I stayed here over a single night in February before heading to the Caminito del Rey in February. My overall experience was exceptionally mixed, with some positive and some more negative aspects. I found the hostel difficult to find. Calle Álamos is easy enough to find, but the hostel itself is not marked with a sign. It is located at...

In the room was very cold, smelly because of just painted doors or other furnitures. There are only one bathroom in the floor, it means girls must go to the bathroom in one floor, boys - other floor. WC and showers don't have any lockers, shower is only with curtain...

Located in the heart of the city, nice to walk around the city from here. The place is clean, safe and nice. Great stop when traveling to Malaga, I would return. The manager is a very nice person and cares about his business, listening to people`s feedback, such he immediately bought double glazed windows so that there is no noise...

I just stayed in room 8. The room is clean, bed is comfortable. But the noise from the hallway and people walking past the door and lights on and off leave me, sadly, to post my first bad review. Not recommendable at all, unless you need to stay awake. Toilets, clean, but very small like a horse box, and not...

Very Good. Newly (3 months) opened hostel in central location. Everything fresh and new in an old and stylish townhouse. Is on a busy street but double glazing gives good soundproofing. Huge room with balcony. We stayed in October so heat not an issue but the room did not have a/c. Huge fan in the room and it did look...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostel Malaga City is an hostel placed in the center of Malaga. We have plenty of spacious and colorful rooms in a modern 3-floor builing, newly restructured (in June 2016) and still presenting a beautiful style typical of the 19th century, such as marble stairs and fronting onto a beautiful courtyard with marble stairs , giving great beauty to the building. At the Hostel Malaga City we love our costumers and would like them to feel at ease in in a friendly and relaxed environment. Hostel Malaga city is located in the center of Malaga but easily accessible by car, making it the perfect place for backpackers and tourists who want to explore the city, looking for culture, or simply tapas! For example, it takes just 3 minutes to get to the Picasso Museum. The Malaga Cathedral, the Alcazaba , the Roman Theatre, the very famous street Larios and the Docks are "por supuesto" incredibly close to the strucure, just a few minutes walk from our hostel. The Pompidou museum , the MIMMA (Museo Interactivo de la Música de Málaga) and the museum of Glass are are other cultural offerings you can find in Málaga, and yet very close to our Hostel. Last but not the least, the Hostel is also very close to the recenlty renovated Mercado de la Merced, a great place where one can go "tapear" (if you had not known yet, yes: in Spanish there is a verb for the action of going for tapas!). The "Malagueta" beach is also a well-known attraction in Málaga. You can certainly go there for having a bath in the sea, but much more! Full with little bar-restaurants (the so-called "chiringutos") you will certainly very soon feel like tasting some of the best grilled fish of Andalucía, the "boquerones" for example, and (why not?) enjoying your meal with a glass of refreshing sangría or tinto de verano? Like all hostels, our Hostel Malaga City has a shared kitchen too, perfect for for guests looking to cook for themselves in between sight-seeing or relaxing while sharing stories with the other guests or planning your day out using the free wi-fi. ... more   less
