We have just come back from El Gallo after having a wonderful week. This Hostel is welcoming very clean and staff helpful We had Bedroom 6 - double room with a terrace which was wonderful in the evening to have a drink it was like being Mary Poppin`s amongst the chimney pots - They also has a good restaurant well worth a visit for tea and breakfast
When arrived into Malaga get the bus to Marbella which is a cheap transfer which takes you straight to the bus station, then get a taxi about 5 euros to the old town, they will drop you off and its a short walk to the Hostal El Gallo , if I can do it anyone can .
Marbella front has a wonderful walk way all the way to Puerto Banus, we hired bikes for the day which was great especially when the sun shone, got to Puerto Banus and put the bikes with a chain in a bike store.
Marbella has many lovely restaurants on the front so many to choose from, our favourite beach bar was " The Palms " which did great salads and a cold beer.
Then in the evening Medium Rare in the old town, and across from there they do a fabulkous Sangri the best I have drunk. The best place for Football and all sports " The Tavern " the host there were great with plenty of chat worth a visit.
We found the Old Town great fun as there were so many restaurants in little street tucked away with little bars we never made it to all of them ??.
If you like shopping the Old Town has plenty of shops.
Well worth a visit and we will be back to El Gallo again , give it a try but book early.

Room Tip: Try and get Room ^ this one has the Terrace

I have stayed at El Gallo many times and every time I find some very simple improvements made to make my visit more comfortable. This time dispensers for soap and separate shampoo had been added in the showers= additional lighting in the room and a really good breakfast menu ranging from the famous English bacon /egg/toast / coffee/orange juice to a simple continental style meal=all for a very good price. The standard of food/cleanliness in the hostal is magnificent and the whole family are most kind and make the stay a most pleasant experience. I am greatly looking forward to my next stay. Many thanks guys!!!

The hostal is really nice! The location is great - in a quiet street in the old town of the city - close to the restaurants, but quiet small street near the old castle.
The rooms are comfortable, ours even had a nice terrace (but be careful, as the low door gave us head bumps).
The owner is also very kind and assisted us in finding the best place to park our car (this is impossible on the street before the hostal, as it is really small).
The rooms are equipped with TV, good wi-fi connection, comfortable bathroom.
The beach is 10-minute walk from the hostal, through the charming small streets of the old town!
I would definitely recommend this hostal, especially if you plan a short 1 or 2-nights visit in Marbella, as it offers perfect location to feel the atmosphere of the old town and a great value for money!

Located very near the old town centre, very quiet road, very comfortable room and clean. Was a birthday and anniversary and we were surprised to receive a bottle of cava. Certainly recommend this hostal and would definitely return.

Room Tip: One with a terrace.

We prolonged our stay twice. This is an honest place. The owners and staff are very kind and accommodating people. The hostal is clean and tidy. It is located in a very charming street with traffic limitation in the old-town of Marbella. The hostal offers excellent value for money. The attached restaurant is simple but good. We ate there several times during our stay and enjoyed it a lot. We would always stay there again and recommend it to our friends.
