The hostel itself is not bad, just another hostel with charm. HOWEVER, the treatment I received after being sexually attacked was rather shocking and saddening. While I was asleep, the man I was sharing the dorm with that night woke me up by masturbating and speaking very offensively to me. I had to pretend to be asleep for 45 minutes...

The rooms in the hostel are quite spacious, whether you dorm or get a private room, and there are a variety of lounging areas indoor and outdoor if you want to hang around the hostel. If the weather is good you can read or rest in a hammock, play table tennis or lounge on the outdoor couches. Breakfast was included...

Colourful and relaxing, set away from the bustle of Malaga yet an easy walk to everything you need. My only regret is that I didn't have longer to stay here! Incredibly kind and helpful staff, gourmet kitchen facilities, beautiful chillout space, outdoor gardens with hammocks and they even have a bar serving their own locally brewed beers. All set within...

perfect people, perfect spot, where you will meet Kindness and good advice. Everything expected will be satisfied. There is good music all the time, meals can be prepared for you if needed. You go to Malaga, then go to casa babylon and your travel will be just as perfect as possible

Great hostel with relaxing atmosphere. When i was there, there was a mexican night with all kind of food. Nice places to relax in the hostel. Very near to beach and city center. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The hostel itself really quaint and colorful. There are quite a few common areas and the staff is very welcoming. They do their best to make you feel home. The only downside was the lack of plugs in the dorm... but apart from that the hostel was fine. I really enjoyed my stay there!

I was pleasantly surprised to find these folks completely welcoming of a family with a small child- the folks at Babylon were just incredible, kind and friendly and always went out of their way to help. We felt very at home here, all the amenities were great, beds super comfortable and even with the room facing the terrace/bar, we slept...

I've got to say I was impressed by the the hostels of Malaga being friendly & helpful. 'Oasis' sent me to 'Feel' when full, who sent me to 'Babylon' when they were full too. I was only here for one night, at very short notice desperate for a bed & shower. The staff were very helpful & the place is...

This place has something that I've never found in any other hostels. It's like your home the minute after you come in. When I arrived, from the corridor I could smell the fresh cleanliness and the scent of summer. The decoration and design are amazing, everything was simple but beautifully conjugated. I was in a 6 bed bedroom and I...

I spent in Casa Babylon 3 nights in October 2012 and must say that it's definitely not just a place to sleep. The design of the rooms and social area makes it very easy to spend time with other people in an easy and relaxing mood. There was just a bunch of people in the hostel at that time, but...

“The downstairs room with a window onto the bar area is probably not a great room to get good sleep in, as they often play music till late.”
