Great hostel with great staff. I shoud have stayed there for 6 days but decided to stay longer just because of the atmosphere. they have multiple terasses including one sundeck on the top of the roof!


There's a few issues with this hostel to be fair. The staff that check you in are unfriendly and do not promote the activities at the hostel or provide any information about the facilities. Someone stole my key card and I couldn't get 5 euro refund BEWARE. I got told off one morning because one guest was upset I made too much noise when I returned back drunk. Get over it, it's a hostel, stay at a hostel if you want quiet. Limited area to chill. Rooftop terrace not part of hostel CAUTION


Best Hostel I've stayed at so far! Staff make such a massive effort to make sure everyone's having a good time. The atmosphere is super laid back and friendly


Directions to the hostel were not very clear. Other than the the hostel was cheap. It had a nice public bar upstairs which was a tad expensive but worth it for a few drinks in the sun. They had a €3 breakfast option which was amazing. If you're looking for a hostel to have a good night's sleep DO NOT stay here. It is incredibly noisy but if that's what you're into you're to love it. Staff were friendly and the kitchens were perfect.


Laura was a fantastic host when it came to keeping everyone entertained – thankyou! It's not clear on the website that the terrace is actually separate from the hostel- I would have loved to have used it during the day to relax, but it was shut. The directions on the website are pretty vague. Please improve! Ensuite in each room is great if you're sharing with people you know, but in a dorm with 7 others, it's not very practical (& doesn't help when the others are messy!).


Good times !!!


Laura who runs the events and catering for this place makes the hostel - her team are the best


One of the receptionist Sophie was very nice, very friendly and helpful along with the Argentinan guy in reception.

It was a very nice hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. And there was always a good atmosphere to meet new people and have a drink together.

Great easy to find from bus stop, busy thriving Hostel, good value.


Fantastic staff and great environment. Great location to check out the area.


The environment at the hostel was fantastic and the staff were incredible. They set up events for guests around the area every evening and promoting bonding with others. Water was always cold.


Very nice hostel: the staff is really helpful and nice. The best hostel to party and go out. Even if you come alone, you won't be alone because the staff makes up a lot of activities !


Solid Wifi connection, breakfast is not free.


The staff on front desk were particularly helpful and accommodating!


A friendly and well located hostel. Not somewhere for a good nights sleep as noise goes on late and starts early but great for young travellers or those looking for a good night out. Lots of fun activities (all including alcohol) and friendly helpful staff. Charge 7€ for a washing machine though.


Nice facilities, great location. Bars are close by, beach not too far either. Didn´t have the best atmosphere but wasn´t too busy so hard to say what the cause was. Overall very nice hostel and would stay again.


bring earplugs and sleeping eye patch


A great place to stay especially if you're travelling alone. The staff are friendly and organise social activities most evenings. Even the 8 bedroom dorms were roomy and I felt I had some privacy. Bring ear plugs if you're having an early night as some nights it can be lively but that just adds to the good atmosphere. The fabulous rooftop bar was a welcome escape from the busy Malaga streets and the music was like a bar in Ibiza. Big thumbs up for Oasis Malaga.


Very loudly, very dirty.
