Great deal for the money. The breakfast was basic but great. I liked the watch/key feature, it was pretty cool. Great location, not far from train station and minutes away from major places.
The location is very good, but for the same reason it could be noisy during the weekend.
Totally recommendable! :) Good atmosphere, also perfect if you travel alone (they organize Sangría evenings, Paella evenings, and they offer pub crawls, free walking tours, Salsa or Spanish courses...), staff is also really nice, helpful and well informed about everything :) What I didn't like is that they use plates and cutlery of plasic/paper for breakfast, which is not really eco-friendly, and also, it's in a party area, so that it's quite loud at night..
Staff is less than ideal. The woman working reception acted as if we were bothering her with questions at check-in and attempts to get towels. The next morning we were scolded by the cleaning man for not realizing that we weren't supposed to use the stairs as he mopped them exactly during breakfast time. And the morning after that, he entered our room around 10:30, saw all of us still in bed, and instead of leaving, came in and tried to chat with us as he did minor tasks that could have waited.
Awesome place to meet people as Something is always going On. Very cheap and offers everything you generally need from a low budget hostel. Would recommend.
Really good stay, definitely recommend to anyone. Few more bathrooms would be nice, but not a huge problem

Has yours, crawls and other activities to meet other people. Older building too. Breakfast is awful, bland cereal. Has computers though. Good atmosphere. Rooms are kind of small but sufficient.
It´s really well located, has a nice breakfast and free sangrias everynight during one hour. But the bathrooms aren´t so nice, there´s no enough space to put your things and not enough privacy, also the toilets are really small and there´s no toilet on the ground floor (and the bar is there). The security lock (kind of a watch) they give us sometimes doesn´t work that well (or is complicated to manage). It should cost less for what they offer.
Clean and good location. Pleasant staff. Rooms were good size. The showers were push button to make the water run but only lasted 45seconds so had to constantly push it over and over while showering. No wifi in the rooms, wifi the common area/kitchen downstairs which closed at 11pm. They have a largish courtyard next to the kitchen, the kitchen/common area was small. Not many kitchen utensils and only one small chopping knife. They use paper plates/bowls, plastic knifes/forks. Good for price.
My favorite hostel so far in my cross Europe trip. Located on calle huertas, near everything you will need and want to see in Madrid.
Location is good and there are hairdryers and a computer room, but Wifi is only available on the ground floor and there are mixed bathrooms on the 2nd floor. My two-bed bedroom was so small, I could hardly place my suitcase.
Nice hostel, very much in the city center, but not too big reception area.
It was kinda hot in there, but it was close to everything and they offered activities for people to do, which was cool.
The hostel key is great: easy to carry and safe for controlling hostel guests ins and outs. This hostel has GREAT location, close to Paseo Del Prado and downtown Madrid. Has many power socks, a lift for you to carry your luggage, is organized and clean. Many cool guests.What isn't good: the shower is terrible, works for 15 minutes, gets hot and cold all the time. Also, they are not very helpful if you need touristic information - people who work there just take care of check ins and check outs.
Decent hostel in a great location. Free breakfast and guest kitchen. Various lounge areas. Lockers for each bed. Wifi works in lounge areas. I had no issues with this hostel. It can be loud at night as it is in a party area, but it is not too bad so don't let this put you off.
The hostel itself was quite average, but they organized lots of activities for their guests. WiFi worked only in the lobby, but it was nice to have some computers that you could use freely. The location as really good!
Great place to stay if you are looking for a fun environment and things to do in Madrid! They keep their customers busy with pub crawls, city tours, and other things! I wouldn't recommend this if you are looking for a quiet night in Madrid, but if you are looking for fun nightlife, nice people and helpful staff this is the place!
I never got a confirmation email about where I would be staying so I had to book another hostel after paying my fee. Not happy.
I would recommend this hostel. The staff are very friendly and the security is good. The only bad thing I have to add is that the wifi did not work in the room. The facilities are clean and location is amazing.
