Stayed in a 10 bed dorm, the beds were super comfy and there was loads of space for everyone. The secure drawers under the bed are big enough for a 'hand-luggage' sized suitcase, and there was even a wardrobe if you fancied hanging up your clothes. A full-size fridge in the room also made it easy to keep an eye on your food. I need had to wait for the bathroom, and didn't notice a lot of noise (but then prehaps I was the noisy one).
The free walking tour that leaves every morning was absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend it. I also enjoyed the Tapas tour, and the Friday night pub crawl.
The hostel is a place to party, the reception bar sells tequila shots for only 1euro. They will let you bring your own alcohol in to drink in the outdoor courtyard, but they do normally try to drag you out to the local bars around midnight to keep the noise down.
There is another bar on the rooftop but this isn't actually part of the hostel (despite having the same name) and was very expensive. It also meant there were random people (not staying at the hostel) walking through the hostel all the time, this made me slightly uneasy even though all the rooms seemed very secure.
The only bad point is that it was hard to find, it is in a very good central location but down a dodgy looking alleyway which if I hadnt asked someone for directions I would not have walked down when I was arriving at midnight.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the most "party" hostel in Malaga. We have a saying at Oasis Backpacker's Hostel in 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, cheap drinks, two bars, and endless activities keep travellers mingling all night long. In Malaga 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 center after one of our famous nights out, you will be welcomed into the family...Oasis Style! ... more less
