As for the rooms - amazing, could use more power sockets though! The hostel has great vibes, but all the partying in which a lot of the boys and girls were drunk, loud and horny amazed me for just an ordinary Thursday in the first week of February, is it always like this?? It seemed to be always full and crowded there, and all the music, the Tarzan-like yelling and the TV cranked at the loudest volume setting was just a bit too much for me to bear. Thanks for returning me my lost media player!
This hostel is well locstes, very clean and the staff is friendly. Room little cold... No heaters...
This hostel is great. I've stayed here twice now. The first time was during tourist season with a group of friends and it was a really great party hostel. The staff were all super friendly and the pub crawl was definitely worth it. This last time I went was off season and there were only 2 other people with me in a room of ten. It was clean and relatively quiet compared to the last time I stayed. It's relatively close to the train and bus stations and centrally located with the touristy sites.

The girl checking me in was very kind. When I went back to the reception desk, there was a guy there who was a bit rude. Don't know what his problem was. The hostel itself was very clean and comfortable. Not much to complain about. Great location, right in the heart of the city. Good price.
The position is very good. The hostel is not bad, even if there is not even a chair where to put stuff. The problem is the quantity of drunken guiris doing don't know what all night long in the corridors, until 6am when some girls started fighting outside the room.
Very cool hostel, definitely not the place to go if you want to sleep all night! Party goes till 5am and I've met loads of people there. The bunk beds are really good as well and the room was spacious with a huge bathroom.
the oasis hostel will suck you in and you will never be able to leave
Located in center of Malaga. hard to find. They do family style dinners, breakfast costs Euros for eggs, bacon. Kitchen was well furnished with tea, pots, olive oil, salt. Plugs were semi hard to come by. Bathrooms were clean, free computers to get research in. Good social atmosphere for solo travelers. Staff is kind of aloof at front desk but they still care about making sure you have a great time. Walking tour was a joke and needs serious improvement. Nightlife is very awesome and prices are:)
This is a great hostel. I stayed 1 night in a four bed dorm, it was clean with big lockers. The staff where very helpful. i did the Tapas tour from the hostel with Lara, it was great, we went to 4-5 bars and it was €12. In the last bar extra drinks and tapas where €1 each. i was a solo traveler, this hostel was good fun and really easy to meet people. I was up early before breakfast, 15 min walk to metro to Malaga Airport, €1.70. good security in the hostel and good value restaurants close by.
Showers are hot with good water pressure. The staff is fantastic. The place is cozy and very homey feeling. And the beach is only a ten minute walk. Wonderful breakfast. The night activities are rowdy and so much fun. They also offered work exchange - changing beds for a free night. Niiiiice.
Receptionist did not seem interested in checking me in when I arrived at 1pm as I was getting in the way of her lunch.

The staffs weren't very nice in fact some of them were quite rude when I asked a question. It doesn't seem like they clean rooms and bathrooms everyday. On my last day the bathroom was unbearably dirty. The wifi only works in the lounge. Other things like kitchen, atmosphere and facilities were fine. They do have a lounge bar upstairs which was very nice. I just wish there were nicer and cleaner.
Compared to the atmosphere in oasis Granada, there is no atmosphere here. They don't have their own bar. And the rooftopbar is way too fancy for a hostel.
Well located in the center of Malaga and astonishing roof-top bar. A small minus point would be that two dorms are located directly behind the kitchens, so it is a bit noisy in the morning in that rooms.
I had an awesome time here. Great staff. Great location.
enjoyed my stay, helpful staff & cool roof terrace bar
Hard to say it wasn't a good hostel, but not what you would expect in terms of vibes and party hostel. The rooftop bar is not owned by the hostel and open to the public, quite a posh bar too and expensive. They had green carpet and bouncers at the front door through reception for the bar. I think it would have been better stay if more people where checked in and more involved with the activities. Staff could have been more friendly and put more of an effort in (except laura).
Good hostel, not as good as the one in Granada though
Great hostel, though I spent only one night. The staff really helpful and friendly. The cleaning was good. Good location, near to the Town center and beach. Tapas's night. Really cheap, definitely value for money.
