This place is unlike any hostel I've stayed at. It's like an inexpensive beach resort. You can see the sea from almost anywhere in the hostel. The hosts and staff are inviting and helpful. As a guest you get 10 percent off the bar for food and drinks and the portions are huge and some of the best prices in...

I stayed here with some friends for a weekend trip to Málaga. It was an excellent choice to stay here because the people working were friendly and provided information about Malaga, the rooms were clean, and the cafe was impressive for its unassuming appearance. It's in a good location relative to the beach, but it's a little out of the...

I enjoyed my stay at bella vista very much. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 10 bed ensuite dorm with sea view and balcony. The room was spacious and clean. They also have their own restaurant/bar where you can enjoy typical Spanish breakfast, lunch and dinner for reduced prices if you stay with them. I...

If you like to wake up by chill out music and continental breakfast with sea view, it's the right place to be. The hostel is very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. You can reach the city center easily by bus or bike.

Outstanding place for staying in Malaga without no doubts. It is placed in first line to the see, the rooms' balconies face the beach, so it's restaurant with delicious Spanish food. It's close to the city center, the staff is very nice, I felt like home and you have everything you need there. 10/10!

This is a nice hostel located near the beach of Malaga 20 min away from the city centre. The staff was really giving me a warm welcome. The owner Thierry is very nice and relaxed. Close walk to the beach, great view.

The best hostel I have been to till now in Spain. Sea side view is awesome and it can be viewed from all the rooms. The best part was the restaurant by which you like a special person living in a royal resort because of the sea side view while having lunch or dinner. All is excellent there with nice...

We got here by car and booked a private room, however we were also given a visit of the other rooms available including 6 bed hostel room, and decided to opt for the 6 bed since there were other people there. Awesome gesture of the owners to change it for us. We talked for a while with Thierry, very friendly,...
