You'll feel right at home here...

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed at Picasso's for seven nights & could easily have stayed more. The owners, Ben & Pippa made everyone feel at home, they loved talking with guests about the sights & attractions of Malaga & were forever recommending good places for Tapas nights out etc - they even copied me a translation sheet so that I didn't order anything unknown!!

Picasso's have now moved to bigger & better premises so I can't really comment on the facilities, all I can say is that from the website it looks fantastic and has had glowing reviews. They now have a bar, terraces & plasma tv for those who want to relax in front of the box! They still have free internet access & a wifi area and breakfast is included in the price too.

Unique Quality: You're made to feel really welcome.

Directions: Take bus 3 or 4 from the station to Paseo del Parque. Walk up Alcazabilla St to Plaza de la Merced. Walk across the square. San Juan de Letran is a small pedestrian street just past the bar called Week-end.

Best hostel in Malaga

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 13, 2005

I stayed at Picasso's Corner for 3 nights in Oct 2005 and must say it's one of the best places I've stayed at - I enjoyed my stay there despite feeling ill after a trip to Morocco from which I came to Malaga. The hostel was really like a home - I felt comfortable just being there and not feeling well didn't make me feel in any way depressed - I could watch dvds (they have a large collection of both new and old films), read guidebooks or fiction books (quite a good choice of literature, I must say) and also the kitchen was fully-equipped plus free tea/coffee all day long - so I didn't feel unhappy about staying all day in the hostel and not being out on the beach or in museums.
To make my assessment more structured, here goes:
location - excellent (Picasso museum and Alcazaba within 5 mins walking plus the main shopping streets and food market and everything that you might want - it's all very close)
staff and atmosphere - excellent - there are always people socializing in the common area - it's very warm and welcoming place to be and the staff are very friendly and helpful and always willing to answer all the questions
amenities - good (besides the usual bathrooms there is one bathroom that is private, that is, it's spacious and can be locked by the first person who gets there)
kitchen - v.good (big though a bit smelly fridge, plenty of pots and pans), good breakfast
safety - average (you get the key to the hostel entrance door, but there are no keys for the dorms. You can put the valuables in small safes, though)

This place is in the very center of the Centro HIstorico in a very nice old home. It had been open for only 5 weeks when I arrived and the people who were running it were the best. The place is laid back and really like home with couches and a TV in the living room area and a nice kitchen. There are private rooms that look like hotel rooms and the dorm rooms even have down comforters (winter) and personal safes.

Directions: Just opposite the Sede del Gobierno Civil and the Alcazaba in the HIstoric Center
