Hostelworld says

Cats Hostel Madrid Sol has been described by Hostelworld guests as a lively party hostel, with a highly-praised Paella Party on weekends, plus a bar downstairs. Our visitors have recommended that guests 'definitely do the walking tour and tapas tour' to get to know Madrid. The hostel is centrally located, near La Latina, Puerta del Sol and the Prado Museum. We like their Andalucían riad-style courtyard, which many reviewers have called 'totally beautiful'.

Property Description

There’s no better way to visit Madrid than with a stay at Cats Hostel Madrid Sol. We have been creating unforgettable travel experiences for 15 years, which makes us experts! Our guests agree that our central location, comfortable beds, and a vibrant party atmosphere will leave you wanting more!

From our door, you can easily reach on foot the city’s most famous sites, like the beautiful Plaza Mayor, the lively Puerta del Sol or the world-famous Prado museum. And after a long day exploring out, there’s nothing like arriving at our facilities, recently renovated and perfectly prepared a good rest.

We have a wide variety of common areas to relax or socialize with other travelers. You can lie down in our comfortable sofas, watch a movie in the Red Room, or try our own Cats craft beer in our bar... The building will leave you speechless, it was at one time a 17th-century Spanish palace, and still retains its patio style Andalusian.

The rooms are comfortable, functional and prepared for 21st-century travelers, with personal lockers, reading lights and power outlets and USB outlets. You can choose between shared dormitories from 4 to 14 beds or book your own private room!

And what can we say about our activities? If we have to define us in a few words, we would say we are a very social hostel. Our most popular activities are the city walking tour, tapas tour, and of course our famous pub crawl. Every night we visit the best bars in the center, being this the perfect moment to meet other travelers and mix with the locals. But there's even more: depending on the season and the day, we will have karaoke nights, dance lessons and paella cooking show. The hard thing won’t be choosing what to do, but what not to do!

We offer a buffet breakfast for only € 5 and we have towels to rent for € 3. Free Wi-Fi is available in all the hostel and there are also available computers for guest use. On departure day, we have secure luggage storage where bags can be left while you get your last tastes of the city!

Our reception is open 24/7 and we will be happy to help you with any of your requests. We are not just a play to sleep, we are a whole travel experience! View House Rules

    Excellent hostel, great location and good price. The staff were very helpful and the pub crawl organised by them was fun. The reception was manned 24hrs, all the doors locked with a keycard and cages to store your valuables. The luggage store was also very good with keycard lockers.

    We absolutely loved our stay at CATS. There were ongoing renovations in the hostel so the bar and the common areas were closed for the first few nights of our stay. The staff was so helpful and we were given free breakfast and drinks at CATS chill out hostel to make up for it. We also received a room upgrade to one of their beautiful private rooms because of the renovations. I highly recommend this hostel because of how friendly the staff were and the great location!

    Last minute booking, was one of the only hostels that still had availability. Was slightly concerned that as it was a party hostel it may not have been the cleanest or most secure place, however we were pleasantly surprised. Beds were comfortable, there was secure areas to store luggage, and bathrooms were very clean. Would stay again. Sammy & Alexa

    First of, they give me a last minute notice to move from the Cats party hostel to the Cats chill out Hostel, thou they say it is very similar, getting the notice on the day when I check in give me no choice but to accept it. They will nickle and dime you for almost everything. They overbook the hostel when I stayed and went into the room to harassed everyone to show proof of check in at 2:00am in the morning twice! They were so rude and offer no apology about it. Find nicer place with your money

    Tries too hard to be a party hostel. The main terrace is nice. But if you're a girl in this place, expect to get hit on by the utter amount of dudes who come in here with the mentality of getting laid. If that's not your vibe, run The staff seems nice, but stressed and overworked and at my time there the other guests were rude and inconsiderate, as well. When I woke up, there was a 40-something guy passed out on a couch in the common area, snoring really loud. I found it funny, others may not.

Cats Hostel Madrid Sol says

Our 17th-century Andalusian/Moorish patio definitely sets us apart from other hostels in Madrid. We're the only hostel in the city with its own nightclub, plus we've got free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and more. We're located in the centre of Old Madrid, just one minute from Madrid's best nightlife, which we highly recommend to all our guests. A five-minute walk from the hostel will bring you to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. I especially recommend Puerta del Sol if you're looking for the best shopping area.
Our hostel is ideally suited for travellers looking to have a good time and get to know people from all over the world, while at the same time enjoying maximum comfort and competitive prices. If you want to party and meet new people from all over the world, this is the place to be! We've got tons of activities going on, like karaoke, games, casino, Spanish classes, flamenco and salsa classes, pub crawls, tapas tours, walking tours and much more. Marta, Director of Expansion
