Marina. Even though it was not visible, thieves had broken in and stolen it. My spare credit card AND my list of cancellation numbers was in the case!! We went back to the hostel and the owner let me use her internet to look up the cancellation number and her phone to ring the card company, which saved me a lot of stress.
It was 40 euros for the double room when we stayed. There is no dining room at the hostel, but a bakery round the corner serves coffee, rolls, sandwiches and cakes so it is easy to get breakfast.
I would definitely recommend this hostel for good value, service, and convenient location in Malaga.
