I want to come back to this hostel if I ever have the chance! There are so many activites organised by the hostel (e.g. day trips to islands for snorkelling and kitesurfing) which would otherwise be hard to find. Staff were really helpful and friendly, breakfast is decent, no problems with the Wifi. The only two problems were the noise...

It is a nice hostel with great facilities like jitchen, tv, movies, books, common qreas. The room was fine and the staff were very kind and friendly. It is in the center but a bit far from the beach.. The hostel is very clean.

The staff at babia were very friendly and very helpful with anything you need. It was more like staying at someone's house than a hostel as they were very welcoming. I would definitely recommend babia to anyone travelling in malaga, the location is excellent and it is a very sociable and relaxed atmosphere.

Besides the great location, everything else sucked! We had to wait 15 minutes for someone to help us check in, and when we finally did, there were administrative issues. The bathrooms were messy and the rooms were cramped. It was noisy at night (Friday night) because there's a bar/club right underneath that's part of the hostel, so even though the...

We have booked the Babia hostel to stay the night during our trip. I didn't know what to expect of the hostel, but when we arrived it was very nice. The hostel was a little hard to find in the beginnning, but soon we discoverd the short way and it was really close to the city centre. The room was...

It's a perfect B&B place: clean, in the center of Malaga, very close to everything and the stuff is great! As a solo traveler you can make a lot of friends and have fun. The owners of the hostel are 2 great guys and they are organizing all the time something at their cafe downstairs, so can people from the...
