It's definitely NOT in Marbella but in San Pedro de Alcantara (12 kms, 30 to 40 mns by bus, 1,18 € per ride). The location is great close to local cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops. I very much liked the terrace where you can socialise with fellow travelers and have some drinks. WIFI provided, but no computers Highly recommended !


Great place to stay!! Very clean and comfy room!!! Nice terrace where I had my breakfast!! Close walking to many restaurants and bars in San Pedro. To the beach would be around 10 to 15 min walking.


The hostel is fine and the staff quite friendly, but it's not kind of place for backpackers. No hostel atmosphere. It looks like more a Spanish "pensión". No kitchen. I don't like ensuite rooms when I travel, more humidity means more smell. No lockers in my room. There are many rooms and it's not easy to communicate with everyone. However, the terrace is great. All in all, it's not a bad option to stay there, but keep in mind limitations, also far from Marbella and not so near the beach.


This hostel is a little out of the way but everything else was great. The owners kindly stayed up for me and call to make sure I was arriving safely as it was very late at night. They will help with anything, a very good atmosphere. There are busses to go into the main areas and were very easy.


Had a fantastic experience at the hostel. Stayed at numerous different hostels throughout my life and this is one of the best. Friendly family running the business and were always around and helpful. Roof terrace was a great feature as well. Would recommend to any friends.

The hostel is in San Pedro, not Marbella. Its about 15km from Marbella. That was a bit confusing. Once I got to San Pedro, it was still hard to find coz nobody had heard of it and the street is a small one too. Maybe directions from the church plaza would be more handy. Staff was nice - its a family run business. Breakfast was GREAT, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice and good coffee. The rooftop patio is a lovely spot for socializing

Good hostel in decent Location. Very communal atmosphere and the owners are very happy to give you advice about where to go for food or drinks. Would recommend staying here if you want a cheap room close to P.Banus or Marbella although there is another small beach about 10 mins walk from the hostel if you don't want any of that. Would stay here again if i was in the area.


Gary, Karen, Richie and Micheal, were all great, helpful in any way they could, If I was down there again, I would stay there.
