One of the cleanest hostels I've been to. Amazing staff and always something to do at night! They also have free breakfast I think but we were never up early enough for that. Met some unforgettable friends and would definitely come here again. So close to the sol station and lots of food at the heart of Madrid.

The location is perfect for anyone that wants to explore the city, it couldn't be any more central! The rooms are clean and there never seemed to be a line for the shower.

Everything was super clean, staff (Esp. Christo and Angel) were happy to give out advice on pretty much anything and ensured we had the best stay in Madrid.

Absolutely incredible experience. The people who worked there were friendly and always quite helpful. The atmosphere was electric, inclusive, and very friendly. It was honestly the best part of my trip to Madrid and I'm so glad I stayed here.

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.
