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.

There are refugees in this hostel yes. The hostel says this is because of some kind of ethical behaviour but really it's for the money. The refugees here are all friendly and good people. A lot of the white travellers were clearly racist about them and applying steriotypes so dont place too much reliance on their reviews. The location of the hostel is terrible for most. This is why the hostel is so cheap. Youre a dumb person if you book the hotel knowing this then complain about it later.
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.
