Reviewed 3 November 2013

My daughter & I stayed one night here in October, 2013. It is very well located within walking distance of all the major sites. Room was quite spartan but bathroom very clean and staff most helpful. Parking is nearby in underground lot as you cannot drive on the narrow streets in the old part of the city. As with most of the hotels we stayed in in Spain internet was spotty at best & rarely worked in the room. Our room had a fan but I didn't see any air-conditioning so in summer it might be quite hot.

Stayed here in October 2013.....A lovely hostal....So clean ..... helpful staff ....clean towels daily...
It's right in the centre of the city - couldn't be any closer for shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, the local fruit and veg market and of course the harbour and beaches.

Whilst in Malaga look out for La Surena bar - 5 bottles of Mahou for 3 euros. And offers on food thru-out the week.
Try El Cid's for lunch and tapas recommended to us by the manager at the hostal and well worth a trip. Doesn't look very inviting as its used by the market workers but lovely food.

I would like to give this hotel a better score as most things about it were fine, however I guess it all depends which room you get. Ours was pokey and smelt of drains. I saw into another room that faced onto the street and it looked lovely. So ask for a good room when you book (not number 11!)
Having said that, friendly staff, very clean, good value and amazing central location.

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.
