This was my third visit to El Escudo. My daughter and I stayed for four nights. As I have previously said the hostel is ideally situated for the pueblo. Despite being so close to the centre it has a lovely peacefulness. Scrupulously clean throughout. We stayed in room 2 this time, the beds were comfortable. The lady at the desk...

Myself and my husband stayed here for 4 nights in August. We were amazed at how beautiful our room was. We stayed in Room 4 and had a small Juliette balcony with wonderful views down to the sea. The little touched ie the toothbrush and tooth paste, razor, shower gels and the mini bar really helped to make our stay...

We were really amazed at the quality of the accommodation and services at this hostel. More like a little boutique hotel! Perfectly located in a quiet spot off the main town square and a short walk to the restaurants with fabulous sea views (just round the corner really). Our room was on the first floor and had patio doors leading...

Room very clean with AC and lots of little extra touches of things you might need. Staff friendly and helpful. One minute from busy main square but you would never know it as its so peaceful a lovely place we would both go back in a heart beat.

Arrived on 24 march for 3 nights and were given room 2 which didn't have a balcony or sea view. This was quickly amended by the attentive receptionist. The room was quaint,comfortable and quiet with excellent WiFi. The only downfall is the journey to the hostal from the car park,which would be difficult for older people.

If you need a lovely clean room / apartment for a very reasonable price e.g. £40 per night then look no further. No food but it is in central Mijas surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Park down the road in the municipal car park for 1 euro per day! All good!
