sarfron Quirky and unusual, with a strong Moroccan influence. You'll either love it or hate it -- I absolutely loved it despite the lack of a shower curtain that resulted in a slightly flooded bedroom. My room was clean and the bed more comfortable than any of the other five hotels I stayed at during this trip. The host is charming and helpful, and his four-legged assistant, Maurice the pug is just adorable. The only downsides are the lack of breakfast facilities and the slightly intimidating surrounding streets. The Riad itself is lovely, but set in a rather seedy area in the Arab quarter. As a lone woman traveller, I felt wary in the neighbourhood after dark, though I had no problems. I never did find the nearby cafe which has a breakfast arrangement with the Riad, but ended up at an Irish bar in the Plaza which served me a huge tumbler of fresh orange juice, large cup of coffee and half a toasted baguette stuffed with spanish ham and melted cheese, all for E2.80! Cheaper than the place I couldn't find. There is also tea and coffee available any time at the Riad. I only travelled with carry on luggage and found the Riad within easy walking distance of both bus and train for the airport as well as being close to the cathedral and moorish forts. I will certainly stay there again on my next visit to Malaga.
tatreacy This lodge is absolutely charming. The location is perfect, on a tiny little street, no traffic, and behind a church....yet, a perfectly wonderful short walk to town. My room was large with a balcony.The house is spotless. The kitchen is so well fitted, a lovely place to start the day. The owner is completely accomodating. I highly reccomend.
craig_fall great location in malaga, nice people and kept very clean, quite basic but great for the money. thanks

yoli_domin The stuff of La Casa Mata Backpackers were very nice and friendly!! They were available for evrything we needed...they were really useful! Thanks for everything!
BN Location is absolutely lovely: right in the center and only 15 min walking to the beach. The staff is friendly. The rooms were ok but could have been cleaner. Also in the showers, some of them didn't have warm water or the lock on the door was broke. The hostel offered a lot of activities (the free walking tour was amazing) and also the pub crawl was very nice. I would recommend this hostel, price-value it's good!
tmjungling Absolutely loved this place! The people were so friendly and welcoming. The rooms were amazing. No TVs or air con (did get a bit warm, a fan would have been good), but they are decorated with quaint antiques and artefacts. Really has a lot of character. Also they provided the best breakfast of any other place Ive stayed at. And free flamenco on Thursdays! In a cool part of town with lots of tapas bars to choose from. Would definitely return here and highly recommend it!
