I enjoyed my stay here a lot. The hostel is located in a calm side alley, but still in the center with restaurants and bars very close. Beach is within 20 to 25 minutes walking distance. The guys from the hostel were incredibly friendly, lovely, and helpful. Our room was cleaned everyday and it is an old building, nicely decorated....

What a great little find. Location wise it's excellent. It's pretty easy to get to. I have walking difficulties but managed it OK. We got the train from the airport to malaga central (€3.60 for two it's four stops from the airport) then it's just a short ten - fifteen minute walk from the station. It's well situated for restaurants,...

The hotel is basically in the city center so that's a really big plus. The room and the bathroom were very clean. I didn't expected that from a hostel. The furniture is from Ikea and they really tried to make it look modern. The only two negative things are that: 1) during the weekend the hostel was full and people...

Could have been 4 stars but there are flaws. First let's talk about the positives: Massimo is very nice and friendly. Our flight was late in the evening but he waited for ust to arrive at around 11pmsh. Wifi is very good. Room is clean and we were lucky to book a room with a private shower. The negatives are...

Positive: Even though we arrived late, the hotel owner waited for us and greeted us very friendly. The entrance as well as the room are beautifully decorated and if you book a double room with private bathroom you'll feel as if you have your own little flat. The kitchen is nice too and has everything at ones disposal. You'll get...

The apartement's location very good, 5 minutes walk every sight. Malagueta beach 20 min walk. The hostel is in an old building, has very good andalusian mood with the colorful tiles. Shared kitchen is good, coffee is free. We booked a bedroom with private bathroom. The bed was cozy, bathroom little but good for this money. Everything was clean. But...

Wonderful accommodation in the city centre with a great story about the house as well. We had the room at the top floor, which is an idyllic room a nice view of the rooftops of the city centre. Although the house was built in the 1830s you don't really realise it and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Big...

Very simple, clean and quaint hostel ideally located in centre of city. We stayed in the very top double room in the hostel (#11). The only downside of the hostel is the narrow/steep stairs to get to our room and you have to come back down each time you need to use the shared bathroom. This is the only minor...
