Spent my New Years weekend in the most friendly and exciting community. The staff are always there for you for guidance and assistance. Central location, affordable price, clean environment, special events and free dinners all works to provide you with an unforgettable experience. So do not hesitate and book a bed! Trust me, you will enjoy Madrid.

I've been lucky to travel and stay in a number of hostels over the past few months, and I can say with some certainty that Sungate is a league ahead of anywhere I've previously encountered. Friendly staff (Polina & Mike made particular impressions, but it's unfair to single them out as everyone was fantastic), great rooms (single beds, not bunks;...

The first thing I was asked by Cris at the front desk when I arrived was "are you hungry?, we have some free dinner. I realized then that I was gonna feel at home at this hostel.

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.

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.

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.
