Cheap and cheerful hostel.
Chinitas urban hostel was in a great location. Close to all amenities. The front house staff were great, very knowledgeable about the area and with a good understanding of English. The hostel was also very clean. My only complaint would be that the four bed dorm was tiny, I had to unpack on the floor as there was very little space. You must remember though that the price of staying here is very cheap so I do not think it is fair complaining.

In the Heart of Historic Malaga
I stayed one night in Chinitas but found it to be a great experience at a backpacker's level. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and secure, the hostel itself was very secure, and the bathroom was clean and water was hot. I stayed in a four-bed, mixed dorm. The area is popular and therefore can be noisy in the evening until late but the hostel provides free ear plugs. The hostel is very well situated: a 5-10 min. walk from the airport Linea A bus (Passe del Parque - or also called the Marina stop - the second to the last), is inside the historic center, near the Cathedral, Roman Theatre and AlCazba Fort as well as the night scene. The rooftop terrace provided a nice view of the Cathedral. Breakfast (by coupon) was simple toast and coffee in the restaurant next door but was very welcome. I would stay there again.

great value
The hostel is in a great location. It's clean and in good condition. The only negative is the bathroom was so warm. They could do with some better ventilation in there. But it was clean so that's all that matters really. Staff on reception were all very friendly.
