Score from 798 reviews Very good
charming hosts willing to speak slowly and clearly to accommodate my rusty Spanish - clean, comfortable, entirely satisfactory - bus to airport from just across the road
It’s in a fairly central location right next to the market and lots of little stores plus only a 9-minute walk to city hall, behind which is an elevator to visit Alcazar of Malaga. You need another 20-minute walk up the big hill/small mountain to get to Castillo de Gibralfaro, which was the best view ever of all of Malaga. The owner, who is a French lady, was nice and welcoming, giving us a map with recommended places to visit. There’s a shared terrace on the fourth floor with a shared kitchen, including a microwave. It also has a washing machine in case you need it. We had a nice small balcony with a view of the small street beneath.
The actual closest beach, La Malagueta is a good 20-25 minute walk away. The bed has springs inside you’ll be sure to feel all night and is not even put on a solid frame. In other words, when you lean back, the bed literally tips over, and the same goes for sitting on the edge, and I’m not a really big person at about 180 pounds. Our private bathroom didn’t have shampoo or body gel but did have hand soap. There was neither a blow dryer nor an iron with an ironing board inside. We also had a small fridge in our room, but it didn’t seem to be working. Some floors have heat, which comes from above via air, but it didn’t seem to make a difference on our floor, which did. The shower head was loose, so it flipped upside down and started spraying water everywhere. The shower wall was falling over, so I had to position it back in place. The bed linens didn’t smell so good or bad either. I don’t know… They didn’t seem so clean. The floor doesn't look like it gets swept and mopped regularly and had quite a bit of dust. The walls were so paper thin that I was awakened several times by a plastic bag from the room next door although I’m not even a light sleeper. You are able to hear talking, the TV, and any little noise from the other side. The front desk is inside the owner’s apartment, and she is not always there. For example, we had to ask a question, but it was siesta time, so the owner was taking a nap. The young Italian man, who was at the front desk said to come back later. In addition, we had to check out at 8:30 AM. We knocked, rang the bell, and tried the voice intercom, but we didn’t get a respond so just left the keys in the room with the door open. Being that we don’t like housekeeping coming into our room during our stay, we didn’t like not having a sign to put on our door that says “do not disturb.” However, we were able to intercept the housekeeping lady and ask her not to enter.
Very good location, nice hostess, hot water pot, big and clean room. It is really well worth the money!
Perfect location, helpful and friendly, well equipped. We will go there whenever we return to Malaga
A very clean &comfortable room, with access to a well equipped kitchen & a roof terrace. The shared bathroom was no problem, as there were 2 between 6 rooms on the floor. Carolina & the other staff were very friendly, & took time to explain everything, &have a good chat. Location is excellent: very in central street, very close to bars, restaurants etc, &within 5 mins walk of the promenade, cathedral &other attractions. Also under 10 mins walk from the train station, where you can get to the airport in 12 minutes. A great place: I only stayed one night, to catch an early morning flight back but I'd definitely come here for longer
Nothing - it was really good
The hostel is right in the center of the city, the owner is very welcoming. More important, the hostel is perfectly clean!
The location is good, near shopping and not far from the harbor and beaches, and the hotel is a good value. Friendly, helpful staff when checking in.
When I checked out (within specified times), no staff was in the office. The housekeeper checked me out (no problems there), but might have been difficult if I didn't speak enough Spanish.
Right in the heart of Malaga. The most helpful staff you'll find anywhere; spotlessly clean; kitchen facilities for making your own drinks and snacks and a lovely roof terrace. Excellent wi fi too.
Efficient, very friendly and attentive staff; clean shared bathroom; daily room service; excellent location. Lovely sun terrace and well equipped shared kitchen, which can be used any time.
Lack of heating in the room - It was quite chilly during the first night, but we got a heater provided afterwards, which made it somewhat better. Thin walls - Could hear people walking/talking on the corridor and in the kitchen at night.
