Malaga Activities

At Oasis Hostel in Malaga, we believe that it's important that our guests feel not only what it's like to stay in a city but what its like to actually to live in it! Our World Famous staff and receptionist have put their years of knowledge together to creat these "Malaguenian" activities and events to give you a true Local experience.  We admit that we also like to have a "good time" and alot of our activities are also of a drinking nature.   Our Staff does alot of tours for free and a small tip in exchange for a smile would help them with chicken and beer money!  See Malaga or Die!

Free Malaga Walking Tour

Come with us on our Free Malaga walking tour starting from the Oasis Backpackers Hostel to all the main sites of Malaga – plus a few hidden places that not even Anotnio Banderas (malaga Native) knows about.  The tour is free but if you feel your guide did a job worthy  of a few tapas and some beer money please feel free to tip.
