beds are a fantastic price. badging seems to be very secure and it's a great place to meet people. caters for all types, especially those who like to press their faces into plywood while sitting on the toilet! they are quite small!

A great hostel for socialising. The party doesn't get going till late but it is a great hostel.

They booked in 30 or more school children who seemed to take up the whole place. Seemed really inappropriate to have 8-12 year olds roaming around the bar etc and also ruined the atmosphere. There was a paella night and the school kids took over the whole rooftop and we were all kicked out and didn't get any paella. Shouldn't have been advertised if they had booked the whole thing. Bar is sticky and gross. Wouldn't stay again

Awesome social hostel in the centre of Madrid. The only complaint is the poor wifi. Lots of hostel activities e.g walking tours, pub crawls etc. the staff are really enthusiastic and make it easy for you meet other travelers. Rooms are good with air con and lockers. Bathrooms are smaller but cleaned regularly. Overall, we had an awesome stay here and would return!

If you want to party this is the place to stay. There is a bar on the main floor and it is packed every night and they either stay there and party or do a pub crawl. If you don't want to party I wouldn't recommend it. It is very loud and people come and go at all hours in your room. The key that is like a wrist watch is nice though. The bathrooms were ok but weren't the cleanest. The location is great though, easily walk to everything.

It took the staff over half an hour to check us in to the hostel told us to just wait while they swapped shifts. Last thing you want when you've been travelling all day. The hostel was nice but he'll was it noisy and the toilets cubicles were so small I didn't fit on the toilet. Sort it out guys.

This might be the very best hostel I have ever stayed in. So much fun, the pub crawl and the tapas tour were amazing. The staff was so chill and helpful and the people were some of the best I have ever met. I will always stay in living cats in Madrid.

It was my first stay at hostels.it was definitely the best decision!! I've met so many good people, everyone was keen to talk and hang out. Hostle organises so many different events during the day and at night. And the free walking tour is the must with Carlos :) I would stay there again!

It's a very nice hostel! The breakfast was really good and the staff was very friendly and ready to help you with whatever you may need. The location is quite good, just a couple pf blocks away from the Anton Martin metro station. Great stay at a great price. Only negative thing would be that in my room there were some couples sleeping in the same beds so the room felt a bit too crowded since the rest of the beds were also taken and so many people in one room plus the summer heat is not good.

I had an amazing time at this hostel. It is super close to everything, has its own bar, numerous activities, and a great atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable and had AC. Breakfast was simple, cereal and muffins, but that's normal. Awesome lounge area and good wifi. Would love to come back!

Nice central location. Reception is helpful however they seem a bit laid back and are in no rush to serve you. Walking tour with Carlos is excellent. The water stays cold. If you are on the top floor there is only one toilet and two showers so you will have to go downstairs. There was no hot water to shave. Great atmosphere and I met some good friends at Cats!

Great place to stay. Secure lockers. Central location. I was going solo but met loads of people . Carlos' walking tour is a must.
