Family owned hostel with amazing views of the bay from the terrace resteraunt and bar. Very relaxed and friendly, perfect to escape the noise and bustle of the city. The staff were lovely. I look forward to returning soon.

I was a little apprehensive about staying in a hostal (this was my first time out of the country) but was pleasantly surprised by Bellavista Playa. The owners were so friendly and we were directly across from the beach. It is close to the bus stop and about a 25 min walk from the Alcazaba. The breakfast was a great... More

The staff here is really awesome and friendly. Extremely accommodating. They even have a great restaurant attached where if you're staying you get 10% off dinner and alcohol. My boyfriend says their burger is one of the best he's ever had. Good options for vegetarians. The patio is nice to just have a few beers and hang with other people... More

Very neat and clean room, and the staff was super friendly. Only some spoke English, but we managed to figure it out anyway with my rusty Spanish and a little bit of sign-language. The hostel is approx. 20-30 min from the city centre, which suited me fine, since I enjoy walking. It was also easy to find, and right by... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
