NON REFUNDABLE rate will be charged any time after reservation has been made and the dates can't be change. FERIA AND SEMANA SANTA DATES ARE NON REFUNDABLE!

Important: With the aim of being completely transparent to all our guests, we want to inform you that there are works being done next to the hostel, the city is building a new metro line and unfortunately it can create noise nuisance. We are not able to provide you with the exact dates or times when the works will be noisy as it depends on the pace and contingencies of the construction.

We reserve the right to cancel any group booking that is made without contacting us beforehand or reservations made up of smaller reservations that add up to a group booking (i.e. 3 reservations of 4 people = 12).
Credit card payments are taken but we'd be happy bunnies if you pay in cash!

    The only downside is that if you don't have your lock, you can't lock your stuff. Except for that, everything was good. The atmosphere was great and there were activities with the hostel so it was easy to get the know the people. Cleanness was as good as it gets with so many people in one place. I've seen people scrubbing walls every morning, so they really do all they can in order to ensure maximum cleanness.

    Really enjoyed my stay here. The roof top is excellent, and with communal meals at a cheap price and a free cup of sangria, the atmosphere was the best of any hostel on my trip. I had a 4 bed dorm which was clean, had curtains, a window and an en suite bathroom with a shower. The hostel is near enough to the beach, bus station, sights and bars, and I'd highly recommend for any solo traveller, especially those looking to find people to explore malaga with!

    This is a decent hostel. Dirty and unkept but the atmosphere is incredible for meeting people and going out. The free sangria, cheap community dinner, and cheap pub crawl made our stay at lights worthwhile. We enjoyed the social aspect a lot.

    The bed frames are metal, which makes them very noisy and the “ladder” to get to the top bunk is slippery and dangerous. I found the rooms dirty. The hostel has amazing location and the dinners are always good.
