A typical backpackers over the other hotel style hostels you can find in Malaga. Expect it’s a really brilliant place when they are more guests but I was there in the Winter time and it was rather quiet although owner included me in dinner on Xmas eve. Didn't bother me too much but it is a longer walk from the main sites.


Like in a previous year,Casa Caracol still in the top of hostels of Costa de la Luz This must be truth!! Another lovely stay.At this time,I couldn't spend there as much time,as I wanted(duties) I'll be patient as Caracol must be :-) and wait til the next year,to do some surfing.


one of the best hostels ive been to

Unfortunately the staff treat you more like a nuisance than a guest.


Great stay, would recommend!


The staff is very nice. In addition the rooms are very CLEAN! The hammock and outdoor shower on the roof was pretty awesome too! I would recommend Casa Caracol to all my friends going to Cádiz.

Loved this place, especially the hammocks! It had a sweet atmosphere and made it easy to interact with other travelers. Delicious dinners and fun day trips. Would return 100%!


I really liked the atmosphere of the hostel, but some points must be said: First of all, it will be good if they have more computers with internet available, there was only one. The breakfast was not so good, there was no bread, only pancakes. I thought it would be better. I'm not asking for a big breakfast, only the basic: coffee, bread, butter, milk, that's all. On the other hand, the staff was really really kind. And the bathroom without ceiling in the last floor was something awesome!!


This was a very chilled, environmentally friendly focused hostel. Unfortunately the kitchen had lots of flies and the water pressure in the shower was very poor (saving water is an aim for them) but otherwise it was a nice hostel with good people.


Best hostel in the South of Spain - Great location in the old town, close to all attractions and beaches, bike rental, breakfast and great dinners. Staff is very helpful and friendly, too. Wish I could have stayed longer!


beautiful hostel, very relaxed atmosphere, great rooftop, cool staff, very open atmosphere. met nice people there and had a great time. wonderful breakfeast with pancakes and good self-made dinners! 100% recommendable!!!


Very funky hostel and loved some of the common areas. The rooms are bright and beds well set up with shelves and points but would prefer for improved security to be able to lock the doors - but you still have lockers for key valuables so still ok. The hostel did some great cook ups for dinner, however if you cant wait until 10pm to eat, then at least the kitchen will be available for you (but this is Spain time). If you are looking for a central hostel in Cadiz (great location) and social.


Great hostel, very chilled and the staff were great. Cheap beer and food every night if you wish or cook yourself. Good wifi. Highly recommend!


Amazing! Loved my stay in Casa Caracol! The Staff is the best! Tks guys!


Had the most relaxing time at casa caracol. the atmosphere is brilliant and very friendly. i heard lots of people arrive here for 2 nights and end up staying for three weeks and am not surprised. the family dinners are good and a nice way to meet people. The location is also excellent, 5 minutes from the beach...if you can tear yourself away from the hammocks on the roof that is!


The breakfast is included, but the truth is that it was impossible to eat some breakfast there. They make pancakes,but really it takes a lot of time. And many people were on line ,waiting pancakes. Under this circumstance it is impossible that every single guest can eat. Besides the kitchen is too small. And two password in the hostel for WiFi are inconvenient. And I think they should improve that every single person takes one pancakes and when they take ,they should step away from there.


I have been to casa caracol on many occasions and the place just continuously improves each time I visit. If you know of a place where everything just *clicks*, then you know what this is like.


Great Hostel on a perfect location, close to the train/bus station and in the center. The crew is nice and helpful. The common room and nice kitchen are a good place to meet people. There is a nice roof terrace with hammocks. Internet connection is good with separate WIFI for each space, and several computers. Best hostel I've been to in Spain!


I can't say enough good things about this place. I planned to stay 1 night and ended up staying 4, I actually may return after Tarifa. The rooftop with hammocks where there is family bbqs and an outdoor shower is amazing. The staff are all such sweet people, who become your friends. The environment is so great to help you slow down and just enjoy everything. The breakfast was delicious muselli and fresh made crepes. I will return to caracol. A great place as a solo traveler.


The hostel has a very laid-back atmosphere and is a great place to meet other solo travellers. The dinners they offer are delicious and cheap. The hostel is centrally located, close to the train station and only a 5-minute walk to the cathedral and other major attractions of the city. The staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities were overall good, there is free Wi-Fi and PCs to use. It would be good if there was an additional bathroom as people often had to queue when the hostel is full.
