Property Information:

X Hostel is now in Malaga!!!!

If you are looking for party and a sociable hostel to meet new people then look no further.
We have daily events to make meeting other travellers very easy.

We've been renovating and improving the building, and will continue to do so to meet 100% of your expectations:

100% Value For Money: We'll always guarantee a price competitive to other hostels in the city. Free Maps ! Free welcome beer! Nightly pub crawls! Boat Party! Free Daily Walking Tour! Daily Events! Discounts on bars and clubs !

100% Security: Strict Guest Only Policy!!! We have 24H CCTV, Reception on call in case of emergency, Staff living in ready to help 24/7, Lockers in every room (may use your own padlock) and Safeboxes. Although you should be alert in the streets of Malaga, you can rest safe in the knowledge that your belongings are safe and secure here in the hostel.

100% Location: Exceptional location in the historic centre Malaga adjacent to the street where Picasso was born. A statue of Picasso seated on a bench can be found at the end of our street in the 'Plaza de la Merced' .We are located on a small pedestrianized street surrounded by many bars and cafes, tapas, Veggie, and Spanish restaurants, supermarket and indoor local produce market with fresh vegetables and fish. Our street is a very lively/vibrant street popular with locals during the evening which many of our guests love. We are located a short walk from all of the historical sights (see photo) so this gives you more time to hit the beaches (ten minute walk away).

100% Staff: Our staff will be more than happy to provide information regarding the city and the villages nearby, or anything else you may need to know. All have experience in travelling, and several are frequent visitors to the Andalucia area. Between us we speak English,Spanish,Italian, and French. Every night our staff organise dinners and events.

100% Atmosphere: X Hostel is a chain of hostels owned by backpackers who know what makes a great hostel, we are not a huge hostel and this makes for more of a personal feel where you can get to know people easier. Even if you travel alone you will have plenty of chances to socialise with everyone in our common area, and our rooftop terrace in the Summer. The party continues after midnight when we leave the hostel and take to the bars and clubs of Malaga, with our great value, and unique pub crawl. If you want to party like a real Malagueño, then X Hostel is the place to be!

100% Cleanliness: We have cleaning shifts every 2h from 09:00am to midnight making sure everything is spotless. Staff are always prepared to do what is necessary to make your stay as perfect as possible, so if you see something dirty, just let us know!
