Absolutely loved this hostel. Their staff was AMAZING! Jacob even called me by name, being that I know he meets hundreds of people each day. I absolutely loved that they prepare so many activities for people traveling solo like I did. As part of their mission, they hope to help people create connections and make friendships within three days, and... More

This is a good hostel. I have stayed here twice now within 2 weeks. The staff are friendly and speak a variety of languages. There are plenty of single toilet/shower rooms with lots of privacy. Each having 2 hand towels and always highly stocked with toilet paper. There is a medium sized kitchen with cheap dinners cooked every few nights.... More

The guy at the desk was awesome, met some great people in the common room. Common room was very nice, outlets, computers, and everything. The rooms were fine as well. There are lockers and everything. Would highly recommend it.

First time out of all the hostels I have stayed in where a member of staff ensured I let him carry my bag. The atmosphere was good. The hostel put on something each night.... More

It all came true in my 4 nights of staying there. You are free to join any activities they organize. They are just a great... More

This would be a decent hostel that is run by some hard working people but it is simply not secure. I had a very large amount of money stolen from a locked locker inside one of the dorm rooms, which are operated by pass key, but often carelessly left open. If staying here I would strongly advise not bringing a... More

We didn't do any research prior to going to Madrid on where to go, what to see, or what to eat. So we didn't know what to expect, but that the hostel is in a central location. The hostel has a "free" walking tour, which is great because they take your around the city and give you a history/cultural lesson.... More
