    You'll feel right at home here...

    by

    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

    by

    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)

  • Best Budget Place

    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
