    Wonderful hostel. Because of the pandemic we received a sealed bag with our bed linen, and only half the beds were occupied, which was great. There was a really nice vibe in the hostel and met nice people. The free sangria in the evenings is a plus!! The kitchen is like an industrial kitchen, it’s great!! The aircon in the room was also a life saver. We’ll be back!

    Great stay in the heart of Malaga! It was a fun hostel even during COVID times. The staff was very nice and friendly, and all precautions were taken care of. The common area + kitchen is a bit small for more than 30 people, but the vibe was excellent! There are few parking garages around if you’re traveling by car.

    A simple hostel but good value for money. The hostel is located at the entrance to the city center, just opposite the market. It's a 20 minute walk to the train and bus station and a nice stroll to all tourist attractions. I checked in with the self-service (lockbox) and it worked perfectly fine. I have not seen any staff or noticed any atmosphere as I arrived during the night and left in the early morning, but I'm sure that it's really nice here during the day. I recommend this hostel!

    Super hostel, one of the cleanest I've stayed at. The beds are great firm and comfortable. I meet some lovely people here. I think my only issue was that the kitchen closed at 11. Now being Irish the kitchen is the sitting room back home and not being able to make a cuppa is torture. The terrace also closes early, now this I understand as surrounding inhabitants need their shut-eye fair enough. Besides this I had a pleasant stay. Free wine after 8!! I would stay there again if ever in the area.

    The room was nice and I liked that the beds had curtains. The en-suite bathroom was clean and had a great shower. This hostel was really loud. There’s no quiet hours or curfew posted so just be warned. And there’s no night staff to complain to. I had girls come into the room from a night out turning on lights, banging around, taking a shower at THREE AM. People went in and out of the hostel all night/morning at top volume. It was impossible to sleep.
