This is a famous zone with a beautiful beach and very near to the funniest places in the city, there´s a lot of tipical restaurants, with "flamenco" music, traditional bars and pubs, all located very near from the hostel. In the area there´s also the famous bullring 'La Maestranza'. Near the Hostel there´s a lot of singular streets, that makes feel to the visitor like walking in a ancient neighborhood of fishermen, with a lot of places where take the best flavors in Malaga. Today still you can find fishermen selling fishes right in the streets... You can find here the old Malaga´s beach: 'La Malagueta', just in front of our Hostel. Enjoy the sun and relax!...

Also we´ve a great and nice terrace!... This is the best place to meet the rest of the travellers, take breakfast, read a book..., or to taste the especiality dishes that 'Papi' makes all days with special care: Vegetarian food, barbecue, fishes and of course, paella!... Breakfast and certainly sheets are included in our prices per night. We offer too: free maps of the city, social games and the best recomendations about Málaga and arround.


All our rooms have private bathroom, and depending of the size, we´ve: 4, 8, or 10 beds inside, and a double room too. The security lookers are big enough and we´re proud to offer very new beds, comfortables and always clean. Cleanliness it´s a very important thing to us and always we Take care about it.
