Not that good. I've paid for a PRIVATE ROOM with bathroom but I got a private room without bathroom. The bathroom was shared by 4 others rooms. Also, they have not cleaned my room (I've been there for 3 nights). If you are looking for parties and beers and do not care with the hotel itself, this is the right... More

This is not a place to sleep its a place to party -my fault. The beds are foam and very uncomfortable , staff are unfriendly, showers and bathrooms filthy. The couches smell like the new york subway. The noise in and out of the room are obnoxious the walls, made of cardboard. But, hey if your traveling to kick it... More

This hostel has everything you need: wifi, clean accommodation, gorgeous courtyard, a bar, a karaoke bar, clean toilets and showers, super friendly staff, fun and exciting tours and PERFECT LOCATION. I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend this hostel for solo travelers as it´s quite communal (walking tours, tapas tours, pub crawls) and for those traveling in a group... More

Like every hostel, this hostel has it's flaws. But where it lacks in amenities it makes up for in character. The building is a renovated palace with a gorgeous -- yet very hot -- common room with indoor fountain. There is a bar on the first floor and an underground "night club" in the cellar below the bar. The downstairs... More

Great hostel. Awesome activities!! Special shout out to the twins (Viviana and Erica), they were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the city. They also gave us great tourist tips. Only downside was the WiFi which was patchy and unreliable.

Cat's was a very fun place to stay in Madrid. They offer so much from cooking/dancing/and Spanish classes, to pub crawls, to guided walking tours (the guide vivianna was SO knowledgeable and friendly), and it all comes with a breakfast included. I wasn't huge into the Madrid party scene and it still had so much to offer.

Hostel was clean and had a great atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful. Really nice lounge areas. Cool bar inside hostel (cheap beer and good happy hour prices). Cons- internet never worked. Keys to rooms are tricky.

Convenvenient location, helpful staff, enjoyed the free Salsa lesson with Monique. Went to an awesome salsa dance bar not far from the hostel and had an great time. Breakfast was good. Sharing a 16 bed dorm was ok, people coming and going alot which could make sleeping difficult but not a problem for me as I was out for most... More

I was pleasantly surprised about our stay at cats hostel. There were electronic and secure lockers and multiple plug sockets by each bed. Very sociable for backpackers and multiple activities were organised and available. Bedding very clean as were the toilets/showers. Only disappointment was breakfast and lack of it! Overall highly recommend staying here as we had a brilliant time... More

There is many people from around the world so you get to meet people with different cultures and backgorunds. Of course you have to stay in a bedroom with people you do not know, but if you are open-minded you will enjoy... More

ust outside the Puerta del Sol, the center point of Madrid, you can easily and quickly make it to the city’s most famous sites, like the lively Santa Ana plaza, world-famous Prado museum, and refreshing Retiro Park. But don’t worry – we make it easy to fit in that siesta in our Andalucían style common area, beautiful evidence that Cat’s was at one time a 17th century Spanish palace.As the sun goes down, the madrileños come out! When you start your night at Cat’s Cave Bar, it is sure to be a blast! Every night of the week we will take you on the best pub crawls, where you will meet your fellow travelers and truly experience the Madrid lifestyle. During the week we also offer you tapas and shopping tours, and free Flamenco and Salsa dance classes. And of course we’ve got the basics. Our newly renovated rooms range from 4 to 14 beds, each with clean sheets and secure lockers for each guest. Breakfast is included in the price and you can choose from a variety of cereals and pastries every morning. Free wifi is available in the common areas and there are also available computers for guest use. And on departure day, we have secure luggage storage where bags can be left while you get your last tastes of the city! ... more   less
