I had a perfect stay at that hostel: a tiny village with white houses, you can start your hike right at the doorstep and the owner, Botz, is an excellent cook and has great tips for hiking. Also there is a roof terrace, where you can watch the sunset, amazing! The house itself is also very pretty and homey. I will definitely come back if I can.
I really recommend this hostel. Cartajima is a really nice village and so is the owner. He helps you in every way to make your stay unforgettable. A great area to hike.

The hostel is located in a small village in the mountains about 20 mins. from Ronda. I highly recommend the region and the hostel for everyone who is interested in outdoor actvities in the surroundings (biking, hiking, climbing, etc.) Botz (the staff) is very friendly. He worked as a chef in many countries and prepares (excellent) breakfast and dinner for you if you like (for additional costs). Weve been to a bar in the village and got to know some of the locals of the village!
Great place to stay if travelling in the mountains. Lovely area for hiking and the owner, Botz, will point you in the right direction aswell as having a good laugh and cooking up some excellent food! Highly recommended!
This was one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in.
Thanks botz, we had a wonderful time! One of the highlights during my five weeks in Spain :)
Probably more suited to the younger set rather than us oldies (65+). Having said that, the owner, Botz, could not have been more helpful and he cooked us a great meal for a very reasonable price. Also had very good advice for the walks in the beautiful surrounding hills.
This place is a little hard to find, but definitely worth looking for. It is settled within the mountains, around 30 minutes car ride from Ronda. The owner is very hospitable and cooks delicious breakfest! He will make you feel like at home and definitely share some of his adventurous stories. Great experience!
