Hostelworld says

Cats Hostel Madrid Lavapies is near Madrid's 'museum triangle', the bars and restaurants of La Latina and Puerta del Sol. Hostelworld reviewers tell us this 'quiet and easy-going' hostel has 'lots of common space downstairs and a great terrace when the weather is nice' which is 'awesome for meeting people from all around the world'. The hostel is frequently praised for being clean and friendly. We like that the hostel is in a corrala-style building, a traditional 19th-century design unique to Madrid.

Property Description

The location of Cats Hostel Madrid Lavapies hostel is unbeatable. We are 5 minutes’ walk from the bustling city center, Puerta del Sol, a few steps away from the triangle of museums, and the Atocha train station.

Overview

Inside the artsy Lavapiés neighbourhood, the boutique CATS Chill Out Hostel gives you a little taste of 19th-century Spanish culture. The real show-stopper is our courtyard – the centrepiece of this classic Coralla-style building, it's the place to mingle and meet new people. We've also got plenty of (more modern) social spaces: choose from co-working desks where you can settle in with your laptop if you're working remotely, to our breezy rooftop terrace for basking underneath the sunny Spanish skies.

Location

It only takes 37 minutes to get to our chilled-out hostel from Madrid Airport. We're just 8 minutes by foot from the central Puerta del Sol plaza in the city centre, and from there you can hop on the C3, C4 and Intercity trains as well as metro lines 1 (blue), 2 (red) and 3 (yellow). Our neighbourhood, Lavapiés, is a lively melting pot where traditional tavernas sit side by side next to exotic eateries. In August, the neighbourhood goes wild for the San Lorenzo feast day, with bars and restaurants setting up stalls in the streets.

Rooms and Dorms

With private rooms, small dorms and large dorms, we've got something for everyone, whether you're a social butterfly or craving peace and quiet. We've got female-only or male-only rooms too. Every bed has free linen, a reading lamp and three electrical outlets so you can charge every device you own. Lockers with electric keys keep your bags safe while you're out taking on Madrid. And for a little extra privacy, some of our rooms have en-suites.

Extras and activities

At our 24-hour reception, friendly staff are happy to offer tips to help you get the most out of your stay. If you fancy partying like a true madrileño, join us on our epic pub crawl. We also do craft beer and tapas tours for a little local flavour. And, although breakfast isn't included, it is available every morning in our cosy bar-slash-reception. With its soft couches and fully stocked bar, it's a great place to relax.

    Hostel con una buena ubicacion, a pocos minutos de sitios importantes y turisticos, tiene un ambiente agradable para conocer y socializar con otros viajeros, me gusto que ofrecen el servicio de loker con la misma llave de la habitacion. Les faltaria mejorar un poco el roof-top pero de resto muy bueno!

    Fantastic neighborhood, close to a supermarket and metro stations and bars. Staff were half/half for me, some went out of their way to be kind and helpful and the others were rude like I was bothering them when I tried to ask about my towel that was stolen in plain view of a camera. Overall a great hostel for the price!

    originally booked the lavapies and had no contact to say the hostel had shutdown/ moved for renovation, they did give free breakfast tho so wasn't a huge deal, beds weren’t that comfortable, day time vibe wasn’t as good as night times, but the activites they offer, location and staff were great

    I stayed in this hostel for four nights and it was fine. The room was really tiny and it kind of seemed like they never sweeped the floor of the bedroom but except for that the hostel was mostly clean. I did the Walking Tour that the hostel offers and it was great to meet other travellers and get to know the city. Also, the location is really good as you can reach the Puerta de Sol within a few minutes by foot. The only thing that I did not like was the kitchen. It was small and not very clean.

    Was grottier than was expecting for the price - as it’s not the cheapest of the hostels. Staff were a bit unhelpful and they have now started changing to keep your luggage.

    I accidentally booked at cats chill instead of cats party hostel and was disappointed by the more outdated feeling common spaces. I also came with two friends who’s room was ready before mine. I had to wait to check in at the normal time but hung out in my friends room with them (nobody else was checked into their room) the staff ran up and asked me to come downstairs which was a little uncomfortable. I understand safety but I was clearly only with friends and also a guest there.

    It was a good experience. The hostal is very clean, the facilities are good and the staff was very helpfull. However, the atmosphere was pretty bad, very calm for me. We had to go to the other hostel, just around the corner to had some fun. But it you ask me about it...the hostal is good.

Cats Hostel Madrid Lavapies says

The hostel was constructed in the typical style of 19th century Madrid and has so many common spaces where you can meet people, like the terrace, solarium, bar and the gym. We've got a lot of little extras to our guests that put us ahead of other hostels, like 24hr reception, air conditioning, free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, TV and the laundry room.
We're located right in the centre of Madrid and from here you can discover nearly all the most famous monuments, museums (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen are a 10-minute walk) and beautiful squares of Madrid, all within walking distance. And if you don't want to go out, we've got activities onsite as well, like karaoke, games, casino, Spanish classes, flamenco and salsa classes, pub crawls, tapas tours, walking tours and much more.
I think we're ideally suited for travellers that want to experience all that Madrid has to offer and live for a few days as a true Madrileño. Just remember - Madrid never sleeps! Marta, Director of Expansion
