Not very clean, empty bottles pile up next to the bar all week. No dormroom locks, open to all. Most rooms have a bathroom. Small, flimsy lockers. Wifi is good, but drops out sometimes. Kitchen is good, has an oven. Need more fridge space. Hostel dinners are tastey, but no value for money. You get a single plate with no drink or additional course €8. If you choose to cook, have to wait until after the hostel dinner is cooked. Lots of locals take up the facilities of the hostel (friends of staff)


Quite loud at night due to locals/guests of owners hanging out on the terrace and talking loudly all night. Rooms don't lock. Not very close to the city center or the beach. The hot water is not consistent - sometimes you get it , sometimes you don't The place itself is great - with the bar and the terrace - nice places to hang out and meet other travelers. The nightly dinners are very good, but not cheap.


This hostel has everything you would want for summer travelling. Awesome outdoor area with bar, great staff and a huge house. It wasn't the cleanest place I've stayed in but it wasn't the worst either. Bathrooms were fine but bedding was a bit matted. They sell local craft beer too which is awesome.


very nice place to stay. we booked and came very late but no problem for them. clean and nice fashioned house with a high standard.

Its comfortable and clean, but realy noisy at night due their own guests that dont ever respect the ones who need to rest. Even after midnight people continue to talk loud and drink like it was a bar. Besides that, everything is good there.


the staff seemed quite reserved. however, that led to lots of interaction between the travellers.


I could live in this hostel. It's clean, great atmosphere, friendly staff and very easy to meet new people. Three cool terraces and beautiful views from the upper one. I recommend this hostel to everyone. Next time I am in Málaga I will stay here.


Very interesting atmosphere, a lot of locals would come at night for the bar/food area. But I understand why, the food was AMAZING and pretty cheap which was really nice. Everyone that worked there was great and the atmosphere was wonderful but if you are looking for a more english friendly hostel I would recommend it. If you are looking for a genuine Malaga experience than go here!


great people, great weather, great food, great place, hard to leave

Very easy, spacious and comfortable hostel with nice staff


Awesome atmosphere with a nice owner. Definetely worth the visit to Malaga


This hostel is very very well decorated in a colorful boutique manner. The staff is very nice and helpful. Delicious food and drinks can be ordered in the outside common area (EX. dinner 5E, beer 1E). Beds are good but not many outlets nearby. Locker rooms have limited space so bedroom floor is full of belongings. Smaller hostel with great common areas make it easy to meet people. Make sure you know how to use keys before heading out. It has a South American vibe, with open areas (w/ bugs).


Such a chill, relaxed vibe. Loved the hammocks. Wished I had stayed longer!


The atmosphere was so great, felt like a comfy home. Loved the little second hand shop too! Showers were often a bit cold during rush hours. The shower could not be attached to the wall so it was time consuming to wash your hair. The showerfloor was slippery, I would recommend an anti slip mat. If you wanted to sleep early you would hear people talking and the music coming from the garden/terrace area depeninding on which room you are in. The 4person dorm we had was small, beds reasonable.


Fantastic place, after staying in a couple of not so nice ones in Malaga... It was great!


This was a really nice hostel. Very Andalucían in a guest home. The staff were great and th bar and dinner are great additions. You can also rent bikes directly from the hostel.


Spotless hostel, friendly staff and great BBQ in the evenings with beer - the best choice for Malaga!


All the staff where very friendly and helpful.


I had a very good stay and would go there again. It is well located and the staff is very helpful.


Lovely hostel. Great staff, great feel, walking distance to the town, beach, castle. Great decor! Tim
