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 € 3 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

    I stayed at Cats Hostel in Porto, Portugal and loved it. Madrid was just as good! The staff is friendly and helpful, and the facilities of the Madrid hostel are great. We stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. The hostel also has a lot of great activities planned, like daily walking tours and tapa and pub crawls. Overall a really interactive atmosphere.

    So much fun! Staff was lovely (especially the bartender with the crazy mustache😆), great fun, and in the best location. I didn't need to take the metro once! Be ready to stay out until five every night and sleep past noon. The sangria fountain is just as crazy as it seems, definitely worth a visit just for that!

    It was our first stop on our interrailing trip and it couldn’t have been better thanks to Cats, the atmosphere was amazing, everything was so clean from the beds to the showers and it is very close to the centre. Drinks in the hostel bar are relatively cheap and the staff are all friendly and helpful Thanks for a great time! Will definitely go back to Cats if I go back to Madrid

    Super great hostel experience here. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. Giant lockers under the bed were super convenient and easy to use with your room key. Fantastic location, close to everything we wanted to see. And the bar there is great; definitely head down there for drinks after 8, it was the best part of our visit (maybe even start a game of rage cage).

    Great hostel. I’d heard amazing things about cats and it was just like I heard. Staff were very nice and helpful. Security of the building was great. Beds were comfortable and lockers were available for valuables. Kitchen was a bit small but there’s lots of hangout and chill out areas around. Atmosphere is awesome (pub crawl and drinking games!!). While I stayed, 80% of the showers were broken on my floor so that was unexpected. Otherwise, bathroom was spacious and clean. Location is great!

    Very great location in centro. Staff was kind esp Sergio! Lots of young people in 20s and has a bar and many lounge spaces so lots of room to strike up convo w other guests. Rooms were decent and clean enough. Bed had pillow and sheets, locker, light and outlet. No curtains on bed. I was in all female room across from the bathroom, which was loud because the bathroom has an airdryer for hands that people used at every hour of the day and night and it was loud! The showers and toilets were clean.

    If you are looking for a hostel that knows how to party this is the place for you. Dali was amazing and made me feel right at home as I was a little nervous about being in such a big crowd and meeting new people but he made it so easy!

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
