Oasis Backpackers Hostels

From 15 EUR

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

We have an amazing location for a Malaga Hostel, right in the historic city centre, just meters away from the nightlife. We are in a beautiful building next to the Thyssen Museum and our dorms are modern and spacious. The hostel, by choice, is a party hostel. We believe that you should have a cheap bed, clean room and a drink in your hand. Always.

Our hostel is directly on Calle Larios, Malaga's biggest shopping zone where all major fashion houses, as well as Spanish boutique designers have their outlets.

FROM MALAGA BUS STATION PASEO LOS TILOS:

You have the choice. It is either a 2km walk through Malaga city center or a 2 min local train ride. Should you choose to get the train from the train station just right next to the bus terminal, get off at the Centro/ Alameda stop.

From here, walk up north next to the river on Pasillo de Santa Isabel for about 200m in the direction of IBIS Hotel. Once this is on the left side from you on the other side of the river, turn right into Puerta Nueva that leads into Calle Compania. Turn left when you come to the THYSSEN Museum into Calle de los Martires, then the first right is Calle San Telmo. We are at no. 14.

Should you decide to walk, walk to the right of Paseo los Tilos turning into Callejones del Perchel. At the roundabout take a right into Avenida de la Aurora crossing the river. Continue on the river bank on Pasillo de Santa Isabel heading for the IBIS Hotel. Once this is on the left side from you on the other side of the river, turn right into Puerta Nueva that leads into Calle Compania. Turn left when you come to the THYSSEN Museum into Calle de los Martires, than the first right is Calle San Telmo. We are at no. 14.

FROM MALAGA TRAIN STATION

The same as from the bus station, they are just next to each other and you can chose to walk, take the train or a taxi.

FROM MALAGA AIRPORT

Take the train (1.35 €, leaves every hour at 15 mins past and 45 mins past) from the airport and get off at the second to last stop, Centro/ Alameda.

Turn left when you come to the THYSSEN Museum into Calle de los Martires, than the first right is Calle San Telmo 14.

Reviews of Oasis Backpackers Hostels

I stayed at Oasis Malaga on the 22nd September and had a great time. I saw the review here about bed bugs, but can't say I had any problems at all. Sure there were mosquitos biting sometimes, but this is common in Spain and not something the Hostel can do anything about. This is a party hostel, so perhaps if you don't want to go out or are looking for a quiet stay alone then this is not the place for you, this can also mean that the bathrooms are sometimes a little dirty in the early mornings before the staff have a chance to get around to clean them. I loved this hostel and Malaga too and would stay again in a flash! Thanks Oasis!

i can´t understand why the hostel is on the side for "famoushostels"......the pictures look nice..but how old are they?!?! we didn´t feel welcome at all...the stuff is not really friendly!
and the worst..we had bed bugs...and if you read other reviews on other sides you will see that they now bed bugs really well...!!! so...i would never stay there again!

I've stayed here with a couple of friends, the hostel is great! The rooms and beds are big and clean, there's a huge space to lock your luggage under your bed and also a free luggage room when you're leaving. The breakfast is only 3€ and it's super tasty, the gourmet dinners are amazing and every night they have new activities! BBQ, drinking games.. We went on 3 consecutive pubcrawls: 10€ for 1 hour open bar then shots and entrances in bars and clubs is so cheap and too much fun! every night we discovered new places and the guides are really cool! The terrace bar is cheaper for hostel's client but apparently one of the most trendy in malaga, try the kiwi gintonic and you'll know why! The staff is really helpful and the walking tour was as promised not just piles of monuments. We'll definitely come back later on in the summer! Highly recommended!
