This is a clean comfortable pension with clean basic rooms and shared bath room. Not many frills i.e. no restaurant and no breakfast served but it is so close to all the amenities that this does not matter. One minute from the large central market and all the shops, bars and restaurants.

I don't usually write reviews but this place deserves all the good comments that I could provide. The hostess is a great lady, the gentleman in the reception is very friendly and they do whatever it takes to keep the customers happy and satisfied. The location of the hotel is marvelous, close to the best restaurants and cafes in town.... More

The landlady gave me a round trip around the place, showed me close fresh market, supermarket, bakery. She was very helpful to answer all my questions and find solution... It was right in the centre of Málaga, so not big deal if I had to return back home from the city - or just to rest for a while :)... More

It's a good budget hostal, but I'd like to get some soap to wash my hands with! (There where none in the bathroom). The area is quiet so you'll get a good night's sleep! And it is closs to many supermarkets

Its a basic hostel, friendly and clean, but what really marks the hostel as special is the location - slap bang in the middle of Malaga old town. Rooms are basic but clean, the fittings a little dated, but if you are just looking for somewhere to good value to sleep and have as a base for exploring the city,... More

Simple but comfortable accommodations with very good rates. For two travelers my room would have been a great bargain, but just for one person it was still pretty reasonable. Be prepared for many flights of stairs, or you can take the tiny elevator. Great location close to the wonderful local market and very near shopping and restaurants. Easy walk to... More

Located directly in the heart of the city, and the personnel are very friendly, especially the owner Caroline, a lovely lady, she made me feeling really home, and she was always there for help.

It can be difficult to locate, but once you notice the sign, then ring the bell just labelled "Hostel" in the middle of the bank of buttons. You'll be directed up to the third floor. Ring again, and the lady who owns/runs the Hostel is really lovely and friendly. In fact, I wish we had had a little more time... More

This isn't the smartest place to stay but the room we had was big enough, hanging space, en suite, large double bed and a small balcony. Plenty of hot water, clean towels every day. There's also a roof top space to enjoy the sun and meet other travellers. No breakfast but kitchen spaces. Just off Marques de Larios and lots... More

“Most rooms are twin with shared bathrooms but if you want a double en suite ask - they have 2. Noise from the busy street can be a problem for front facing rooms especially on the lower floors.”
