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.

    The Lights is a wonderful hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful! They make dinner every night and you only have to pay €3 and there is a kitchen if you prefer to cook your own meals. Great location, short walk to most popular places, the beach, shopping etc.

    I enjoyed my time and the other guests were very friendly but there was construction work going on outside my room which made it very loud. It didn't spoil my stay as I didn't spend much time in the room but it certainly wasn't ideal. Breakfast was good and the staff were helpful

    Comfy beds, good air conditioning, good lockers under the beds. Beds have curtains which is a plus. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Only problem was the super loud construction outside :(

    Good hostel in a prime location, staff is friendly. Communal areas are nice overall and activities are offered (free sangria, pub crawl) - kitchen is big and well equipped. During the day the common area is not the typical social space, though, as it is on the highest floor and people don't come by naturally on their way out. The rooftop terrace does not offer shade and could be cozier. A bit odd is that you have to ask at reception to come to your room to turn on the A/C.

    Nice save place , the 1.5 euro breakfast was worth 1.5. The showers clean enough but the water was not going away. Little bit outdated hostel. Location is very good.

    The building is pretty hard to find. Theres not exactly a stand out sign. The pictures dont show the hostel properly and make it look nicer than it is. The location is decent enough to get to the beach and the staff did help with printing and explaining things. Overall a decent enough place but def not worth the price
