Madrid Motion Hostel

Reviewed August 19, 2013

This hostel is really nice they have a good breakfast, a bar the people at reception are really helpfull, but the best are the tours (free tour, tapas, flamenco and the pub crawl) they offer to their guest, I went to all of them and are the best way to meet other travellers if you are travelling alone.
I really reccommend it if you are going to Madrid

Room Tip: If you go to this hostel you have to try the tours!

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the hostel. It's very walkable to the metro stations, and the main plaza. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. The hostel staff is very friendly and helpful and they would gladly give us suggestions on places to eat and shop. The free breakfasts were served cafeteria style. In the evenings, the breakfast area is turned into a bar with reasonably priced drinks. The only negative is that there is noise from passing pedestrians, and delivery trucks even in the middle of the night so be sure to bring your ear plugs or white noise apps!

the hostel is located in the centre of town, a few minutes from one of the main plaza and the Main Street (gran via). the room was small as expected of a typical hostel but it was clean. the doors to your room were terrible, it took forever to lock and unlock them. breakfast is included but it's the same everyday and after 6 days we got quite bored of it. the front desk is open 24hours, some of the staff are very nice and helpful but one of them was rude and not particularly friendly. however, we did not get the room we booked for, though they gave us one night free for the trouble, we had to check out and in again two times during our 6 day stay. one time the receptionist even gave us a key to a room where someone was still staying at, which is extremely unsafe and rude for the people of that room, we return the keys immediately and he did apologise but it was a bad impression in terms of safety at the hostel.

I spent 3 nights there. Hostel is perfectly located! Less then 5min walking from Puerta del Sol and Gran Via & Callao subway stations. Rooms and ensuited bath are clean. Beds are comfortable. In room lockers are enough to store mid-size backpack. I didn't see any common bath, so consider taking a smaller room to avoid waiting in line for a ensuited bath ;)
Breakfast is simple: cereals, toasts, jam, fruits, tea/coffee, ... but nothing is limited ;)
Watch out - you won't prepare breakfast on your own, as far there is no kitchen :(
The reception stuff speaks English and is nice and helpful :)
Good value for money.

It is well located. You can get off at “Callao”. It is a Metro Station - line 3 or 5. I stayed in a shared room ensuite. The hostel doesn’t have bathrooms outside the bedroom. It is not good because when the bathroom is busy you don’t have the other. The reception staff was very helpful. They helped me with my bus reservation. I was there in April, 2013.

Loved this place.
Location is awesome just about a minutes walk from the main street. Reception staff is very helpful and i always felt comfortable to ask a ton of questions. Bar below the reception is small but really awesome! Its fairly cheap too, i paid about 2 euros for a big glass of beer!

Rooms are a little small but clean. Washroom is clean and big.

Definitely worth the 16 euros i paid a night! Would recommend this place to others.

Good location. Rooms very basic and clean. Miserable staff and not massively helpful. Broken locker and front door took ages to unlock and lock. Breakfast was adequate but limited choice. Toast and two types of cereal.
Okay value for money.
