The location was right on the beach which was lovely. However, my security locker didn´t have a door and there was only a sheet and a blanket to keep me warm at night. The room smelt bad, the shower was dirty, and my bed had unkown hair in it. I wouldn´t recommend it for a long term stay but for one night it worked. The staff was nice and helpful and there was a nice outdoor patio and kitchen area where meeting people was made easy.


I had a great time in the hostel, every night they do pub crawl and is superb! One staff to be admired most is Nico who multi tasks with jobs of receptionist and excellent cook, he prepares and serves every night amazing dishes like Paella, Mexican delicacies and cocktails drinks at moderate prices which is within backpackers changes in pocket!!!!! Not forgetting owner Pepe who simply loves to see his guests have a great time!!


Great location with being right next to the beach but a bit of a distance from the centre. The rooms didn't have locks so didn't feel terribly secure while I was sleeping as my roommates were constantly wandering in and out all night. From what I heard it's still the best out of the Malaga hostels though


Great Hostel for the price. It is located between two larger roads. So, unfortunately you get quite a lot of lights from the traffic thorugh your window at night. Also it is not very quiet because of this. The location is good, directly at the beach and not too far from the city center. I liked the well-equipped kitchen. The laundry facilities are ok but rather pricy. Breakfast is included and ok (a bit too sweet for my taste, though).


Quite disappointing. The facilities are old, bad taste and not well maintained.

The location of the hostel was amazing, the beach is literally on your doorstep, and you're close to the city centre as well (about 20 min walk away - so the area around the hostel is also very clean and quiet). All the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, as well as helpful. Will hihgly recommend this for the place to stay! :)
