Chinitas Urban Hostel
Strong plusses and minuses
The location of this hostel is second to none. When I arrived I was greeted in a very helpful and friendly manner by the reception staff; I met probably four different reception members throughout the stay and they were all excellent. The rooms are small and simple, but very satisfactory with pretty decor and working air conditioning, lots of power points, decent bedding, and bedside lights. The major issue I had with the hostel is the bathroom situation. The bedrooms are situated over two floors - you are only able to gain access to your own floor with your key. So far, so good. But there is only one bathroom to service the whole floor of, I think, five rooms, and this takes the form of a unisex bathroom with two toilet cublicles and two unlockable shower cubicles. I walked in to brush my teeth one morning to encounter two naked men. Not on the whole a bad experience, but certainly not a comfortable one! I personally would feel uncomfortable showering there, and having to walk the corridor back to my room in a towel as there is no changing space. Also, the mirrors are very high on the walls in the bathroom and none anywhere else, for instance none in the bedrooms, so for girls wanting to do their makeup it's a bit of an issue. I stayed at the hostel with friends so got to see three different rooms, so feel like I have a fair overview. If I had been a single female I would not have showered there. My only other complaint was the internet connection, not very good at all.

Convenient and clean hotel
Good location right in the heart of Malaga. Room was comfortable with heating easily accessible when needed. 24hr access and helpful staff available. Tourist information provided a lot of travel option which was located a few metres from accommodation. However, if you are a light sleeper, patrons at he the bar can sometimes be loud. The jolly effect of alcohol. Lol!

clean but a little loud
2 nights in Chinitas. Excellent central location and clean hostel. It was loud and struggled to sleep first night, but to be expected in such a central location with a bar above you.
