A lot of things are free, but we need to take a returnable deposit to ensure they don't go walkabout (5 Euro).

Cancellation policy: There is a 24 hours cancellation policy, failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay (cancellations need to be done 1 day prior arrival date). NON REFUNDABLE rate will be charged any time after reservation has been made and the dates can't be change.

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 apology in advance for any inconvenience caused and are offering free earplugs at reception to help with the issue.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We may preauthorize your card to check if it is valid. If not, we will contact you. If you do not get back to us, we may cancel your booking.

Group bookings: 6 people or more is a group booking. We may have special conditions and suplements for groups. Please contact us before if you and we will try to put you in the same room. 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!

We only accept adult above the age of 18 years old, no children under the age of 18 years old can sleep in shared dormitories. Children can sleep in private rooms only if the are accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.

We think we have thought of everything to make your stay amazing. And if we haven't please let us know...ok that's it folks...Hope to see you in Malaga!

*when you book they give you full elaborate details of how to reach them. I followed the instructions coming from the airport. It couldn't be more user friendly. Smooth, nice & easy! *I loved the fact that in the showers, they had hooks on the doors and on top of that the shower curtain. Your stuff stay dry whilst you showering. No stress. *Cleanliness was top and the cleaning ladies lovely! *Best location ever! * I simply can go through every detail but instead I'll just HIGHLY RECOMMEND it ❤

Lights has an amazing staff and a great overall vibe. The location is super close to both the beach and the town center. While the cleanliness is decent, be prepared for minimal AC in the rooms. Additionally, the lockers are good for keeping valuables safe, but they won't accommodate all your luggage.
