Excellent hostel, we really enjoyed our staff! The staff were super friendly and helped us with directions/ shuttle bus/ bike tours etc- really great! The rooms were always clean and the electronic safes in the room made it feel very safe! Free breakfast in the morning and free wifi were also a big advantage! Finally the location was absolutely perfect!... More

This was my first stop in a 3 months trip in Europe and it was a very good way to start. The place is very cheerful and it's fun to be there. The location is great for visiting the city center and next to the Huertas square, that is full of pubs, tapas bars and restaurants (not for a budget... More

We stayed in madrid for 3 nights at this hostel and was very pleased with our stay. The building itself was beautiful and very welcoming. We were in a 12 bed dorm which was very clean and all had our own locker which was a great security benefit. For 12 people with multiple devices our room only had one plug... More

The hostel is beautiful, with an Alhambra Atrio Style which is the icing on the cake. Location cannot be better if you are looking for an inexpensive place close to the centre, Lavapies, Sol, Train Station... They play some music in the bar and was full of people. I only did not like the Bfast, busy a and only lates... More

The hostel was pretty basic, good location to everything, we never had to take the metro even to the train station. There's no kitchen but there is 1 euro beers in the vending machine so that's a plus. There's a fun bar with lots of people to meet so it's a really fun and welcoming vibe. Bathrooms are not the...

I stayed 3 nights in Madrid. Actually I had booked another hostel in the same area. It was so dull and boring. I discovered that everybody is going to the cat's hostel's bar at night to have some fun. After spending one night in that boring hostel, I cancelled the rest of my booking and move to cat's. I could... More

I stayed in many Madrid hostels and can tell you this is one of the best. Location is perfect ! There is a bar downstairs where you can meet people and discover new friends. Rooms are nice, specially if you are travelling with many other people. This is not the most peaceful place on earth but Madrid is aq party... More
