“Enjoyable Stay”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Clean, nicely decorated guest house in a very central location of old town Nerja (best option). Owners very friendly and helpful. Very close to good restaurants and large Supermarket around the corner - Guest House has kitchen area where you can make your own food with a nice patio and garden area open day and night.
Easy to get from Malaga and Bus Stop literally around the corner (3E + 4.5E for the two buses).

Room Tip: Back off hostal or upper floors

Stayed 11 nights over Christmas. We both caught gastroenteritis as did a couple from Germany. In the shared kitchen area there are several signs reminding people to clean utensils after use, this obviously didn't happen. We had to request clean bed sheets after 7 nights. In 35 years of travelling we have never seen such awful towels, they must go through a roller to dry. We should have gone back to the Barcello in Malaga, we will next time.

Room Tip: Choose a room somewhere else.

We regret that you met the kitchen area not clean, which can happen if a client does not leave it clean. We clean it however on a daily basis. Also are sheets always changed after 7 days without asking.

Warm & Welcoming by both Femma & Rick.

Excellent location with facilities that are all you need for a stay in Nerja. The inclusion of the garden pool is great.
Rooms are more than adequate for a short stay.

Would stay again.

We stayed for one night after a last minute booking. The owner was so helpful even though we arrived late at night. The rooms were more like a hotel than a hostel. The garden was lovely and so handy for Balcon and the main area of old Nerja! I would stay here for longer but not in the hot summer as there is no air con in the room. Loved it. Thank you

We stayed in Hostal Lorca in September after our Roadtrip in Andalusia. Nerja sounded like a very nice little Town at the Costa del Sol and according to Tripadvisor this Hostel was one to look forward to. Both are true. The Hostel is a very nice Spanish House wit not too many Rooms. We had a Room at the back with a small Balcony overlooking the Garden with the Pool. The Room is basic, clean, big enough and with very confortable Beds. We made our own Breakfast in the Kitchen, the big and cheap Supermarket Mercadona is around the Corner of the Hostel. Many Thanks to Rick and Fenna the very nice Owners of this Hostel.

Good and small hotel in the quiet end of Nerja. Close to beach and town center / square. Having stayed here before, and will be very happy to stay here again. The owners are warm and welcome, and are always willing to help you with all your questions.

Reviewed 20 July 2012

We recently stayed in Hostal Lorca for a week. We wanted a low cost, last minute break and as we already knew Nerja we thought we would try a hostal for a change (we usually book an apartment). The atmosphere here is really friendly and the hosts excellent. You have a nice facility downstairs with small pool, garden and shaded seating, ideal for relaxing in the hot July afternoon siesta time. You also get to meet other guests and you can buy beer and soft drinks from the fridge. You can stock up on essentials either from the typically Spanish store next door or there is a Supermarket 2 minutes away.
You are close to plenty of tapas bars and restaurants in this area of town (very Spanish and although they don't speak much English they are really friendly) or you can walk 5 minutes or so into the more tourist area of Nerja near the Balcon.
On the negative side we had a room on the top floor which wasn't very big and was pretty hot at night as there is no air-con, only a fan, but it was typically hot July Nerja weather so we can't complain too much.
To sum up if you want a budget stay, basic facilities but clean friendly and well situated then Hostal Lorca is a good choice and an ideal alternative to self catering apartments.

Room Tip: probably the rooms facing the garden might be best although the top room is quiet.
