Reviewed 9 June 2012

It's so hot and humid in Granada that the pool alone makes this place worth it! Yes, it isn't huge, but it's big enough. Everyone goes in to chill so I found it to be a really social place where everyone chats to each other, and brings in a few beers in the evening. I generally found the hostel to be a really friendly place and made some good friends here. It's a very social place without being a total party hostel The courtyard chill-out area is really nice and pretty with lots of hammocks, comfy chairs etc. and there are lots of free computers to use. The dorms do have a lot of beds and it does get hot but they have fans so it's bearable. Big lockers to fit all your stuff in. Free 10min international phone call a day. No complaints about this place.

this is a typical backpackers with many facilities, nice atmosphere, beautiful building, internet, great people to meet, but............. i paid 14 dollars for the smallest room i ever been in and without shower, and it stayed warm, the room was not a good deal. for that price you can get a much better room. So do check out your room before you decide to stay.

On my first visit I stayed in a single room by the pool. The room was small but functional. With only one window and low ceiling it was quite hot but bearable with the fan. To get to the room one must walk on the tiles around the pool, and these can often be wet and slippery. Non-smokers may be irritated by second hand smoke wafting in from nearby pool users.

Several days later I returned and requested a different single room; this one much closer to reception in the old part of the building. High ceilings and thick walls ensured a quiet and cooler nights sleep, and this room was at least 50% larger than my first one.

The hostel has numerous areas in which to hang out, relax, and meet other travellers and I would recommend it for this reason above everything else. There was a great friendly atmosphere here that is too often absent in backpacker accommodation.

Room Tip: Ask to see several rooms before accepting one. Staff seem to just grab any old key in order to show...

My boyfriend and I ended up staying at Oasis for over a week as we did 5 days of Spanish school in Granada - we really enjoyed our stay.

Our private double room was basic but all we needed. If you want to get your room cleaned you just have to let reception know in the morning which was a nice touch.

The kitchen was reasonably big and well equipped - only thing I would have suggested was perhaps the addition of another fridge - the one they had got extremely full when there were a lot of people staying there!

The place is massive and in an old colonial house which has the typical large courtyard featured in the middle. There is a small pool which was great on the hot Granada afternoons and so many hammocks and comfy chairs to chill out on through out the day and night.

The place had a nice social vibe (without being a crazy party hostel) while we were there and we met some great people. The location was fairly central to everything and I'd also recommend there day trip to Laguna de Apoyo - very relaxing!

I read a lot of the other reviews and I looked at staying at Hostel Oasis as an adventure. I was pleasantly surprised! The hostel was clean, charming and had architecture characteristic of Granada. There was a large common area with two small courtyards-- one had chairs and trees and was surrounded by hammocks; the other was the pool that had a TV nearby and the restaurant tables. The pool was spotless and looks like it does in the pictures. The hammocks were comfortable and there were plenty of computers with high speed internet for everyone to use. The dorms were very clean (white sheets!) and there were plenty of bathrooms. I loved the 11pm quiet time rule-- they really mean it! After 11, the place sorta shuts down; it's dark and quiet and you can get a pretty good night's sleep (for being in a shared hostel dorm room). The staff was friendly, but not over the top (let's be real; this isn't the Four Seasons) and they sell beer, water and soda for good prices. If I was to give one piece of advice to them, it would be: get new pillows! The pillows were lumpy and sorta weird, but again: it's a hostel. Most backpackers either have their own travel pillow or don't mind wadding up their towel or their backpack for firmer head support. Oh, and another thing: big lockers! If you have a big backpack, you can probably jam the whole pack in there. What a plus!
