Bring exact change for check in. You cannot check on before 2:00 but they do have a low security place to store bags. The rooms are very basic. The location is great. I was a bit underwhelmed by the staff but for the price great place to stay.
It was a really nice hostel, really clean and in the center of Malaga. Great rooms and really nice and welcoming staff!
Given the price, we were relatively impressed with this hostel, however, it is nowhere near as good quality as other hostels we have stayed in, so dont expect too much! The one big problem was the noise at night, as the room we had was at street level - take earplugs just in case. Also, the only other person we encountered was a cleaner who checked us in, and whilst she was friendly, she did not speak English at all which would have been inconvenient if we had needed help with anything.
The rooms were situated a couple of streets away from the office in the middle of the beautiful old town. Nice and clean room and bathroom. Unfortunately not possible to pay with card. The walls were thin and on Saturday night it was almost impossible to sleep because of all the noise on the street outside. On Sunday night, however, this was not a problem.
It's not a hostel so it's difficult to judge the atmosphere/staff - no good if you're looking to meet people! But - if you want a nice, clean, cheap room in the very centre of Malaga this is perfect and I would definitely stay there again.
