Score from 168 reviews Very good
Quiet location close to restaurants, tapas bars and shops.All the staff are very friendly, Rooms are cleaned every day. The restaurant is fantastic value, don't miss the tapas espescially the Prawns Pil Pil, absolutely delicious. See you next year.
It's in a nice area of Marbella. Very typical neighborhood with lots of nice streets and picturesque surroundings.
This place is completely overpriced (for what is it). There is no wifi in the room, and it's very basic overall. Just nothing special.
Best value for money. Excellent breakfast
Very friendly, trusty and helpful personal, who really did their best to meet my needs. It felt really like visiting a family and being very welcome in their house. The room was very clean and cosy, with proper cleaning every day. The hostel is just two steps away from the busy area of old town, which make it very quiet but still close to both old town, beach and the city. I also appreciated that it was quite cool temperature in the evenings and night, despite the higher temperature out in the city. Very convenient having the hostel restaurant that served good food, at nice prices. I will definitely stay here again!
The hostel was located in the middle of the old town in beautiful surroundings. It was a basic room but had a TV, fridge and balcony and was very clean with someone coming in each day to clean. I would definitely recommend the hostel to others and would stay their again myself too. We had a fantastic long weekend.
Their was nothing we didn't like about this hostel.
the old town and shops not far from the sea to walk.
hard to park a car near hostal el gallo.
This place is a brilliant find. The staff go out of their way to help you, the rooms are spotless and the location couldn't be better. The street it is located on is so beautiful and so quiet and it's only two minutes walk from great resturants and bars. We have just had such an incredibly cheap and enjoyable holiday in a beautiful area of Spain. I will defiantly be staying here again.
Staff very friendly and couldn't help us enough. Excellent customer service. We requested a balcony but on arrival was informed they didn't have a room with one but if we were willing to wait 2days we could be moved to a bigger room with one. Could not fault the effort and service given to us to accommodate our request. Would stay again and recommend to family and friends. Excellent value for money and location.
Would we come back? Yes, we would! This is why: The staff is very nice and helpful. You feel the difference when a hotel is family owned. The best part was that our room had a great veranda with a western view on the mountain. The street is practically noiseless and yet the hotel is in the middle of the old town. This is great for visiting, dinning and shopping. Moreover, it takes around 15-20 min to the beach. There is a tv, refrigerator, and an AC in the room.
No hairdryer in the bathroom.
Everything. Mr. Antonio helped us with everything. And the restaurant El Gallo has the best food at a very good price. The street on which El Gallo is situated is one of the most beautiful in Marbella old town.
Nothing to dislike.
I was travelling alone and had arrived a day ahead of a family group who had booked a villa for the occasion therefore i wanted an interesting location for my first trip to Marbella.i was not disappointed .Great value, good location , friendly staff, clean and tidy with a compact but adequate room with own shower facilities. The location just a street away from the heart of the old town with numerous bars and restaurants. A 5 minute walk away from the main street through Marbella and 10 minutes to the beachfront promenade and marina. I would happily recommend to all whilst highlighting the car and baggage issue should it apply
Taxi driver refused to access the actual street so from the drection i was coming from (Ataranzas) there was a 100 metre walk with baggage, however there is a closer access from the nearby church square - Plaza Santo Christo so i would suggest to the taxi driver to drop off there and the walk through the laneway at right hand top corner by the church. Note -- no parking nearby for those that have cars
Fantastic stay - really great value Staff were incredibly helpful right throughout our stay
The location was very good , in quant street . The owners where very good in every way.
Wonderful location Friendly staff Great restaurant Very clean
very nice staff, clean room, quiet, very close to main square in old town
The staff were very helpful and the El Gallo Menu is very good. Best Prawn Pilpil in Spain !!!
price, own bathroom
didn't like the restaurant noise below, get a street facing room
Located in the old town, beautiful, very clean narrow streets, many restaurants, El gallo Hostal have a restaurant with excellent food at good prices.
We liked it all. We would recommend El Gallo for a comfortable, reasonably priced place to stay in the lovely Marbella old town.
Hostal El Gallo is excellent; the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly; my room was clean, bright, airy, quiet, warm (it was february); great location, right in the middle of the Old Town; had my own balcony to breakfast on with views of the sea and the mountains. It was excellent value for money. I've stayed in a few hostels in Marbella's Old Town - this is best by far!
Location, Very nice room with terrace
WIFI was a bit slow
Everything was perfect as usual. No need to stay anywhere else in Marbella Old Town!
Nothing to dislike or complain about.
Superb stay, as always!
Nothing to dislike at all
Perfect place to stay. Free parking just round the corner. Very clean and comfortable rooms with great wi-fi connection. Location is the biggest plus point - just round the corner from bars/restaurants and a 10min walk to the beach.
