This is a great place to stay. The highlight of my hostel experience was Zuri, who was my receptionist. She was super helpful and great! It's in a great location and all of the staff were helpful. I would definitely stay here if you are...More
This was my first travel to Madrid and I enjoyed this place a lot. The place was at a walking distance from Atocha station. The staff was highly cooperative and welcoming. I was unable to operate their electronic locks and the receptionist girl with blue...More

Hello, please could you contact us directly to clarify your review. As our receptionist explained to you and your partner, there was a group that arrived that night. She apologised with you both about the noise that they made. Our night receptionist spoke with the...More
Great staff, great location and the bar is open 24/7. 15 min walk to the train station and Grande villa. Several metro stations are within a 5 min walk. Wi-fi is spotty in the rooms but that's minor. The sister hostel CATs down the street...More

Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighborhood.
