Hostelworld says

Casa Babylon Backpackers is a spacious, relaxing, comfortable, home-like hostel set in a lovely neighbourhood just 20 minutes' walk from Gibralfaro. The highly rated staff are friendly and welcoming and there is an outdoor terrace, unique chill-out area and a bar. We like their guitars and hammocks - a great way to get a feel for the local lifestyle. This hostel is ideal for those interested in meeting their fellow travellers.

Property Description

Casa Babylon is more than a hostel - it's a place to share your travel and personal experiences with all the other cosmopolitans and backpackers. Come here and spend a pleasant time with all of us who find ourselves here, enchanted by the spirit of green Andalucia.

We are situated in the district of Victoria, just a five minute walk from Plaza de la Merced, the historical and cultural centre of Málaga; here you can visit Cervantes theater, Picasso's birthplace house, the cathedral and a wide variety of bars, tea shops, restaurants, etc.

Our hostel has been renovated for your travel comfort. Our rooms are clean and you can enjoy our common area, chill out zone, terrace and bar where you can try some of our refreshing cocktails or spend time listening to a variety of world music (skareggaecumbiapunkbalcanifusion!)

It is said that travelling is the best investment, to meet different people and to get to know their customs and traditions. If all this is what you are looking for then Casa Babylon is your home away from home.

    I had been recommended this hostel by a former hostel owner(thanks Jorge) it has an excellent atmosphere and facilities. I have been here 3 weeks and hope to stay longer. It has a relaxed friendly atmosphere engendered by the guys who run it, the only downside is that it is a bit outside of the centre but there is a good but service day and night and there are some really unexpected aspects of old Malaga if you are prepared to take roads just to the west of Calle Victoria.

    Good tunes and good vibes in this groovy Andalucian villa. Slightly out of the way but for that you get what feels like an actual home. Far better than the city centre hostels. Three separate outdoor bits, with benches, hammocks etc., a good kitchen, bar. If you go solo, have a grasp of Spanish. Basic bedrooms, bit squeaky, not luxury, but adequate. Great for meeting people, but can be quiet in the winter. I will definitely be back! Best spot I found in Malaga.

    pros: Ready to help staff. Nice place and the atmosphere. Marvellous patio and the terrase. cons: Unconsiderate noisy people on the terrase just behind our window, partying till early morning (=3 o'clock AM approx.) + noisy usage of the rest room behind our door by them.

    Very Good

    Good things: Staff were friendly and accommodating. I arrived very late but got checked in easily. Lovely outdoor space to chill out. Bad things: The rooms and bed sheets had an unpleasant damp smell. There was only one power socket for the four beds in my dorm. Dorm room didn’t lock.

    Very noisy but the place with awful old creaky beds. The room backed on to a terrace and the noise was awful at all hours. If you want a party hostel, this might be the place for you. Otherwise, it’s not worth the money and ads far better places for the same price or cheaper!

    This hostel has a slightly uncomfortable vibe. Wouldn't reccomend staying here if you are a solo female traveller. Not really a young backpacker atmosphere. However most of the staff were friendly.

Casa Babylon Backpackers says

I think what makes our hostel extra-special is that it's like a big family, with all the character, kindness and personalisation of a home. We're linked to the artistic world because the owner is a musician and street performer, and there's always something going on like live concerts, juggling workshops, screenings, expositions of local artists, jam sessions, excursions by day and by night, paella parties and more.
Our hostel is for everyone and for all - anyone aged one to 99 is welcome!
We're located near the emblematic square of victory, the sanctuary and Gibralfaro - and despite being a five-minute walk from the centre (Plaza de la Merced), this is a residential area with forests and the nearby beach. Juan Carlos, Owner
