Overview

If you fancy a beach holiday and a city break at the same time, look no further than The Lights Hostel in downtown Málaga. We're set in a historical building with an awesome rooftop terrace – just made for soaking up the sun and having a laugh with some amigos. We'll even sort out free Sangria every evening to really get you into the Spanish spirit. Join one of our free walking tours to find the best local hot spots, and the tastiest tapas in town! We serve a cheap buffet breakfast every morning, so tuck in before you head off for a day by the sea.

Location

If you're flying into Málaga Airport, getting to us is easy. Pick up the C1 train to Centro Alameda station. From there, it's a five-minute walk to reach us. We're a half-hour stroll from Playa de la Malagueta, which is rated one of the best beaches in Málaga. It's lively at night, with beachfront bars serving cold cervezas and seafood. La Alcazaba, Málaga's 11th-century fortress, is an 11-minute walk away. The views from the top make for some great selfies.

Rooms and Dorms

Every single one of our rooms has a balcony for you to check out views across the city. Our key-card accessible rooms are as cool as they are comfy, thanks to air con and deep-sprung beds. Coming in the winter season? We've got free blankets to keep you cosy. Bed linen is included, and you'll have your own locker to store your backpack (just remember a padlock if you have valuables). For a small deposit, we'll sort you out with fresh towels too.

Extras and activities

Getting ready to party? Our hairdryers and straighteners are free to use! And tap into our free Wi-Fi to keep sneaky data costs down – there's even coverage on the terrace so you can FaceTime mates and show them what they're missing. Time to explore? Grab a free city map or hire a bike from our 24-hour reception.

    I stayed in one of their suites and it was super nice! I really enjoyed my stay and the woman from the reception was very friendly and helped with any kind of problem. In addition, the location is just perfect and I would absolutely stay there again!

    Awesome stay. Staff super friendly and helpful! There is a nice common area by the reception to chill and a rooftop terrace. The whole hostel is well organized and equipped. I wish I could've stayed longer there!

    Fabulous

    12 Jul 2021
    Hostel was nice, quite hot in communal areas. Didn’t really use the kitchen but seemed to have it all there. There seemed to be lots on such as rooftop sangria etc to help mix people together. Someone was having very loud sex in the dorm, but that’s not really the hostels fault. You’re given your bedding to make the bed yourself. €2 for breakfast which is just toast or cereal so not worth it. Good bathrooms and showers. Beds are comfy and have curtains round for privacy.

    Room wasn’t exactly like it looked on the pictures (slightl different and smaller bathroom, same with the balcony) but besides that a great stay, couldn’t have asked for anything better for this price and a 2 person room.

    Very Good

    16 Jul 2021
    Overall, I stayed here for four nights. The hostel is very centrally located near historic center and around 20 minute walk from the beach. It was relatively easy to meet people and the free sangria was definitely a plus! Only downside is that you are required to make your own bed with the linens and the staff doesn’t seem overly friendly. Also, the rooftop closes quite early but I think that’s a common trend during COVID. I would recommend!

    Not so clean and I think it is over priced to what it is. I understand that Malaga might be more expensive than other Andalusian’s cities, but still. Rather than that, the hostel is good and its location is very good I believe.
