It's a big, impersonal 'hotel' (guests avoiding eye contact and conversation, except with their companions). The reception process was unwelcoming, breakfast was meager (just American white bread and packaged butter and jam, and thin orange juice). No effort to create a social milieu. Showers on second floor were 50% out of order. On the plus side, the cleaning ladies were friendly, and there were metro connections were nearby.
Great location, nice common area and friendly staff. The hostel is very big, and there are a lot of young student groups, so sometimes it feels a bit like camp.The breakfast is very poor (but free), bathrooms are clean and there are a lot of them. Our room (6 bed female) was basic but quite ok. Keep in mind that the first people to arrive get to choose their beds in the room, and it's important because ladders leading to top bunks are very uncomfortable. The overall ambience was fun and sociable
My friend and me really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. Pub crawl was really nice and I definetely recommend it. Hostel was very clean. Staff were very friendly, especially the mexican partyboy Roberto vuhuuu...
I have travelled alone, in a couple, with friends for over 4 years and have to say this hostel, was one of the best. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were immaculate, the location was very good and the price was cheap! One not to miss.
The place - rooms, common areas, bathrooms - were all so clean, as well as the towels and bedclothes. Gran Vía was very close Given the size of the hostel the kitchen was quite small but there were numerous cheap cafés and eateries on the door step which appealed even more! Breakfast was also very sufficient - an added bonus!

The amount of activities that the hostel planned were great, but I kind of like doing my own thing so I only attended the flamenco show, which was cool. The "free breakfast" didn't really offer a lot- four pieces of toast and coffee or orange juice... It was kind of lacking compared to other hostels I stayed in. The location was nice- close to a lot of metro stops, but you could walk to Plaza del sol in like 20 minutes if you wanted.
Estuve en el hostel el 7 enero de 2015 y todo muy limpio y un ambiente muy bueno. Las habitaciones son grandes y los lockers tambien por lo que puedes guardar tus cosas comodamente. I have been in the hostel on 07.01.2015 and I am so glad to have chosen it, the beds are really nice and clean and the environment is nice. big rooms, good beds, clean, big lockers and the personal helpful. so I highly recommend it.

Nice hostel, very clean and staff is friendly. Although you don't need to take the subway to visit the main attractions, it's not in the best location as you do need to walk at least 15-20 minutes to get to the attractions. Wi-fi didn't work in 2 of my 3-day stay. Basic breakfast is way too basic. All beds have their own plug and light and also curtains.
Very clean and spacious hostel. The location is not as prime as Mad or Cats, but the cleanliness makes up for it.
Just about everything g here was "out of order" during my stay. In a two day span, I was without wi-fi, had to walk five flights of stairs due to problems with the elevator, and our rooms were absolutely freezing due to the heat supposedly having problems. Location was great, but the negatives truly outweighed this benefit. Will look for a different hostel the next time I'm in Madrid.
The hostel is really good, it makes your stay in Madri much better. The staff is reallreally cool. One of the best hostels I've been in Europe. Breakfast is also quite good.
Facilities of the kitchen aren't very good. Kitchen is always a mess. The fridge is in terrible condition. I've been in other hostels and somehow they manage to deal with these things. I think that lack of commitment by staff is main reason for this. It came also clear that the staff doesn't consider working in "tourism industry" so question like "where to eat?" made difficulties to answer.
Huge hostel, and very commercial. The atmosphere was not particularly welcoming, but not unfriendly either. They give you sheets to make your own bed, which was pretty tricky on a top bunk - especially since the ladder was horrible. I almost fell off a few times. The wifi sucks. I couldn't only connect half the time I was there. The only other complaint I have is the kitchen: the only pan had no handle, and no one cleaned after themselves so it was a bit of a wreck.
Very clean and new hostel plenty of bathrooms and toilets. Good location everything is walking distance no need to catch the metro at all. Didn't try the breakfast so can't give a review. Overall very good and would definitely stay again.
The hostel is safe and clean ,the kichen is big and clean.I like the hostel's style but the stuff is not so enthusiastic like i image.But it's still a good hostel.
This was a wonderful hostel with great amenities like movie room, kitchen, cleaning facilites and clean. It was ideal for travellers and Taylor and the Lithuanian girls were helpful and brilliant. Christmas dinner was brilliant and an excellent vibe thanks to Taylor, Gintare and all involved. Muchas gracias
