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.

Our group of 6 stopped at Dulce Dreams for coffee and cakes.

The place looks nice: A hip boutique cafeteria on the alleys of the historic district.

The service is friendly, and we got a good table for 6 even if it was a busy Semana Santa day.

We ordered cheese cakes (brownie and raspberry), pumpkin cake, carrot cake, cappuccino, americano, fresh juice, etc. Everything was great, looked nice, and tasted good, and the cakes were served with beautiful cream.

The only thing that was not good were the prices. Coffee, the trendy juices, and the cakes were all priced a little bit above the usual standards. When multiplied with 6, the overall experience was ”a bit pricey”.

Our second time to stay at the lovely Dulces Hostel.
Fantastic staff, beautiful view from room, very clean, delicious breakfast, right in the heart of Malaga. Walk to all the sights.
Nice restaurants and bars close by.
Amazing value.
Will be back again for sure.

We ate a delicious toast and salad on the sunny terras of this hostel. The waiter was very kind and helpful. But most importantly, I ate the best brownie ever. This is no light rating - and I eat brownies often, trust me - but this one was a-ma-zing! Definitely homemade and just overall jummy! I would recommend everyone to visit this place on the cozy plaza de los martires!

We stayed here early in 2018 and it was lovely to have this cafe downstairs for great light breakfasts. Their desserts are also very good, especially their carrot cake.
