The hostel is located far far from the city centre, you have to get a bus and metro to get to the city centre so these are extra money you have to spend. More, the district is so dirty! Plenty of rubbish in the street as if nobody cleaned it for ages. I think it is near the landfill. Furthermore, we were there in July and in the room without air-conditining (even without a fan) the heat was unbearable (about 32 degrees at night).
Really great, I don't understand the bad reviews. Nice family atmosphere, lots of friendly people and kids! Hot showers, bathrooms, comfortable beds. Worst part was the lack of air-con, but I might just not have been able to find it! :-) Lovely staff and nice though basic stay, which is all I needed.
Far far away Due to pride for madrid event, all accomodation are fully booked No air- conditioning or fan during night Terrible stay For this price, I can't complain
lockers were not big enough to fit my bag. very very hard to get to and not central at all. the area thr hostel was in seemed very sketchy and unsafe to walk as a female without being heckled by strangers. staff were helpful though when i had any questions about getting places as you had to catch trains and buses usually for over an hour. there is no air conditioning in the rooms so it was too hot to sleep, like unbearably hot.
Hotel is miles from the city centre and a 20 minute walk to closest station through a neighbourhood that felt unsafe. Staff friendly and helpful. Guests very undesirable crowd. Cheap for a reason.

It is a nice Hostel if you want to save money, but it is to far from the city center if you are going to spend some days in the city i would recomend spending a little bit more on a closer place.
Very far from everything... Including Metro. And there were a lot of sketchy people who were staying there. Clean rooms tho.
We had a very pleasant stay at the Welcome Hostel. The concierge was very nice to us and would help us in everything we needed. The place was very clean and upto standards. Easy check-in and check-out process, the cocierge even called a shuttle service on short notice to pick us up and drive us to the airport on the next morning. The shuttle was budget friendly compared to taxi fares on madrid. All in all we were very satisfied with the Welcome Hostel and the staff. Thank you for everything.

I mean, if you want to stay at a refugee camp, with illegals, crackheads, and prostitutes, this is the place to be!
Feeled like a old hospital in the middle of nowhere. Lots of, lets call them refugees, and the hallways were smelly. the price was okay but the location definetly killed it. 20 minute walk froma trainstation way out of city
The hostel seems to be more a refugee than a hostel. For us there was too many scary face that we were not prepared to. The hostel has 24hr recepcion, security is ok and nothing happened but we still did not feel safe. The atmosphere is not good (probably because of the guests) although rooms were clean and tidy, not even too small. Common bathroom was clean but toilets are without doors! Staff was friendly with good English. We picked it because it was cheap in Madrid and close to the Airport.
