Normally we stay in Hotels as we have had some bad experiences with Hostals in the past. This time we were only here to sort some business out and would not be in the place much, so chose the Marbella Hostal. We were pleasantly surprised. It was very good. Clean, quiet and very friendly.

Friendly and helpful staff gave us very talkative and informative welcome to Fuengirola. From Hostal Marbella it's easy to head into the night. Everything worked flawlessly. Plus: + staff at reception + free wifi + air conditioning + location

The room was very comfortable, and situated in a really great location - both in terms of nightlife, restaurants and the beach. I would recommend staying at the Hostal Marbella if you want the above for a reasonable price

Quiet location, close to restaurants and centre of Fuengirola, a small city at the coast of Costa del Sol, next to the city of Marbella and not far from Mijas. Friendly reception, Swedish-Spanish style.

This place seems to get consistently good reviews. I don't get it. At 930 in the morning all doors were knocked by cleaners who had already woken me by their loud. echoing chat. My window looked into a courtyard where the smell of someone's cigarette smoke drifted unpleasantly into my room. At exactly midday, just as I was about to...
