“Lovely, value for money, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2011

I stayed here for two nights with two connecting rooms, one with ensuite, the other with a sink in the room. Lovely place to stay. The location could not be beaten. Right next to the best street in town. The woman who owns the place was really nice and helpful. I'm learning Spanish and she spoke slowly and clearly to me, and communicated fine in English as well. The beds were comfy and there was a TV in the room with cable, and the shower was good although you had to slip the hand-held shower head in between a DIY string jobby so you didnt have to hold it (which was no big deal at all).
There was a little lift so the second floor wasn't an issue. Nice balcony overlooking the street as well. Oh and she made our beds each day! Definitely recommended!!

I went to the Hostal La Palma for a solo trip, 7 nights. This is a great place for backpackers or low-budget travellers, even with children or in couple! A safe and clean place, excellent location to enjoy the city (tourism attractions and beaches), not expensive and really nice, helpful multilangual staff! I enjoy my stay very much, and I would definitly recommend this quiet and humble hotel for people looking for a good quality-price range. You'll be in the middle of everything you need, from buses to restaurants and grocerie stores! As a solo-woman-traveller, I was to the right place! Thanks a lot :)

The place did need a bit of a clean in my opinion. We only stayed a night before we flew back home so didnt mind too much. Good location, helpful owner (kept our luggage safe and met us to when we needed to collect it to go to the airport).

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.
