Let me preface this review by saying that I have stayed in a variety of hostels and have had varying experiences that have thankfully been mostly been positive. When booking hostels, I refer to HostelBookers and other such sites and am usually impressed with their recommendations. Somehow this poor excuse for a hostel is recommended there (or it was when...

Amazing location, no doubt. Cheap? yes, really cheap.If you are looking a place to sleep and take a shower this is it. Nothing else. Service was normal, they had a great guy but i don't remember his name now. This is an apartment they turn into a hostel, don't expect more than that. I stayed one night in one floor... More

As you may see online, or as staff members of the hostel may remind you, this is the CHEAPEST hostel in Madrid, from 10E per night. However, this does not include Breakfast, laundry facilities, access to the kitchen or its facilities, including drinking water from 00.00am. FOR THIS PRICE, you will also be rudely woken up every morning, regardless of... More

They never actually said that they have huge lockers in the rooms but they did say that they clean and close the hostel between 11 am and... More

I was in Madrid for 6 days and I stayed in this hostel. The staff was nice and the travellers were nice as well. The place is small by cozy. I like it. I don´t really know why so many people dislike it but I didn´t have a bad experience.
