They advertise themselves as a party hostel, which we thought would be fun, but ended up ruining our stay. There is a club on the roof that they claim is there own but in fact its seperatly owned and you cant go up there unless you buy a drink. The club blasts music until around 4am so we couldnt sleep and we were drinking as well. Overall couldnt of had a more unpleasent time and had no sleep. Partying elsewear would be alot more fun in our opinions.

Good hostel. Quiet at night. Close in to the shops and cafes. Very clean, well run operation.


Second time staying here. Good location, friendly staff, good wifi. Nice areas to socialize with other travelers.


It's quiet because it's in a backstreet of an old town with no through traffic, which is magical because you round the corner and the whole world is there. Loved the huge drawers under the bed that could fit all the luggage so it doesn't clutter the room, even though the rooms are very spacious. Plus, there's a wardrobe AND a fridge in each room, wow. Excellent wifi signal, too. Really really clean, for such a large hostel, props! The staff are really nice. Excellent hostel


The hostel was nice even if not so quiet. They have a lot of activities, joined the pub crawl that was a lot of fun, the walking tour with Andrea was also very good, probably the top 3 I've ever done! Good work :) I highly reccommend you to stay in Oasis Malaga!


Great place with charming rooftop and courtyards. It was very easy tonmake friends and made it worth my stay.

we had several issues with our stay...upon arrival we were greeted with a negative attitude...also, a woman who was hanging out in the hostel lounge stole our key card and then lied to cover it up...this was quite concerning


Liked this hostel while we were there during Semana Santa. Great breakfast clean room with lots of windows we could open. Off on a side street but obviously loud during Semana Santa. Too many locals on the rooftop bar didn't feel I could really hang up there and enjoy it as a customer staying in the hostel. Otherwise good hostel, close to beach so you can walk


We had a fantastic stay, hostel had a great atmosphere, nice place to meet other travellers to hang out or to go party with. In general friendly staff, but we had to change rooms each 4 nights, which was quite annoying, due to a fully booked hostel and the staff did not seem to care much.


Great place to meet people. I was very happy with culture (laid back and friendly) and everything else was effortless. Good computers, free coffee and tea, nice sitting areas and the bathroom was clean and spacious.


The staff was very friendly and helpful. The enviorenment was very nice and you have a lot of things to do inside de hostel, and you can meet a lot of people from everywhere. The only problem is you must waiting until 13:30h. to do the check-in.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comments. Check in time limited to 13:30 is the way we have to control that rooms get cleaned better. We normally do exceptions and are able to start with check ins earlier. Arriving on Sunday doesn´t help, as is the day with more people checking out, most of them late after a long party night. Greetings from Malaga.


Had a great stay in Malaga! This hostel was one of the best that I've visited! Nice people, nice atmosphere! Awesome rooftop bar!
