We stayed at Dulce Dreams during Holy Week leading up to Easter and the location is in central Malaga so you're minutes from shops, tapas bars, the Roman ruins and entrance to Castillo Gibralfaro. The easiest way to get here is by taxi but during Easter some of the roads were closed.
We stayed in a quadruple room with private bathroom. All really clean and basic and you have easy access to the roof terrace where you can have drinks or lunch. The hostel can get noisy. We were staying with our young son so we took blackout blinds and speakers to play white noise and got a good night's sleep.
This isn't a standard hostel and be aware you don't have access to a kitchen or fridge where you can make your own food. However, there is a cute cafe downstairs that serves delicious coffees, cakes, fresh juices, wine, flavoursome food and is open until 9pm. Also, if you ask nicely you can eat your own food in the cafe area.
What really sets this place apart is the staff: genuinely helpful, friendly and informative. The only reason I haven't given the hostel 5 out of 5 is because when we stayed it was very expensive because it was Easter.
