“i'm not that enthusiastic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2003

Hostal Derby is an ok choice for a night, but it has suffered a lot in the last couple of years (I have stayed there a couple of times). It is VERY loud due to its location and to be honest the price for the rooms keeps going up while loosing any contact with reality, that is clean but shabby rooms without a bathroom. And they are VERY reluctant on reservations. Malaga seems to be an expensive place year round but to be honest, the only reason I keep staying at Derby is because I never have time to check out anything else.

We window shopped for hostels for a full afternoon. This was by far the best hostel we found, and are planning to retun soon, particularly for the price we paid.

I have stayed at the Hostal Derby on two occasions-once when I was travelling alone and the other when I was with a companion. On both occasions I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - my room was basic but clean and the staff were really friendly even though I speak limited Spanish and they spoke no English.I would recommend this Hostal to anyone staying in Malaga.