I highly recommend this place. Good quality for the price. Very hospitable people and excellent service.
The location is next to the Main Street, good for shopping easy to find. The owner and the staff is very kind and helpful, told me the nice restaurant and show me the bus station. The room is very quite, clean and nice.
The hostel is in a not very new building located on the main street , based on this I think there is nothing to complain. It's a good place for people who comes here to see the city.
The owner was one of the most lovely people I have ever met in Spain. And I have been there quite a lot.
The only thing I did not like - The shower head was not attached to the wall.
We stayed in La Palma for a whole week and this was an excellent choice.The location was great, and a lot of restaurants are nearby. It's in the middle of the historic center. It's also just a minute walk from the busstation.The quality of the beds is excellent, a nice clean room and the shared bathroom was also clean. We've had one day of heavy rain and the nice lady gave us umbrella's to use, also a small electric stove because it was fairly cold in the room. The cleaningladies were nice too. The greatest thing however is the roofterras; when the sun shines you can sit there quietly, read and have a small meal and it's even near the kitchen, so you don't have to go downstairs to your room to get a drink. We've had a great vacation in La Palma and we will certainly stay here again next time. When we left we got a delicious present! Thank you!
There is no stove and no pans in the kitchen to cook a small hot meal when you don't feel like going out, but this really is not very important. The showercurtain was a bit dirty, but it was removed the day we left. The fridge lacked some pieces. The little shelves you put f.e. your cremes and make-up in were not clean, so we cleaned this ourselves). You could hear the neighbours talk during the night because of the thin walls and feel the wind through the windows when it was a cold day. But overall these were just minor things and it would't stop us from coming back.
Staff great and hostel well geared up as a comfortable place to leave things and sleep in. Also very large kitchen and terrace if want to cook own meals. Good value for money
Owner was really helpful Room was nice, clean and comfy
Parking in the city is a pain
This hostel is in a fabulous location to see all the sights of Malaga.Landlady was so helpful nothing was any trouble to her.She helped us to print out our boarding passes which was a big help. Great value for money will definately be returning.
Great location,very helpful staff who speak good English.
The beds could be more comfortable,but were quite adequate.
Location- near to perfection. The receptionist!!! Very clean! The balcony. Beautiful light in the mornings!!! Everything was functional.
No heating (first night It was a little bit cold). A kind of noise in the late night from the street.
Clean, hospitable, very central and close to beach. Staff very friendly and helpful I'm especially thankful to Caroline for being so generous with her time and for running such a nice establishment
This was our second time there. Owner is friendly and helpful, there's a shared kitchen and rooftop patio on the top floor anyone can use. Good location. Cheerful decor. This time we did not get a room with a private bathroom, but there were two on our floor, so we never had to wait and they were clean.
They were doing some construction work on the street outside, but the owner
The owner walked me around the block to show me where to catch the airport bus. Exceptional service. Amazing location to near a superb food market
I found all the staff extremely helpful especially the owner who as soon as we got to our hotel helped plan out our holiday. She was wonderful throughout our stay recommending nice places to eat, nothing was too much trouble. The location was great with all the sights in Malaga easily accessible. The coach station was a 15 minute walk. Our pickup point for our tours to see the rest of Andalucía was a 5 minute walk. The room was clean and the cleaners came in every day. There was a lovely little roof terrace that we enjoyed the sun and fruit from a nearby market.
can't find a fault for the price.
Roof terrace was ideal, tea and coffee making facilities, microwave, fridges & free wifi with excellent signal
Would have benefitted from having a toaster!
The kindness and the hospetality
The location is very good: near the bus stop to airport and all other tourist spots. The staff is friendly.
The room we stayed was noisy. The cleaning team starts to clean the road at 1am and you can hear the trash car very clearly. The room was also cold in mid of November. The bed quality was not so good: If you sit on only one corner (which we have to because there is only one chair in the room), the bed tilts on the opposite corner.
