Nomadas Hostel

Malaga, Spain

Nice, but painfully quiet and boring (which may suit some people). It was low season though, which didn't help. Unfortunately, there was no real communal area, especially with the terrace closed. The internet PC was also very slow. On the plus side, bunks and bathrooms very nice - way too good for backpackers! It's quite a new hostel, and will improve I am sure. They try a bit too hard to make it homely though - no need to set the tables for breakfast (which was a bit basic) each morning!

Really enjoyed my stay here - the perfect balance, not too quiet and not too loud. Able to have a few drinks with fellow travellers on the lovely rooftop terrace, but peaceful after midnight. Staff were really helpful in advising travel options and places to eat. Breakfast was basic, but plentiful. Excellent value too - very cheap. I would happily pay a bit more though for a slightly better breakfast, more comfortable beds & a few more bathrooms. Some evening meals would also be good!

Lovely hostel. Good location, near the port, montjuic and la ramblas. Staff very friendly and helpful. Guests up for having a good time, but respectful of those who wanted some peace. Showers nice and powerful and hot! Free internet stations and wi-fi. Breakfast was a bit basic though (just cereal and toast and jam) - I would have been happy to pay an extra couple of euros more for a bit more variety (e.g. cheese, meats, eggs, croissants)! Would certainly stay there again. Recommended.

Very pleased I booked this hostel - great location by the leidseplein, really chilled out, relaxed, good and plentiful breakfast, free internet, comfortable beds. Only negatives were slightly early check-out (10am) and could do with some security lockers I think. But generally a really cool place - very much recommended!
