We were very happy to stay at Casa Babylon. The friendly atmosphere makes you feel welcome and safe. Salvi makes a great BBQ and Marina is very helpful with practical questions about both the place and the city. Best wishes from Denmark.


Stay at this hostel! It's beautiful. Very close to the center as well.


nice chilled out hostel, stayed there for 1 night met some really cool people. no problems with the hostel at all...


The hostel was good ! Nice atmosphere ! The only thing was the sheets a little bit oily ..


Stayed here one night with my husband on an 'emergency' stop over, so this was really just a place to crash and try to get some sleep. No air conditioning, and since our windows faced into the courtyard which stayed pretty loud till midnight, the guy at the front gave us a giant fan to keep cool. Thanks!! Seemed like people were leaving their personal toiletries/towels around in the bathroom, didn't give the bathroom a clean feel. Other than that no complaints! Awesome common area and cafe/bar!

The hostel had everything one would need for a good stay in Malaga. The staff helped out wherever they could even though not all of them could speak English and I really appreciated that. It is also within walking distance of the Alcazaba and beaches (around 30 mins)


highly recommend it! such a beautiful hostel, great facilities, feels really secure and the location is very good. we had no complaints!


This is the best hostel, where I ever been! :) Thanks for everything


The staff is pleasent and the restaurant serves delicious food. Also you can rent bikes from the hostel. I just think that it wasnt very clean, the bed sheets didnt smell good and they didnt seem to clean the room at all.


The stay at Babylon with my family was very enjoyable. Good atmosphere, nice people and a very good price/quality ratio. The only minus point was the rat i saw slip early in the morning from the kitchen. I have only told my family When we were at home.


This is a great hostel. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm. the breakfast was good,. Good bar and food in the evening. Walking distance to beach. Good hostel to chill out. Good selection of beers in the bar. Easy to meet people.


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
