My friend and I had a great time on the walking tour with Max! He was very friendly and answered all our questions. He also showed us some delicious tapas places around the center and made us feel like a local :) The atmosphere was great and as you would expect from a hostel, lots of like-minded adventurers together that are enjoying life!

Nice, clean, gorgeous hostel. Very organized and spacious. Only complaint is that the evening pub crawls were always quite boring
My friends and I booked the 4 person apartment that is advertised as part of Oasis. We assumed we would still be part of the hostel and able to enjoy all the aspects of staying at a hostel (social environment, amenities, etc.). However, the apartment was half a mile apart (and not a fun walk in 40 F weather in the morning). We felt very deceived by this apartment being advertised in association with Oasis. It is something I would expect to book from a site like Airbnb or VRBO, not hostelworl
The staff told me they could book the Alhambra visit for me if I wanted without telling they would make me pay an additional 2 euros for that. Moreover, they told me it was essential to book online but in reality in November there are not so many tourists and you don't wait a lot to enter the Alhambra. They just wanted their fee.

I was a bit disappointed with the service. The breakfast was late one of the days, the lady at the desk didn't seem that genuine with giving advice, I sort of had to initiate the question of "what should I do while I'm here". The shower head kept dropping and the bathroom wasn't that clean. I must commend though, Michael, the tour guide on the hike and the city tour, he was amazing! I gained so much knowledge from him and just a very approachable guy! I loved the layout of the hostel too
The rooms could be cleaner; the beds were not comfortable; the kitchen was often very dirty.
This hostel has great locations, very closed to everything you would need. Also, it's very easy to meet people in the hostel, everyone is very nice and chill. Most of the time, you can just talk to people chilling at the roof terrace. However, the really down side of the hostel is the cleanliness, the room and the bathroom aren't very clean at all, the bathroom also has a weird smell. The shower head is the slowest I ever used.
I can't remember the name of the gentleman working the front desk but he had long blonde hair and he was very very polite he washed are clothes and was always willing to help and give us information about Granada. The only thing was the ally way towards the hostel was dirty with dog and cat excrement some one should hose it clean.
nice hostel, supernice staff! thanks to everybody!
The staff was very friendly, the place is clean and very well located. Will recommend to my friends for sure!
Really great hostel nearby tourist attractions
I had a great time at Oasis Hostel in Granada. It's a nice building with a pretty rooftop terrace. Location is perfect. The activities organised by the hostel are very good too. The street art and caves tour organised by Mika is really good, as is the daytrip to the Sierra Nevada! The bar and other communal areas sometimes felt a bit 'dead'. The rooms are on the small side, and could use some upgrades (curtains, a shelf for private belongings,...)
Really nice hostel, staff are super friendly and very helpful. If you want to go to the Alhambra they will book it for you. There are many activities to do during the day and some activities at night and the terrace on the roof is beautiful to look up at stars. Super easy to meet people and make friends. If I were to come back I would stay here again!
Took time to find the hostel as it is hiding in the streets full of Arabic shops. Love their walking tour. Staff are helpful. Just be prepared that the room and bathroom are not that kind of modern and newly furnished.
This place is a very good value overall. It's in a pretty convenient location in the Albayzin, and doesn't really take too long to walk anywhere. The rooms didn't feel super clean though, and my biggest gripe is that there were no towels and you couldn't rent a towel from the front desk. Other than that, definitely recommend staying here for budget-conscious travelers.
Great location. Rooms were a decent size and clean. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Good location and the rooms and bathrooms are nice. However the staff is sleepy and non-helpful. I got 100 euros stolen from my suitcase while I was in the lobby. I had to call 3 times. Each time the response was reluctant and they never got back to me about looking at the security footage. When I finally wrote an email, they simply replied that I was located in an area not covered by the cameras. Considering that I was in the central lounge, I find this very surprising.
I walked in and took the first walking tour available and had a great time. The extra activities folks are a part of the hostel family, so you see them on most days. It is great to stay in a place that people remember your name and really show interest in seeing that you have a fun time. The terrace on the roof is great. I loved having a place to hang out in the open air and inside if the weather was bad.
Lots of group activities and tours. Really had the "hostel friends" experience. Lockers in rooms and huge towels to rent.
