It's July it's hot and I made sure to filter for hostels with AC. This hostel appears and and I check in and boom. AC no working or something. The receptionist literally told me neighbors complain about the noise from AC. I couldn't sleep at all. Do not stay here in summer. Way tooooo hot. On the bright side wifi... More

Good one night stay. Pretty clean. Showers very average. Good location. Cheap. Security maybe not the best. Staff are really helpful. Would recommend if you are only in Madrid for a day or two. Ok breakfast included too.

We stayed there for 5 days, and the whole experience would've been okay: clean, the breakfast is okay, cheap. The reason why it was not okay, that our money got stolen from a locked cabinet in our locked room. It happened on consecutive days. So if you stay here, you better don't leave your money in the room even if... More

There were only two problems with it: noise from the street during the night, and water in the shower wasn't warm enough. Everything else is good. It's roomy and there is enough place for a lot of people to relax or work. The staff is very professional and helpful.

The hostel itself is a cool looking place, it's located in a good area, and sure it has some positives However someone stoled our money from our room, while we were sightseeing. We locked the money in the small cabinets and we also closed our room, so the thief had keys I think. So don't leave any money there, not... More

Excellent deal, I slept in a 10 room and it looks to me as if we were 3 or 4 because it's a huge room.. I depart at 5.20 with the shuttle bus service, it couldn't get any better.. The night reception lady was very nice and pretty awake and offer me a sandwich, i just took a glass of... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and the price is a good value. WiFi is included and it's located in a good area. The kitchen could use some work (like, more than a microwave), but over all a solid hostel experience.

The staff were great very helpful and friendly and the location was perfect. A few negative things; the kitchen was very limited (no hot plates, small amount of cutlery), the room I was in let every single voice in from out in the common room. I found myself being woken up at 5am by people talking outside My room loudly.... More
