Hostelworld says

Cats Hostel Madrid Sol has been described by Hostelworld guests as a lively party hostel, with a bar downstairs. 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

You will find us right in the center of Madrid, where all the cool stuff happens. We stand out from the rest: we have 15 years of experience in helping you vibe with our city. If you are looking to discover the daily frenzy of Madrid and the wild side and people to enjoy it with, Cats Hostel Madrid Sol is your best choice.

From our door, you can easily reach 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 of exploring, there's nothing like arriving to our recently renovated and perfectly prepared facilities for a good rest.

We have a wide variety of common areas for relaxing and socializing with other travellers. You can lie down on 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 once a 17th-century Spanish palace and still retains its Andalusian patio style.

The rooms are comfortable, functional and prepared for 21st-century travellers, with personal lockers, reading lights, and power and USB outlets. You can choose between shared dormitories from 4 to 12 beds or book your own private room!

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

We offer a breakfast buffet for only for 6 euros, and we have towels to rent for 3 euros. Free Wi-Fi is available in the entire hostel. On departure day, we have secure luggage storage where bags can be left for 2 euros 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 place to sleep, we are a whole travel experience! Our guests agree that our central location, comfortable beds, and a vibrant party atmosphere will leave you wanting more! View House Rules

    Cats is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The AC worked amazing! There’s a great happy hour everyday. Overall, Cats made my whole experience in Madrid very enjoyable because it was so easy to make friends at the events they hosted.

    BEST HOSTEL BY FAR!! we started off our backpacking trip in Madrid at Cats Hostel and was by far our favourite stay. The atmosphere is amazing for young adults wanting to meet people and explore the night life Madrid has to offer. They do some really cool hostel activities; the pub crawl, ping pong tournaments, etc. Staff was amazing, 24/7 reception. All around worth every penny!! Would recommend to anyone! Will be looking for this name again in the future.

    It’s super clean… it’s like 7 star hotel. The staff are kind and nice! It’s located in the heart of the city… walking distance to supermarket, bus, metro, sightseeing places and the place is funky and every corner is picture perfect! Oh, the best part, they have free dinner! When I was there, it was Sunday and Monday free dinners 😍.

    I had a nice stay at the Cats hostel! Always something happening in the hostel, they organise activities every day. It’s a party hostel so if you want a quiet place, this is not for you. The beds don’t have curtains so not a lot of privacy.

    Solid location and space. Amazing people and wonderful staff. They provided us with towels and body wash/shampoo. My only "cons" is that the shower in our room didn't drain and the AC had to be controlled from the front desk.

    Rooms were nice, but overall a very corporate vibe, with a really forced attempt to create a 'party culture'. It made me feel uncomfortable. Pub crawls only took people to bars full of tourists and were bad value for money. I wouldn't reccomend staying here if you are looking for something approximating a real experience of Madrid.

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
