This hostel is a great place to stay!! The location is very good, in the main center of Madrid! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Most important thing for me it's that the hostel is very clean! I highly recommend this place! :))))

Good staff! They were overbooked so they sent us to another hostel 2min from there. We could still use the facilities so it didn't matter for us to sleep somewhere else. The hostel is well located!

A good Hostel with a very nice atmosphere and efficient and friendly staff. Good terrace to relax and standard hostel breakfast. The "small bathroom" many people write about is ok and doesnt matter!

we only stayed there one night but it's ideally located in the city centre. the rooms and common areas are clean and spacious. the bathrooms perhaps not so big, but over all good value for money.

Great lhostel location but the hostel looked and felt depressing, with no atomosphere at all. The staff where okay but rude and unsympathetic when they ruined a few items clothing that I wash there

Very nice place but felt the atmosphere was a bit dry. We have no complaints in regard to cleanliness and facilities, and it was very close to everything. We also found that the best dinner places and clubs were around us which was very fortunate.

Absolutely great location, at the heart of Madrid at Puerta del Sol. The hostel is very small so you won't find many peoplo to hangout in the common rooms. Bedroom and bathroom were ok but for the price of the hostel, it's incridible.

Hostel is set at great location, in the heart of the city, surrounded with several restaurants and shops, and three-minute walk far away from city center, Peurta del Sol square. Hostel is clean, staff is lovely, bathrooms are nice and clean, breakfast is also decent. There is large balcony where you can enjoy in your breakfast or night drinks. The only drawback is that Wifi is working around reception but with week signal at the room. All in all, great place and I would definitely recommend it.

Narrow staircase up to second floor. Difficult door to open. Only none staff member speaks English. Bag check costs €5 until 11pm. Wifi was alright when it was working. Terrace was a let down and locked at 11pm. Kitchen also, and has almost no bench space, oven doesn't work. Wiring to equipment exposed. Beds were falling apart and upper bunk very close to lower. Showers didn't drain properly and had to hold shower head. Location is good, and easy to find. Staff didn't offer local tips.

The loudest place I know. Our window was directly at a street with some bars in it. It had no isolation. First night I fell asleep at 4 after 4 hours of lying awake. The Security is not ok, especially for women. Not everyone in the staff speaks English. And then they just won`t let you in. In the street there are a lot of drunk men bothering women. Imagine as a woman that you stand at the front door and the staff does not let you in while a drunk man is following you. Do you want that?

Good place, amazing location, nice people. Some staff I liked better than others. They have quiet hours from 11pm to 7am, which is both good and bad :) it's a great place and I'd definitely stay again. P.S. I was female and traveling alone, and there were others too, and we felt perfectly safe here.

Its location is really awesome for tourists. However this building does NOT have elevator. If you have heavy luggage, you can want to throw it away. Security depends on roomates' mind. I just believed my roomates.

Favourite hostel in Madrid. Really cool balcony, facilities are great, feels like you're at home. My only complaint...the fact that you have to pay to store luggage or use facilities on the day of check-out is ridiculous!

The hostel has a very good location, in the centrer of madrid, the bathroom is very small, but the services are good, the wifi, breakfast and the common areas.

The roof terrace is nice. The room itself wasn't good though. The beds are not comfortable, there's no lock on the TINY bathroom and the glass on the bathroom door is transparent. The lock on the door to the room didn't work. You can get much better places to stay in Madrid.

No security in the room, no lockers means u have to carry on all your vulnerables all day long, eg iPad,laptops, iPod, chargers and that makes your touring around city difficult. In order to reach the upper bunk bed u had to step on a chair(!), no physical light in the room and as for the " bathroom" u really can name it bathroom ...at least there was hot water.

We regret that your stay was not to your liking, in spite of being in a superior room to your reservation, as to the actual locker room that did not have lockers but the lodge has excluisvamente for that room service kept belongings, such information this in an informative poster room as the litter habras I guess not having seen a ladder to climb on one side and the bathroom is a small but complete bathroom, ofall forms take note of your opinions thank you very much
