“Modern, clean, friendly, party”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

PLUS: Very clean and modern hostel, with friendly and helpful staff. Located close to the city center and party places - everything walking distance. Highly recommend the night-program / pub-crawls with the hostel's social coordinator German. Hostel also offers WiFi or computers to use free of charge. Lockers in the room (1-EUR coin deposit).
MINUS: Breakfast is quite poor. Bathroom floor when wet is slippery.
TIP: As in any hostel in the world or any place with more people in the room, it is good idea to bring earplugs.

The hostel is pretty clean, but looks a little bit more like a hospital than hospitable. Receptionist (Virginia, in particular) was very nice about giving information. Pub crawls are offered every night, which I recommend. It's a great chance to meet people from other hostels and discover nightlife of Puerta del Sol. The showers will leak out into the bathroom floor if you're not careful about how you splash the water, but the bathrooms, showers, and bedroom are all clean. Lockers available in the rooms, which are good for storing your items. I would recommend this hostel, but it wouldn't be my first choice in Madrid.

I spent two nights in Madrid and booked this hostel for its location. It was easy to find and within walking distance of some small bars that also served cheap food so that was all good.
Also the Puerta Del Sol and its shops were within walking distance.

The hostel was too big for me but I had some people to see in town and didn't spend much time at the hostel. The dorm was nice though with its black-ish bathroom, it was quite clean as well. Quite noisy at night though...

The only big downside to my stay there was that the dorm was way too warm - june and about 35°C daytime. So I asked at reception where was the aircon in the dorm as advertised on their website and the woman told me the temperature wasn't high enough yet for the hostel to be allowed to turn the aircon on... ok... So barely any sleep the first night, then on the second night we finally got the aircon but to me it was more like a fan... not very effective:(

The breakfast was included but I thought it was quite poor... 2 slices of toasted bread, some jam and "fake" orange juice.

For the rest it was ok though, staff was nice and let me use their luggage room for free after checking out, clean place, enough computers, ... Just a really big hostel full with people everywhere day and night:)

This hostel has a very modern feel (so perhaps not the best option for those who prefer a hostel with lots of character!). The room was good, with 4 beds and its own bathroom which was spacious and clean. We were disappointed to find that the air conditioning only seemed to work intermittently, resulting in the room being too hot to sleep in. We told reception but they didn't seem too concerned, although were polite. We were dismayed to be receive misinformation from a member of reception staff on departure, which resulted in us going to the wrong train station in Madrid and missing our train. Aside from these issues, the hostel was fairly good, in a nice location and reasonably priced.

Very good hostel with clean, simple rooms, air conditioning, clean washrooms, an elevator, a nice lounge, very nice personnel and only for 20 euros! The included breakfast is not so good but then again it is for free. I would denitively recomend it.

This is a very modern hostel, immaculately clean and equipped, facilities wise it has just about everything you could ask for in a hostel. Free WiFi was great, although a bit patchy in the room.

The location is great, no more then 20 minutes walk from anywhere in the old city centre (where there are tons of nice bars and restaurants) and is well serviced by the Metro.

It's cost comes in at the upper end of what you'd expect for a youth hostel, but it is probably worth it. What would make it definitely worth it would be a bit better service. The staff were pleasant enough but not enormously helpful, When we asked for a local restaurant that served steaks we were given completely naff directions up some back alleys where there were no restaurants. Breakfast was very poor, (even by hostel standards!), bad coffee, no tea, corn flakes (but no bowels!) and slightly stale tasting bread that needed to be toasted to be nice. Positive was the walking tour organised through the hostel which was great.

Overall, I would recommend this hostel, the most important things were got right, but for the cost the service could be a little bit better!
