Honestly the worst hostel I have ever visited in the whole world. In comparison a cheap accomodation in the middle of Cambodia looks like Hilton. I still wonder about the chinese lady who was constantly walking around along the corridors wearing plastic bags instead of shoes. We booked a twin we got a single bed, breakfast was like shopping in... More

Great hostel that I've returned to vey time I've visited Madrid as a tourist. Fantastic location in between Puerta del Sol & Gran Via. The rooms are value for money and there are lockers for you most valuable stuff. Although the rooms have AC, they can still be really warm in winter. The staff are lovely, very helpful in giving...

Loved the loxation as most of the main attractions (museo del prado, puerta del Sol, Plaza mayor, Retiro Park, Royal palace) are within a 15min walking distance, with multiple metro stations and a major bus loop near the Banco de Espana close by. The direct express bus to the airport is within a walking distance on passeo del prado. The... More

I stayed here for over a week. Good value for your money. Fantastic location within walking distance to major attractions in Madrid. The staff are friendly and helpful although they seem to be in a frantic. The breakfast is good, what you would expect from a hostel (coffee,tea,toast,fruit), the WIFI is only available in the common area/reception area, they have... More

We had stayed at Madrid motion hostels in October 2013 in a private room with ensuite bathroom. The location is awesome i.e. at the central of madrid near the posh Gran via street with abundant shopping and restaurants. The staff was also friendly and was always ready to help whenever we had any queries, especially Ismail, who had a very... More

It was clean and the bathroom was very nice...the staff was incredibly helpful... we asked to switch rooms the second day due to an unpleasant guess, and they were more than accommodating! Thank you so much! the... More

I led a trip of 17 people (3 adults and 14 children) to Madrid on a football tour. We decided to stay at the Madrid Motion Hostel. Value for money, this hotel was great. The rooms were clean and quiet and the hotel is located very close to the subway/metro. Also, the staff were very helpful and aided us with... More

I enjoyed my stay at The Motion Hostel. You have a choice of semi private rooms 3 beds or budget 6 beds , at a cheap rate, fourteen euro I think it was. The only problem was the insufficient seating and tables at the breakfast room. The fruit I liked the rest too sugary for me. The Hostel is very... More

Very good location, the center of Madrid. Many metro stations near. Hostel is big. I was in private room for two with a privat bathroom. The room was ok, but a bit cold. Hostel has also a bar, but no kitchen. Stuff is ok.

Hostels are good for cheap lodging and to meet people. This one is in a great location and has a friendly, efficient staff. I was particularly impressed with Ishmael in reception. He was exceptionally concerned and helpful when he found out I had been sick. He was also very helpful recommending places to visit and locating places on the map... More
