“Want the double-bed you ordered? You can bring it up yourself”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

They tried getting us to pay more to have the double-bed we ordered, instead of the twin beds they were trying to lay on us. After a day of being played ("we will do it tomorrow" speech) and more negotiating, the options were clarified, carry the mattress yourself or be downgraded to a small noisy bedroom that doesn't have the balcony you ordered, without a discount I may add.
Stay away, many other lovely places to stay at in Nerja.

Very good hostal in the city center but not in very noisy place.The room was clean everytime and the staff were very friendly. The rooms has safe, hair-dryer and good balcony.
The only thing that was not good - they forgot about our arrival. But finally they found our booking and everyting was ok.

This hostel was beyond our expectations, as we rented a room for a weekend and we were given a spacious apartment, which included apart from the bedroom a chill out living room with tv and cosy atmosphere.
The people in the reception were very pleasant and willing to help, the location is great. Perfect combination for a perfect weekend!
We will definitely prefer this hostel for our next visit to Nerja.

Its a nice little hostal, lovely touches in the decor. Immaculately clean and the rooms were cleaned and towels changed every day. Handy location. We had a mix up with the room, took a day to sort and we were told we would be upgraded for free. Got back to the hotel and they didn't have a clue what I was on about so more haggling. We got the room we should have had so no upgrade. The front of the building where our room was is very noisy. For the price it is in a good location.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the street are noisy.

Excellent place to stay been to Nerja many times must say this was the best . The room was so clean and very modern. The towels were changed every day we have never had this anywhere .I slept so well as air condition was free as was a safe . Hostal Abril was ideal location for restaurants and bars . A visit to Malaga is a must the Alcazaba De Malaga is definitely worth going to . Take trip to Frigiliana its very pretty.We just cant wait to return to Nerja .

Outstanding value for money just home from our second stay at hostal Abril in May time. Already planning next trip.
Ideal location for all the local attractions, lovely street view & noise level was fine.
Accommodation is very well maintained turned over every day. Staff are very friendly & absolutely obliging with whatever queries we had.
Cannot recommend highly enough amazing value for money

This trip to beautiful, sparkling Nerja was a great find on EasyJet holidays. I had researched this hotel as per usual on TripAdvisor. The transfer was booked in the package deal and this hotel is an hour from Malaga airport. The hotel named, Hostal Abril is beautiful and new. There were no bugs or critters and the room cleaned, towels changed daily. There is a TV (Spanish), air con and safe in the room. Didn't have to pay extra for the safe but didn't use air con for April, May. Weather was a balmy 29-30 degrees. Trips cannot be booked from the hotel and the gentleman on the desk has little English. I also had a little Spanish. Straight down the road takes you to the small beach, Playa Calahonda where beds and brollies are €4.50 to hire. It is black sand with pebbles and shells which are worse at the neighbouring large Burriana beach so take swim shoes. End of April/May is a perfect time of year to go needing a cover up in the evening. Local buses are €1 to go to the mountains of Frigliana and also the caves but don't expect the man at the bus station kiosk to help if you don't speak Spanish. The hotel is 2 star but is really 3 and is only rated so because there is no breakfast (or any food) and no tea and coffee facilities. There are plenty of places to eat and all very cheap which is a bonus. There is free wifi at the hotel and everywhere in Nerja which is great news. I can thorough recommend this hotel for a happy, very convenient and enjoyable stay in Nerja.

Room Tip: There was no problem sleeping facing the main road, only slightly noisy. There are 2 sets of curta...
