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. On departure day, we have secure luggage storage where bags can be left for € 2 all day, 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

    Amazing hostel!! I loved the social atmosphere and the pub crawls are so much fun. It’s also close to everything so I hardly ever needed to take public transport! 10/10 would recommend 🙂

    I screwed my self over with not booking an extra day, I came at 2:30 in the morning trying to check in, the front desk saw how scared I was. Assured me that I’d be okay, and was able to get me into a bed a lot earlier than my check in time (my check in time was 7pm) THANK YOU! They also held my stuff for me while I was able to go out and party .

    A very good hostel in a patrimonial building, but you have to pay 5 euros if you want the breakfast.

    Great place for brand new solo travelers. Lots of events focused around getting people together and the bar is great place to start up a conversation. The bathrooms were big with lots of shower and toilet stalls which made getting ready easily. Short walk away from plaza mayor and close to the metro

    Cats hostel was very good. Raquel I think her name is the only lady at front desk was so pleasant and always smiling. She really helped and assisted me in looking for things I do and places to eat. Unfortunately the a/c was not working but fortunately we didn’t need it. Facility was good. Have to walk a little way to the toilets which can be challenging in the night. Other than that great hostel. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    I stayed here for 3 nights, the rooms was good and also the bathrooms. They have a bar inside which is a plus. A part from that nothing more special, there is no activities to integrated with others travellers. It’s looks like hotel/hostels. The staff was not friendly. I wouldn’t go back.

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
