this is a fake profile only made to add more lies to the previous review, you are talking about a robbery which is a very serious matter for us, surprisingly we didnt hear anything about it during your stay, so to take this review as true we need a police report or claim paper ... our staff has been working...

Absolutely dirty hostel. Uncomfortable beds. Towels don't get changed for you and cheap for a reason. Rude staff who are threatening if they don't like you. Would not recommend. I am a slim lad and even I could not get in the shower properly as it is very small. Only half of my body could get in the shower. Staff... More

Hostel Berlin is good choice to stay in Marbella. Perfect location in a charming street with lots of plants, very central, beach is across the street. Rooms are clean, have tv, aircondition, wifi. Cleaning is every day, stuff is very polite . Everything is near, shops, restaurants, bus station. I do recommend!

Very helpful staff and nice, clean accommodation! Did not really know what to expect but the reviews were good so I decided to give it a try. It seems that it is not a hostel you would be typically expecting but rather a mini hotel with daily cleaning. There are also towels you can borrow to head to the beach.... More

Great location near the old town and close to the beach. Very clean, friendly, great value. Wish we stayed for more nights. Yes the shower is small, but it got me clean and I'm not exactly petit. Definitely recommend to anyone, nice and quiet too
