The place is worth for that price for sure! It is not the cleaniest and the most beutiful hostel in the world but the staff is amazing!!! I have been in hostels almost in all Europe but I have never seen so great staff in the hostel! Very talkative and super helpful!!!


Loved staying here with my girlfriend. Staff are really friendly and helpful, with a great atmosphere! Plenty of interesting characters stay here too, so always good conversation. This was my second time staying here in 3 weeks, and have now booked for a 3rd stay in a few weeks time! You´re given a key on arrival so there´s no curfew, and its only a 20 minute walk from the town center or 5-10 minutes from the beach.

if you do not mind the pot smell and the fact that if you get a private room it is private because you are hiring the other beds as well.

It was best value for money, good staff , close to the beach but far from the tourist attractions. No discriminations against women and the same price for the female and mixed dorm. The facilities were so bad, only few plates for a hostel with 100 something beds, no cups and the old and broken TV.


perfect to stay a night if you have to catch a flight the next morning. close to the beach and an unbeatable price!!


Absolutely awesome hostel! The staff and atmosphere were very welcoming. I felt like I was coming home every time I came back to the hostel. Rooms were fine and for 7 euro you can't beat them. Would definitely stay there again!

The rooms were fairly dirty, the lockers were broken. Unfortunately my roommates didnt seem to understand any common courtesy regarding turning lights on and off and talking late at night when they came back. At 5 in the morning some people brought their bags into the room which was totally bizarre.


The amount paid was good.


The staff working here are fantastic so considerate


Worth the price and good located if you're planning to fly from or to Malaga

Me and my girlfriend needed somewhere to stay and just rest our heads and this place does exactly that. For the price as well there isnt much to complain about.
