Attractively located in the centre of Málaga, Terraza del Limonar features air-conditioned rooms, a garden, free WiFi and a shared lounge. Boasting a bar, the hostel is close to several noted attractions, around 200 metres from La Caleta Beach, 600 metres from La Malagueta Beach and 1.7 km from Baños del Carmen Beach. Guests can enjoy sea views.

Amazing staff, friendly and very helpful. The toilets and showers are very clean. Breakfast for 7 euros. Delicious and nutritious. I chose this hostel, because it is close to the beach. It’s taking 20-25 minutes walk to the city center or a few minutes by bus (€1.8). It is highly recommended! Thanks 🙏🏽

Well set in Málaga, TOC Hostel Malaga provides air-conditioned rooms, a shared lounge, free WiFi and a bar. Popular points of interest nearby include Alcazaba, Museum of Glass and Crystal and Jorge Rando Museum. The accommodation features a shared kitchen, a concierge service and organising tours for guests.

Location is great, walking distance to all the main attractions in the city center. The place is in perfect conditions, the decoration in the lobby is lovely with all the flowers and the chairs to sit. They also have a bar there where you can order a glass of wine or beer and have a relaxing time just chilling in a couch. Not that much of a social place to hang out and meet new people but rather a comfortable space to have a good night sleep. Beds are comfortable and overall pretty clean spaces. Alejandro at the lobby was awesome!

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Amazing staff!!!!! :) The hostel gives lots of opportunities for solo travels to enjoy the time in Malaga, meet new people, and have fun. The pods are small, but enough, they look exactly as in the pictures. Good WiFi, a great location. Soap, shower gel, and shampoo were available, which is quite unusual for hostels, so another plus. You can also leave your luggage there for €3 per day. I will definitely choose this place again when I am in Malaga.

    Well it's a budget hostel. Moderate your expectations accordingly and you won't be disappointed. Not easy to find, the door is not marked in any way, but the staff were friendly and it was surprisingly clean. It's literally the cheapest place in town so all told no complaints. Location is also a plus.

    I stayed here for the 2nd time on my trip - and the staff went beyond expectations to help me! As a solo traveller, I was made to feel safe - when some things had gone wrong (nothing to do with the hotel!). It’s definitely the best hostel in Malaga - and those views are just beautiful. Thankyou so much to the staff - so won’t forget what you did for me!
