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

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, tapas tour, 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, and a paella cooking show. The hard thing won't be choosing what to do, but what not to do!

We offer a breakfast buffet for only for 5 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

    This was a great hostel. I wished that our dorm room didn't smell so bad. It also didn't have a window or fresh air. I loved everything else about it.

    Great location, safe, clean and social side was a vibe. Bar crawl is really good but for €20 so might not want to do every night. Staff were all helpful

    Cats hostel is such a fun place to stay. There is a pub crawl every night (a tad expensive at 20€ but a fun night nonetheless), and it is so easy to meet new people. The staff is friendly and fun and encourages you to be social. This hostel is only a 7m walk from plaza mayor and plaza del sol and about 15-20m up the street from the train station. I absolutely would stay here again and recommend it to anybody traveling in madrid!

    I had the time of my life it was my first time solo travelling such a beautiful hostel and so clean and safe. I would reccomend going to the bar at about 9:30/10 it’s a great way to make friends and the pub crawl starts there so if the friends you make are going on the pub crawl you can join in too. Such a great time

    Great hostel with an unique set up, the building itself is worth staying a night! Breakfast is definitely a very nice extra worth paying and a visit to the bar downstairs is something you would not regret! Location is amazing and staff is very helpful and friendly. Beds and rooms incl. Bathroom are really clean and comfortable

    This is a great hostel with a great atmosphere. It could not have been situated in a better location. The rooms were clean, spacious and equipped with secure lockers, ensuite and personal bed lights/charging point. The showers are incredible. Common spaces are good but sadly there is no stove in the kitchen. I really recommend doing the Pub Crawl if you want to meet new people, it is well organised and great fun! I will definitely return to Cats on my next visit to Madrid!

    Staff were super helpful. Location about 10 mins away from the main centre which was good. Kitchen is only a fridge and a microwave so if you cook In a lot it’s not ideal. Good music played in the bar area with organised pub crawls. Beds comfy with usb chargers near by. Good hot showers and lots of them.

    If you are looking to meet people you should go to the bar crawl! The front desk staff wasn't very friendly but the bartender and bar crawl staff are amazing and fun.

    It's a beautiful hostel, very well located, but I think the ambiance it's more like a young hotel. I liked it tho! Mar, the girl from reception she's super nice, and the blond girl of the bar as well! :)

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
