This was the first hostel and city of our trip, so didn't know what to expect. However, it was really great. Rooms were decent, fairly clean and a decent size for the money you paid. The kitchen and shared living area/ common room was really good and enough room for pre drinks before a night out. The organised activities were... More

I loved this hostel, I've stayed in several in Madrid over the years and this was by far the best. I admit that it partly depends on the people staying there but in general there are a lot of activities so if you are travelling alone you will meet other people. Also people seemed to respect the no lights on... More

Excellent location, great (and very friendly) staff, very good atmosphere! Cheap food (paella) and drinks!. Clean and nice bathrooms. The only negative point : It's written on their website that all dorms have airco, but ours (12 bedrooms dorm) had only one fan! It was a bit too hot!

Loved it here! Stayed 4 nights in a 10 share dorm and had the best time in MAdrid. THe staff were so friendly, the paella was delicious and cheap! Clean too. The flamenco down the street was overpriced, but do the free walking tour!! Thanks!

I enjoyed the hostel, mainly staff, everybody is too kind. I liked the bed and my room (except for one girl that was too annoying asking to turn off the air conditioner, but... haha. The only thing I thought a bit weird is that on my room had three shower bath but no toilet, but it's ok.

I was here for one weekend and the location was awesome. You could walk to every main attraction and those that were a bit further away, you could grab a metro. Rooms were ok. The evening activities were great, though the pub crawl is maybe a bit too expensive for what you get. But then again, that really is an... More

This hostel was decent, but far overpriced from what we received in my perspective. The rooms were an average level of cleanliness as were the bathrooms, the staff was helpful, but there's no breakfast which stinks. However there were a lot of young travelers to meet when we stayed. The bar crawl was not worth it at all.

If you want to meet fellow like-minded travelers in a chill environment, hands-down Way is the place to be. They organize fun activities including the walking tour (with Pablo!), tapas dinner at El Tigre, and pub crawl. Pub crawl might not be the best value for the money in terms of quality of drinks but both times I was in... More

This hostel is within walking distance from many touristic places and it has an awesome staff, always ready to help! They have big rooms, but small bathrooms :/ The room I stayed was a little too noisy, but nothing that could prevent me from sleeping.
