Reviewed 17 May 2013

I am really satisfied with this hostel. Even though small, it is clean, neat, and very comfortable for sleep. The receptionist is very helpful and friendly. And of course it's cheap. If you go to Malaga, you must stay at Pension Juanita :)

My experience was all good - from the friendly phone call to make several bookings, super-clean rooms, friendly staff and great location - right in the historic centre of Malaga, and near to the airport bus stop.
Will definitely use again.

Room Tip: If you need an en-suite or double bed, make sure you specify when booking.

This is a good pension-style hostal in a very good central location, but on a quiet side street. It is very basic, but it was spotlessly clean and the staff were really good. For the price, you really couldn't ask for more. Being so central, it was quick and easy to walk to all the places you'd want to explore and was right next to the old quarter. The only downside is that the walls are thin so you can hear when your neighbours come in, get up, run a bath etc.

Clean pension with very friendly and helpful staff.
Absolutely great location - walking distance to everywhere.
Price not to bad for Malaga.
BAD: I had the small room across the entrance with only a basin in. Noisy early evening, but later it is quieter. No view.
I had to share a bathroom, but it was also clean. Stayed for 2 nights. will stay again.

In July of 2012, the Juanita was still as most reviewers have described it: clean, friendly, great location, best price (that we found) in Malaga. But if you, accustomed as you are to the a/c available in most Andalucian budget joints, are wondering whether the oscillating fan will be just as good in breezy seaside Malaga, know that the answer (in July at least) is no. Rooms feel hot and stuffy despite fan and sleep was fitful. On the PLUS side, we saw no signs of the renovation that others have warned against, and wi-fi is functional.

Mario was delightful on arrival, room was ready and even checked in 2 hrs early. His english is fantastic.
Room was too small for a 3 nite stay for us with 2 big backpacks but it was clean, tidy & well maintained. Also had a lift up - as well as stairs.
Almost smack bang in the middle of the old quarter and very central to food and shopping.
Highly recommend Dieci Nueva restaurant for dinner. For foodies like us, everything was perfect and amazing sangria. In Sta Maria #21 - hard to find in yet another little laneway but well worth the find.
Our room came with a much needed fan for the 3 hot nites we had but Mario did advise he was in the process of getting aircon so may have changed since we were there.
Tourist information Staff in the tourist booths dotted around the city were not very forthcoming with info and gave us misleading , wrong or outdated information. We wasted a whole day trying to book an Andalusian/Flamenco show - dont bother.
