I wish I would have looked into this hostel befor I booked it! 2.5 hour walk out of the city center very not backpacker friendly and has no kitchen. Felt awkward the whole 2 day stay... But it is cheap!


it seems good for families, get ready for an hour and a half trek to city center. kinda sketchy neighborhood.


I did enjoy my stay here, it is a nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff, it is true that they welcome the refugees but they are also nice people. I felt secure in this place but I only moved after a couple days because I found a closer place. However there are many options for transportation, the bus is about five minutes away and it takes you to the center or to the train station. Thank you Hostal welcome!

It is ok if you want a cheap and quite acceptable hostel to stop in Madrid one night if you are in transit to another place. Otherwise is very far from the city center


This is being used to house refugees. It is way out in an industrial area and I would never have walked out after dark. This is not suitable for travellers to Madrid.

Even in an emergency situation I'm sure there is a better option. Looks and smells like a hospital. I think the security enclosure that the receptionist sits in speaks for the safety of the area. Any money saved on booking here will be spent on transportation (bus & metro). While every piece of my linen was stained and the walls filthy, the whole place still stunk of disinfectant. If you want wifi in your room be prepared to pay. The worst hostel environment I have ever experienced.


The facilities are very complete, what we didn't like was that the hostel is very far from the city (metro and then bus). The staff was very helpful and the hostel was very clean. Also didn't like that they charge for wifi in the room(free in the main hall). I would recommend it for someone that has a car or that is looking for somewhere cheap( the place is nice but remember to add the price of the transportation which is metro ticket plus bus ticket, unless you buy the full day ticket-8 euros)

Overall this was a great spot, I failed to read the directions an noticed its a little ways outside the center of town, but it's just a quick tram ride 2€ to the center..staff was very helpful with plenty of information on hand..great value!


This hostel is in the middle of nowhere and they didn't say anything about it being a family hostel online. I think they should tell you that families will be staying there and nothing is open at night.

This hostel is for a cheap bed. It is not a place for meeting people or sight seeing or partying. It is a cheap bed in an institution like environment. Full of families and a weird mixture of people including elderly people. It is clean and the beds were comfortable. However, it is literally so far out of the city that you can see the country side. It is not easy to find. It takes a long time on the metro from the city and then you have to catch a bus from the metro. You get what you pay for.


had an emergency and could.not arrive . I contacted them asap and they charged me the night


I liked it but it was really hard to find and then get to the metro from.


actually is a not so good place , is so far from the city centre you must take one bus and metro , if you go to madrid for 2-3 day dont go here. But the people who work in hostel is a really helpful person!


Lo único problema es el calor!!no hay aire ni ventilador es imposible dormir!!

The hostel is a bit far from the centre, and I would not recommend it if you don't have a car, but if you do, it's a ten minute drive and parking is only 6 euros per day.


Tuvimos coche y por eso fue genial porque hay parking. Great because we had a car and had parking. Not good if you don't have a car as it's a 20 minute walk to the nearest train station which and 10-15 minutes on the train from Madrid. And, although there was no problem for us, the site should mention that it's a centre for asylum seekers which has a different atmosphere from other hostales.


If you got a car, it's the perfect place to stay


Great hostel and great price, bit of a trek to get to


it's cheap! there was a big festival in town so all the reasonably priced (under 70 euro/night) hostels and hotels in Madrid were booked. So this was my only real option. It was close enough to public transport that it wasn't really a hassle - but it wasn't within walking distance anywhere. If you're looking for cheap, clean, decent location - great pick. If you want convenience, ease of access, fun, etc - look elsewhere...
