Stayed in a 6 person dorm and the room itself was very cramped. Barely any space between bunks or to access baggage. I was bit by something during the night. And my friend found one bed bug on her bed. Otherwise, easy going staff, good location, lockers in room and good free breakfast.


The room#703 had poor water pressure of shower bath tab and asked the staff to fix it but nothing happened. I hardly find any advantages compare to other hostels except location, actually some others has this. It was 4 mixed dorm and hardly think 6 dorm is better.

Is the second time I stay in this hostel. And I will definetly stay here again if I go to Madrid.


The hostel is clean and in a really good position. Everything is reachable walking. The breakfast is good, so in general the hostel is worth it for the price. The wifi wasn't working well in the rooms, but it wasn't a big problem.


I have been travelling for two months and found this hostel to be one of the poorest so far. The staff were uninterested, no maps, no activities to meet others, the rooms were small and had beds crammed together so no room to put luggage. The ensuite was incredible though and so clean! Location was also good - everything was super close.

The wifi is really bad, the place doesn't have enough capacity for all the people they have. Other than that the place is nice amd in a good location.


Staff was helpful and the facilities were clean and organized! Beds were comfortable but you might need to negotiate room temperature with whoever is in the room because it does get cold. Breakfast was helpful in the morning.

No kitchen, no good communal area only a small cafe style area downstairs where no one sits unless for the free breakfast which is toast or cardboard tasting cereal. Great location was the only upside but nothing special


I was upgraded in the middle of the night, which was bittersweet. Close to metro. Elevator broke and the front door doesn't close or lock completely. But there is 24 hour reception so only people that stay in the hostel will be able to get past them.


Only stayed for one night but that night was good. The 6 bed was a small room but giant ensuite bathroom. The location is great and it's fairly easy to find. Would stay here again.


Would not recommend this hostel. Only positive was the location. I was very disappointed in the security. The front door didn't lock and the room doors had old school keys that were difficult to lock. Bathroom was disgusting, and didn't even have hand soap. My pillow had a stain on it. Wifi was awful. Overall very disappointed in my experience


Not photo of hostel. bad wifi. Had large groups of very young kids. Bar not open most of the day and no real hang out area. Not a fun social hostel.


Not the best Hostel in the world for meet and socialize with people. But has a great location


We stayed in a 6 Bed dorm, it was a bit tight space wise but it did the job. Only complaint was that the Internet was terrible and didn't really work.

Despite the friendly staff members, one of them (girl) was unexpectedly unfriendly and i would say - quite rude.

Easy checkin. Luggage stored after checkout. Clean secure rooms. Location is PERFECT. 2 min walk to subway. 10-15 mins walk to everything to see in Madrid! Will definitely stay again!!


Place was nice and clean which was good. I liked the natural sunlight in my room and the floor plan. The only issue I had was that the wifi did not really work. Did not work at all in my room.


Great hostel in a great location!


The hostel is in standard condition. WiFi wasn't working in our room ( was one far away of the stairs). If you are looking for any luxury in the room, nothing is there. No TV. The room basically has a bed.Breakfast is ok.


Excellent location, complete breakfast, friendly staff. I had a great time in Madrid and part of this great time is attributed to Motion Hostel
