“my visit there left a nasty taste in my mouth...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

and it wasn't just the after effects of the barbecue I'd been invited to.
Most things about the room were good (shower excellent) and the owners very friendly, I accepted the offer of going to the barbecue and to compliment this nice gesture, gave them a hibiscus plant. When taking my leave of the hostel next morning was presented with a bill for 32 euros!!! I felt sick to my stomache (not just at the cost) but at the realisation of how I'd been taken in by all the insincere geniality leading up to it. I am a senior citizen and a solo female traveller and have stayed in many similar hostels since it is my preference but never has the like ever been an issue. Have since had a portion of this amount returned to me after a wrangle with Sergio the owner .

Room Tip: The double en-suite which leads off the kitchen area is NOT the best choice. Sounds from other trave...

This hostel is very new and the people working there are super nice with everyone. But more imporantly it's that it's very very clean, beautiful and very cheap, I would come back, also, the shower is amazing and the chicken and breakfast are cute :) and very good.

Don't be fooled by the seedy surroundings of this place as this actually is a safe neighbourhood and adds a lot of character. Whilst it's not in the heart of Malaga, it's a very short walk...about 10 to 15 minutes.
The owners try their HARDEST to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.
The showers are great, the room was comfortable. I like that we had a shower in the room. I made great use of the courtyard outside - great for cheap eats and to get the party started. Breakfast included fruit - a rarety!
The pictures don't give this place justice - it's much cuter in real life.
Thanks for a great stay.

I am a Dutch student studying in Barcelona currently. Me and a friend wanted to see the south of Spain before we go back to our counries. We decided to go to Malaga and saw this nice hostel on the net.

When we arrived we noticed that the hostel was spotlessly clean adn brand new. The owner of the place was like a Uncle to us helping us out with everything in the city.

The location was like 5 minutes walking distance from the city centre and it was really quiet. Very good if you want to have your good night sleep.

The breakfast is included in the price. It was a simple breakfast with cheese, bread, tea, coffee etc.

Rooms were a normal size and clean.

There was also a barbeque in the weekend which was really amazing. We met a lot of people and enjoyed the nice food that the owner was preparing.

I really love Malaga and I will definitely go back and stay at the same place!

Thank you!
