Madagascar's very first and only Hostel located in the heart of Antananarivo. Super cool and comfortable accommodation at an unbeatable price. We can hook you up, advise, and get you to all the best spots around Mada, the fastest and most stylish ways possible. At Madagascar Underground we offer 3 super epic dorms and one private room, with shared shower and toilet blocks, and one cool as private room with ensuite. We have other awesomeness around the place like a bar, Mexican restaurant, games room, library, cinema, gardens to chill and much more. We love surfing, cave diving, reef diving, trekking, kite surfing, and Madagascar's unreal fauna and flora. And although there aint too much of that in Tana, we know where it is everywhere else around the country! Our aim is to get you to these places, and other places you desire, hooking you up with other travellers with common interests to make your stay cheaper, more comfortable, and generally more enjoyable, and of course unforgettable. Even if your not staying with us, come have one of our tasty margaritas, and enjoy the coastal feel in the centre of Madagascar. We are located in the coolest suburb of Antananarivo, right in the centre of the city, next the old american embassy. Easy walking distance to all the best bars, restaurants and shops. Its a nice and quiet street with parking and no traffic...which means no pollution. Come and say G'day :D

This place was like being at home. It was my start point for my arrival and my last place before my departure. People there were really nice and helpful. I didn't have any plan and they helped me to prepare my two weeks off in Madagascar. They are also good singers there and you

It's a nice place, there's always other people, hanging in the cosy common space. Both private and dorm were good. The showers lack a bit of privacy but I heard there's a private one for women. Good breakfast, food good. Nice staff. Very expensive compared to the rest of the

"The bungalow is a tiny room inside the kitchen and unbelievably noisy"
"The private rooms are nice, but the view is better in the shared rooms!"
"there is no AC and only fans. The dorms can be cramped. If you are a female, opt for the female only dorm."
"Backpackers awesome"
"dorms are great!"
