Great location, within walking distance of all the main sights and also runs its own free walking tour which is a nice touch. There's not much atmosphere during the day but that's not really an issue because Madrid is so worth spending the day exploring and anyway the atmosphere at night more than makes up for it. The bar is cheap and serves good beer so is great to meet other guests and the hostels pub crawls are great as are the staff that run the crawls. Overall would recommend.

This was an absolutely incredible hostel, great social atmosphere, staff were friendly and helpful, great party scene with the bar downstairs, really worth the value! Although it was lacking in a kitchen facility, Cats was probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at!

Honestly just a straight up party hostel, my 4 person room was fairly cramped but there were lockers and lights on the beds which is nice. Common area has no AC and no fans which was just awful. Pub crawl doesn't leave till 1am so be ready to party.

The guests can make the showers and bathrooms quite messy overnight (FYI to all who prefer showering at night!), but the amazing custodial staff keep the common areas nice and clean during the day. The desk staff were very accommodating and the atmosphere is light hearted and fun. Would definitely stay here again.

The nighlife at the bar was excellent. They had good breakfast for 2 euros. The staff had good suggestions. You are in the center of Madrid, close to 2 main metro stations. Plaza Mayor is walking distance. You get a voucher for the flamenco bar next door. If you are staying in the attic rooms, expect to sleep a lot, there are no windows, but theres AC ¨:)

Seriously was so happy wth this hostel! As a solo traveler, I was worried that I would have trouble meeting people and finding things to do in the evening. Cats made sure that wasn't the case! They have nightly pub crawls and games in the bar downstairs which make it extremely easy to meet other people and to have an awesome night. The staff was also incredible and very sweet. I highly recommend their guided walking tour, it was a neat way to see the city. Seriously loved cats.

Awesome place to go have a drink and meet new people along the way. If you are looking to enjoy a crazy time in Madrid then Cats hostel is a good place to start

Madrid during the summer is very hot - which means your room will be very hot. There is no ac. The beds are decently comfortable. The location is great. It's just outside the city. There is a bar below with some good deals but if you're in the rooms above the bar, it can be loud and disturbing when trying to sleep. So be aware that it's not perfect. There is a great central area but most people aren't talking there. The wifi is alright overall. Interesting place. Good price!

Amazing location, super clean and very sociable. The bar was always lively in the evenings and the courtyard had a more chilled atmosphere. Great hostel, would definitely recommend! :-)
