I arrived in Malaga on 5th of January 2013. Our hostel Residencia Malaga Backpackers was located 3 km from the Malaga city centre to the East, in the street Jeronimo Bobadilla. I had a single room with a common bathroom. I felt cold the first two night before receiving a radiator.

The caña cost 2,50 euros, and the tapa was included in price. Tapas are medium appetizers or snacks. Continue reading
