Hostelworld says

Oasis Backpackers' Hostel Malaga is in a great central location, less than 10 minutes' walk from Málaga Cathedral, Parque de Málaga, the Alcazaba and CAC Málaga. It's also only just 15 minutes' walk from the beach. This lively, clean hostel features free breakfast, under-bed lockers and lots of lounge areas for socialising, as well as a rooftop terrace with a bar. Hostelworld guests tell us it's ideal for parties and meeting fellow travellers.

Property Description

We have a saying at Oasis Backpacker's Hostel Malaga – if you can't meet anyone here, you can't meet anyone anywhere! Or maybe that was, ‘why do my socks smell like tequila?’ Either way, with cheap drinks, two bars and endless activities, we keep travellers mingling all night long.

We want everyone to join in the fun. Whether we're spending the day basking in the warm Andalusian sun at one of Malaga's many beaches (yes, even in the winter), sipping cocktails while looking out over the skyline on our rooftop bar or stumbling through the historic centre after one of our famous nights out, you will be welcomed into the family...Oasis style!

We could tell you about our amazing central location right in the historic city centre, just few meters away from the liveliest nightlife...or our beautiful building next to the Thyssen Museum...or our spacious and modern dorms and free Wi-Fi...or our futuristic coffee maker...but this is Oasis. That stuff is standard. Instead, we would like to let you know our philosophy:

Our hostel, by choice, is a party hostel. We believe that you should have a cheap bed, clean room and a drink in your hand. We believe that a hostel is a place for meeting other interesting travellers before sleeping with them (take that how you want).

We also know while we might not be the best place for getting a good night’s sleep we are definitely the best place for staying up in Malaga. Besides, you can sleep on the beach.

Everything we do, whether it's our free walking tours, Beer Olympics, Not-so-pub-crawl Pub Crawls or endless array of other activities, our aim is to give you the best damn time in Malaga. Our staff have all undergone numerous training regiments in cultural, social and musical revolutions.

Come stay with us in Malaga and we'll do our best to help you forget you ever did. View House Rules

Overview

Welcome to Oasis Backpackers' Hostel Malaga, a party hostel with so much fun stuff going on that sleep will be bottom of your list! We're a super-sociable bunch and we love to hang out in our bars, rooftop terrace and nightclub – drinks are always cheap! There are also games like beer Olympics to compete in and pub crawls to the city's coolest hangouts. In the morning, we'll fix you up with a free breakfast too (and then you can head to bed).

Location

We've got a brilliant location that's just a 19-minute walk to the beach and 11 minutes from Parque de Málaga – ideal for lazy days. We're also within walking distance of top sights too, like the medieval fortress of Alcazaba (7 minutes) and Málaga Cathedral (5 minutes). Flying into Malaga airport? Walk 12 minutes to Aeropuerto and take line C1 for 13 minutes to Málaga Centre Mall and we're a 12-minute stroll away. From Malaga-Maria Zambrano railway station, you can reach us on foot in 20 minutes or jump on bus C2 for 8 minutes to Alameda Principal (Sur) then walk for another 8 minutes to us.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed and female-only dorms are spacious and modern with bunk beds and under-bed storage for your stuff. Beds are covered in fresh sheets and you can hire a towel from us before hitting the shower in your en-suite. All rooms have air con as well to help you sleep on those hot nights.

Extras and activities

Get to know other travellers on our day trips to the beach, free walking tours of the city or even hiking in El Chorro – the nearby natural park. For dinner, join our tapas bar crawl or cook something up in one of our two kitchens. Want a day of calm? There are patios and lounge areas with free Wi-Fi and a games room for sessions of (international) foosball. We've also got storage lockers and an elevator to help with heavy backpacks.

    We were in Malaga for new year's, and ended up needing help finding a doctor on New Year's Eve because one person in our group was very sick. Mano was incredibly considerate, and we don't know what we would have done without his help setting up the doctor's visit and taking us there. He went above and beyond to check in on us. We also really enjoyed the NYE pub crawl, and were able to see a lot in Malaga because of the hostel's great location.

    I had a good time around New Years here. The hostel was surprisingly quiet for a hostel that claims to be a party hostel. Yet centrally located and lively enough to keep me entertained. I enjoyed the nightly chats with Pablo in the bar- errr, I mean reception area. Very nice to have a 11.30 am check out time too.

    Nice place with a great location. Spacious lockers and bathrooms in each shared room. The pub crawl is highly recommended as it is a great value and a great way to meet other travelers. That being said, I had very little interactions with other guests outside of the pub crawl... I was a solo traveler and found there to be very little atmosphere as most people seemed to keep to themselves-it might've been the night I was there. Skip paying for the measly breakfast and eat somewhere else.

    I was super disappointed staying here. While it’s location is perfect and facilities are super nice I didn’t really like the atmosphere. There was nobody ever around hanging out and there were a lot of old people not much of a young crowd. It gave me hotel vibes. Probably wouldn’t go back to be honest.

    I’ve stayed at over 30 hostels and this one is by far the worst, specifically for staff and noise. I had a simple request to use the phone to call my hotel for my last night in Malaga (I would be switching to a airport hotel). They don’t have an outgoing phone, however the suggestion was for me to go and buy a SIM card for one call. On top of that, the afternoon staff charged me 15 euro for a key card deposit, which I responded saying it was the same cost for the room. I in turn double paid.

Oasis Backpackers' Hostel Malaga says

I think what puts us ahead of the rest is our location, five minutes from the cathedral, the Picasso Museum and the Thyssen. We're also just 10 minutes from the beach and we've got one of the most popular bars in town up on our terrace. It's got a great atmosphere, plus we serve the best cocktails in town.
Personally, though, I think you can't leave Málaga without visiting El Pimpi. It\'s a bodegón around 300 years old and was originally part of the Palacio Bella Vista, which incorporates the present day Picasso Museum. The name comes from one of its past owners, El Pimpi, who used to sell supplies at the docks to the seafarers from the sugar cane export ships. For a while it was a convent before being converted into a night club, and was then given a gentler existence as a Bodegón, as it is today. You can taste all the different types of wine and enjoy their best tapas, or have a lovely plate of ham and cheese. You won't find that kind of atmosphere anywhere else.
Our hostel is suited for every kind of guests; we are always full of people of every age and taste. We also have a special room with ensuite bathroom prepared for persons with special needs, such as an elevator.
