I stayed there for three days in my 'solo' trip around Europe. I booked a 4 people dorm with private bathroom and everthing was perfect, the bed was so comfy, the bathroom and the room were clean but the best of all is the breakfast, included in the price, one of the best i've ever had in a hostel with...

Travelling solo to go watch Atletico Madrid and eat good food, this place is perfect for a day or two quick stay. Very central with friendly staff, cleam/modern decor and a great sunny roof terrace bar.

We didn't actually stay here but heard about it from the naked madrid blog so thought it was worth a look. Having spent our Saturday morning wandering around the city we headed to the roof terrace to get out of the sun for a little bit. The staff where very helpful and managed to accommodate our large party. The food... More

I had been in the Hat last weekend. I had already been there before but solely having beers with friends -so I already knew how amazing is the place-. However, I need to share my “new” experience at the hat. This time my marvelous time there was even beyond... I not only had fun in an impressive and nice place,... More

Really enjoyed my stay here! Super clean and neat and I loved the decor! More like a hotel than a hostel but more social than a hotel! A bit noisy in the mornings... Heard other groups getting up and playing loud music at 730 AM even though everyone in my room was trying to sleep still. And the rooftop terrace... More

It was so close to everything, the breakfast was great, the beds were comfy, and the roof top bar was top notch. It doesn't open until 6 Pm but if you need to work or chill somewhere, the lounge and downstairs dining area are good alternatives. And the staff is incredibly helpful

I stayed here as a solo traveller for a long weekend in May 2015. I selected this hostel as a place to meet people and experience solo travelling for the first time. The location is fantastic - a minute from Plaza Mayor and 5 from Puerta del Sol; both areas home to restaurants/bars and pretty impressive buildings. Nearby is also... More

Great location, right in the center of Madrid. You won't need to take the metro. Great place to meet people in the lounge areas, bar, etc. Nice roof top view, worth seeing. The structure is very simple. Don't expect anything fancy like Generator hostels. But it is clean for a hostel. Room 1 is in the first floor, right near... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
