“too fantastic for a hostal :)”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

My partner had always dreaded going to hot countries but I had missed it. I persuaded him that a break in Nerja in October would be good as it would be a bit cooler than the summer months.
I had never been to a hostal before. But when I read reviews it sounded better than a hotel, so I decided to give it a try.
The shuttle dropped us very close to the hostal. Once inside, we were greeted by the lovely host Tanya. She told us all about the facilities in the hostal and locally, providing us with a map of Nerja. She marked out a few of the good restaurants that her family also use.
She said not to hesitate if we needed anything.
We were pleasantly surprised by the room which was just like a more expensive hotel room. It contained a safe free of charge, a huge wardrobe, comfortable double bed, table with tea and coffee making facilities (replenished daily) the bathroom actually contained a bath and shower which was great news for me as I am not keen on showers. The room had a small tv and a great air conditioning system. The roof terrace is a little gem, with sunbeds and 2 dining tables and chairs, and a shaded lounging area. The room was cleaned daily, and towels changed.
Part way through our holiday we had to confirm the return pick-up with the shuttle service. Tanya was only too happy to make that call for us, and would not accept payment.
We checked out at 11am but had a few hours before going to the airport. We were allowed to leave our cases until it was time to go. Pepe helped us with the luggage when we collected it and chatted for a few minutes. We told him we did not want to leave, and we will definitely go back there. (PS Pepe, I have never seen such white teeth, haha) We wish this lovely young couple every success.

Room Tip: Make any requests when booking. Tanya had noted we had asked for a quiet room, so we got put on the...

We have stayed here before and it's the place we will stay when we are back in beautiful Nerja. Stayed 12 nights in August. The rooms are very confortable with private bathroom and air conditioning. We had everything we needed for some days at the beach. The owners, Tanya and Pepe are really nice and will give you good advices on where to go or eat.

Loved this hostal, the owner was very friendly and welcoming, the facilities in the apartment we had were excellent,very clean and had television with English channels. The only downside was the Internet access which was patchy, we did mention this to the owner and she said it was being looked into. The apartment we had looked out over the lovely square and distant mountains. We have been to Nerja many time over the last thirty years and we would not hesitate to stay at the hostal again.

The „hostal” is located in the heart of Nerja and it is a great place to stay for a holiday in the sun. It is located just far enough from the busy (and somewhat noisy city centre of Nerja) not to be disturbed by it but close enough so that going to the beach is a 5 minute stroll through charming old spanish small town streets. The hotel itself is very clean, the staff/owners are very friendly and helpful. Definitely a place we will come back to in a short while. The fish at the restaurants of Nerja is excellent and abundant at very reasonable prices.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally great. The rooftop terrace is fabulous.

This hostal is well located, but be very careful when trying to park close by. Get directions from the lady who owns the place and be careful during the high season. It is not hard to get a ticket in Nerja, even with the relaxed Spanish mood, there police officers all around this place monitoring the traffic. When we got there we were surprised by this family hostal. You can tell there is attention to details everywhere. Really cleaned and cosy. We received some very useful info about the town and places to eat. Highly recommend it!
