... first impression of the hostel was not the greatest; the crowd was full of older burnt out hippy types along with the scattered normal college-age backpackers like ourselves, only there because it was the cheapest place in town. Everything seemed a bit grungy and cramped, dirty and overused. But for eight euros a night, I'll deal. That ended up being theme of the week. Most things in the city were sub-par, including the beach, grocery store, and the streets ...
... just aren't the same when you don't understand the language
So while we were getting freezing cold drinking our last drink we figured that everyone we had come in with was gone and even others arriving after us had left.. We were clearly hard core. haha. But we realised that you are supposed to have one drink in the ice bar, then you get cold and get to go sit out in the nice area of the bar out the front. Ha not for us though.
We couldn't find an ATM so slowly made our ...
... in Spanish to them, they haven't even heard of Australia. One person thought it was a town in northern Spain.
So yeah most of Malaga was a joke; just getting wasted, sweating profusely in the heat, enduring reggaeton music at the clubs, staying out till sunrise, then sleeping till the afternoon. Only other stuff we did was hit the beach, with its ****** sand and ...
... be said for my husband who, for reasons only understood by himself, ploughs straight through the mud with not a care in the world. It goes over the tops of his trainers and splashes high up his legs. To say he looks a sight is an understatement. Fellow climbers stare at his nonchalance in shocked silence, their faces though, betray their horror as they turn to each other, and me. Frankly, I am embarrassed. Why mine? I question him, and he reacts with irritation saying that ...
... evening. On getting up we see the weather is rainy and the hills are covered with cloud. Not the kind of day to set out on a hike over a mountain with no one knowing where you are. Sadly we decide to go back to the coast in search of better weather.Estapona doesn't disappoint, nor does the very expensive and immaculate campsite a little further down the road at Manilva. Again it's a good excuse to get some washing done and have a chat with other campers on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Don Curro Hotel Málaga
The location is great -- right in the historic district within walking distance of many interesting sites. However, we found it very hard to find because of the many pedestrian-only streets. Finally came across a tourist bureau that gave up complicated but helpful directions, winding around the Cathedral. Drive out of town to the airport was very straightforward --important to us because we had to return a rental car there before an early flight.
Great choice for a short stay
Stayed here one night after a week in Marbella. We wanted a hotel in town so we could re-visit the Cafe de Paris (a Michelin star restaurant just a walk away - if you're there, try the tasting menu, it's perfect) and to be fairly near the airport (12 Euros by taxi). The hotel was very good value (we were upgraded for free to a room on the 7th floor on the west side, with a balcony and afternoon sunshine - perfect for a winter afternoon). The rooms are basic international, clean, no frills but very pleasant. There's a cafe next door for a cheap breakfast and all the shops and restaurants in town are just a walk away. This would be our first choice for a short stay.
Stayed the weekend 16-18 Dec 2005. Exceptional for the money. Excellent position in town, superbly clean. Rated as 3 star. Perhaps should be more. Reccommended.
A great surprise
Struggled to find accomodation anywhere on the Costa del Sol and after hours searching, we happened upon the Don Curro and boy were we lucky. The rooms were very spacious , cool, clean and quiet. The air conditioning was a pleasure to experience and we found it hard to believe we were actually in the middle of a large city. Very well placed for the shops and minutes away from the beaches. The hotel lacks a pool which detracts slightly from its overall effect. One point worth mentioning is the parking. If you don't park in the hotel's car park (quite expensive) then beware getting a parking ticket when parked on the street (weekdays) after 8am. Parking in the daytime is a nightmare.
Just spent 3 nights in Malaga. Stayed at the Don Curro Hotel and here are some of our thoughts:
Good value for money
Great location at the edge of the old town with easy walking access to all points of interest; clean hotel with reasonable service (sometimes check-in staff looks a bit stressed); watch out for bargains (paid 40 Euros for a single room on last minute basis)
Excellent Value For Money!
Clean, spacious room, and even the air con was working!!! right in the city centre, longer way from the beaches. Breakfast ok/mediocre, but a bit chatic because you actually have to order from a waiter and they don't always speak very good english. The maid came to clean everyday, the cleanliness was absolutely superb, overall the stay in Don Curro was a very good experince, I would recommend for anyone looking for value for their money!
Very central hotel - a great base to see the city!!!
Stayed here for 3 nights last week. The hotel is very central and makes an excellent base to see the city from!
Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in this great city!!!!
Decent and affordable
A decent, clean hotel with professional staff. They have four or five floors, but don't worry, there's an elevator. We booked the most affordable room, and it was clean, fresh, bathroom was nice.
Location of the hotel is very near a main pedestrian walkway and near the Picasso Museum and the main cathedral. Would recommend it.
Stayed at the Don Curro a couple of times its easy to get to when flying into Malaga, and the flight we usually take gets us there on a Sunday evening and they do a cheap weekend rate.There is a nice Cafe 2 mins walk from the hotel and it is nicely positioned for the cathedral and other points of interest in Malaga. It is very clean and I would recommend it to anybody.
