This hostel was ok. It does have the potential to be great. The building is real nice they have loads of little chill out areas. The bedrooms are big. The staff are very friendly.
Casa Babylon is more than a hostel - it's a place to share your travel and personal experiences with all the other cosmopolitans and backpackers. Come here and spend a pleasant time with all of us who find ourselves here, enchanted by the spirit of green Andalucia.
We are situated in the district of Victoria, just a five minute walk from Plaza de la Merced, the historical and cultural centre of Málaga; here you can visit Cervantes theatre, Picasso's birthplace house, the cathedral and a wide variety of bars, tea shops, restaurants, etc.
Our hostel has been renovated for your travel comfort. Our rooms are clean and you can enjoy our common area, chill out zone, terrace and bar where you can try some of our refreshing cocktails or spend time listening to a variety of world music (skareggaecumbiapunkbalcanifusion!)
It is said that travelling is the best investment, to meet different people and to get to know their customs and traditions. If all this is what you are looking for then Casa Babylon is your home away from home.

This hostel was ok. It does have the potential to be great. The building is real nice they have loads of little chill out areas. The bedrooms are big. The staff are very friendly. On our first night we had trouble with a guy in the room getting in at 6 and smoking in bed and getting aggressive when we told him he couldnt smoke. The next morning we told the main guy and he said he would sort it. We returned to find the guy had been kicked out which was a nice surprise as most hostels wouldnt do this. The down side of this place is that its not clean. Infact we stayed 4 nights and i didnt once see a cleaner. I suffer from bad asthma and have unfortunetly come away with a really bad chest due to the amount of dust i think i must have breathed in. Its a shame as the hostel is ok other than this. 1 or 2 nights here is ok but anymore and youll be reaching for your inhaler quicker than you can say hover!
I liked the oriental atmosphere in the back yard. The hostel was located rather off-centre though and you really need a bus or taxi to get there from the train station/ bus station. There were rumours of items being stolen from a locker. Staff was very friendly.
