If you are looking for a place that is not too crowded yet gives you just the right amount of everything during your stay in a hostel, Mad Hostel is the place you'd want to consider. Comfortable, small cozy room, and a rooftop bar! Easy walking access to the center of Madrid, including Plaza Mayor and Mercado de San Miguel.

Comfortable, small cozy rooms...rooftop bar, lots of events hosted by the hostel...Breakfast, nice workers, close to everything...Loved it! I booked an 8 bedroom room but they put me in a 6 bedroom, so that was nice! I guess because it wasn't too busy.

A bargain hostel centrally located and with some of the best facilities I've seen yet. So much space in the common area and a chill sofa lounge area in the courtyard. Rooftop bar, which makes up for the no outside bought alcohol policy. Strong wifi, good free breakfast. No hidden extra costs. Showers could be better but fine overall. The... More

I´ve traveled to this hostel and I only have good things to say. Excelent location, you can go by foot to basically anywhere and it´s a 15m walk. wc´s always clean. Lot of activities to do. Go on the tour with the twins. It´s a must!

I had a really nice experience with Mad Hostel for spending an entertaining weekend with friends in central Madrid. And our friend Marco contributed a lot to the fun, I am really grateful for his help in organization. The only chance for improvement in the hostel concerns the ventilation of the rooms.

When I booked online, I saw that there was the possibility to book a 4-person room for only 3 people, paying a higher price for each one. Since we found that option really interesting, we made up our minds and chose that one. Once in Madrid, we arrived at the hostel at 11:00 am. We went straight to reception, and... More

It is difficult to put into words just how much I enjoyed staying at Mad Hostel! My friend and I stayed in a 2 bed private room which was a good size. The beds were relatively comfy and bathroom was clean (and cleaned every day)Only annoying thing was that the showers only run for about 30 seconds/1 minute so you... More

A really nice week with the mad hostel, with their excellent view on the rooftop's terrace ! Good rooms, good atmosphere, and really nice staff (thank you Marco and Matt for this time in Madrid, and the Hector's show in cat's bar) I will come back, and you have to go there!
