“Badly located, serviceable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2006

The Good:
It was very cheap
It was clean
There were no outstanding problems that made it unliveable.

The Bad:
The room was small, with no air-conditioning
It was located in the middle of nowhere - a 25 minute bus ride gets you to the centre
No power sockets in the room(!)
The included breakfast was very poor
Due to recent lock changes, you have to ring the buzzer to get the front door open - however, sometimes no one was manning the buzzer.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2005

No aircon, lousy location, shabby furniture, no facilities worth mentioning.

OK this is a cheap hostal but even by hostal standards this was poor. If nothing else the location will put you off. A good 20 minute bus ride from Malaga City Centre with few places of interest nearby. A few local bars/restaurants with freindly enough locals but not of a particulary high standard. Much more choice in the City.

Our twin bedded room was stiflingly hot and there was plenty noise from other guests coming & going. Very difficult to get a good nights rest.

Do yourself a favour - if your budget can stretch to 10/20 Euros a night more go for a centrally located Hotel or hostal. The Las Vegas Hotel by the beach (15 minutes walk from cenral Malaga) was not much more expensive but 10 times better.

Stayed July 2005
