Newly Opened! X Hostel is now in Malaga!!!! Free Welcome beer! Nightly pub crawls! Boat Party! Free Daily Walking Tour! Daily Events! Wi-Fi in all rooms! Fully equipped Guest Kitchen! and more :)

If you are looking for a sociable hostel to meet new people then look no further. We have daily events to make meeting other travellers very easy. We also have an exceptional location in the centre of historical Malaga on the streets Picasso played as a child (he was born on the next street which is now the Picasso fundacion/museum), there is also a statue of Picasso sat on a bench at the end of our street which no tourist can walk past without resisting stopping for a photo sat next to him.

We are located on a small pedestrianized street next to the popular plaza Merced, surrounded by many bars and cafes. On our small street alone there is tapas, Japanese, Veggie, and Spanish restaurants. Our street is a very lively/vibrant street popular with locals during the evening which many of our guests love.

We are located a short walk from all the other historical sights (see photo) so this gives you more time to hit the beaches (ten minute walk away). There is a supermarket and a indoor local produce market on the next street as well, where you can buy cheap and fresh food. Plus countless fast food joints less than a minute walk from the hostel.

X Hostel is a chain of hostels owned by backpackers who know what makes a great hostel, we are not a huge hostel and this makes for more of a personal feel where you can get to know people easier, so why not come and join us for a great time at X Hostel Malaga - Picasso's Hangout!!!
