Malaga Beach and Center Backpackers Malaga Hostel Review and Information

I had an amazing, very chilled out, time in the hostel. The staff felt like family and I loved just sitting on the terrace overlooking the water. Great for a quiet few days of relaxation, plus so so soooo close to the beach which was perfect. - Anonymous
